... Autonomy ...
|They have influences like Spineshank, Limp Bizkit, Deftones and Incubus, but this is a band that definitely have their own sound. Autonomy are a 5-piece that hail from Daventry in Northamptonshire and were formed in 1998 with the intention of shaking-up the sleepy local scene. Objective achieved, in fact they have done such a good job of making an impact that they soon landed themselves a deal with Earache Records and we look forward to an debut album release in spring/summer of 2001.|
The band consists of:
Jay Spencer (vocals)
|Terry Muller, an
originating member and vocalist left at the end of 2000 to focus on other things, and I
have yet to experience Oliver's contributions.
Back on the recording front, they currently have two demo's available:
|Autonomy Demo (1) (March 1999) with tracks - Zany, But I Thought..., Asphyxia, Dummy and Impotence.
S/K/N/S Demo (2) (Oct 1999) with tracks - S/K/N/S, A Feeling Undescribable and But I Thought... (both CD's available through their website).

extremely impressed with the "S/K/N/S" demo CD and you can read my

Their sound is essentially a rapcore-metal mix with heavy groove beats that interact with (at times very) fast-paced vocal raps. "S/K/N/S" is considered to be one of their defining moments and features a greater depth of vocal styles and some very heavy, awesome riffing. It's a good song that definitely leaves you wanting to hear more.
Autonomy are also a band that loves to play live, they have a constant schedule of dates booked and have played along side the likes of Medulla Nocte, Vacant Stare, Miocene, Underule and Raging Speedhorn. So, a band worth checking out? Definitely Yes. I managed to catch them live a while back and reviewed that gig at the The Dun Cow, Daventry which was a cracker.
