Product Description

Autonomy - Autonomy

Amazon.co.uk

Formed in Daventry in 1998, Autonomy's local peers include such nu-Brit-rockers as Raging Speedhorn and Defenestration. And this, their debut album, was produced by Dave Dominguez, engineer of Papa Roach's Infest and Staind's Break The Cycle. So you'd expect their sound to be absolutely contemporary--and it is. Guitarist Matt Cosentino constantly switches from doomy Sabbath riffs to a frantic speed-metal rush, driven on by Richard Bradley's punishing percussion. What sets the band apart is their vocal arrangements. While in the studio, they replaced co-vocalist Olly Eldershaw with Los Angeles native "Soup" Carpenter, but kept much of what was already recorded. Consequently, we now hear Eldershaw's terrifying shrieks and grunts, Carpenter's ordinarily sweet and soft melodies, and the harsh raps of Jay Spencer, often all at once. The results, as with the excellent "Help You", "A Feeling Undescribable" and "This Is Real", can be both fascinating and happily disorientating, particularly when the musical backing rises above mundane metal. Unfortunately, this doesn't happen enough, though the churning riff of "S/K/N/S" recalls Rage Against The Machine, "Donkey Punch" possesses some truly piercing guitar and "When Things Go Wrong" hints at the histrionic strangeness of Pixies. It's an inconsistent album, but so timely it may shift millions nonetheless. --Dominic Wills

Imagine a heaving, pounding cauldron of rock metal, throw in some well placed rap, pour in gut wrenching screams, growls and attitude and then sprinkle the secret ingredient of a melodic undercurrent in just the right amount and you have Autonomy, their self titled debut album.
Its not often to find a new young band who are prepared to try something different but the Earache label have unearthed a bunch of young lads who have done just that. They refer to them in their blurb affectionately as a 'wrecking crew' and a couple of listens to this album will tell you why - I defy anyone to listen to this and not begin to want to get stuck into some serious moshing or head banging.
There's a real variety of influences going on in here. Listen hard enough and you can hear elements of Deftones, Limp Bizkit and Korn wrapped up with some Foos, Stained, Faith no More and even Beatle type melodies - no kidding, and anyone who can make that lot gel must have something worth listening to. There's no doubt Autonomy are the real thing. A big plus for this album is that Autonomy have come up with a well finished product which still maintains its fresh, often raw edge.
The album contains 12 full tracks of life and energy. The first, 'Shovel Affection' is a worthy opener, an indication of everything to come while 'But I Thought' follows with a delicate combined balance of inventive riffs and melodic overlays on sharp thoughtful rap.
While there's no doubt 'Was it Worth it?' will receive its fair share of radio attention, S/K/N/S is likely to cause havoc in any live pit through its sheer uncompromising 'in your face' unrelenting pace and energy.

heard this at a friends house and had to order it immediately...think the great vocals of Linkin Park,with a bit of Limp Bizkit rapping - but a super heavyweight UK version of those bands. The singer Soup Carpenter along with guitarist Matt are real stars for the future - amazing guitar work and melodic vocals that are pure magic. They toured UK with Number One Son (another tip for ya- get thier album too) but i missed it. Next time..i'm there front and center!! Produced by the guy that did Staind and Papa Roach albums, so you know its powerful production, crystal clear..all in all amazing!

This cd blew me away, i havnt taken it out of my cd player. Its everything ive been waiting for deep lyrics,Awesome guitar riffs, in your face drum beats, high speed raps and catchy tracks that make you wanna move.
Jay's vocals create everything from catchy, fast rapping, intense screams and highly emotional singing, combined with soups vocals give the melodic and distinctive edge the band needed.
Every track stands out in this amazing compilation, my advice is just go out and buy it!

Aggresive-metal 27 Nov. 2002
By "r_gillmore" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Autonomy is a band coming from England that they practices an extreme nu-metal or wild rap-core . When the comparisons they are obvious, Raging Speedhorn for that wild part in that both vocalist faces in a fight of screams or Deftones for that part but melodic or raps. Undoubtedly the characteristic of this group is that of the two vocalist, without not to deserve to the rest of the group. They would be necessary to say that the riffs is of tint old wave black sabath, but also using many effects. On the songs we do meet at the beginning with the melodic-crushing shovels affections, does the climax arrive in I number it three with Was it worth it? being this one of those but melodic, besides being the simple of the band; it is also worthy SKNS with a frantic end; it follows donkey punch following a style Raging Speedhorn, for the screams; it arrives TO Feeling Undescribable with a quick rap and a base of screams; almost at the end arrives When Things Go Wrong, a very inspired cut that begins with a beautiful guitar effect and a quick rapeo to end in a quite aggressive part. To close with fastener of gold Replaced that conjugates in a very good way all those that this group offers arrives: Aggressiveness, Rap, Melody and good riffs.
