Auger – From Now On I (CD Album – darkTunes Music Group)
Background/Info: “From Now On I” is the second full length album by the British duo Kyle Wilson – Kieran Thornton.
Content: Auger deals with a rather familiar goth-metal sound, which is achieved with some electro arrangements. Most of the songs are clearly goth-metal orientated, but there for sure is also a trace of dark-rock. The album features 12 songs and especially the last part of the opus excels in power and an electro-metal harmony. The vocals are powerful and enraged, which totally fits to the sound.
+ + + : “From Now On I” clearly sounds like a powerful production revealing carrying choruses. There clearly is a melodic approach in the writing, which makes it pretty accessible. I’m referring to songs like “Do Not Wake”, “They’ll Find You” and “Alone”, which reminds me a bit of Metallica. I especially like the hard guitar creating harmony with the electronic arrangements.
– – – : The album is enjoyable, but missing an absolute hit.
Conclusion: Auger has accomplished a noticeable job during the past two/three years. I’m not sure if they’ll be the ‘next big thing’, but there clearly hides potential in this band.
Best songs: “They’ll Find You”, “Do Not Wake”, “Alone”, “I Declare”.
