Augury had the following to say about Illusive Golden Age
“We’re proud to present you Illusive Golden Age, our new album, which makes the connection musically and lyrically with Concealed and Fragmentary Evidence. It took us quite a long time to concretize so we’re eager to see people’s reaction to our new music. Illusive Golden Age is a poetic tale about the recurrence of downfall and a glance at some factors that bring down societies, influenced by lost civilizations and their enigmas.”

Hailing from Montreal, Canada, Augury began its journey in 2001 with an intent from the start to deliver an extreme dose of death-black-.progressive metal along with an intriguing/scientific and esoteric lyrical concept. In that period the band was born from the ashes of many local acts such as: Foreshadow, Kralizec (Patrick Loisel), Atheretic, Quo Vadis, (Dominic ”Forest” Lapointe), Spasme (Mathieu Marcotte), and Disembarkation, Neuraxis (Etienne Gallo) and Arianne Fleury.
With the 2004 album Concealed (Galy Records) and 2009’s ‘Fragmentary Evidence (Nuclear Blast Records), the band quickly drew attention from metal lovers and medias around the globe and toured several times in North America following their record deal with Nuclear Blast records in 2009. After touring most intensively in 2009-2010, the band since then played at the Heavy Mtl festival in 2013 and 2015 to name a few and mostly during that time devoted themselves to composition for their 3rd effort.
Newly signed to The Artisan Era, and with Antoine Baril (From Dying Suns, Contemplator) now behind the drum kit, Augury has come out with new ideas for Illusive Golden Age blended with influences from their two predecessors; Concealed and Fragmentary Evidence, following the same path of extreme pounding riffing mixed to the sci-fi/historical concept.
After being recorded at Humanoise Studio with Mathieu and Hemisphere Studio with Antoine, the new album is now in mixing process with Christian Donaldson (The Grid Studio) and is set for a worldwide release on Friday, March 30th 2018 through The Artisan Era!
