All Fell Silent, Everything Went Quiet, the latest full-length from Dutch atmospheric black metal unit AN AUTUMN FOR CRIPPLED CHILDREN, is out now and streaming via their new label home of Prosthetic Records.
A ten-track chronology of the human condition that heaves under the weight of both distortion and emotion, All Fell Silent, Everything Went Quiet seamlessly defies all genre constraints as vivid melody provides a counterpoint to dismal soundscapes and harsh vocals. Embracing an insular approach to their output, the stunning offering was recorded, engineered, mixed, and mastered by the band. The cover art was also created by the trio, with all elements of the record shaped by their collective vision. The final package delivers an emotional gut punch of melancholic ruminations.

AN AUTUMN FOR CRIPPLED CHILDREN has been emitting their distinctive blend of abrasive black metal and melodic shoegaze from behind an opulent veil of synths and strings for over a decade. Although their original inspirations – black metal and ’90s doom/goth bands – can still be detected in new material, they’ve evolved to incorporate so much more.
Opting to remain anonymous, and with live performances yet to be realized, AN AUTUMN FOR CRIPPLED CHILDREN channels everything they want to communicate via their recorded output. Often incomprehensible, the lyrics still convey honest sentiments in a way that has resonated with fans since their first release. The universal nature of love, death, life, loss, pain, and misery is condensed into majestic instrumental passages and verbalized through a choir of multiple instruments, of which the human voice is just one.
