    Yep, another thread, this one is about how people got into this awsome band. For me, i was watching metal videos On Demand and the tital "Autem Reflections" caught my eye. IT was on Fuse On Demand and i loved it. I instantly went to my favorite metal review site, the Metal Observer, and cheacked out the reviews, there were 4 reviews up. The Knowing, with a 7.5/10, To Welcome The Fade with a 9/10, The pale haunt departure with an 8.5, and the Novella Resivior with a 7.5. I then went to my local music store and had them order me the special edition of To Welcome The Fade, since it was rated highest. I throughly enjoyed it. I was now convinced that this was a band to follow and have purchased many albums since.

    I went to the New Jersey Metal & Hardcore Fest in 2003 for Nevermore, Dimmu Borgir, Strapping Young Lad, and The Devin Townsend Band.

    I was introduced to ND and Novembre at the same time. I got the names confused, and associated the music of Novembre (that doesn't appeal to me) with both bands. Then a few months before Chicago Powerfest '07 I decided to try ND again and was pleasantly surprised. :p

    I ate a box of cracker jack, and at the bottom was a Novembers Doom Tattoo!

    When I was 15, I was skimming through endless hordes of death metal bands. I almost gave up on the genre with all the absolute trash I heard coming from vocalists. Then I heard "Swallowed By The Moon" on some Metal radio stream online and almost crapped myself with how great he sounded.

    I was introduced to ND in 2005 by reading a review of TPHD by Vera Matthijsen in Rock Tribune and http://www.lordsofmetal.nl/showreview.php?id=5943&lang=en
    Bought my first CD(TWTF+FELTF edition) in September 2005 during a Nevermore gig in Antwerp (Belgium).
    Read about a performance of ND on a Progfestival in Oct 2005, which they had to cancel.
    Started buying the other CD's, and finally saw them live in the Biebob in Nov 2006.
    Afterwards i saw them during the DVD-recording in Nov 2007, the acoustic gig in Antwerp (2007) at Graspop and Metalzone Summer fest (2008).
    Bought my last CD(AIHM), in the summer of 2008. I've got 4 T-shirts and 2 longsleeves.

    I got to know them because I was send a promo of " The Novella Reservoir" to review for Aardschok magazine. I had to review 7 other bands that month. After hearing the other promo's I was blown away by what I heard on "TNR". I played it every day several times for the next weeks and gave it a 96/100. Since that moment ND is one of my favorite bands. Can't wait to hear the new one!

    I read a review of The Novella Reservoir on Transcending The Mundane. Heard a couple of tracks off the net and then went out and bought TNR followed by The Pale Haunt Departure and To Welcome The Fade.

    I mainly got into ND after talking to Lee/Pate about them in early 07 (I think) and I remember ordering the special TNR package thing which was awesome!

    Just before the Novella Reservoir came out. I checked out the link to download Drown the Inland Mere and was blown away. A few months later their name popped into my head and I watched a video for Pale Haunt on youtube and ordered the album (January 07)

    When I met Will in New Jersey, the only thing audible over the passionate embrace was the awesomeness of ND.

    about a week after TNR came out a buddy of mine and I were cd shopping and he picked it up because he read a review that said something about for fans of Opeth. we listened to the cd on the way home and after the first 2 tracks I turned around so I could buy the other copy :p

    A year or so before TWTF came out a buddy of mine told me about ND and said to get the Knowing. I bought it and really dug what I heard. I got TWTF as soon as it came out, and was really blown away.

    Haha, it was actually the name and the cover art of TWTF that got me interested.

    I was in FYE and noticed The Novella Reservoir and it looked appealing to me and just bought it for the hell of it.

    ND are local for me, so I have heard the name for MANY years.
    I know they played Milwaukee Metalfest one year I went, though I couldn't tell you 100% if I saw them live or not, because when you literally lay your eyes on 50+ bands in one day, it's hard to remember them all.

    I have to be honest, I had a misconception for many years that ND were a gothic metal band.

    Around 2004, I received The Knowing in a CD trade and was pleasantly surprised.
    I then picked up Pale Haunt when it came out, and then went to see them live for the first time in the summer of 2005.

    I have been a big fan ever since.
