    Nah bollocks, Falloch is some incredibly lame pseduo-folk-blackgaze. This is awesome. The violins and whistle is used to great effect and not over the top at all I think.

    @ Un_Autre_Con: Thumbs up for the honest opinion, though i don't see this as generic celtic metal. This band gives me really strong vibes of the highlands, and how is that a bad thing? At least this isn't that usual happyhappyjoyjoy fucking bagpipe/flute garbage bands like Eluveitie shit into existence. And @ Blackpaper88 go be fucking edgy somewhere else.

    The new album sounds like something that would be used on an advert for the Scottish Tourist Board. It's nearly as lame as Falloch. Am I the only one who's disappointed? Enya metal.

    First time listening to this and its amazing, the combination of the new ageish and the black metal is pulled off expertly

    quite some time the album feels on the verge to kitsch, but very enjoyable nonetheless...

    Seems there are quite a lot of authorities on 'quality' here... Idiots must to be banned!

    I thought it was quite awesome that the guitars are in lo fi while the celtic music are the prominent part of the music.

    Oh this is good. I was looking for "new music" and suddenly "Aura" appeared from nowhere, I'm really happy it did.

    And yeah, I really love the new age-ish feeling the Celtic instrumentation brings to the album as well.
