Fans of Profound Lore Records and Flenser Records already know the vast amount of incredible metal albumsÂ these two labels put out. Â Just to name a few for the uninformed, Pallbearer, Deafheaven, Leviathan, The Atlas Moth and Vaura.
First-run vinyl for these bands comes and goes quicker than most music blogs can even post about, but a handful of Vaura’s most recent album ‘The Missing’ are still available. Â The album was released in 2013, but didn’t get a vinyl release until quite a few months later.
VauraÂ make experimentalÂ and boundary-pushingÂ metal. Â Consider them a gateway drug into the vast cavern of metal and all its subgenres. Â If you don’t have a metal section on the vinyl shelf, give this a listen…and think fast about the wax. Â These won’t last very much longer.

The sophomore album from Brooklyn New Yorkâ€™s Vaura, The Missing, is finally available on vinyl from The Flenser. Vaura has perfected a cohesive sound out of a mixture of vastly different genres including, â€™80â€™s 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, Dysthymia), drummer Charlie Schmid, and avant-grade 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, Vauraâ€™s sound is more streamlined with atmospheric mid-80â€™s vocals mixed with a hypnotic rhythm section intersected with black metal blast beats, chorus-laden guitars, and synthy overtones.
The Missing was originally issued on CD by Profound Lore Records to great critical acclaim appearing on many year end lists. Vauraâ€™s debut album, Selenelion was released by New York's Weird Records in 2012.
