A kaleidoscopic plummet into the depths of despair and regret. AUTUMN'S DAWN create a 9-song cycle of dark, emotive energy, dynamically spanning depressive rock, post-black metal, and plenty in between. 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.

Jewelcase CD with 12p booklet, silver print on noble black paper.
All yearning embittered, the flesh is shed, the Journey ends. AURVANDIL returns with "Thrones" carved in stone and snow, distillating the essence of soaring, northern purity throughout four hymns of Iron and Ice, four funereal storms summoned. Skyclad and possessed, AURVANDIL weaves a wyrd of holocaust. Glacial Black Metal.
LISTEN to Thrones
" GERM is the solo project of Tim ( Austere, Grey Wathers, ex-Nazxul ) and is everything fans of an emotive style of heavy music could have hoped for ! "
Simply pure genious.
Aurvandil play a kind of mid-paced, trancey Black Metal with a lot of haunting melodies and atmosphere. There is more than a slight similarity to Agalloch with the brooding soundscapes and the muted sound to the guitars that turns them into more a melodic than rhythm instrument. Acoustic breaks, moody epic compositions, and vocals mixed low so they sound like they are coming from far away or deep inside the frozen Earth. While none of the compositions really transcends and becomes great, this is a very solid and enjoyable disc with no weak points or breaks in the mood. Solid, but not really exciting.
