Norway's Aura Noir have returned with a new recording which continues the blackened thrash metal style of previous releases and this is a review of their 2018 album "Aura Noire" which will be released on April 28th by Indie Recordings.
A very heavy 80's thrash influenced sound starts off the album while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the vocals being done in a very angry black metal style that has traces of both the first and second wave style as well as updating the music for a more modern era.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also bringing in a small amount of melody and at times the vocals go into more of an aggressive thrash direction and when guitar leads a re utilized they also remain very true to an old school style of extreme metal and the music always remains heavy.
Aura Noir creates another recording that remains true to their blackened form of thrash, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover evil, blasphemy, death and darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Aura Noir and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dark Lung Of The Storm" "Demoniac Flow" and "Cold Bone Grasp". 8 out of 10.
