Staff review by
It may be sound strange, but God only knows why Canada is a source of so many original Metal bands. I don't need to give names anyway, you all know of what I'm talking about, but today, one more time I took a slap in my face with an incredible newcomer, Augury. This real UFO, is one of the most original releases that I had to listen to lately, and even if this album was actually released in 2004, I hope that you'll have the possibility to find it, because for sure this is something great

And yes Cosmic Migration is one of the album's highlights, though I prefer The Lair Of Purity

8.5/10 leaning slightly towards a 9 I'd say.

While the songwriting is a bit messy in places (a common trap a lot of Technical DM bands fall into IMO), the variation in dynamics is fantastic, making the album feel more like a journey and less of a 50-minute pummelling (I'm looking at you, Origin).

Great stuff.
