THE AUTUMN OFFERING READY THEIR REQUIEM
So here’s a good story for you: way back in October of ’07, when MetalSucks wasn’t even a year old yet, I wrote a pretty miserable review (to put it mildly) for The Autumn Offering’s Fear Will Cast No Shadow. Cut ahead to last month, and The Autumn Offering vocalist Matt McChesney actually e-mails me to say he likes our site and he’s bummed about the negative review. And then we had a completely calm, casual, and intelligent exchange about said review. So even if you hate The Autumn Offering, you gotta give McChesney props for being so chill about the whole thing. We’ve certainly encountered bands that did not look upon us so favorably after we said terrible things about them.
Now The Autumn Offering have a new album coming out on June 9, Requiem. McChesney has let me hear one song off of it, and I gotta say, it is a huge step in the right direction. Will the whole album be good? I honestly don’t know. But I’m certainly gonna give this band another chance.
Here’s a teaser for Requiem… we’ll have a full interview with McChesney – and another nice surprise from the band – a little later this week.
