Company: Aesthetic Death
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Ambient black metal can either be really good or really tiresome, depending on the song structures and the length of the tracks. Mekigah's 'Autexousious' is one that rides that line pretty tightly. Most of the tracks are a bit too lengthy at times, with a few coming in at 7 minutes or longer. The black metal vocals that intersperse things throughout are pretty depressive and the music is a mix of ambient and black metal riffing with a tiny bit of doom thrown in for good measure. The length of some of the songs hurts the songs at times but the ones that aren't overtly long really pack a solid metal punch to them.
