As we wrap up another day full of news and premieres, we are pleased to team up with Auramancer for the premiere of their new music video for “Alike,” a song that showcase a fascinating nocturnal journey in the midst of riveting alt-rock.
Auramancer is a Belgian project from singer/songwriter Blaede, influenced by the grunge and alternative scene of the early ’90s. Clear references to bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, A Perfect Circle or Queens Of The Stone Age are blended with a modern sound and production.
On January 18th 2018, Auramancer released a new EP titled “The only way to fail…” featuring some of Blaede’s best work to date. Almost 18 years after taking his first steps in the scene, Blaede has found his sound, and is ready to take the world by storm!
Along with some childhood friends, Blaede formed the alternative rock band Auramancer in 2000, going on to record a 4-track demo before putting the band on hold in 2005.
In 2007, searching for a more aggressive yet groovy rock style, he formed the stoner rock band the1984, influenced by Alice in Chains, Down and Silverchair. Their first album, ‘Room 101’, was written, recorded and produced by Blaede at studio Sainte-Marthe in Paris. ‘Room 101’ was well received by critics and served as the catalyst for the1984’s success in playing shows and performing strongly in music competitions all over Belgium.
After creative differences in February 2013, Blaede left the1984 to go back to his roots. He revives the Auramancer persona and continues as a solo artist with the participation of several professional musicians. Auramancer’s first solo album, ‘Golconda’, released on October 1st, 2014 and was influenced by the grunge and alternative scene of the early ’90s.
