Ax/Glare Of Autumn/RuneFire Records/2007 EP Review


  This  is  a  review  of  another  recording  from  Ax  with  the  musical  style  this  time  around  being  atmospheric,  ambient  black  metal  with  the  ep  being  called  "Glare  Of  Autumn"  and  released  by  RuneFire  Records  in  the  year  of  2007.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  no  fast  drumming  or  blast  beats  being  present on  this  recording,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark  tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow to  mid  paced  ambient  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark  and  atmospheric  sounding  with  a  good  amount  of  melody  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  soft  and  clean  playing,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  and  atmospheric  sounding  black  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams,  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  dying,  nature  and eclipse  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  with  some  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  release  from  Ax  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  atmospheric,  ambient  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "October  Winds"  and  "Your  Time  To  Die".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
