Aura Caelestis is a metal/progressive metal band from the United States (Texas) that was formed in 2001 when founders Douglas Whittenberg and Michael Lee Smith decided to record their own material. Doug and Michael have been playing together for over twenty years and have lives outside of music, but their desire to rock has never diminished. Their songs often reflect the nature of man, the emotions that are dealt with every day, and the power of the mind. Doug and Michael write, record, and produce all of their material from their respective studios in their homes.
Their debut album, "Aura Caelestis," was recorded in the years prior to 2010 and released in October, 2010.
Aura Caelestis is currently recording their follow-up album, "Aequinoctium," and will release it when it's ready.
