Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars "The Aura" is the debut full-length studio album by Canadian Montreal, Quebec based death metal act Beyond Creation. The album was released through PRC Music in April 2011. Beyond Creation feature among others, former Augury bassist Dominic "Forest" Lapointe.

...bearing that in mind it´s no surprise that the music on "The Aura" is technical (slightly progressive) death metal in the vein of Augury, Obscura and Vale of Pnath (another newcommer to the scene). The musicianship is outstanding, the sound production clear and powerful and the songwriting adventurous and challenging. While all members of the lineup deliver incredible instrumental performances I have to give a special mention to Dominic "Forest" Lapointe. His fretless basswork is simply amazing and fortunately the bass has been given a perfect spot in the mix where it is audible at all times. The vocals are fairly standard for the genre, alternating between deep growling vocals are and a higher pitched snarl. They are allright but if you ask me the music could have prospered from a more unique sounding vocal style.

The 10 tracks on the 52:40 minutes long album vary from shorter instrumental tracks, to "regular" length tracks to a mastodon like the 11:09 minutes long closing track "The Deported". No matter the format, Beyond Creation write strong and entertaining material that´ll keep you on your toes but also make your head bang.

"The Aura" is one of those pleasant surprises you sometimes come by when purchasing an album after reading a review. In my opinion "The Aura" is one of the strongest technical death metal albums released in 2011 along with "The Prodigal Empire (2011)" by Vale of Pnath. There´s that something "extra" about the album that makes it stand out even though it´s not necessarily the most original sounding album. A 4 - 4.5 star (85%) rating is fully deserved.
