Autumn Black - Beneath The Shadows Review

by Mike Rapin

According to my editor, our publisher has labeled me as the "hardcore*" kid. I can see why; in this world of metalcore over-abundance, Beneath The Shadows is severely good.

Combining a mix of light screams with very well put together balanced harmonious tones; Autumn Black reminds me what good metalcore should be.

And although the screams are light, the vocals are far from bad. The over-abundance of palm-muting with a lead over top never, and I mean never, gets old throughout this CD.

Then, of course, the breakdowns. Two words: Hell yes. This album is full of mindless breakdowns and wholesome leads that make my thoughts hardcore dance. If I had telepathy, my thoughts would cause entire stadiums of people to hardcore dance. It's that powerful.

This entire album makes me love what I do simply because good music in such a popular genre of music come few and far between, and I will say that Autumn Black's Beneath The Shadows has impressed me enough to say "wow."

Track Listing:
1. Salvation
2. Ashes
3. Nameless
4. In the Name of a Rose
5. Remembrance
6. Beneath the Shadows
7. Breathe for Me
8. Eyes of a Darkened Past
9. Ode to the Forgotten
10. Rise to Fall
11. Buried in Silence
12. Mind Control

[* don't recall saying that but if I did, it had nothing to do with the music form of hardcore and more to do with what can be found in your DVD collection - pub ]
