Being Dead Is A Place
Review by JD on May 6, 2011.
Finland is the explosive point for everything Death Metal - and for good reason. Some of the best and nastiest of the Death Metal movement have come from Finland lately. From those frozen shores, come a band that is looking to grasp the brass ring as the top Death Metal band in the world... Autere!
Autere is a quartet of very competent musicians that come together to play some very impressive and savage Melodic Death Metal. With sweeping guitar lines and a bass sound that can cause seismic activity around the world, this Finnish band attacks every one of your senses on all levels - and seems to be wanting to worm their way into your very psyche.
From the barbarous pounding of 'Suppressed To Slumber' that just seem to have this noticeable savage streak to it, to the simply nasty and explosive 'Contorted Leftover', on thing is very evident. This band is as precise as a surgeon’s scalpel and as vicious as a pack of wild wolves. With some of the best musicianship I have heard in awhile, talent fortified with tempestuous and imaginative yet haunting lyrics it is clear just how good Autere is.
It is sad that this amazing band, has only put out demos and three EP’s because this band screams out to have a full album under their belts. As good as this band is, it completely baffles me that labels like Nuclear Blast and Metal Blade have not picked them up and made them get a full album out there. My advice to the powers that be... sign them!! I think I am clear here!
