Autumn Tears are a band from Billerica, Massachusetts that plays a mixture of neo-classical, cinematic score and world music and this is a review of their self released 2019 album "Colors Hidden Within The Gray".
A cinematic orientated intro starts off the album while also introducing stringed and ethnic sounding instruments onto the recording. On the second track operatic female vocals are also introduced onto the recording as well as mixing in elements of classical music and the first 3 songs have a concept to them.
Tragic sounding keyboards can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the music also gets very symphonic at times. Elements of world music can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with the female vocals also adding in a touch of goth.All of the songs also sound very different from each other which also gives the music more diversity.
As the album progresses some of the tracks also start getting more long and epic in length. Later songs also introducing percussion onto the recording as well as the cinematic elements making the music sound more epic and one song also adds a small amount of classical guitars onto the recording, a later track is also all instrumental. The production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Autumn Tears are a very great sounding mixture of neo-classical, cinematic score and world music and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Day Of Wrath" "Rainlight Ascension" "The Earth Song" and "Another Day". 8/5 out of 10.
