Novere is grounded in the gloomy sound of early postmetal. It explores the universe of human emotions and mental struggles, mixing elements of doom black metal and postrock that creates a mix of raw noisy sounds and delicate melancholic downbeats.
Based in North London and formed in 2020, Novere is a collaboration of international musicians who were brought together by the desire to venture into the sonic paths of dark, slow and heavy music.
We believe music is beautiful when it’s real. Heavier when it’s vulnerable. Powerful when it’s true. FFO: Amenra, Mastodon, Neurosis, Isis. The track Icarus,
After releasing their first EP Soulless Elements at the beginning of the year, Novere is back with their new single Icarus which further pushes the band down into that post-metal melancholy that is becoming their signature sound.
Icarus is a one-track story about rejecting dogmas that limit and dwarf our human existence. These social, political, or religious constraints tear our minds as invisible chains and drive our paths like a yoke.
The title was chosen with clear reference to Greek mythology, to celebrate the rebellious protagonist who despite odds, defied the sun and aimed to reach the gods.
The ultimate message behind the song is that even after being condemned by those around him, Icarus, as an individual, will remain untouchable, standing behind his own truth, feeling real in his pain.
Over these 8 minutes of music, Novere tries to bring the listeners through a dense emotional journey, exposing them up to the heat of the sun before crashing them down to the icy water of the sea where the body of Icarus ends up lying. The track Farewell,
