Now available on vinyl! The Missing, the sophomore album from Vaura, draws from vastly different genres including ’80s goth, black metal and progressive rock.
Vaura is an all-star cast of Brooklyn avant-grade and metal musicians, featuring Joshua Strawn (Azar Swan) on vocals, Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia), drummer Charlie Schmid and cult superstar Toby Driver on bass (Secret Chiefs 3, Kayo Dot, Maudlin of the Well). Despite the often complex musicality of the members’ other projects, the group’s sound is cohesive and streamlined, with atmospheric vocals and a hypnotic rhythm section intersected by black metal blast-beats, chorus-laden guitars and synth overtones.
The Missing was originally issued on CD by Profound Lore Records to great critical acclaim, appearing on many year-end lists. Their debut album Selenelion was released by New York’s Wierd Records in 2012.
“The Missing is a daring, provocative album that mixes the best of ’80s goth-pop, musical mojo and clean vocals, and somehow makes it all work.” —Decibel
“[D]isarmingly catchy... Vaura’s stylistic composite is decisive and deliberate.” —Pitchfork
