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.

THE HAUNTED: ALBUM RECORDINGS STARTING SOON; SCANDINAVIAN TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED!


After finishing a successful UK tour together with Meshuggah, Swedish Thrash Metallers THE HAUNTED are soon to commence recordings for their newest, 9th studio album effort, which is expected to be released worldwide by Century Media Records later in 2017.

THE HAUNTED’s guitarist Ola Englund checked in with the following status update for the new album: “After almost 2.5 years since the release of ‘Exit Wounds’, we’re finally hitting the studio again. This time around we have chosen Russ Russell of Parlour Studios to record/mix the album, so we’re heading over to UK early march to start with the drums. And telling from the pre-productions, this will be a bit more of a dynamic album than “Exit Wounds”, song-wise. I’m very excited to let the fans hear what we have in store. It’s brutality and beauty in perfect disharmony.”
