Aura Mortis are a duo from Serbia that plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Proclamation OF The Sardonic Flame" which was released by Zly Demiurg.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the ep along with some ritualistic and ambient touches before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the riffs also use a great amount of melody along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion.
Vocals are mostly grim yet deep black metal screams that also have their high pitched moments while both of the tracks are very long and epic in length while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and ritualistic soundscapes are also used briefly.
Aura Mortis plays a style of black metal that is very raw, melodic and traditional sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover misanthropy, death and darkness themes.
In my opinion Aura Mortis are a very great sounding raw and melodic black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "In Being Engraved". 8 out of 10.
