9th full-length album from Kekal.
Whirlwind Records (December 2012)
Yes No Wave Music (June 2013)
"Autonomy" marks as the second Kekal album being recorded and released without official band members. The term 'autonomy' itself reflects the current state of the band; that it remains autonomous and is kept alive by getting significant contributions from its former members as a collective and/or collaborative work of art in the forms of music, artwork, and audio production.
Carefully crafted and anxiously delivered, the music on "Autonomy" can be best described as emotionally adventurous and introspective in nature. As dark as it is illuminating, this album will definitely challenge listeners to free themselves from seeing music as a mere entertainment commodity. Simplicity takes the most important role on the album, as it values the most basic and primordial drive to balance life's complexities. The visual artwork depicted on CD booklet complement the music, and together, they create one solid statement to evoke our subconscious minds - the wildest imaginations and visuals that oftentimes are being suppressed in a conscious level by conformity to the norms.
