"Autumn Requiem" is the debut release of the metal band Mortual.
The concept album uses the language of symbols and music to tell the story of the young Poet, touching on the subjects such as rejection, tragic love, loss of innocence and faith. The music contained in the album is not easy to classify - it contains elements of progressive metal, gothic metal, melodic death metal, and even symphonic unblack metal. The artists themselves describe the majority of genres represented on the CD as "drama metal".
The album contains eight tracks that create a 69 minute long symphony.
The band was supported during the recording by five talented musicians: Marta Wolak, Paula Sidorczuk, Konrad Marecki, Izabella Zawadzka and Jakub Huchrak.
The graphics were created by: Agata Winiarska, Paula Sidorczuk and Patrycja Przychodna.
