Auro – “Auro”

Label: Obscure Abhorrence Productions
Format: DIGITAL | CD
Country: Germany

Atmospheric Black Metal is the genre that probably comes closest to Auro’s music. A strong ’90s vibe is clearly present in the songs –induced by screeching old-school guitar compositions, skilful keyboard passages and an overall raw, yet differentiated production that delivers that specific feeling and energy. The thunderous, most time ragingly fast-paced drums, together with the blood-freezing vocals of both Dragg and Framan, provide a massive level of dynamics and sheer power within the eight songs presented here. Auro is a merging of the words Aura and Ouroboros. Ouroboros, the self-consumer, symbolizes a completely autarkic entity. It personifies the ultimate utopia to be achieved: The creation of a social and emotional micro cosmos without any interaction with the abominable outer world.  Aura is the tool which is purposely used as a hammer – destructively smashed in the grotesque face of society for deterrence. And yet at the same time to build the foundation of the very own existence – as part of the individual cosmos. This concept is mapped in illustrative lyrics on the album, extending from apocalyptic visions of firestorms, eradication, death and decay to astral journeys, leaving humanity behind and coming into touch with the omnipresent ancient scaled god. 

I. Dämmerung – Einlass des Äußersten 
II. Im Nebelland 
III. Ouroboros – Schuppengott 
IV. Brodelnde Wasser – Rufe und Zeichen 
V. Rammbock – Durchbruch zur Entmenschlichung 
VI. Vision – Das allsehende Auge 
VII. Von Flammentod und Wiederkehr 
VIII. Aura IX. Zwischen den Welten 
X. Unnahbar…

Serrated – “Sifting Through the Remnants”

Label: Blood and Brutality Records

Line-up: Arant: Drums, Bass, and Vocals

Label Website: 

Formed in April of 1998. Entered the studio for the first time in the summer 1999 to record what would become the first half of the debut album “The Essence of Destruction”. Recording would continue for the album in the summer of 2000 and 2001. The first full-lenght was officially released internationally in November of 2011. The band has consistently been releasing material since then with the latest release being 2018’s “Mortal Coil” demo. This demo is made up from a rehearsal session. The first two tracks were completely new releases and the last track was “Anguish” which is featured on the first album. That release along with all others can be found on the band’s official bandcamp page. The band’s newest, yet to be released EP, “Sifting Through the Remnants” features three brand new tracks and two previously released singles newly mixed and mastered. The EP artwork was done by the artist named Adi Dechristianize.

Verglas Sanglant – “Tempête de Tourments”

Label: Self-Released
Format: DIGITAL | CD

This first EP from the French-Canadian Black Metal band Verglas Sanglant is a cold breeze from the north. Bringing both the coldness from the extreme Canadian weather and a breeze of fresh air of new influences in the black metal scene, the band delivers almost 30 minutes of atmospheric, haunting, blasting, freezing melodic black metal music. Hailing from Quebec, the province that gets more and more attention from black metal fans around the world for producing bands like Monarque, Délétère, Forteresse, Frozen Shadows, etc, this EP is much more complete and more atmospheric compared to the raw demo that was previously released. The haunting screams from a tortured soul are going to anguish you, with the production being more polished while keeping the harsh black metal sound that we all crave for. Fans of bands like Emperor, Satyricon, Mayhem, Burzum and Darkthrone will find some influences here and there while discovering something new and different. 

Produced/Mixed/Master at Hell Studio (Québec).
