After nearly 25 years upholding and reinvigorating thrash metal’s grimmest traditions for the delight of the international underground, in 2018 the Ugliest Band in the World will unleash their sixth full length, the semi-self-titled 'Aura Noire', on April 27! With no overdubs or embellishments, the album underscores the band’s potency as a power-trio and reinforces their primacy among thrash’s primal pantheon.
The record's first single titled "Dark Lung Of The Storm" is now available & premiering via:

"'Dark Lung of the Storm' is the opener on the album. The first sequence of riffs has this come-back vibe to it,though we haven’t come back, we’ve been here all the time. It’s the natural opener on the album." - Aggressor
With Aura Noire, a title which quite distinctly resembles their band name, Aura Noir churns through some of the most refreshing, yet nostalgic tracks of thrash metal ever to be heard. The album opens with probably one of the most retrospect of riffs, but suddenly somersaults you into the gloriously dissonant and immersive Aura Noir atmosphere. The soaring and burning shouts of Aggressor intensely glues the otherwise quite varied and playful guitar riffs and drums together, culminating into the essence of thrash that is Aura Noir!
