Augury

French Canadian death metal usually means something pretty intense, chaotic, and unusual, and Concealed, the debut album from Augury, fits that description pretty well, as theirs is a progressive, adventurous take on extreme music, with a variety of vocal styles, acoustic interludes (one can't help but think of Opeth at such times), twisted riffing, but also plenty of full-on death metal brutality. The inclusion of operatic female vocals is a bit incongruous, sometimes a welcome addition, other times an odd, mismatched distraction (that vocalist has since left the band, though various guests have filled the role in live situations -- as such, it's not clear whether such vocals will be pursued in the future). For a debut album from a young band, Concealed is impressive indeed.
