Leading a new season in music, Daniel Mitchell runs a cutting edge solo metal project named Autumns Eyes. A deep combination of heavy music with an abundance of ultimate creativity and artistic direction similar to the great film composer Danny Elfman.
Mitchell began his career in 1999 playing guitar in an industrial metal band, where he shared stages around New England with heavy acts of the same vein. Two years into touring the band broke up, and members went their separate ways. Mitchell then began recording his own music on which he would perform drums, guitar, bass, keyboard, and vocals. His decision to stay clear of another band, and move forward on his own, would plant the seed for all Autumns Eyes music to come.
In 2011, Dan paid tribute to his musical idol Peter Steele (of Type O Negative fame) who passed away one year prior. The Autumns Eyes front man collaborated with leading metal news site MetalUnderground.com to release “All For None, None For All: A Tribute to Peter Steele” which featured twelve cover songs of both Type O Negative and Carnivore material performed by various underground metal bands including Autumns Eyes.
“Ever since I laid eyes on the red Mockingbird that Slash used in the ‘You Could Be Mine’ video, I was hooked. From the moment I picked up and learned the guitar, I stuck with BC Rich. Their sound, their style, their playability, everything about them embodies what I represent with Autumns Eyes. They stick to their guns, never adhere to trends, and always respect their roots. Something you rarely find anywhere, let alone a guitar company.”
