According to a statement on their Bandcamp page, Lithuania’s Autism made a conscious decision to explore “even more disturbing and uncomfortable topics” on their sophomore album Film Noir and, as a result, created an album rife with potent, melancholic atmosphere.
The band paints with shades of post-metal and post-rock, casually nodding to the progenitors and frontrunners of these respective genres while decidedly taking a much darker turn. Though void of vocals or lyrical narrative, the band explore the aforementioned topics and purvey such a dismal atmosphere through the use of moody instrumentation and textures, as well as harrowing audio samples culled from tragic events. The album is driven, as said best by the band themselves, by a “mood of pessimism and menace”, which is something rarely witnessed within the post-metal genre.
