The mini-album follows up on Above Aurora’s debut album, “Onwards Desolation” released in 2016.
Vocalist and guitarist, V, comments:
“Path to Ruin” is continuing the pessimistic vision of the previous album. We are treading the previously chosen path of dissonance, mid and slow tempos, along with the moderately selected sounds in a slightly different form.”
released April 6, 2018
Path to Ruin” was born towards the end of 2017 in Reykjavik, Iceland at Studio Emissary. Mixing and mastering was completed by Stephen Lockhart.
Albums like this give me hope for black metal as a whole. This is a breathtaking, sweeping behemoth that will take you on a journey you may not want to come back from. It’s one of my favorite discoveries of the past five years, and I can only hope that they make more CDs. 100% recommended! admiral_stiffplank
Harsh and raw, yet also melodic, with haunting distorted guitarwork, some industrial pieces mixed in - an excellent black metal release and a huge step up from their already strong first album! FlashMuc
