Addaura - ...And the Lamps Expire digi-A5


Addaura. Hailing from Seattle, Washington, this four-piece band as only released one full-length album thus far. Back in 2012, Addaura released "Burning for the Ancient". This album is nothing completely new. It's aggressive, yet beautiful and atmospheric. One can definitely draw comparisons from US black metal heavyweights Wolves in the Throne Room, who are also from Washington and are originators of this whole "Cascadian black metal" movement. The sound of the music generally is repetitive and droning, relying heavily on a vast array of soundscapes and a dream-like atmosphere.
