Canadian progressive metal act Auras have debuted a new single today called “Momenta”. The song is the first track released from their new LP due out later this year titled “Binary Garden”. Listen to “Momenta” below.

“"Momenta" is a song about showing appreciation to our parents and how we may not always share our appreciation directly to them”, says guitarist Josh Ligaya. “People can become so driven into their careers, passions, or life paths that we tend to forget how much they have done for us. I can personally say that I’m so happy to have such supportive and loving parents that have made me into the compassionate person I am today”.
Auras will release “Binary Garden” on July 12th, 2019, via Entertainment One / Good Fight Music. The new release will be the follow up to “Heliospectrum”, the debut full-length offering from Auras. “Heliospectrum” was the inevitable culmination of years spent perfecting their sonic brew in basements, clubs, and rehearsals, honing a mix of unrelenting heaviness, complex riffs, and melodic ambiance.

As New Noise raved in their four-star review, “Auras specializes in chaotic intensity married with passages of staggering beauty (and nice melodic touches strewn about)”. Canada’s Exclaim! observed, “"Heliospectrum" is an indication that, in a genre overflowing with imitators, Auras are capable of carving out a place that is firmly their own”. Metal Injection’s Nick Abela even included the album on his list of the Top 15 Albums of 2016.
Ottawa native Dean Hadjichristou (Parkway Drive, Protest The Hero, The Kindred) recorded “Binary Garden”, which was mixed by Jordan Valeriote (Silverstein, Counterparts, Structures). Nick Sampson (Of Mice & Men, We Came As Romans, Born Of Osiris) aided in pre-production as Auras endeavored to crystallize their ambitious ideas.
“Binary Garden” saw the band members challenging themselves like never before, from the writing stage through the production process. They shook off preconceived notions and embraced a more “clean” singing and simpler structure without sacrificing their signature sound. The end result features more atmospherics alongside a bigger “feel” .
Auras continue to throw new curveballs, pulverizing through tight musical corners with precision, filling their songs with rhythmic twitches and warped riffs that beckon listeners down a new rabbit hole with each rewarding repeated listening. It’s all imbued with a deep sense of connection to the audience and an emphasis on communication.
