AURA NOIR - Black Thrash Attack CD
Norway's Aura Noir was formed in 1993 by Aggressor & Apollyon in pursuit of a more thrash-based form of black metal than much of what was coming out at the time - particularly in their homeland - citing bands such as Slayer, Sodom & Kreator as inspirations along with purveyors of the scene such as Venom, for a dirtier, stripped down, violent black/thrash metal sound. Their first official release was the Dreams Like Deserts EP on Hot Records in 1994, and from there-on the band has become a cult act. Black Thrash Attack was Aura Noir's debut full length album, originally recorded & released in 1996, it was a continuation of the intense thrash riffing displayed on Dreams Like Deserts. This edition of Black Thrash Attack has been newly re-mastered by the band in Oslo, & also includes an exclusive cover of the venom classic Heavens on Fire, from the cult Black Metal album.
