What a stunning return for Aureole! Hovering somewhere in space(!) between black metal and funeral doom is this trio of crushing cosmic void channeling.
Favorite track: Maw Belltower.
Through an entrance, sentient stone golem command a besieged ruin unknowing of the bell hanging below the gate. As Alunarian resonance sounds throughout the structure, the interloper golem, in this moment of time, are controlling of their present universe. They create stone bridges, towers and walls with their bodies, and attempt to connect themselves with further reaches of their untaught cosmos.
The Alunarian bell's maw, however, has a different purpose for such explorers...
Alunarian Bellmaw, as with all releases under the Aureole name, is one of several ongoing entries to address various states of the mysterious cosmic citadel, Alunar. This recent addition haunts the BELLMAW and it's relationship with the stone golems that have existed in the walls since recorded periods. From time around time, the bell seems to use sound to absorb others around it.
