||It seems that within the last year, that
there has been many unsigned bands that have put out CDs that have
the sound of classic death metal. Black
Autumn is another one of these unsigned bands. It is great to
hear the sound of the late eighties and early nineties come back.
With such bands as Suffocation, Brutality and Cynic no longer with
us or, on what seems to be a permanent hiatus, its good to see some
bands to try to pick up the slack. Its not that Black Autumn is a
classic death metal band, is that if they were around back in the
day that they would be thought of when people would say classic death
metal. I was pleased with the majority of "Synthetic Deity."
"Nosferatu I The Feeding," "Nosferatu II The Cleansing,"
"Center For Disease Corruption," and the title track "Synthetic
Deity" all were good songs. Especially with Nosferatu I, there
was something about that song that really kicked my ass. Black Autumn
is another band that I'd like to see what they do next. Another release
might get them signed to a label like Olympic or Pavement, those labels
seem to have a few classic metal bands among their ranks. If you want
to check out some new music check out this band. They have a website
that you can visit at http://www.blackautumn.com.
