Vent d' Automne/Everything Is Fading Away/Cvlminis/2012 EP Review


  Vent  d'  Automne  are  a  1  man  band  from  India  that  plays  a  very  experimental  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2012  ep  "Everything  Is  Fading  Away"  which  was  released  by  Cvlminis.

  "Escaping  The  Crowd"  begins  with  some  slow  and  primitive  post  black  metal  guitar  riffs  which  leads  up  to  some  programmed  beats  and  high  pitched  screams  and  you  can  hear  elements  of  shoegaze  being  utilized  in  the  song  as  well  as  some  experimental  sound  effects  in  the  background  and  the  song  closes  with  some  soft  sounding  ambient  synths.

"Big  City  Depression"  begins with  some  soft  sounding  acoustic  guitar  playing which  utilizes  both  finger  picking  and  full  chords  and  a  few  seconds  alter  fast,  raw  and  primitive  guitar  riffs,  drum  programming  and  grim  sounding  depressive  black  metal s creams  start kicking  before  the  music  starts  slowing  down  for  a  few  seconds  before  going  back  to  the  cleaner  parts  for  a  short  time  before  adding  in  some  heavy  and  melodic  guitar  riffing  before  going  back  to  being  fast  and  primitive  again.


  "I  Dream  Of  Flying  Away"  begins  with  some  clean  acoustic  guitar  playing which  has  a  an  avant  garde  feeling  to them  before  adding  in  some  synths,  fast  and  primitive  guitar  riffs,  programmed  drum b eats  and  clean  singing  melodic  female  vocals  and  the  song  closes  with  some  atmospheric  and  dark  ambient  sounding synths.

  "Beautiful  Urban  Panic"  begins  with  the  sounds  of  people  walking  and  talking     before  adding  in  some drone  sounding  guitar  riffs  along with  some  programmed  beats  a  few  seconds  later  and  the  music  is  all  instrumental  and  you  can  hear  sound  effects  throughout  the  song.

  Song lyrics  cover  filthy  urban  life,  isolation  and  agoraphobia ,  while  th e production  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  Vent  d,  Automne  are  a  very  great  sounding  experimental  black  metal  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  ""Escaping  The  Crowd"  and  "I  Dream  Of  Flying  Away".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
