This band catched our interest with their promising self-titled debut EP earlier this year. This is the band of two Australian muscians by the names of Sorrow and Anguish, and being fans of Sorrow’s other work in other projects (Germ, Austere, Naxzul, Grey Waters etc.), we instantly knew it would be good. This time he teamed up with the session live guitarist from his solo project Germ.
While their EP walked down a traditional path of depressive post-black metal, Autumn’s Dawn has evolved their sound more into their own. In many ways ‘Gone’ shows a more accessible side of themselves, and at times sounds like Grey Waters meets the Finnish metal scene with bands such as Insomnium and Sentenced. They experiments with different vocal styles and genres, and handles all of them in a beautiful way. Even though I’m not 100% sure if they have found their right place yet, they are definitely heading towards an interesting territory. Be sure to check out ‘Gone’, and keep an eye out for Autumn’s Dawn.
