New album "Welkin Shores Burning" out on November 27th!
The duo, who was formed in 1997, combines the elements of post-rock, black metal, trip hop and singer-songwriter to a unique and experimental metal style. With an impressive back catalogue of six highly acclaimed records to date, they became the masters of transformation: From the black/death/folk- infused debut "DämmerElbenTragödie" over depressive metal in "Bleak", experimental trip rock of the "Mute Boy Sad Girl", melancholic alternative post-rock you will find in "Words are not what they seem", the crushing dark metal piece "Perdition Diaries", to their latest magnum opus filled with a dramatic melancholy that is "Every sun is fragile", AUTUMNBLAZE dress every heavy sound into a poetic darkness.
"Each Autumnblaze album is a scored chapter of our lives." The band comments. "Welkin Shores Burning sounds like an ethereal journey through the stormy ocean of our souls, churning up long forgotten memories and fettered yearnings.
Musically we are exploring new ground, leaving the beaten tracks of the past. There’s an outrageous coherence you won’t find on any other Autumnblaze record and an insatiable desire for living our musical vision. We think it’s also the most melodic album we have ever written.“
"Welkin Shores Burning" was recorded and produced with forging passion by Markus and Arisjel in Moonspark Studio from Spring until Autumn 2019, and was mixed and mastered in January/February 2020 by Matti (the night) Reinola. The stunning, sophisticated cover artwork was painted by Friederike Myschik.
