Aurora: Faith/Breaker

Album Review

Former goth rockers get all kinds of metal on

Aurora began life as a Within Temptation-esque goth rock group in 2012, but, upon losing vocalist Jessica Calvesbert earlier this year, did a full 180 into the realm of all-out metal.

Comparing Faith/Breaker to their old material, it’s clear they put out credible tunes across both genres, which is no small feat for a band that’s only existed for three years. New vocalist Rhys Whitehouse provides a raw growl under which riffs battle as opening track Perseverance bounces between metalcore-tinged melodies and piercing, NWOBHM-inspired guitar lines.
