CelebNMusic247.com has the latest music from AURAS with their upcoming and moving groove-metal masterpiece, Binary Garden
AURAS sets on smashing boundaries are releasing ten songs of psychic exploration across musical frontiers with the upcoming album Binary Garden.
It could be mistaken for the work of alchemists or shamans, were it not for the warm charm of four lads from Waterloo, Ontario who worship Super Smash Bros. and beer pong with nearly as much dedication as their discipleship of groove.
A conceptually driven head trip worthy of an episode of “Black Mirror”, the new AURAS album explores the complex relationship between humankind and technology, as people evolve from symbiotic parts of mother nature into cybernetic bits of code. The intellectual depth of the subject matter on Binary Garden is juxtaposed by its immediate accessibility. The expansion of AURAS into bigger melodic hooks is more suited to the digital single oriented era than ever, even as Binary Garden works as a cohesive whole.
AURAS hail from a country that’s produced a high volume of heavy music innovation.
It’s the nation that blessed the world with the legendary Rush, prog-metal pioneers Voivod, metalcore madmen Protest The Hero, and death metal stalwarts Cryptopsy. A newer entry to this lineage, AURAS operate in a musical landscape instantly familiar to devotees of Meshuggah, Periphery, The Contortionist, and Tool. But their specific take on the genre combines the bite of thrash, the weight of death metal, and the spirit of hardcore with a hypnotic groove-oriented pulse shrouded in a captivating atmosphere.
AURAS have demonstrated their skill at shifting from bludgeoning riffs to ambient experimentalism and back again across two stellar albums and as many EPs. Audiences have been properly enraptured by their sound, taking in their immersive performances alongside celebrated acts like The Contortionist, CHON, Erra, and Toothgrinder.
Vocalist Eric Almeida, guitarist/vocalist Josh Ligaya, guitarist Aaron Hallman, and drummer Nathan Bulla first made their intentions clear with their initial EP, Panacea (2013). A follow-up single, “Adverse Condition,” firmly established them as like-minded creative peers of bands like Tesseract and Disperse. The Circle Pit declared them Band Of The Week before they’d even done much touring. The Crestfallen EP (2015) hit #1 on the iTunes Metal chart and was picked for inclusion on Spotify’s Best New Metal playlist.
AURAS is hailed by MetalSucks as one of “the most cutting-edge, forward-thinking young metal bands on the scene today”
AURAS, inevitable culmination of years spending to perfect their sonic brew in basements, clubs, and rehearsals, honing a mix of unrelenting heaviness, complex riffs, and melodic ambiance has paid off with “Binary Garden.”
