AUTOKRATOR (Album review)
This duo, Autokrator play a depressively, mentally destructive style of cold, apocalyptic death metal, with hints of Winter and Disembowelment.
Their music is so damn downtuned, you’ll feel as the earth beneath you is opening up getting ready to swallow you up alive. This is the sinister and helpless feeling which their songs invoke, and and you feel as it is the end of the world. Autokrator is very destructive in their use of the guitars and drum programming. The drum machine sound is okay, and feel having a real live sit in drummer would add a solid depth of perspective to their unrelenting auditory brutality.
The atmosphere of total dread and helplessness created here is of such magnitude, you’re prone to become a manic depressive just by listening to it several times. With each listen, the darkness within our world’s demise just increases ten fold, and shows brilliant Autokrator is at getting out their word of doom and gloom.
Autokrator’s ungodly and self-destructive brand of apocalyptic death metal is not for the faint at heart, as this music will leave you plotting your own bloody death.
Listen to this band at your own discretion, and die a violent death at the hands of total downtuned, sonic warfare. Third Eye Temple Sarjoo Devani
