If there is a legendary and pioneer band that started blending Death & Black 20 years ago, this one is AURORA BOREALIS from Maryland (USA). Now, with their 6th full length album already recorded, Xtreem Music is proud to announce the addition of the band to its roster, signing them for the release of “Worldshapers” in spring 2014.
Formed back in 1994 by mainman Ron Vento, the band has been developing their unique brand of brutal, fast and technical yet melodic Death Metal with adequate doses of Black Metal. One of the most outstanding points in the history of AURORA BOREALIS has been the usage of top drummers for the recordings of all their albums such as Tony Laureano, Derek Roddy, Tim Yeung and currently Mark Green, which gives a good idea of the band’s pedigree, and everything excellently topped by the awesome songwriting of Ron Vento.
“Worldshapers” is the 6th full length album, their finest work to date, which contains 10 tracks of relentless Death/ Black with an astonishing production at Ron Vento’s very osn Nightsky Studios, blending elements that might evoke bands like early HATE ETERNAL, ANGEL CORPSE, IMMORTAL, CARCASS, NILE, EMPEROR… but managed in a masterly way and with lyrics dealing about mythologic, cosmic and futuristic matters.
Release date for “Worldshapers” is set for March 1st, 2014 but you can already listen to an exclusive advance track at Xtreem Music’s Youtube channel here:
