INTERVIEW: AURA NOIR (Norway)


Interview by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy

Black metal thrash masters Aura Noir are finally unleashing their anticipated and long-awaited sixth new album titled ‘Aura Noire’ after a six-year gap and follow up to their last album ‘Out To Die’ (2012), and you can expect some of their finest and rawest material to date. I caught up Apollyon (Drums/Vocals) to discuss their origins, the new album and their upcoming tour…

Firstly can you tell us about your formation back in 1993?

Aura Noir started out as a solo project from Aggressor. The music was more avant guard-ish and doesn’t really have much in common with today’s Aura Noir.For his second demo recording, I helped him out with drums on one song and guitar on a second. After that, he ditched the whole project and we decided to continue playing together, still using the name Aura Noir but playing more thrashy music. This was in 1995 I guess, so we don’t really celebrate any 25 year anniversary until then.

How did you come up with your name?

Einar, who plays the drums in Virus and Infernö gave Aggressor the name back when he was playing more weird music.
