Auri - Auri

Auri is basically a trio, which features Finnish singer Johanna Kurkela along with Tuomas Holopainen and Troy Donockley from Nightwish. It’s basically, a distraction from the “dayjob” and for the most part some nice “choral” ideas that could just be wasted – since most of them seem hardly compatible with what Nightwish has turned...

Hypno5e to release new studio album “Alba – Les Ombres Errantes” on April 6th 2018

French post-metal pioneers Hypno5e have always been a borderline band, in the truest sense of the term: a band that transcends the borders and limitations of not only the genre of music, which is commonly considered to be their territory, but the territory of music itself.
