Aura Noir/Out To Die/Indie Recordings/2012 CD Review

Aura Noir are a band from Norway that has been around since the 90's with the band members being established veterans in many bands out there that play a mixture of black and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "Out To Die" which was released by Indie Recordings.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine black metal and thrash together while the lead guitars are very chaotic sounding guitar solos and leads in the mid 80's/early 90's tradition.

Vocals are a mixture of black metal and blackened thrash screams and growls, while the lyrics cover dark, hateful, satanic and anti religion themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound.

In my opinion this is another great album from Aura Noir and if you where a fan of their previous recordings, you should enjoy this album as well. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Trenches" "Abbadon" and "Priest's Hellish Fiend". RECOMMENDED BUY.
