Autism changes band name

2021-12-05 by tomhetas | 51 Comments
Lithuanian post-metal band Autism have changed their name to AORTES and have released a new pro-shot live recording of their new song "Crown of Nails".

Band statement:

"Another important step in our history. We are changing the band name. Current line up changes (Karolis leaving the band and Andrius joining as a full-time vocalist) and a big shift in sound of our new songs were the main points that made us decide it's probably time to mark the old chapter closed and start a new one. We sat down to discuss this and came to a decision that Autism is becoming AORTES. So that’s that."

It is very funny that their reason has nothing to do with the word or idea of autism itself, just that the band has changed their sound.

maybe the karolis guy has autism and now that he's leaving, the name is no longer appropriate (?

good move, fun fact did you know that one point Lithuania consumed the most alcohol per capita, of all countries in the entire world?

I did know that.

So the cure for Autism is clearly erm... alcohol in vast quantities? Cool, let's all get wasted!

I mean if the original purpose of the name was to raise awareness or whatever then I appreciate the intention, maybe? Although if it wasn't put alongside anything of substance, then idk it could be easily misconstrued as a piss-take? Regardless of the reasons this is a good move, although I can't help but wonder if the reasoning in their statement is genuine.

Welllll in this day and age, moral stances are so fucking saturated. so the contrarian point tends to be a more utiliarian/libertarian type reaction. so he could just be reflexively feeling that way

Imagine thinking calling your band “autism” is on the same level as calling it a slur. If anything it helped normalize it.

Baffled that the reason why they changed it is change of members/sound and not... well.

If they were a hardcore punk band I'd call them pussies, but for a pretentious post-metal band I'd say it was a smart decision.
