In 2016 Scarlet Aura has released their first album, the album that got them to the European stage and brought worldwide fans attention. This year, the band celebrates the 5th anniversary of Falling Sky in no other way than with a re-recording, re-mix and remastering of this amazing album. As the original was produced by the well-known RoyZ, the anniversary edition is produced by the one who also wrote the songs - Mihai “Myke D” Danciulescu, producer & guitarist of the band. This special treat was recorded at the Silver City Studio by the actual Scarlet Aura members - Aura Danciulescu, Mihai Danciulescu, Rares Rene Nistor and Sorin Ristea.
To mark this 5th year of amazing ups for the band, Falling Sky will be available for the fans, digitally, on 16th of April, but the fans wouldn’t need to wait too long, because this month, on January 22nd, the first Single will be out also with a video! Scarlet Aura fans or “the Scarlets” as they call themselves know already this masterpiece because the band ends their every show with it since the initial release and that is "Colour Blind". A powerful song about betrayal, deceit and the courage to step forward immediately gets into the listeners blood and heart, making it unforgettable. Scarlet Aura comes with this new audio version of The Falling Sky album in between of other two releases and those are the Stormbreaker from 2020 and their 3rd and last album from "The Book Of Scarlet" trilogy that is coming up next this Autumn. There’s only true metal delivered so be ready for nothing less!
“Initially I worked on the mix and master for the Falling Sky album with some of my friends, good producers from the music industry but it never got the idea I had to the point where I wanted it to be and I really believe that now it is getting there and mostly this is why I wanted to mark this 5th anniversary with a new production which also includes our actual band members. To our fans, we send all the love and this digital release that we made especially for them, because we know how much they appreciate this album and that our dream adventure started with it. Thank you all for the support, see you in Autumn on tour“.

Exactly two years after the release of their debut full-length album, Cern Sol, Romanian Black Metal band Genune announce the follow-up material, a second full-length album titled Inert & Unerring scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2021 in collaboration with Loud Rage Music.
Here's what the band had to say about the new album:
"Inert & Unerring contains tracks that are compositionally more akin to one another, but it otherwise follows the same stylistic choices seen in our previous album. Without going into detail, its theme revolves around identity and the past, exploring the notion of heritage through different lenses. Inert & Unerring is not a concept album, as the lyrics don’t have any plot or characters to follow along, they’re instead composed of images and perceptions put into words, to allow for personal interpretation. The title is taken from a novel written by Arthur Koestler, that is relevant to the subject matter of this album."
More details on Inert & Unerring are soon to be revealed. In the meantime Cern Sol is still available for streaming and download directly from the band: https://genune.bandcamp.com/

Scarlet Aura have become a staple in the European metal scene with their powerful live shows and crushing heavy metal. After touring internationally with artists like Rhapsody of Fire, Tarja, Beast in Black and Soto, releasing critically acclaimed albums and gaining steady followers on all channels, Scarlet Aura are now set to release their fifth album “Stormbreaker” and just shared the album’s cover art, tracklisting and release date with their fans for their anticipated new album.
The brand-new album “Stormbreaker” features the previously released single track ‘High in the Sky’ which debuted live during their summer tour.
Check out the music video ‘High in The Sky’ as first single from the new album “Stormbreaker” here https://youtu.be/xg-4sWp_QzY
The new album “Stormbreaker” will also mark the official release of the second fantasy book volume from the same trilogy. Scarlet Aura continues the conceptual “The Book Of Scarlet Trilogy” showing who they are through the musical and the lyrical part. The new album and book release date are set for 27th of March 2020.
Aura, the front lady, states:-
“As an artist I`m not afraid to dig into the unknown by approaching sensible subjects in our songs, subjects like the difficulty of being honest with others but also with yourself regarding your own feelings, the need of overcoming a huge sufferance that troubles you, the lack of courage when it`s about doing the right thing, the lack of love or the crying for it… subjects that make ourselves human, subjects that are in each one of us and that makes us who we are and maybe throughout our music, we get recovered, healed or better, we discover ourselves for who we really are because with any doubt music heals the spirit, metal heals the heart.
And so Stormbreaker was born and got the fantasy clothing as the second album from “The Book Of Scarlet” Trilogy which became without even knowing in advance, a journey, a process of getting our true self out there through this unique process of enjoying the combination between metal music and fantasy literature. The release album concerts will be true shows of spark in which we`ll use the amazing prop that will give you the goose bumps of the Scarlet world so join us, let`s make this 2020 tour into a sold out one, it will be definitely worth it!“.
Guitarist Mihai adds:-
“Stormbreaker continues the heavy metal statement we started with Hail To You and although “The Book Of Scarlet” trilogy takes these albums into a fantasy world of discovering Scarlet, I think we`ll all realize after listening that actually Scarlet is in each one of us. Stormbreaker comes rough, it comes straight forward, it comes in your face with the powerful rhythms, edgy guitar riffs, almost psychedelic guitar solos, hard crunchy bass lines, modulations and surprises at every step not giving you the time to get bored but to want more after every song, all of us exceeding even our own expectations. After I finished the production for Stormbreaker I was surprised of our evolution, I think it`s the best album Scarlet Aura had so far, I think it comes with the fresh sound and approach the heavy metal stage needs, I`m proud of how far we`ve got and I hope you`ll be too by coming to our shows and supporting the band. Can`t wait to see you out there!”
Dr. Tatyana Shubina, Managing Director of Silver City Records points out:-
“Eastern European countries and particularly Romania haven’t brought many metal bands on the international metal music radar, making with Scarlet Aura a beautiful exception also by their sparkling and full of energy fronted female singer, by their message full of light, by their powerful sound, unique guitar solos, song writing and the fantasy behind all this. Scarlet Aura in one word? Exceptional!”
The album was recorded in Bucharest at Silver City Studio and written, mixed, engineered and produced by Mihai Danciulescu, founder and guitar player of Scarlet Aura, with lyrics written by Aura Danciulescu. The album and the book will be released by Silver City Records, the band's own record label.
Accompanying the announcement of the release, Scarlet Aura will kick off a European wide tour in spring 2020 that will lead them through Germany, Switzerland, France, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, The Netherlands, Austria, Romania and Bulgaria.
