“Hello! this is our SUPERNOVA RADIO SHOW playlist on spotify. your music is on there. if you can like, follow, share, the team thanks you!”

“Exclusive sound at this Tuesday's Supernova Radio Show! Straight from New York, the ÆUR project, formed by Joaquin Velez and Kurt Borst, shows its grunge-influenced sound in the song “Lustral”, which you hear first hand this Tuesday, the 4th, at 6 pm, on Supernova Radio Show, on Clube do Rock 87.9 FM!”

“‘Lustral’ – ÆUR ‘Lustral’ is a song about vanity and popularity culture. ÆUR like to keep it simple and let their music do the talking”

“This hard rock band hails from New York and are bringing their own brand of music for your listening pleasure. Their release ‘Lustral’ is a great introduction to what this band has to offer.The track is all about vanity and popularity culture. This is a topic that seeps into everyone’s lives whether you notice it or not. This uneasy theme is handled in an easy manner making the band one to watch.‘Lustral’ hits you with driving guitars from the first note. The opening hooks you and the continuing driving melody keeps your attention. While the melody is driving, it is not aggressive and gently draws you through the track. The guitars in the song have a great rhythm to them without being overpowering.The vocals are a smooth upper layer to the track that drape over the melody. They are soft on the ears while engaging and make you want to continue listening. There is something captivating about the vocal performance that makes you want to listen to the track again and again.”

“Thanks for sharing your tune with us and for supporting our cause. Cool tune, the production is mint and I like the main guitar riff and the hardrock edge it has. The "yeah" bit in the chorus reminds me of Alice in Chains and there are definitely some distinct grunge elements throughout. I've added it to our Fresh Rock playlist.”

“Great Submission .It's truly lovely! Quite a heavy emotional piece.[Astraea]”

“Sounds dark, love it! Amazing work once again. [Astraea]”

"Cool song I added to my Rock 'n Roll isn't Dead PLAYLIST . " Rock 'n Roll is not dead if you want to suggest your band go here www.edgarallanpoets.com and follow @edgarallanpoets music here http://bit.ly/edgarallanpoetsmusic

“From their chilled out riffs to the Stone Temple Pilots style vocals ‘Lustral’ is a showcase of what the band can do. There’s an effortlessness to the track as a whole which is entirely endearing and the groove at the heart of the song pulls the listener’s attention towards it. The variation of the song is like something from a Jack White track but it always comes back to that main riff. A riff that after a couple of minutes feels like home.Pronouncing their name is the only hard thing about ÆUR as they’re one of the easiest bands to get into you’re likley to hear.”

“Reminds me of some nirvana.That's how I'm feeling with this through.Even in the the cover art is slightly Nirvana-ish . You know you remember the little baby going after the dollar bill in the pool and shit ? This is a little similar like I feel the vibe now it's a 4-minute track which is slightly long for what we do on these shows and stuff but I really really like this track alot. One thing I always notice and I don't know if Spotify kind of changes the quality or anything of that nature maybe a little bit but when you have I'm assuming that this was recorded with live with live instruments and live guitars & drums and all that stuff and his vocals they're not super drowned out but they are I would have liked to hear him real up close and personal in my headphones. I want to listen to the rest of them, they actually sent me the entire album to listen to and I'm definitely gonna check it out I don't know about you guys but I'm definitely gonna check it out. I hearted!”

“Sounds amazing. Love the intensity of the guitars and the mysterious dramatic vibe they created with the middle-eastern vibes. Great job! [ Invocation (Ancient Egyptian Melody)]”

“Ancient backing beats perfect for Egyptian themed parties and festivals. Unearthed to be the background music for the printable escape room party kit THE LOST MUMMY. On the official SPOTIFY Playlist for The Lost Mummy Play-At-Home Escape Room Experience”

"Bloom where you are planted There is magic in the unknowing. There is magic in being that seed that is waiting to sprout. Even though you may feel buried in darkness at first, it is how all creation begins. Keep trusting the process of becoming." A showcase track that exemplifies that guitars do not have to be distorted to sound heavy. Good news! I would like to share ÆUR - Invocation (Ancient Egyptian Melody) as part of an Instagram post.

“Great, pure music. Good instrumentals, excellent vocals - love the gritty style of this track. This song is quite solid and well written. Overall the main issue I have is I felt the chorus could have been just a tad bit more catchy and explosive. The current chorus is already good - I just wanted it to hit the next level to really stand out. But this is a very good song with quality vocals and instrumentals. My favourite part is the note at 1:27 "she gave him a (bow?)". The usual choice of note during the word "bow" was quite excellent.”

“Cool song! Singer reminds me of Chester Bennington a little. - Regarding vocals on LUSTRAL”

“On their work,I took some freedom, I studied and explored it till I found something that for me was convincing pianistically and musically. Sometimes I followed your piano demo, sometimes the original recording with guitar, other times I gave my version of a specific section. Also I cut some parts or replaced with sometimes slightly different. There's a reason for each decision I took. Also I've found useful to use the technic of overdubbing, in fact in some points it's like two pianos playing together, it was technically impossible to render some passages otherwise and I felt I needed it to give that idea of power and, desired, sense of chaos. [Astraea]”

“Off to a good start! “Deep in The Mine” is an acoustic rock instrumental with world music flavors. As the track progresses, the guys do a good job in increasing the sense of urgency and intensity with every additional part that gets added,..."”
