Today, individualist black/ambient/industrial cult Empire Auriga stream the entirety of their forthcoming album,Ascending the Solar Throne, at esteemed cultural journal Halifax Collect. The band’s long-awaited comeback record,Ascending the Solar Throne is set for release on August 19th viaMoribund Records. Empire Auriga's debut album, Auriga Dying, was critically acclaimed for its ahead-of-the-time fusion of black metal, dark ambient, and industrial, all coalescing into a cosmic black hole that was both devouring and debilitating. Eight years later, Empire Auriga return with the highly anticipated Ascending the Solar Throne. Aptly titled once again, Empire Auriga bring us the true sound of interstellar death with Ascending the Solar Throne. Here, the mysterious trio exists as the delirious melancholia awakened by union with the void, wisps encircling the kernal of futility at the center of each body, shining with listless abandon, seething as evaporation through obsolete ruins, smoldering with the intuition of having seen through the membrane. This is the sound of Ascending the Solar Throne! Hear the entirety for yourself exclusively HERE, courtesy of Halifax Collect.
