Prezedit: Might as well edit the fist post.

Prog/Black metal band from Australia. As of 5-15, found new lead guitarist.

Main Vocalist- Xenoyr and Vocals/Violinist- Tim Charles post here, so feel free to ask them questions; they're nice blokes and probably will answer. Guitarist Matt and drummer Dan hasvejoined recently as well.

Note: The band does sanction downloads of 'The Aurora Veil' demo from torrents, etc...

Here's a link http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NI1MLABS

Will be updated with label information.

Quality stuff to say the least. The three track 'The Aurora Veil' is, in layman's terms, the best demo/debut release I have ever heard.

Good band mate. Listening to it right now, and I must say for a demo this is quality work. I look forward to seeing what else these guys have to offer.

Yup, not bad at all. Good quality for a demo, like ^ he said.

Hell's yeah. These guys are great, I just wish I had money to order the demo. I love the violin parts, and the guitar is great too. Again to Mr. President.

I was into them but I got bored of them easily.
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

Ok I have a second opinion now, not only is this ****ing brutal, but they might be the next Opeth.

I managed to get hold of The Aurora Veil on Soulseek.

Needless to say, it owns. I just wish i could hear it through something better than my goddamn laptop speakers.

They have some songs on youtube also if you want to listen to them, here I'll post some links.

This one is called, "of the Leper Butterflies".
I love the part at around 2:40 where the clean vocals come in, and then he starts going all falsetto; good stuff.

Sorry but I just had to bump this back up. "Tapestry of the Starless Abstract" has been killing me every day for the past week or so. I love the whole ****ing this, the heavy first few minutes, the classical interlude, and especially the outro afterward. Now I just have to get my hands on a copy of the demo somehow...

Wow I'm very impressed. Can someone manage to find where I can acquire their album? It appears you can't buy it on they're site... or maybe I'm just not seeing it.

Well, they're unsigned and it's only a demo, so it may be hard to come by. But if anyone does know how to buy a copy, let me know too.

Soulseek had the demo for moi. I hate downloading music, but I couldn't find a distro that had it.

Well, how about this: if one of you Australian guys ever get a chance to pick up a copy in person, let me know and I'll just do a Paypal thing for one. I'm only half kidding.

I sent them an email asking how to buy the Aurora Veil Demo and Xenoyr replied
"For overseas: It would be $15 AUD via paypal address: xenoyr@gmail.com
or international money order."

He said to let him know if I lived in Australia because if I did I could get it some other way, so I'll probably do it that way.

Sweet, I'll probably send them an email myself to try to get one. It may be sweet to have one of their original demos down the road when they're signed and whatnot (hopefully).

Wow. That just blew my mind. Especially As Icicles FAll. How many other (not on myspace) songs are on the demo?

It's just the three, haha. But they're 11:55, 11:51, and 9:25, respectively.

Yeah and they trick you into thinking you can download the tracks, then you can only hear the first few seconds of them. Damn!

I haven't heard of them before, but they are pretty awesome. The deeper growling was kickass on their part, well good on them. On that note, it also doesn't look like they wear a lot of corpsepaint or knee high spiked boots. Which is sweet, cause they aren't just like everything else out there.

Does anyone else think the violin player is absolutely godlike? Especially around 4:30 in the Tapestry of the Starless Abstract. I also like that they are more fast paced than Opeth (from what I've listened to)
