The sophomore album from Brooklyn New York’s Vaura, The Missing, is finally available on vinyl from The Flenser. Vaura has perfected a cohesive sound out of a mixture of vastly different genres including, ’80’s goth, black metal, and progressive rock.
Vaura is an all-star cast of Brooklyn avant grade and metal musicians, featuring Joshua Strawn (Azar Swan) on vocals, Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts, Dysthymia), drummer Charlie Schmid, and avant-grade cult superstar Toby Driver on bass (Secret Chiefs 3, Kayo Dot, Maudlin of the Well). Despite the often complex musicality of the members other projects, Vaura’s sound is more streamlined with atmospheric mid-80’s vocals mixed with a hypnotic rhythm section intersected with black metal blast beats, chorus-laden guitars, and synthy overtones.
The Missing was originally issued on CD by Profound Lore Records to great critical acclaim appearing on many year end lists. Vaura’s debut album, Selenelion was released by New York's Weird Records in 2012.
