An Autumn for Crippled Children - Try Not To Destroy Everything You Love (Aeternitas Tenebrarum Musicae Fundamentum, 2013)

I'm currently digging this band from The Netherlands. Yes, their name is too long (it's taken from a song title by the 90's UK black metal band Ebonylake) . Yes, it's dramatic, and so is the album title. Yes, I love it anyway.

Essentially, its shoegazey black metal / black gaze / whatever stupid name people end up giving especially atmospheric metal. Most of you hatefully refer to it as hipster metal but, hey, don't forget that some folks still refer to your precious WIITR with the same animosity.

Regardless, this is beautiful and blissful darkness. Enjoy.
