Autonomist are a five piece band from Northern California. Their self-proclaimed genre is instrumental melodic groove metal – and that’s exactly what they deliver. With an endorsement from Mesa Boogie to boot, their debut EP, Realms (2014), is more of a musical journey than your standard EP. With standout tracks such as ‘Majestic’ and ‘Departure’; Realms contains a good mix of djent and ethereal riffs which make up Autonomist’s unique sound.
I saw this video for Mesa Boogie on YouTube while window shopping for amps. I didn’t think I would find another artist worthy of sharing my instrumental playlist with Fred Brum – yet here they are.
