The Norwegian thrash power-trio Aura Noir are coming in full sonic force once again! The band is out with their new single titled “Shades Ablaze” today, the second single off the upcoming, semi-self-titled ‘Aura Noire’, due April 27. It is heavy, fast and powerful – just as you would expect from Aura Noir.
Aggressor commented this track: “‘Shades Ablaze’ is one of the few tracks on the album featuring Apollyon on vocals. One of the faster songs. Watch out for Apollyon’s South American inspired drumming near the end. A homage to old Sarcophago and ancient Sepultura.”

With Aura Noire, a title which quite distinctly resembles their band name, Aura Noir churns through some of the most refreshing, yet nostalgic tracks of thrash metal ever to be heard. The album opens with probably one of the most retrospect of riffs, but suddenly summersaults you into the gloriously dissonant and immersive Aura Noir atmosphere.  The soaring and burning shouts of Aggressor intensely glues the otherwise quite varied and playful guitar riffs and drums together, culminating into the essence of thrash that is Aura Noir!

 

The mighty Dimmu Borgir are back after eight years with a brand new album. Now while we wait for Eonian to hit shelves on May 4th you can sit back and take a listen as frontman Silenoz sits down and has a chat with Dave G. Silenoz not only talks about the brand new album but also drops in a little bit of news for Australian fans.
