“Illusive Golden Age has Augury executing a flawless return from hibernation, effortlessly combining instrumental gymnastics and pyrotechnics with a sense of musical adventurism”
Hailing from Montreal, Canada, Augury began his journey in 2001 with an intent from the start to deliver an extreme dose of death-black-.progressive metal along with an intriguing/scientific and esoteric lyrical concept. In that period the band was born from the ashes of many local acts such as: Foreshadow, Kralizec (Patrick Loisel), Atheretic, Quo Vadis, (Dominic ''Forest'' Lapointe), Spasme (Mathieu Marcotte), and Disembarkation, Neuraxis (Etienne Gallo) and Arianne Fleury.
With the album ''Concealed'' - 2004 and ''Fragmentary Evidence'' - 2009, the band quickly draw attention from metal lovers and media around the globe and toured several times in North America following their record deal with Nuclear Blast records in 2009. After touring most intensively in 2009-2010, the band since then played at the Heavy Mtl festival in 2013 and 2015 to name a few and mostly during that time devoted themselves to the songwriting and composition for their 3rd effort.
Newly signed on The Artisan Era, and with Antoine Baril (From Dying Suns, Contemplator) now behind the drum kit, Augury has come out with new ideas for this album blended with influences from their two predecessors; Concealed and Fragmentary Evidence, following the same path of extreme pounding riffing mixed to the sci-fi/historical concept.
After being recorded at Humanoise Studio with Mathieu and Hemisphere Studio with Antoine, the new album is now in mixing process with Christian Donaldson (The Grid Studio) and is set for a worldwide release in spring 2018 on The Artisan Era!
Be prepared to be hit by the extreme progressive tornado this spring!
