Novarium is a Washington D.C., USA.-based gothic metal outfit founded in 2013 marrying elements of doom, progressive, and symphonic metal with the dark ambience of synth and orchestral elements in a way that La Suricate Magazine (Belgium) describes as “…music that cleverly mixes sweetness with aggressiveness.”
Comprised of vocalist, Lisa D’Arcangelis, bassist Carey White, drummer D. Anthony, and guitarists Sean Gronholt and Dean Michaels, the band has shared the stage with such notable acts as Hanzel und Gretyl, Genitorturers, and Amorphis, among others. In 2017, the band earned a guest spot on the Infektion Divinum tour with industrial/black metal band, Psyclon 9.
Following the success of their debut album, Omicron, released in 2016, the band wasted no time in bringing their style of sonic therapy to the masses. In 2018, the band paid homage to gothic metal titans, Type O Negative, by releasing their rendition of “Christian Woman”, which has been a featured staple of Sirius XM Liquid Metal’s “Corridor of Covers.” In their first original offering since Omicron, the band released the single, “Virus” from their EP, Stain of A Soul, followed by their first official music video for the track, helmed by Zenbeast Media (GOZU, The Machinst).
With an invigorated lineup, by 2023 the band released a new single titled, “The Phoenix”, with an accompanying music video directed by acclaimed director/producer, Tom Flynn (All That Remains, I Prevail, Lamb of God), filmed in Long Island, New York. Currently hard at work on their second full-length album, plans for tours throughout 2023 are currently underway.
The band proudly endorses ESP guitars, Sinister Guitar Picks, and Soultone cymbals.
