Originally initiated as a thrash metal band in 2006 under the moniker of Tusk, the Vancouver, BC based entity soon burst forth as an irresistible, mutated form of blackened death metal act under the new name “Auroch”. With the three acclaimed full lengths, an EP and a few demo and split releases, together with the appearances at some prestigious fests and gigs in the US, Canada and most recently in Europe, Auroch has steadily been gaining accomplishment in the metal dominion.
“From Forgotten Worlds” –the debut full length showcases the band’s ingenuity through the eight tracks – fueled with technical aesthetic driven blackened death metal. Unpredictable, calamitous song structures of theirs clearly extend the horizon of dark death metal. Taking inspirations from Morbid Angel, Cryptopsy, Gorguts, Kataklysm, Timeghoul and connected malignant squads of the death metal legion, and incorporating them with tenebrous black metal and some tormenting thrashy materials, Auroch has forwarded to its own bridle path. Uncanny, menacing riffs, occasional noisy, dexterous solos, incredibly fast drumming, punchy bass tone, and harsh death growls — all together provide ample proof that Auroch’s aim to create an authentic form of mutilating extreme metal is a wondrous approach.
“From Forgotten Worlds” was previously released on CD via Hellthrasher Productions (2012) and later on LP via 20Buckspin (2016). This November 02, this majestic debut will be seeing the light of its release on pro cassette format for the very first time.
