An Autumn for Crippled Children - Only the Ocean Knows (2012)

Emotional and atmospheric post-black metal/shoegaze with banshee vocals, hypnotic drumming, sharp guitar riffs and some really cool synth work - An Autumn for Crippled Children have hit me right in the feels with this album. It's pretty much perfect and warrants thousands of repeated listens. 39 minutes of harsh sounds and pure bliss which will guide you through an amazing journey. I suppose it's somewhat similar to Austere, just with shorter songs and slightly dirtier vocals. Hipster black metal? For sure, but it sounds great and I have no trouble recommending this to everyone interested in this sort of music.
