Metal Blade Records signs Autumn

Official press release: Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of rising gothic metal band from the Netherlands, Autumn. Unlike their competitors in the overcrowded scene with female fronted metal bands, Autumn deliver something original, that is everything but cliché. Autumn infuses their music with a groove not present in other bands in the genre. Guitarist Jens van der Valk comments: "We're delighted to have the opportunity to work with Metal Blade in securing a strong position at the front lines of female fronted gothic metal/rock, both for Autumn and Metal Blade. After having worked with major labels Sony and Universal for our previous CD's, we're convinced the right move for us is to team up with a record label that has its feet firmly planted in the heavier scene, while retaining power and flexibility in an ever changing musical environment. We couldn't have wished for a better partner and we're confident that, with Metal Blade's renowned commitment and power to strike, we'll go far with this relationship! On a personal note: it sort of feels like coming home, since I've been affiliated with Metal Blade in the past, during my years in God Dethroned. That's been an experience that has remained my benchmark for a healthy business relationship and I can't wait to pick up where we left off and get this show on the road!" Autumn recently completed recording their third album "My New Time." Produced by Arno Krabman at Graveland Studio, the album is currently being mixed by Jochem Jacobs at Split Second Sound Studio. Having worked with Arno and Jochem, it’s obvious the sound of the album will be powerful, transparent and heavy. "We've laid down 11 tracks at Graveland Studio with producer Arno Krabman behind the dials. These are some of the most diverse, groovy and powerful Autumn songs to date. Needless to say, we're thrilled with the results so far! The new line-up has outdone itself and has seen the Autumn collective improve in all possible areas. This combined with Arno 's attention to detail and Jochem's mixing skills should result in an album that'll raise some eyebrows!"
