This is the third release by Autumn Tears and the first to not be part of the Love Poems for Dying Children saga. The liner notes that accompany this say that this is a prologue to their next album (which, incidentally, is part of the Love Poems… saga) which should be out sometime in the near future. For those who have never heard Autumn Tears, imagine a band much in the vein of Dead Can Dance or Cold Meat’s Arcana. The music itself is on the Darkwave side with gothic keyboards and operatic female vocals with occasional male accompaniment. There are only three songs on this, which was kind of a disappointment as I paid $12 for this EP, but the good news is that all three of them are great. They all capture a mournful atmosphere and somber feelings, the way good dark music should. For fans of dark atmospheric music and Gothic, this is well worth the money. The only thing that I could find wrong with it was the fact that it was so short. Just when I was getting into it, it was over!
