Chicago’s own progressive death/doom outfit Novembers Doom released their eighth full-length album today entitled Aphotic on The End Records. Coinciding with this release the band has also made a music video available for the track What Could Have Been. The song features guest vocals from Anneke Van Giersbergen, who has previously worked with big names like Ayreon, Napalm Death, Moonspell, Devin Townsend, Within Temptation, and her own band, The Gathering. A rip-roaring, aggressive metal track What Could Have Been is not (you will find plenty of those on the rest of Aphotic, though) but it’s worth a viewing or two. Watch:
In addition to Anneke Van Giersbergen, Aphotic features guest appearances from renowned violinist Rachel Barton Pine (Earthen Grave) and the might Dan Swano, who adds his vocal touch to the track Of Age And Origin.
