1) Autumn are a six-piece atmospheric rock band from Holland.
Autumn formed in 1995 and quickly became an important component of the blossoming Dutch gothic rock scene. Their debut album “When Lust Evokes The Curse” (2002) put Autumn on the map besides genre mates Within Temptation and After Forever. The band performed at festivals like Dynamo, Lowlands, Waldrock, Fields Of Rock, Metal Female Voices Fest, Summerbreeze, M’Era Luna and Wacken. In addition, Autumn supported bands like Cradle Of Filth and Within Temptation on national and international tours, and did numerous headline tours in The Netherlands. Their second album “Summer’s End” (2004), demonstrated a more mature Autumn that - slowly but surely - managed to escape the confines of gothic rock.
With “My New Time” (2007) Autumn doesn’t renounce its past, but does travel a new course with a strong mentality and ditto sound. With a huge dose of confidence, high quality songs and a superior line-up, a bright future lies ahead of them.
Winter 2009 heralds the return of Dutch heavy rock collective with a new intense and diverse album: Altitude. In many ways, this album is a logical progression from 2007’s highly acclaimed album, My New Time. It does present one surprising change: one of voice. Rising star, Marjan Welman, has taken over vocal duties from Nienke de Jong.
My New Time was a bold statement: “Through all adversity, here we are and we’re here to stay.” Let us not forget Autumn had already faced more setbacks than most bands would have been able to endure. It had not strayed them from their course. However, fate had one more trick up its sleeve. Early 2008, vocalist and front woman extraordinaire, Nienke, decided to part ways with Autumn, leaving the band faced with their most difficult decision yet. Against all odds, the five remaining band members decided that this could not possibly spell the end of their musical endeavor and since the main body of composers and lyricists remained, the search was on for a new vocalist. Guitarist Jens comments: “It was clear that we wouldn’t set out to find a second Nienke. There would be no one worthy of taking her place if that were our aim. Instead, we looked for someone whose voice, as well as personality, would gel perfectly with the Autumn that had risen with ‘My New Time’.”
As soon as she entered the spotlight, Marjan Welman turned out to be that ideal vocalist. Marjan, had made quite the name for herself in Holland and abroad with her enchanting appearance on Ayreon’s 01011001 album. She was more than happy to audition and the chemistry between the six musicians was instant and undeniable. With the writing process for the new album well underway by the time she joined, Marjan immediately started playing an active role in pre-production, rapidly taking to the material and bringing her unique warm voice to the songs, giving Autumn’s sound a slightly different twist, while preserving its identity. Creating the new record proved very exciting and surprising, as each step of the way uncovered just how well Marjan’s voice and emotional translation of the lyrics fit the songs. Jens elaborates, “Astonishing, how certain songs that hadn’t really got that certain spark to them in the past, all of a sudden just burst into life when Marjan recorded some vocals for a quick demo! We feel this incarnation of Autumn has all the potential to realize all we want to encompass as a band. Altitude is testament to this and with the solid team we have built up around us, we feel we’ve got the means to back it up!”
Autumn worked with the exact same team that was responsible for My New Time, which allowed the musicians to focus their energy solely on the creative process of composing Altitude. Guitarist Mats comments: “The certainty that we would end up with an extremely powerful sound meant that we could focus entirely on writing an album worthy of such a production.” This also led to a deeper involvement in the production process. Pre-production as well as a large chunk of the final recordings for Altitude were recorded at the band’s home studios. This method allowed the individual band members to be much more instrumental in molding, shaping and reshaping Altitude up to the very last stage. Fine tuning was once again in the skilled hands of Arno Krabman at Graveland studios. Jochem Jacobs added the finishing mixing and mastering touches at Split Second Sound.
As for the result; from the heavy grooving opening track Paradise Nox (with a remarkably sparkling vocal performance by Marjan) to the last dying note of title track, Altitude is an emotional rollercoaster ride. This album offers a diverse array of music that transcends the boundaries of many heavy rock related genres. Short, compact, straightforward songs coexist with intricate, multi-layered songs that take their time to draw to a close. It makes for an album that is not so much a series of individual songs, but much more a kind of organic entity; music and lyrics challenging six gifted song writers in coming up with material to bring out the best in each other, whichever shape or form it might take. Jens discusses the writing mindset for this album; “We set out to write music that captures our hearts or imagination, not necessarily songs that fit a typical format. We pretty much work as a democracy, so from the 40 odd tracks we started out with, the selections that made the cut is as thoroughbred an Autumn album as can be.”
The deliberate approach Autumn took to writing music and lyrics has a deeper motivation. Mats states: “We’re pretty much an album band, having grown up in times when buying an album meant embarking on a musical journey, a thrilling adventure. Nowadays, you often end up with a collection of songs, some killers, some fillers. For us, every note on this album has a purpose. Every second counts, so to speak.” The band describe it as a yearning to return to past eras of epic albums. Autumn’s Altitude may prove to fit neatly into that category. And this collective has only just begun its musical journeys…

2) As said in www.doom-metal.com bandlist, russian doom band Autumn is "Atmospheric Death/Doom in the vein of early Anathema, but different. The vocals sound somewhat like those of Moonspell and the band also uses a viola (not to be mistaken with a violin). The band's music shifts between more mid-tempo and slower songs. Overall the music breathes a very warm and sad romantic atmosphere. On their later albums the lyrics are in Russian. Melancholic Death/Doom that will appeal to the more romantic Doomsters."
Russian Autumn started in in 1993. First demo 'The Druid Autumn' was released in 1995. The next was first full album And We Are the Fallen Leaves (1997). At this time all lirics was on english. In 2000 band self-released Chernye Krylia ('Black Wings' in russian). All lyrics except one song on this album was on native lanquage. Last album Osen Vechna ('Autumn is eternal' in russian) was released in 2003 by Stygian Crypt Productions and all lyrics was russian at this time. After that group was disbanded.
In next years Stygian Crypt Productions re-released all Autumn albums.

Prior to becoming Autumn, they were named forethought who also released a 7". Without question they were early pioneers of what's known today as 'screamo' due to the vocaling style.

11) The primarily two-piece outfit released countless underground cassette tapes documenting their pioneering and experimental synth work for five years throughout the early 1980s, many of which have only seen the light of day due to recent CD-r releases via collective label Micrart. Just before retiring the name to persue other projects, Autumn would record their own soundtrack to Fritz Lang's silent classic Metropolis, which was occasionally performed alongside screening's of the film before an 'official' score was made available.
As Autumn changed directions and laid their moniker to rest, members Geert Coppens and Peter Bonne would find some more success as members of Twilight Ritual, while Peter would also work as Linear Movement a short period of time.
