Maryland-based death/black metallers AURORA BOREALIS have signed with Xtreem Music. The label will release the band's new album, Worldshapers, on March 1st.
Formed back in 1994 by mainman Ron Vento, the band has been developing their unique brand of brutal, fast and technical yet melodic death metal with adequate doses of black metal. One of the most outstanding points in the history of Aurora Borealis has been the usage of top drummers for the recordings of all their albums such as Tony Laureano, Derek Roddy, Tim Yeung and currently Mark Green, which gives a good idea of the band's pedigree, and everything excellently topped by the awesome songwriting of Ron Vento.
Worldshapers is the sixth full length album, their finest work to date, which contains 10 tracks of relentless death/black with an astonishing production at Ron Vento's very osn Nightsky Studios, blending elements that might evoke bands like early HATE ETERNAL, ANGEL CORPSE, IMMORTAL, CARCASS, NILE, EMPEROR... but managed in a masterly way and with lyrics dealing about mythologic, cosmic and futuristic matters.
