The Frozen Autumn / Press

“To listen to The Frozen Autumn is to be drawn into another mysterious world that is constantly enveloped either by an impenetrable mist or an eternal winter & yet which isn’t without its own cold melancholic beauty. The music of long time TFA stalwarts Diego Merletto & Froxeanne, who are joined here by new member The Count, has always been this cold, darkly melancholic entity &, even if they stick very closely to their own mix of 80s gothic moods & dark wave sounds on this latest release then that matters not at all as the magic shows no signs of waning. Indeed, if anything, they’re just getting better & better all the time as this is easily as good as anything they’ve released in the past & could well be their finest release yet with virtually every track proving its worth, starting with the superb opener ‘Before The Storm’ as massed melodic layers create a quite compelling sonic tapestry with each new element taking the track up to new emotive heights in a quite masterful m”

"While still cold and distinctly darkwave, Chirality strikes out with clearer and more plainly expressed tracks than the band’s ever attempted, and thankfully the material at hand measures up to the increased scrutiny: the songs here are hooky, to the point, and excellent.[...] Stylistically,after making some entreaties towards a more uptempo,modern synthpop template on their last LP, 2005′s Is Anybody There?, the band has shifted gears again, boldly inviting comparisons to some of the larger names from earlier in the genre’s history. [...] Chirality is still unabashedly darkwave, though, and genre aficionados will find plenty to love. [...]I can’t see any long-term die-hards (let alone more casual fans like myself) having trouble slipping into it.Moreover, if you’re a North American fan of darkwave who’s been lamenting the dearth of quality releases of late you can’t go wrong here. Buy it."

“The Frozen Autumn, "Rallentears" ltd. ed. 10" vinyl. I Frozen Autumn, una delle poche vere leggende partorite dalla darkwave italiana degli anni '90 [...] Un lavoro come "Rallentears" meriterebbe [...] 20000 copie vendute perché rappresenta la vittoria di un sound e di una vittoria artistica ormai rimasti doni di pochi. [...] Tutte le 4 canzoni imprigionate sul vinile sono l'esempio di un gruppo che non ha mai smesso di ricercare, sperimentare e "sentire" la musica come un'emozione, senza peró dimenticare il proprio passato. [...] Ottima l'apertura "Rallentears", deliziosa la nuova favola darkwave di "So Brave", inaspettato e incredibilmente emozionante il remake di "Wait For Nothing" reinterpretato da Froxeanne. Se pochi sono i dischi se si possono comprare di questi tempi, beh, questa è un'occasione da non perdere ma riservata a sole 250 persone.”
