Lunar Aurora - Elixir of Sorrow
Artist: Lunar Aurora
Album: Elixir of Sorrow
Genre: Black Metal
Lunar Aurora is the band I've listened to the most in the past year, and I wish I had found out about it sooner. It's a band that makes very dense, atmospheric music that is quite clearly black metal but is also somehow different from anything else I've come across. In fact, the only thing I ever really dislike about Lunar Aurora is the occasional use of battle/screaming samples, which is really unnecessary for a band that crafts such amazing dark atmosphere with every song. The album Andacht is my favorite, but this one is fantastic as well! If you are a fan of Drudkh, I think you will definitely enjoy this.
