aurora Faith/Breaker (CD, £8.75)label: In At the Deep End
Since forming in 2012, Aurora have hammered out a space for themselves in the UK hardcore/metal scene by impressing and pulverising with their unique twist of heavy metalcore. The band released their first EP, Easily Broken, at the end of 2012 to much applause. This landed them with gig slots touring up and down the country with the likes of Hacktivist, Marmozets, TRC and Let Live. After a few years on the gig circuit, playing as many festivals as they could, and growing their fan base, the band lost their frontwoman. In true Aurora style, never scared to leap into the unknown, the band decided to change directions. They bought on board Rhys Whitehouse, formerly of WolveXhys. With the addition of a male vocalist, Aurora have in the last few months transformed into a heavier beast while still maintaining a unique sound, that is as beautiful as it is crushing. And this heavier Aurora sound is evident in the debut album Faith/Breaker.
