Jason McCraw (Monotonija) So... Through The Rusted Gates Of Time is damn near one of the best tracks I've ever heard in any genre of music. This song, within its lyrical excellence and its musical language, speaks the very essence of my own dark heart. What a spectacular adventure in sound all the way through! Favorite track: Through The Rusted Gates Of Time.
ProgHog231 thumbnail
ProgHog231 Nicely done metal that is very approachable. Most clean vocals with occasional hardcore-ish passages. Big minor chords and melodic instrumentals. Favorite track: Blank Stare, Dead Eyes.
Spinebrain thumbnail
Spinebrain I needed to own a physical copy of the s/t EP, the rest will be investigated soon. Favorite track: The Ashes Of A Life.
FLESH MECHANIC Summer post-black metal full of unrequited love and lack of will to live. Favorite track: The Ashes Of A Life.
RottingChris thumbnail
RottingChris Yeeehaw! Depressive Rock/BM at its best. The logical continuation of "Grey Waters". Heartbreaking melancholic demise - time to die with the last rays of the fading sun... Favorite track: Gone.

Dawn 02:46
Gone 04:46


Very aptly titled, Gone is a kaleidoscopic plummet into the depths of despair and regret. Upon a foundation of melancholic melody, AUTUMN'S DAWN create a 9-song cycle of dark, emotive energy, dynamically spanning depressive rock, post-black metal, and plenty in between. Most of Gone's song titles - "Until My Heart Corrodes With Rust", "Grace of the Grave", "When the Sun Sets for the Last Time", and "Blank Stare, Dead Eyes" among them - vividly portray its contents, and the bright 'n' balanced production illuminates every shadowy corner. Although Gone is AUTUMN'S DAWN's debut album, the Australian duo are hardly newcomers: vocalist/drummer Sorrow is the mastermind behind the critically acclaimed Germ, and did time in cult OZBM bands like Austere, Woods of Desolation, and Nazxul among others. In many ways, AUTUMN'S DAWN in general and Gone in particular can be seen as a more refined version of Grey Waters, a short-lived yet celebrated band of Sorrow; in other ways, one can imagine Sentenced and Mono squaring off with Germ and Austere. Any way you describe it, Gone is the end...and the beginning.
