Matterhorn – Aura Noir (Exclusive Single Release!)

The Progspace proudly presents ‘Aura Noir’ the new single by Norwegian Avant-Garde progressive act Matterhorn. The song revolves around a dark aura (reflecting its title) and develops an interesting mix of raw instruments and electronic soundscapes with soft melodic vocals. Tommy S. Halseth‘s comments: “This is a very personal song for me. It was written in memory of  my father-in-law who lost the fight against cancer“.  About the mixing he mentions “I am very happy with the result of Aura Noir, Tor-Helge Skei (Manes) did a ​​perfect job with the mix.

Without much further ado, watch and listen the Aura Noir here:
