NEWS: Autism reborn Aortes & premier “Crown Of Nails”!
After seven years together, line up changes have seen Lithuanian atmospheric post-metal band Autism close the chapter on their band name and rebrand as Aortes continue on the left hand path. Long time guitarist Karolis has exited stage left while the band have gone from being an instrumental one to having a vocalist in Red Water man Andrius, who had previously appeared as a guest on 2020 single “Immersion“. The new band have shared a pro-shot video from a recent live performance as their first single together in “Crown of Nails” which was filmed and edited by NoBrake. The sound was recorded by Rimtautas Piskarskas and mixed in Vicarious Recordings.
Founding member Tomas comments: “Recently we have been through a lot of shifts in the band that lead to the decision to close the AUTISM chapter and restart as AORTES. Our first output is a live video of our new song “Crown of Nails”, which we performed during the Mercury Booking Showcase event this October. The song itself deals with almost-religious ecstasy that is found in self-flagellation and inner struggles of a religious fanatic losing his godly calling. This “live-single” is a representation of the new sonic direction we started exploring and we are getting ready to surprise you even more in the near future”
