Tales from Bandcamp: Aura by Saor
Posted by RiffRaff
Rolling hills, mystical lakes, breathtaking valleys, etc. All those wonderful things you think of when you think of the Hinterlands of Scotland are magnificently personified through the music of one man band Saor. Heavy on the awe and wonder of nature this atmospheric blend of folk and black metal simply awes. The folksy layers build a shamanistic sense of wonder while the flurries of the black metal make you feel as if you are a fallen leaf being carried along gusts of wind down and out of the majestic Scottish landscapes.
To say Saor’s recently released album Aura is anything less than a masterpiece would be a gross understatement. With production that sounds both sharp yet maintains that warm tone I look for in my ‘nature metal’ and songs that are as engaging as they are epic this is one record that you can not miss this year. If bands like Moonsorrow, Panopticon, Vintersorg, or Wolves in the Throne Room do wonders to your ear drums, I implore you to click the play button of the Bandcamp stream below. And, as always if you like what you hear, which I’m sure you will, click that buy button. Let us know how much you loved the album in the comments! Peace Love and Metal!!!
