The Best Band in Connecticut is Autumn’s Eyes

Share:
Who will it be?

Back in August we asked you to help us find the best unsigned bands in America. After listening to hundreds of submissions, we’ve finally narrowed down our pick for the state that’s, uh, the southernmost state in New England? I don’t have anything creative for Connecticut. However, we figured out what the best unsigned band in the Nutmeg State (yes, that’s accurate) is: Autumn’s Eyes.

My musical diet as of late has consisted of gross, raw, nasty vitriol that shatters the knees of peasants and voids the bowels of plebs. I’ve been rabidly consuming the excrements of Yhdarl, wallowing in the muck of the new Thaw album, and writhing in the murk of Ævangelist’s Writhes in the Murk. As you can see, I have been quite trve this year, and Abbath is sure to leave me a vial of blasphemous pig’s blood under my Kvltsmas tree. So you can imagine my surprise when I came across Autumn’s Eyes and this happened: “Scoff. Das ist nicht krieg, NEXT. Well, after this song. Ok, that was kinda fun, maybe one more while I look for another band. Ha, this chorus is awesome. Definitely getting another band after this one, though. Ok, I might as well finish this album, and maybe a couple more. THIS IS AWESOME.”

Autumn’s Eyes is a one-man, horror-themed gothic rock/metal project by Daniel Mitchell, who happens to also run an awesome horror-themed blog. Type O Negative fans should kick back and relax pretty easily here, along with anyone who likes a slight industrial feel without being beaten about the head and neck with it. Mitchell’s strong, clear, mid-range baritone is highly infectious, locking listeners in with catchy lines that have a lot of fun but never feel insincere. The same goes for the instruments, and I found myself seriously digging the bass lines on more than one occasion. The lead guitar work in The Wooded Road, my favorite track from 2012’s Please Deceive Me, weaves beautifully with the tasteful keyboards, and the extended instrumental sections recall classic, Carpenter-esque horror themes. His whole discography is brimming with a catchiness that I don’t feel bad about buying into, along with an honesty that sells the whole package nicely.

Autumn’s Eyes was just the band we needed to add some variety to our hunt for the best unsigned band in the US. I know I’m not alone in my love for gritty, crusty metal that tests your listening limits, as evidenced by the writer’s picks for the first few states. However, it’s very rewarding to take time to appreciate the incredible diversity that our favorite genre offers. So don’t bang your head, but bob it convincingly along with Autumn’s Eyes, like him on Facebook, check out Daniel’s blog, and leave a comment or two!

Thoughts from some other judges:

W: Autumn’s Eyes are a fantastic example of how metal can still be intriguing without being extreme. With songcraft that seemingly draws from Type O Negative and Prong, this is enchanting traditional metal that fits the season perfectly.

Leif Bearikson: A band that features solid grooves, Halloween themes, catchy as all hell vocals and a song called Anxiety Spiders? I’ll take two, please.

MoshOff: Progressive, dark atmospheric metal that relies on gravely vocals to drive the point home. It’s refreshing to hear a band on the depressive side of things that doesn’t sound like a poorly recorded session of someone being tortured in a frostbitten forest. Also, the electronic elements make for a nice contrast.


The Toilet ov Hell is on an absurd quest to find the best unsigned band in each state of this glorious union. The purpose? To shine some the spotlight on bands that deserve more exposure. Also, we’re going to determine once and for all the greatest state in the nation. Each state winner is decided by a collection of 25 judges. After we’ve announced the winner of each state, we’re gonna throw them all in a winner-take-all bracket and leave the votes up to you. Who will be the best unsigned band in the United States? Which state is superior? We can’t wait to find out.

Previous winners:
Alabama — Phylum
Alaska — Terraform
Arizona – Take Over And Destroy
Arkansas – Torii
California – Destroy Judas
Colorado – The Sleer

  • This shit rules.

  • This sounds like an industrialized, Halloweenized version of He Is Legend or something. Pretty great stuff! I could definitely jam to this shit at a Halloween party or something.

    Edit: listened to more than the first song, there’s so much variety in this stuff, it’s crazy!

    • Stockhausen

      Right? I was legit caught off guard by how varied but instantly likable that whole album is.

  • Guacamole Jim

    Did I vote for these guys?? And if not, why the hell not??

    • YourLogicIsFlushed

      I didn’t either, they were a late addition, but I am glad enough people got a chance to vote for them! Way better than my original choice.

    • Shit got crazy unorganized at the last minute with this state. I didn’t hear or vote on anything for this state. I’m stoked with the winner tho. This is better than anything I had otherwise heard in the state.

  • All spiders are fucking Anxiety Spiders.

    • YourLogicIsFlushed

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        That’s just cruel. I was scrolling down the page and this caught my eye. I screamed and fell off my chair as I hate spiders. Great job.

    • Can confirm, fuck spiders.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            You kinda started this by implying that you enjoyed coitus with these ghastly creatures. I seriously don’t see how anyone could understand your words any other way.

          • I GUESS I WILL EAT LATER

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I’m sorry to have affected your appetite

          • Death

            You were the one that read it as an implication towards coitus, you sick fuck

          • Calm down you spiderfuckers.

          • Death

            WHAT? HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Fuck modern ages and consumption culture and such I guess

            WHere did you get the info?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            From an interview with Juha Kupiainen, the mastermind also known as S.M. NekroC

            What would be the most effective way of killing a lot of people without animals suffering from it? Just asking.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Matti Juhani Saari, except armed with a relatively easy to make nerve gas and a gas mask. And in the middle of a mall in rush hour I guess. That’d do off quite a few.

          • Death

            What if we pair him with Pekka-Eric Auvinen?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          • Death

            Have you ever thought that maybe, just maybe, we’re sick?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I have a doctor’s opinion on that, the answer is a definite yes

          • Death

            Could what we talked about be considered as a “Kyttä juttu?”

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            You mean that will they come knocking on our doors? They can probably tell that we were joking, even if it was a sick joke.

          • Death

          • Another Finn

            Oh hey, is there room for one more in this circle jerk?

          • Death

            I smell bullshit…

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Oh absolutely not, you’re just another finn, nothing supernatural ’bout you.
            (see @metaphysicalanus:disqus, now I’m a discriminator too.)

          • Death

            We’re just joking around, mate. I guess we Finns have a strange sense of humour.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I bet we’ll find the eye somewhere there

          • Stockhausen

            I BET THEY HAVE EYES.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            It’s true. Take me with you, oh masters of knowledge

            Nope. Just nope. This idea does not exist and it never will exist.

      • The Satan Ov Hell

        Lube up first of course, poor little fellas.

    • Death

      Only good spiders are the spiders from Mars.

      • There is no such thing as a good spider, blasphemer.

        • Death

          May David Bowie strike you down for this.

          • W.

            Come in, Major Tom.

          • Stockhausen

            Major Tom to Ground Control: “Space is awesome, no spiders at all.”

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            He hadn’t gotten to mars yet, but he learned.

            “We know Major Tom’s a junkie
            Strung out in heaven’s high
            Hitting an all-time low”

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          I hope The Thin White Duke throws darts at you and your lover’s eyes. You have been going from station to station but you have ended up at the end of your golden years.

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        Not without Ziggy they ain’t

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan

        So where were the spiders when the fly tried to break your balls?

    • NDN Ov Hell

      yup

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      On a less disturbed note, that Anxiety Spiders song was really awesome

    • Stockhausen

      These words are words about which I would say “These are true words.”

  • W.

    But seriously, this band is great, and I’m very glad we can add a little diversity to the bracket.

    • The solos are really doing it for me. A very tasteful level of widdly-widdly.

      • W.

        His vocals are totes seductive.

      • W.

        Also, guitar tone reminds me a bit of Jeff Loomis.

      • Stockhausen

        Deedles, weedlees, and meedles are all in their rightful place. None of ’em just sloppin’ all over the joint.

  • W.

    Another note: the discography is on Spotify!

  • M Shadows!

    DID YOU KNOW, IT TAKE APPROXIMATELY 20 THRUSTS TO GET TO THE CENTER OF A TOOTSIE ROLL POP?

  • Howard Dean

    Summer is definitely over. Samhain draws near, and the autumn is upon us in all of her light-smothering and Pumpkin Spice delight. One more spin of the dirty blackness and we’ll put it to bed for the winter.

    Until next summer…

          • Howard Dean

            What’s funny is that unless you live in the northernmost parts of the Scandinavian peninsula (and very few people do, of course, since it’s in the arctic circle), your Norwegian/Swedish/Finnish winters aren’t really that bad. Many places in the northern United States have more severe winters–colder temperatures, more snow, etc. The people that live in Northern New England, the Great Lakes region, the Upper Plains (Wyoming, Montana, Dakotas), and Alaska (of course) all have more severe winters than the majority of people living on the Scandinavian peninsula. Seriously. Compare the average lows and record low temperatures of Helsinki with those of Chicago (and Chicago isn’t nearly the coldest place in the contiguous U.S.).

          • Death

            Helsinki is not a part of Finland! I will never accept it!

          • Finland is not a part of this dimension, I will not accept it!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Neither do I!

          • Howard Dean

            Seriously. It’s true. You can compare Oslo, Bergen, Stockholm, Gothenburg, pretty much any random spot, what have you. You could even pick some random hamlet in northern Sweden with 5 Sami people living there, and there is place in Alaska or northern Canada with a couple Inuit families living there, and it is colder and snowier.

            I think there has always been a gross overestimation of how brutal the winters are on the Scandinavian peninsula, especially in the metal scene. Are they cold and snowy? Definitely. But worse than what over a hundred million people in the northern half of North America endure? Not really. And if we take into account the three majors of the northern hemisphere, Russia, Canada, and the U.S., it’s really not looking too bad on the peninsula.

          • Death

            jokeroonies

            Howard Dean

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            The winters at Alaska and such heights are really, really cold. But consider that Lapland is world’s northernmost inhabited area (not speaking of only finnish lapland, but lapland as a whole), It gets cold there. North Pole, or South Pole also don’t count. But you’re right Northern Europe gets overrated a lot concerning temperature. ( I’m a gonna be quite ashamed if some of these “facts” turn out to be wrong, but I’ll go with these for now.

            Also recent years have unfortunately been gentler by average than older winters.

            So yes, not perhaps the coldest place on earth, winters(specially south) get overestimated. But You’d do them wrong to underestimate them either. It’s a bit of a stalemate.

          • Howard Dean

            No, I totally understand how cold it is in Lapland. I think the point I was making is that in the areas of the peninsula that are actually inhabited (i.e. more than two dozen people live there), it’s not as bad (compared to the northern parts of the U.S., which are densely populated). Basically I was saying: yes, it is very cold in some parts of the Scandinavian peninsula, but people don’t even live there!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I got the point, just felt a need to say something.
            I’ll just say this too concerning population, Finland has less people than some of Us’ cities. Only about 5,5 million.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Which is to say that the few people of northernmost parts of the country compare better when looking only at Finland and it’s overall density of living.

          • Death

            May I ask, how dark are the winters there?

          • Howard Dean

            In Alaska and northern Canada, very dark. In the contiguous states, not as dark. (Proximity to the poles and all that jazz)

          • Death

            I believe that the “brutality” of our winters come from the amount of light in the winter. Usually it’s only a few hours of light a day.

          • Howard Dean

            Electricity > Winter

            (I jest; I totally don’t underestimate the effects of light deprivation)

          • Death

            Seasonal affective disorder is a problem here in the winters.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I know people who have “lost” it during winters because, no light

          • Death

            I “knew” a guy who committed a suicide because of it.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            It’s aptly called SAD

          • Howard Dean

            That’s awesome (that the acronym is so fitting, not the actual disorder)

          • Howard Dean

            I bet. If you had violent crime, it would probably skyrocket!

          • Death

            I knew a foreign couple that came here for the winter. They didn’t like it and had to suffer from SAD. It’s a shitty thing.

          • Howard Dean

            I can’t even imagine what the murder rate would look like if we had extremely limited daylight hours (< 6) for a good chunk of the winter. It would be like the winter equivalent of Florida summers (where everyone is so hot during the summer they just go mad and do bath salts and murder each other).

          • Death

            It’s nice. You go to work when it’s dark and you get out of work when it’s dark. The small time of light goes by while you’re working. I can believe that the murder rate would go up with that amount of sunlight,

          • Howard Dean

            Where I live, a lot of the month of December is actually like that. At work at 7:30am. Dark. Leaving work at 4:30pm. Dark. That’s a shitty month.

          • W.

            Yo HD, Lubbock is positioned in a special area of the South Plains where we get cold mountain air combining with hot coastal air that causes the greatest weather extremes in the country. We get massive dust storms, ice storms, tornadoes, hail, below zero colds and above 110 degree highs.

          • Howard Dean

            Dude, Dubya, I’ve always heard Lubbock is ridiculously volatile! I know northern Texas does get some snow in the winter, which is nuts in itself. And West Texas is straight desert, while East Texas is straight sauna. That’s a crazy state, for sure!

            I think the weather extremes in the United States are pretty hilarious. The country is massive, of course, so there are weather extremes related to geography, but the volatility of single areas–like Lubbock–is remarkable. In Vermont/New Hampshire, for example: Record low: -50 F; Record high: 106 F! It’s fucking insane! No wonder Americans are so crazy and violent!

          • Stockhausen

            Oklahoma doesn’t get as bad as Lubbock, but we get some crazy extremes as well. In summer of 2011, Oklahoma was right behind Texas in new US heat records. I think we had 60-something days of 100+ weather. Our winters don’t see a lot of sustained snowfall, but we get concentrated storms that drop a few inches of solid ice on everything. And then tornados that, you, eat stuff. I lived in California for a few years, and the weather was SO BORING. I love the extremes storms and stuff we get in OK.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Florida summers are either extremely hot or extremely rainy. I’ve been in Florida when it rained so hard that half my leg was underwater. I’ve also been in Florida when it’s over 100 degrees.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I usually am happier in the winter than I am in the summer for some odd reason. I don’t have SAD but I consider that weird that I am happier in the winter.

          • crazytaco_12

            My buddy used to live in Alaska and said they’d have a period where’d there’d be days of literally unending darkness

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I’ve seen such a winter as well. I don’t know how your compatriot reacted to it, but I think that was really something. And not necessarily in a good way

          • W.

            My brother lives in Alaska. The 30 days of night depends on where you are.

          • crazytaco_12

            Yeah, I’m not sure if my bud ever got the days of night experience, but I know he’s told me that he’s gotten days where the sun never sets, so I wouldn’t doubt it.

          • Paris Hilton

            In Canada we get like 5 hours of sunlight per day in January. Shit is unbelievably weak.

          • Death

            I used to live in northern finland and we had around 2-3 hours of light a day. Somehow I’ve grown to like the darkness

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I lived there too. I like darkness a lot, but I think it is overall way better if there are at least some moments of light included.

          • Death

            It’s better to have at least a few hours of light than none.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Definitely

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            New York in the winter either has no snow and is extremely sunny or is freezing and there is two feet of snow and extremely little light. I love when it’s dark out yet you can see the moon and the stars. I hate the darkness in the winter though.

            What happened to him, after prison, but before cancer? Did he continue or what?

          • Death

            I believe he did. The videos of him are so fucking hilarious.

          • Paris Hilton

            This dude would be as Recluse fan if we were alive for sure

          • Death

            It’s a shame that you don’t understand Finnish, because there are videos of him and his friends that are one of the funniest things I’ve seen. He’s so provocative in them.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I don’t think anyone could carry the joke that far without being for realzies. Would you be so kind as to bring me something nice from the D as well, sugar?

          • Paris Hilton

            Sure! Would you like something that’ll make you “make conspiracy YouTube videos crazy” or “passed out naked on a fire hydrant at 2:00 PM on a Wednesday crazy”?

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Call me a nutbag or nutmeg I don’t care, I’ll have a double dose of whatever made him do the R train. That has to be the shit

          • Paris Hilton

            Take 3 doses of peyote and call me in the morning!

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Done Deal, sugar

            Helsinki winters aren’t cold, only depressive. No snow so it’s pitch black throughout the day sometimes. Drives people mental. North Funland winters are the only real winters. North Funland=Trve Fvnland

          • This. The whole city shut down last year on several days because it was -30 below zero. On the bright side you get a good workout from shoveling.

          • Death

            Absolutely no one in the history of this world has claimed that Helsinki winters are cold.

          • Tyree

            There were more cancellations here due to cold weather than snow last year. It was cold as a mothafuck here!

          • Ikr. I don’t think I have ever seen that many cancellations, let alone for the temperature. It was like, you go outside too long, and you die.

          • Tyree

            I think it got below -30 here one day. It was insano!

          • Bob Saget

            I landed at O’Hare the day before. It was -18 with a windchill of -40 in Waukegan.

            Can confirm: Chicago winters are brutal and I never want to experience it again.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Look at New York, preferably the Buffalo area. The winters there are just inhuman. Those winters are the reason no one wants to live in Buffalo. Hell, even where I live gets close to zero degrees very often in the winter and I live near the city.

      Fuck yeah dude, I love the fall (though it can be the bane of my existence since I work outside and I live in the PNW). It’s been way too nice here the last week though, a trend that needs to change (though I can do without the rain, just give me overcast)! Been hitting up all my goth and horror metal bands https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDmmMbHWr0I

  • IronLawnmower

    TFW most of the music from TOH is 2 brutal 4 me. This band though. I can diggem.

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    This is pretty good. I dig it.

  • Xan

    This is my kind of music!

  • Paris Hilton

    The brisk, sunny day of October was slowly sinking into a chilled darkness from dusk as Varg Vikernes lied on his prison bed. The rest of the world was seemingly light years away, its silence only matched by its distance. His world felt more chaotic than Grand Central Station. He knew that could not control his new feelings for Alejandro; but he could not help but feel betrayal of himself, his race, and his former lover. Tears rolled down his malnourished face. The moisture reluctanly rolled slowly down his dry skin not unlike volcanic ash and onto his jumpsuit. He closed his eyes, took a deep breath of cold autumn air and thought of the last time he saw his former lover.

    “Did anyone follow you?”

    “No. I presume you were not followed, as well?”

    Varg twitched and concentrated hard on that moment. From his cell it all seemed so long ago. He thought of that Motel 6 room. Room 237. A faint smile crept on his face as he remembered the feeling of true surrender, intimacy, and bliss. He remembered the way Vik Kuletski’s wiskers felt against the small of his back. He remembered the smell of Pabst Blue Ribbon, Colt Cigars, and the feeling of their souls becoming one as their tongues passionetly wrestled on that fateful May night.

    “That was amazing, Vik.”

    “We need to keep this a secret, Varg. The rest of the world cannot know our love. They would hate us. They would not understand. This room is the only place we can really be ourselves. I love you.”

    “I love you too.”

    When Varg said those 3 immortal words to Vik Kuletski that was the last time he said it to a human being. The memory of saying those 3 immortal words to Vik was the only time he could think of in his life where he was being completely honest and straight-from-the-heart. It reminded him that he his not just a number in a cage, but a man. A man capable of giving love and receiving heartbreaks. He had not even brought himself to say those words to Alejendro yet. Perhaps he was not ready for the same kind of hurt that he felt when the French authorities dragged him away from Vik. Perhaps he had a feeling Alejandro already knew.

      You need professional help my friend, but lord knows I’m not gonna be the one to give it to you.

  • crazytaco_12

    The only one man horror metal project I need (warning: insane lolbuttz ahead) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Zp9mmK5iIY

  • NefariousDude

    AWESOME. I’ve been trying to find more bands like vaura(in feel and atmosphere that is). Nice pick gents.

  • Wizard Aura

    Sorry dudes, but this kind of blows. I mean, c’mon, dude fully thinks combining “heavy metal, classic rock, classical and unique sound effects” is “cutting edge” and not something that like every single metal band of the 90s tried and eventually stopped doing because it was a terrible idea.

    • The Satan Ov Hell

      CANT STOP THE ROCK

    • crazytaco_12

      I get what you’re saying. I love Type O and gothic metal and shit, but this didn’t totally do it for me, but I think I’m going to have to listen more before coming to a final judgment cuz I don’t doubt I could get into it. Also, sidenote, no honorable mentions for Connecticut?

      • W.

        It was a pretty weak offering, but we dug This White Mountain.

        • crazytaco_12

          I’ll have to check ‘er

      • Wizard Aura

        I mean, I totally judged it off, like, a song, but I couldn’t get past the style! It just sounds so dated to me in this day and age.

        Yeah, whats up with the no honorables? In that spirit, here is Kath Bloom, she’s from Conneticut…

        • crazytaco_12

          Hmm, obviously not metal, but weird

  • Bob Saget

    This is officially my “drink Pumpkin Spice Lattes and perform a séance” soundtrack.

  • crazytaco_12

    With the judges who have reviewed this band, what album sound the best so far? I might cave and snag one because I’m a sucker for good Halloween music. Might just snag the cheapest he has for less risk factor, but I’m all ears if anybody wants to make the case for one of his albums.

    • Looks like they’re all on Spotify if you wanna try before you buy.

      • crazytaco_12

        Don’t have Spotify or even a smartphone for that matter

        • W.

          I listened to Please Deceive Me earlier and enjoyed it.

  • crazytaco_12
