Netherlands shoegazy black metallers An Autumn For Crippled Children will release their new album All Fell Silent, Everything Went Quiet on May 1 via Prosthetic Records (pre-order), and we're premiering the new song "Water's Edge." You can very much hear the "black metal" in the evil shrieks on this song, but vocals (which are very low in the mix as is) aside, this is actually a gorgeous song that probably has more in common with Sigur Ros or Brian Eno than with metal.

"'Water's Edge' is about special places from one's childhood," the band tells us. "It's generally about personal 'special' sentimental places. That mixed feeling of loss, nostalgia, missing a certain moment in time, missing a certain place long gone, missing certain people. Times that will never come back. Times that where good. Somethings like that."
