Roots was one of my top 5 records last year, which made me super excited for Aura ever since the album was announced. Now, thanks to the man behind Saor, Andy Marshall, Sputnikmusic has the chance to host the stream for what is bound to be one of the finest black metal albums of the year, from one of the finest newcomers to the genre. Filled to the brim with authentic Celtic melodies and wonderfully lush primeval soundscapes, Aura is a real treat for those who like their metal atmospheric and epic. You can pre-order Aura from Saor’s bandcamp. The album will officially be released on June 6th, 2014 via Northern Silence Productions.

the ever-important question: can I compare this to Deafheaven without pissing off legions of bm fans?

emester

This really isn't even close to what deaf heaven sounds like

Also I'm not pissed off. :]

Album is really good. Only listened to it once so i can't say if it's better than Roots or not, but Roots was a solid 4.5. This is a 4 on first playthrough
