An Autumn For Crippled Children are a band from the Netherlands that plays a post form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Eternal" which was released by Wickerman Recordings.
Atmospheric sounding synths start off the album and they also bring in elements of ambient and post rock while also mixing in with the more heavy and melodic musical style a few seconds later and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording while the vocals are mostly depressive high pitched black metal screams.
Clean playing along with elements of shoegaze can be heard in certain sections of the recording while the guitar solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion d all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction while also mixing in a more modern style of black metal and no fast parts or blast beats are ever utilized.
An Autumn For Crippled Children plays a style of post black metal that is very atmospheric as well as incorporating a great amount of shoegaze elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover depression, anguish, anger, hate, and love themes.
In my opinion An Autumn For Crippled Children are a very great sounding post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eternal Youth" "Farewell" "Days of Sleep" and "Matters of The heart". 8 out of 10.
