Black Autumn - End

Black Autumn

Review by Elek Malcolm-Madill

Genre/s: Blackened Noise, Dark Ambient, Depressive Suicidal Black Metal
For Fans Of: Xasthur, Moëvöt, Striborg

German one man band “Black Autumn” is an excellent mixing of elements of harsh noise, dark ambient, and black metal. Largely disorganized and engendering a feeling of hopelessness, “End” makes great use of the signature aspects of black metal's distorted bass and guitars while also reaching peaks of ridiculously fast segments and then masterfully transitioning back into a somewhat relaxed valleys of dark ambient- before throwing you back into it's chaotic mess of synths, strings, and blast beats that you just can't seem to get enough of.
