Autumn's Grey Solace returns with Eifelian, their sixth full length album. Eifelian is a collection of fourteen luscious darkwave compositions built on swelling emotional moods ranging from beautifully tranquil to darkly morose. Erin's richly layered vocals deliver a hypnotic effect, taking the listener's mind to otherworldly places. Scott's dense churning guitars create a wall of sound, completely enveloping the listener in lush ambience. Together, they create a spinning sonic world of escapism.
Eifelian tells the tale of early Earth. Vast wilderness, lonely yet peaceful, a serene planet. Seven-string minor guitar chords, the low-end growl of a 5-string bass, ambient mandolin, and other more exotic sounds are heard throughout the album. Of course, there is a liberal dose of shoegaze staples: heavily processed electric guitars, drums immersed in reverb, and atmospheric vocals. Eifelian lies on the darker side of the Autumn's Grey Solace sound with an ample amount of melancholy tones.
