It's been nine years since Fragmentary Evidence, but Augury is finally back with a new album called Illusive Golden Age due out on March 30 via The Artisan Era. The band is now streaming its first new song in about that long titled "Mater Dolorosa," which makes up for all the time we didn't have new Augury music. From the insane musicianship to the awesome bass solo breakdown halfway through the track, it's just nice to have Augury back to show everyone else how technical death metal is done.
Here's what the band had to say via Revolver.
"We’re proud to present you Illusive Golden Age, our new album, which makes the connection musically and lyrically with Concealed and Fragmentary Evidence. It took us quite a long time to concretize so we’re eager to see people’s reaction to our new music. Illusive Golden Age is a poetic tale about the recurrence of downfall and a glance at some factors that bring down societies, influenced by lost civilizations and their enigmas."
Augury is bassist Dominic "Forest" Lapointe (ex-Beyond Creation, ex-Negativa), guitarist Mathieu Marcotte (ex-Spasme), vocalist and guitarist Patrick Loisel (ex-Foreshadow, ex-Kralizec), and drummer Antoine Baril (Contemplator, From Dying Suns). Pre-order the album here.
