Another lovely little split derived from a great friendship from across the oceans. Autarkeia is from Ft. Myers FL and drops one epic track of pained, heavy emo – giant riffs and chaotic intensity complete with furious female vocals. Made of half Jiyuna and half Merkit personnel. Republic of Dreams hails from Germany and Poland and play maniacal emo-violence of the first order – swirling chaos and pounding filth have never sounded so good. 4 tracks in about 4 minutes on their side and there is no time for breathing – pure mastery of the genre from the masters – ex Resurrectionists and Louise Cyphre.
