"November Coming Fire emerged out of the Canterbury Hardcore scene in Kent, England, in 2001 and quickly became one of the most respected bands of the scene through their intense live shows and debut MCD Black Ballads (released 2003).The MCD itself didn’t do anything particularly original, but it did show to those who listened how passionate and dedicated November Coming Fire are as a band, and the hard work they put into the album and touring earnt them support slots with bands such as Converge, Terror and Give Up the Ghost."
Take the raw energy of Ceremony, throw in some progressive metal sounding metalcore riffs like Converge, and give it a sludge undertone by throwing in some Hang The Bastard and this is essentially November Coming Fire. As lame as the name sounds, the band definitely goes above and beyond in terms of making a great addition to the hardcore/metalcore scene. Just as any metalcore band in their line of work, November Coming Fire uses very little emphasis on breakdowns and more on having real progressive riffs followed by sludge breakdowns and having a very chaotic hardcore/mathcore feel to it. I'm not a fan of anything mathy at all so if this is getting praise from me you know it's gotta be good. Seeing the bands they tour with and the recognition they're getting, you know they're the real deal. If you're looking for some sick progressive metalcore this satisfy your needs.
