The Austrian scene lately insists on Gothic Rock and it seems like this young label preference is more likely oriented towards a rather domestic music. This very quartet is just at the debut, after three well received demos yet not quite properly brought into mass media attention. Having some connection with BLACK PROPHECY (Death Metal) or DARKSIDE (Dark Metal), AUTUMN CLAN is adept of a commercial Rock with a normal clear calm and enjoyable voice, the sound has certain Metallic openings but rather Gothic and instrumental division practically reminds me of CEMETARY or even PARADISE LOST. I actually enjoyed the material, at a first audition, as it sounds good, pretty rhythmic and probably perfect for a recital. From stimulation point of view...I guess it is full stop which is the same for the stylistic identity. But, in the end, it is just a band with a commercial sound which, due to its style, might attract simplistic melodic Gothic Rock fans' attention.
