Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, ‘From Autumn to Oceans’ create heavy, brooding post metal soaked in a nostalgic air of early 90’s alt rock/grunge sentiment. Their new EP; ‘The Flood/ The Fall’ (each track on the EP named accordingly) grabs your attention straight away with ‘The Flood’, nine minutes of loud shoegaze rhythms and distortion, evoking My Bloody Valentine and Isis simultaneously which no doubt will turn heads from fans of both.
Lastly ‘The Fall’ ups the ante by introducing speedier drums and louder riffs but still in keeping with the melancholic atmosphere of the previous track, ensuring that the two tracks do not seem disjointed.
Shamefully too short even for an EP, ‘The Flood/ The Fall’ has left me like a jonesing heroin fiend. Two tracks and I’m hooked; desperate for more, luckily Silber will oblige me with an upcoming new studio album ‘Oath of Eternals’.
