Canada's progressive death metal juggernauts AUGURY have posted a five-minute video on their YouTube channel documenting their exploits while on the road with THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER as part of the "American Defloration" tour. Men in gorilla suits, women in underwear, Colgate smiles, "customized" U-Haul advertising, and long silicone weapons all make appearances in the clip, which can be viewed below.
Sonic Unyon Metal will reissue "Concealed", the first album from AUGURY, on March 8. Originally released in 2004 via Galy Records, this updated version features a fully remastered recording of the album, also expanded to include two bonus tracks from the band's 2006 demo. This definitive edition will also be packaged in a new digipak format, designed by Sven de Caluwé of ABORTED.
Formed in Montreal, Quebec at the end of 2001, AUGURY immediately made an impact in the Canadian death metal scene with its technical/classically inspired progressive death metal attack. The unit entered the studio with Yannick St-Amand (MARTYR, UNEXPECT) in 2004 to record their "Concealed" debut. The record was mixed by Jean-Francois Dagenais (KATAKLYSM, MISERY INDEX) and then set loose upon the anxious public. After the release of "Concealed", AUGURY signed with Nuclear Blast Records, who in 2009 unveiled the band's critically acclaimed 2009 album "Fragmentary Evidence", further cementing the band's name into the upper ranks of the progressive death scene.
