wow,a new progband on the horizon??



The Aurora project - Biography

Call them mystical, profound, psychedelic or theatrical: the Aurora Project is unlike any other typical rock band out there.

Instant Magic
In 1999, while playing the famous fantasy card game “Magic: The Gathering,” the six future members of The Aurora Project become acquainted with each other. They find out that, not only do they all love “Magic,” they also share a passion for mysterious rock music. At this point, the Aurora Project is a work in the making.
The Aurora Project’s music delivers powerful atmospheric progressive rock, where influences by bands such as Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, Tool, Stephen Hawking and Anathema can be found.

After years of rehearsal, in 2001 the band decided to record their first demo in a Dutch publisher’s studio, CAT Music. CAT Music was so thoroughly impressed by the band, that they provided them with the opportunity to record a full-length album under CAT Music’s licensing. The Aurora Project maximized their efforts and produce the concept album Unspoken Words.

In the following period, all efforts were coordinated to find a suitable record company to release the album. In March 2005, the band succeeded and signed with the Dutch record company DVS Records. The internationally oriented label has proved its thorough understanding of the progressive rock market with previous successful releases by bands such as Wolverine, Into Eternity and, most recently, Alias Eye and Voyager.

The cd is being released next week

I think they have a 80' neo prog sound, some called them "tool for the sympho fool"

The first reviews in europe are very positive.

To xentagz ... this is your latest post opening a new thread ... since it is on the same band ... I have combined the two threads ... I have also renamed it and move it to Bands and Albums where it should probably be for now ... cheers, Trotsky ...


This is xentagz's latest post:



Dear progfans,

I heard a few samples of "The aurora project" on the internet, it seems they have their first album out, but i cant read the reviews because of the language (dutch).

The samples i heard where from www.theauroraproject.com

Can someone explain to me if the reviews are positive??
And does anybody has more information about this progressive/symphonic band?

Greetings
xentagz
