Following the departure of both singer and drummer, the Autumn Offering soldiered on with new vocalist Matt McChesney and percussionist Allen Royal, allowing the reinvigorated metal ensemble to put a slightly different spin on its heavy-yet-melodic approach with 2007's FEAR WILL CAST NO SHADOW. Showing no signs of transitional awkwardness, the Florida-based group charges ahead with blistering thrash-influenced post-hardcore tracks such as "From Atrophy to Obsession" and "The Castaway."
