H.L. The description "female fronted metal from the Netherlands" is usually an indicator for quality and so it is in case of AUTUMN. Compared to other famous bands like Within Temptation or Delain, AUTUMN play more progressive. Their sophisticated songs are not catchy from the first listening onwards but need their time to develop atmosphere and catch the listener. The advantage of the "sugar-free" style is, that the album does not become boring. Check "Stacked Smoke" or "Old Fuel". Favorite track: Stacked Smoke.

  • Autumn collaborated with obscure, Dutch underground artist RōNIN for a great deal of the album art accompanying ‘Stacking Smoke’. His work perfectly translates Autumn’s lyrics and concept to visible, almost sensible images. His unique technique of processing photographs with water and black ink creates scenes that are neither here, nor there. Neither now, nor ever. A match made. Period.

    There is a limited run of specials packages that contain both Autumn’s new album ‘Stacking Smoke’ and RōNIN’s art book 'No Man's Land' available.

Truly, madly, deeply Sadly dead and gone Canvas burning, spark a yearning Carry on I feel, yet I reach into thin air You heal to your heart’s content Searching deep within you for strength to continue through sinew and bone Never mind mending damaged nerve endings I’m accident prone I feel, yet I reach into thin air You heal to your heart’s content I have had a thousand days to wither, missed the point of no return I have made my changes for the bitter and watched your painted likeness burn It could not save me, nor you The passers-through no matter who might make it to the end It did not save you I stare at the limb as its precious skin becomes illusion These bones are at home and I’ll keep on cherishing them I feel, yet I reach into thin air You heal to your heart’s content

The art of seeing eye to eye The fog or war is on the rise again It’s strange I cannot recall calling in at all Losing line of sight Target: My pride, before the fall It skillfully eludes my crosshairs and the noose Hiding in plain sight, I miss, we fight and it is on again I’ll aim for your feelings On again and fire is returned Time’s run out in search of a weakness Adding old fuel to fire as we burn We move on It can’t be the end since time is out of sight and if it’s bend or break, we’ll make a break for it at first light It might sound right true that I’ll be true to you If it comes down to trust, we drop our gloves and it is on again And so it starts, the endgame, and it may come as no surprise that this will end in stalemate. In time preceding our demise And it is on again I’ll aim for your feelings On again and fire is returned Time’s run out in search of a weakness Adding old fuel to fire as we burn The art of seeing eye to eye The fog or war is on the rise again And so it starts, the endgame, and it may come as no surprise that this will end in stalemate. In time preceding our demise And it is on again I’ll aim for your feelings On again and fire is returned Time’s run out in search of a weakness Adding old fuel to fire as we burn

From this vantage point I might feel inclined to reminisce Instead, I witness myself politely declining, stacking mile upon mile of distance between us Stacking smoke, curtains for film noir Mirrors of sand, portraits charcoal and grime Figure us out once for all. Stacking smoke Figures of speech, free from harm, like blackbird figurines fall silent on our high-rise Stacking smoke Unbeknownst to all, turn to your partner in grime Unbefitting of smokestacks, we lit up the skyline and true to our word built a forest of smoke. And stone, hew me from you, a scarecrow statue to clothe these wayward bones Mirrors of sand, portraits charcoal and grime Figure us out once for all. Stacking smoke Figures of speech, free from harm, like blackbird figurines fall silent on our high-rise Stacking smoke And fall as we did, aware that we might have that night blotted out Blotted out of a wayward, weary memory of arson and a dream and an eerie echo will ricochet off a sole defiant chimney Mirrors of sand, portraits charcoal and grime Figure us out once for all. Stacking smoke Figures of speech, free from harm, like blackbird figurines fall silent on our high-rise Stacking smoke Mirrors of sand, portraits charcoal and grime Figure us out once for all. Stacking smoke Figures of speech, free from harm, like blackbird figurines strewn like pebbles from our high-rise Stacking smoke Burning through poorly mended picture frames and the last of my midnight oil An arsonist’s tale henceforth lost to all For the life of me, I dare not recall

Through blue wine A thousand days to wither Tricked by time, we never rest Promise me that we’ll escape together Thick as thieves in the dead of night Choose your battles wisely Pick a fight if all else fails Trust your instincts, strive to prevail This blackout is the break that we need And I will follow to whatever end Moving in stealthy silence Muted in our secrecy Lag behind and we might miss Our window of opportunity Dogs and floodlight We’ve been made Aware Stop right there! Hide now or make a run for your freedom Yeild? No. I’ll fight until the end And when it ends I want you gone Tried –not hard enough- to save your skin It’s way to much to hide within You sold your hide to force a truce I think It’s time to start anew

The two of us might agree to stay alive When blue acid skies turn green to blight, we might as well Someone like you might think about it A sacrifice too great to hold me, dear Cool down once per fume to a liquid state (worth its weight in gold) Blue and innocent, it meets the eye (but I won’t shed a tear) Stir it up enough to break the vial (pour it far and wide) Cold and blistering by design, she’ll show her true face Who’d share a dream so bleak? Millions of eyes slam shut for an instant dreamless sleep By ruse, dark drones revealed a cyanide sky, but why? Have my agents turned on me? If time would tell? Hell. They might as well. Scentless vapor trails, the bitter sweet (memory of it all) Breathe the Aerosol, blue and light When rogue components start taking life and my chemical agents quadruply a simple vial contains the beast inside She’ll show her true face Call off your vessels, dear Abort your fatal run on our hemispheres Stand down, surrender your arms to mine and in time, you’ll see our industries don’t need a helping hand Who’d share a dream so bleak? Millions of eyes slam shut for an instant dreamless sleep By ruse, dark drones revealed a cyanide sky, but why have my agents turned on me?

Find where the river ends Linger and make amends Wash it away in murky waters Wade in. Sinking. Lonely. You’re afraid and truly, madly, deeply Sadly gone If you value life, find where the river ends Linger and make amends Wash it away in murky waters Down by the river’s end we can stop pretending or simply wait till life blows over Wade in. Sinking. Lonely. You’re afraid and truly, madly, deeply Sadly gone If you value life, find where the river ends Linger and make amends Wash it away in murky waters Down by the river’s end we can stop pretending or simply wait till life blows over Show me a way to rise above this Sing me a song that fills the air Down and away into the water Sing me a song that fills the air

There can be no maybe for the strong nor for the weak Maybe perhaps has caused me to hesitate? No Friday No tomorrow No time left to borrow No Friday No tomorrow Your silence, my sorrow A queen of worries, my doubts and insecurities drawn like moths to flame, or so itseems They eat at my face as I fear them, the traces Time for a decision No No Friday, no tomorrow No time left to borrow No Friday, no tomorrow Your silence, my sorrow I set an ultimatum Out with the doubts or in with the flames Today, no, tomorrow I guess we’ll just wait and see Maybe Time for a decision No Friday, no tomorrow No time left to borrow No Friday, no tomorrow Your silence, my sorrow

Shadows to the north Something’s stirring Clouds amass over unsettling horizons A new breed of storm heralding a rainy season, raising questions, raising Cain So cold here, in the eye of the storm Fury upon me, frozen to the sea An entity taking shape, I’m falling prey to solemn waves Fury upon me, frozen to the sea I’ve tried to taken no notice, but it’s edging closer now Ever closer to awareness, seems just a rush of blood away So cold here, in the eye of the storm Fury upon me, frozen to the sea An entity taking shape, I’m falling prey to solemn waves Fury upon me, frozen to the sea\ So cold here, in the eye of the storm Fury upon me, frozen to the sea Hold on for dear life, our stronghold, for the storm in my eyes is growing cold

Shadow North, mark a path for me to steer clear of If peril had a shape, it would be yours Shaped only spite and strain so stake your claim You’ve forged confusion, you’ve fed me well Unnerving to leave port, venture out in gale force winds I look to stern and waver yet set final sail for the clouds that shake the old horizon Shadow North, chart a course for me, straight and narrow for searing tempests charge and lash out at my sight and howling currents tear at the marrow You’ve forged a broken blade, you’ve fed me well Unnerving to leave port, venture out in gale force winds I look to stern and waver yet set final sail for the clouds that shake the old horizon Spoils of lawless lands lie squandered, given to the sea Wasted enmity Given up the ghost that rendered me spineless, wilfully Wasted enmity Fury upon me, frozen to the sea Woe is me Unnerving to leave port, venture out in gale force winds I look to stern and waver yet set final sail for the clouds that shake the old horizon Unyielding, unwavering, headstrong in gale force winds I look to stern no more and find my white whale shaped in the clouds of my new horizon

Rush to paint the sea, paint a world with me Unveil the stars tonight and brush the clouds aside Oceans waxed and waned, still coursing through my veins Years have come to pass since I saw you last on stranger tides Gently blowing my way Shift to silence Storm of the I Thunderous crashing waves fall on deaf ears The turning of the tides is a rush of blood away and raising new questions Fury upon me Wasted Enmity Frozen to the sea

I ponder over parallel being Remnants of a man worth his salt, a shadow from the North Once I spent some thousand days out at sea with my love, hopelessly devoted to the tides To and fro, a dance of brittle bones, old as the skies I wonder how could I break on you now? I’d lived in al directions, unfazed through deception Shadow North, you’ve thrown me off course No stars for guidance in absence of light and I wonder why I couldn’t stop pretending by the riverside And the river ran dry Gently blowing my way (and the faultline shifting) Shift to silence Storm of the I Thunderous crashing waves (they rise and they fall) fall on deaf ears The turning of the tides is a rush of blood away (and edging ever closer) and raising new questions Fury upon me Wasted enmity (stand tall ‘till I’m frozen to the ~~~) Frozen to the ~~~ I’m falling prey to solemn waves Carry me away to unsettling horizons Hold on for dear life, for the storm in my eyes is growing cold Hold fast as I tear at the marrow Bite down as I tear into the fabric of life So cold in the eye of the storm So cold here in the storm of the I
