Traumen Von Aurora are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording goes for more of a progressive form of post black metal and this is a review of their 2022 album :Luna" which will b e released in August by Trollzorn Records.
A very dark, heavy and melodic sound starts off the album while the music also has its avant garde moments. The guitar solos and leads also add in a great amount of melody along with the keyboards also mixing in with the heavier sections of the songs at times and all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
At times the music also gets very progressive sounding while clean playing can also be heard on some of the tracks. Elements of post rock can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with a great portion of the tracks also being very long and epic in length and whispers are also utilized briefly.
Grim yet high pitched black metal screams can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with some tracks also adding in some clean singing, spoken word parts and aggressive shouts. When the music speeds up on a couple of tracks a small amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling, most of the album sticks to either a slow or mid tempo direction. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in German and cover depression and nature themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Traumen Von Aurora and if you are a fan of avant garde, progressive and post black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Stille, Mehr Stille" and "Sturmgeweiht". 8 out of 10.
