Aurora Borealis/Timeline: The Beginning And End Of Everything/2011 CD Review

Aurora Borealis are a band from Florida that plays a very blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2011 album "Timeline: The Beginning And End Of Everything".

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of brutal sounding 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 brutal death metal riffs that utilize a great amount of influences from black metal with a great amount of technical riffing being thrown into the music, while the lead guitars are very chaotic sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads with some guitar sound effects being utilized at times as well as some melodies.

Vocals are a mixture of high pitched black metal screams and deep sounding death metal growls with a brief use of spoken word parts, while the lyrics cover dark, evolution, science and occult themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.

In my opinion Aurora Borealis are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Crucible Of Creation" "Stygian Deep" "The Evolution Of Evolution" and "The Rebirth". RECOMMENDED BUY.
