The Brvtalist is pleased to present the latest release by Derry-based outfit Autumns. Christian Donaghy's post-industrial project has found a new home with one of our favorite labels, Clan Destine Records. After successful releases on Downwards and CF Records, Autumns has returned with a limited cassette release that finds the project diving even deeper into blackened, electronic soundscapes. While drawing influences from early industrial pioneers and modern experimental electronics, "Das Nichts" is a powerful release that seamlessly blends an impressive array of both genres and moods.
The centerpiece of the release is no doubt the 19-minutes long "Motel Lover". The track is a twisted journey with a haunting, brvtal narrative. "Fed By Dominance" sees a more traditional techno-inspired beat, layered with loud, punishing industrial influences. We also enjoyed the blackened, distorted vocals and guitar feedback that works nicely alongside analog beats and driving kick drums throughout the release. The video for "Fed by Dominance" is the perfect visual accompaniment - filled with images of fetish, bondage, violence and harsh cityscapes.
