The man flaw I find in this band is that they're basically nothing, like our saying goes, neither meat nor fish, neither a thrash metal band neither black metal. While I know there's this recurring obsession with glossy magazines and pretentious know-it-all in the genre which find it amazing anything that cannob be easily catalogued, this is clearly one of the times when a band is sufficiently technical to gain attention, have a really intense network of trade/publicity yet don't seem to glue on me with catchiness. Maybe it's the drum machine but I don't think it's the only thing which makes the thing so plain. AURORA BOREALIS is a two piece band, they play not-so-convincing modern thrash metal here, not so convincing but higher qualitatively scandinavian black metal there. I won't rate this as disastrous, but more of a "good but they have no identity" classification. Already at their second full lenght, it's not surprising they got a contract this fast, as they handle song structures decently, but I think I will better sit and wait how the thing evolves like.
