Aureole is Markov Soroka's abstract and ambient exploration of the universe around him. It takes place in the same narrative world as his other projects Tchornobog and Drown but explores the depths of space. "Alunar" is Aureole's 2014 debut, a fuzzed out and distinctly atmospheric work inundated in Cascadian black metal sounds although emerging from a completely different locale.
"Like any genre of music, there are true gems that transcend what our perceptions of that genre are, and I think Alunar is solidly in that category. " - Metal Bandcamp
"It’s a living, breathing landscape of hopelessness that this album paints in its sprawling lamentations." - Cvlt Nation
"Alunar" is now reissued by Lupus Lounge / Prophecy Productions as Digipak CD and - for the first time - on LP (black and silver).
