Autumn - Altitude (2009)

Autumn is one of my favorite bands coming from the Netherlands, Solar Wake from their Summer’s End album is in my top 30 songs of all time. After hearing that Nienke de Jong left the band in 2008 for health reasons, I was eagerly waiting to see how they sound with their new vocalist.

While the new singers vocals are a great fit for Autumn’s gothic metal style, this album marks their progression into a more gothic rock style since their music has a more mainstream feeling and I would not be amazed if they reach the popularity levels that bands like Lacuna Coil and Within Temptation have.

This album is excellently produced and it showcases a really mature style of music that only a band with years of performing and playing together has. All songs have catchy melodies and keep the listener engaged in the music and hoping the album never ends.

In overall I can say that this album will please all of Autumn’s fans and it will help Autumn reach a broader audience, and they deserve this indeed.
