Aruna Azara/A Story Of A Worlds Betrayal/Metal Scrap Records/2013 CD Review

  Aruna  Azara  are  a  band  from  Russia  that  plays  a  very  progressive  and  technical  form  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "A  Story  Of  A  Worlds  Betrayal"  which  was  released  by  Metal  Scrap  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs  that  combine  progressive  and  technical  death  metal  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  with  some  thrash,  jazz  and  funk  influences  along  with  some  melody  being  thrown  into  the  riffing,  while  lead  guitars  are  very  technical  sounding  death  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for  the  acoustic  guitars  when  they  are  utilized  use  finger  picking  to  add  some  progressive  sounding  elements  to t he  album.

  Vocals  range  from  deep  death  metal  growls,  high  pitched  screams,  clean  singing,  whispers  and  some  spoken  word  parts,  while  the  lyrics  cover  philosophical  themes,  as  for t he  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording  with  some  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.  

  In  my  opinion  Azura  Azara  are  a  very  great  sounding  progressive  and  technical  death  metal  band and  if  you  are  a  fan  of t his  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Rites"  "Substance"  and  "Azure  Sun".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.

  1. Hello!
    Thanks a lot for review here
    Really pleased.
    But there's a small typo: not "Aruna Azara" but Aruna Azura. Please correct if possible.
    Thank you!
