John Cratchley This album is visceral (at times the music threatens to flay you alive) yet for all that there is corrupted beauty here. He may well be aiming at the Jacobean concept of the skull beneath the skin.
Music from the dark side,yes,but it has the power to ensnare your senses and provoke strong emotions. Abrasive and excoriating seem to be apt descriptions to apply here and the track 'Sola Fide' may well contain the rare inclusion of a power drill to Mr Frost's instrumental armoury. Music to accompany Man's fall from Grace but with the inclusion of enough hints at his possible redemption.

about

A U R O R A is Ben Frost’s highly anticipated fifth solo release, his first since the widely acclaimed 2009 album BY THE THROAT.

A U R O R A aims directly, through its monolithic construction, at blinding luminescent alchemy; not with benign heavenly beauty but through decimating magnetic force.

This is no pristine vision of digital music, it is a filthy, uncivilized offering of interrupted future time where emergency flares illuminate ruined nightclubs and the faith of the dancefloor rests in a diesel-powered generator spewing forth its own extinction, eating rancid fuel so loudly it threatens to overrun the very music it is powering.
