Vaura’s The Missing was an experimental foray that yielded pleasant results. Despite its poppiness at times, The Missing also incorporated black metal stylings in the vocals, blast beats and eerie synthesizers. Left on the cutting room floor from the Missing sessions was “Sigils,” a b-side you can listen to now.
“Sigils” features Josh Strawn’s vocals floating over blast beats and a pleasant guitar melody. It’s less heavy than one might expect for a band with a member of Gorguts (guitarist Kevin Hufnagel) but Vaura stands comfortably on their own.
Decibel can also confirm that Vaura will be entering the studio to begin recording their third LP in early 2017. The still-untitled record will be Vaura’s second for Profound Lore Records.
