Autumn Leaves - As Night Conquers Day

Autumn Leaves returns with their second full-length release, entitled “As Night Conquers Day”. After reading other reviews for this album their first release “Embraced by the Absolute”, it seems as if a lot of the reviewers are listening to this music with expectations of a brutal death metal band. Quite the contrary, despite some heavy breakdowns, Autumn Leaves plays a much more melodic style of music. “As Night Conquers Day” is an interesting mix of melody and doom/death. Vocally, lows are predominant with highs sneaking through from time to time. The guitars are thick and melodically flowing. The drumming is a little bit rock-n-roll-ish at times, perhaps similar to some of the Swedish Melodic Black/Death drums such as Sacrilege and Sacramentum, but also boasts a good bit of double bass and an occasional blast (maybe a few times throughout). Overall, this release is brilliant and very melancholic. Although not quite as aggressive as “Embraced by the Absolute”, “As Night Conquers Day” is still in a very similar vein.
