Profound Lore is well on its way to becoming one of my favorite record companies. Many of my beloved bands have either remained with or released a record through this label at some point: Altar Of Plagues, Agalloch and Subrosa to name a few. Now add Vaura, as they have teamed up with this prominent record company for their sophomore release The Missing. After earning some mainstream recognition from their debut album, Selenlion, Vaura is now ready to share their signature brand of progressive/psychedelic/black metal with the rest of the music community. The interesting thing about this signing is Vaura fits in with the rest of the bands on the Profound Lore label like a metal head at a Garth Brooks show. Some music columnists go as far as to say their music isn't metal at all - more like a combination of heavy orientated goth with dark wave experimentation - but lets explore why this album, metal or not, succeeds on its own terms.

I liked the first half, but the second half was quite tiresome.


Oh man, this is fucking fantastic. So refreshing and original. Love the '80s song structures melded into post/prog metal. One of the best of 2013 for me

  Totally-freaking-awesome-stuff.



Edited: Beats by a head all prog nominations in the awards.

  Prog? For some reason I always assumed they were one of those blackgaze bands. :/

  Apart from a few bm influences, for example:

- harsh vocals in tracks 8 & 9,
- some tremolo picking guitars here and there.

It's clearly prog album in my eyes.

Their debut "Selenelion" was in avantgarde/experimental section in the 2012 awards, so I don't know where you got these associations

I think they did some shows with Deafheaven recently and I just assumed the two played the same kind of music.

The beauty of this album: Everyone will have their own interpretations. The flawless mixture of so many influences and "genres" is incredible.

I find when people have such a hard time reaching a consensus regarding genres, the album in question is bound to be at least interesting if not good. Maybe I should give these guys a chance.
