Recording New Album

We have started recording a new album which will be our first new album in over 7 years. 

The album is a natural evolution from our Cold, Black & Everlasting album from 2013.  We have continued to explore the natural, organic feeling of acoustic arrangements, blended with the raw darkness of heavier arrangements. 

We will reveal more information about the ablum in the days to come.  

We’d like to thank everyone for the patience and support over the last several years. It’s been a long, difficult road, but we find ourselves ready to make music once again.

Estatic Fear Tribute

The wait continues for the release of the Estatic Fear tribute album. The release has seen some unfortunate delays but is still clinging to life thanks to a dedicated few.

Plans are being made for digital, CD and vinyl formats, though this all needs to officially be confirmed.

We are looking forward to this release and sharing our version of Chapter II with all of you.

 History

As Autumn Calls is a death/doom metal band from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. The band was formed in 2005 by Andrew Ilves and James Hawkins. The band name As Autumn Calls was taken from the Estatic Fear song found on the “’Somnium Obmutum” album. Between 2005 and 2008 the duo wrote and recorded “An Autumn Departure”  but the desicion was made to put the album on hold and focus on new material.

In December 2009 Andrew and James released a three song EP titled “Emotionless”.  The release of  “Emotionless” slowly gained the band some attention in the underground doom metal scene and in 2010 the band signed with German label Naturmacht Productions.  Darren Favot joined the band as a full time drummer and the guys began work on re-recording the unreleased “An Autumn Departure” album.  The updated version of “An Autumn Departure” was released in May 2011 by Naturmacht Productions with a cassette version released by The Northern Cold Productions.

Brendan Peacock joined the band as a second guitarist in 2011 and for the first time As Autumn Calls featured a full line-up. With this new line-up in place the guys began work on their second full length release “Cold, Black & Everlasting”. The album is an expansion on the theme and concepts of 2009’s “Emotionless” EP. As with the EP the songs on “Cold, Black & Everlasting” flow together musically and lyrically to tell a story of the constant, internal struggle to find peace and contentment in life. “Cold, Black & Everlasting” was released in October 2013 through Naturmacht Production’s newly formed doom metal sub label Rain Without End Records.

In October 2017 the band released “Resignation” through Russian label Frozen Light. Resignation is a rework of the “Emotionless EP” featuring two previously unreleased songs. After the release, Darren Favot left the band for personal reasons and was briefly replaced by long-term friend of the band, Pat Fletcher. Pat recorded drums for the cover of Estatic Fear’s Chapter II but has since left the band. As Autumn Calls is currently working on a new full length album and aiming for a 2021 release.
