If you’re like me — and Satan help you if you are — you’ve likely spent an inordinate amount of time wondering what second wave black metal infused with a healthy does of Pornography-era Cure might sound like. Well, we’re both in luck because clearly An Autumn for Crippled Children have not only pondered that same idea, but moved forwarded and produced an album, All Fell Silent, Everything Went Quiet, that has successfully integrated both seemingly disparate sounds. You won’t able to experience the full shebang until tomorrow, May 1, when the record is unveiled via Prosthetic, but we’ve got new track, “None More Pale” for you right now.
“The song is about grey days, pale beauty and the death of someone close to you,” the band collectively tells Decibel. Don’t wait one hundred years, check it out below.
