    Debut conceptual work by Italian band Whales And Aurora represents classical post metal. If you can imagine a mixture of melodic passages typical for ISIS, powerful guitar riffs in the vein of early Pelican and energetic vocals of Cult of Luna, you know what can be found at «The Shipwreck». Despite this fact, the music features some originality creating emotional landscapes in all seven tracks of the new album. The album is recorded at Raptor Studio and produced by Matteo “Ciube” Tabacco and Chris Dowhan from Planet Red Studios who also worked with Giant, Spitfire, Night Like These and The Black Dahlia Murder.

    Tracklist:

    1. Refused Recounting Words
    2. Achieving the Unavoidable
    3. The Aground Hard-ship
    4. Abandoned Among Echoes
    5. Awakened by the Aurora
    6. A New Awareness

    Whales and Aurora signed to Slow Burn Records for release of “The Shipwreck” album in may 2012. ”The Shipwreck” is the result of several days of hard work. It is a concept album that brings the listener, step by step, to a negative status of consciousness; a desperate, black and white vision which arrives to an apathetic acceptation of things as they are. Passing by different chapters and different emotional landscapes, the bad journey described by W&A is composed by 7 tracks. Recorded at Raptor Studio with producer Matteo “Ciube” Tabacco and Chris Dowhan from Planet Red Studios (Virginia, USA), who worked with bands such Giant, Spitfire, Night Like These and The Black Dahlia Murder.

    Whales and Aurora’s project was born at the beginning of 2008 as a 3-piece band, with former members of LaPeste.
