Review: Black Autumn's upcoming MCD "The Advent October"
Black Autumn, Doom/Black Metal band from Germany will be releasing a new MCD through label Bylec-Tum in January 2013 and it will be called The Advent October. For those who don't know, Black Autumn were born in 1995 as a two-member band and by then they were influenced by bands like Emperor and Satyricon. Today, there is only one member remaining, M. Krall, and the band plays Doom, Ambient Black Metal.
The MCD is composed by 4 tracks, all of them very melodic and consistent.
Artwork cover shows us desolated greyish woods and skies.
The whole work is the perfect soundtrack for a solitary travel in the Autumn rain and cold. All the songs are very musical and have very well achieved melancholy and solitude expressions, it is a masterpiece.
First track The Advent October is very slow and melodic and matches the atmospheric sounds with acoustic sounds. It's very peaceful for two minutes, before it develops into a very sad and strong melody where voice takes part too.
Second and third tracks follow the same line. Last track A Silver Line of Light is maybe the most remarkable one. Starting with a piano interlude, then little by little all the other elements are introduced in there until it becomes a very powerful song.
If you expect melancholic strong and powerful songs you will like this MCD for sure. It's very pleasant and enjoyable, not trivial. Voice is just perfect, no other voice would match better with this songs. And it's only one month away!
