The sophomore album by the Canadian death/black/progressive metal outfit Augury! Mixed by Kataklysm’s J-F Dagenais, extremely diversified, elaborate, ambitious, and combining untamable fury with top-notch musicianship, “Fragmentary Evidence” proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Augury is one of the most interesting and innovative extreme metal acts out there! Definitely worth the attention of any ambitious metal fan! New edition re-released on Golden Disc, limited and numerated to 2000 copies.
The progressive death metal outfit Augury was formed in Montreal in the winter of 2001/2002 by guitarist Mathieu Marcotte after he parted ways with his previous band Spasm. By June 2002, he managed to recruit the lineup of Adrianne Fleury (soprano vocals), Dominic “Forest” Lapointe (bass), Patrick Loisel (vocals, guitar), and Mathieu Groulx, who was replaced in a few months by Étienne Gallo. In this lineup Augury recorded their debut album “Concealed” (2004), recorded by Yannick St-Amand and mixed by Jean-François Dagenais. Shortly after the album’s release, the band started working on its successor “Fragmentary Evidence”, though – owing to a period of instability in Augury’s ranks – it would not be released until 2009, after signing a deal with Nuclear Blast Records. Augury’s current lineup consists of Patrick Loisel, Mathieu Marcotte, Dominic Lapointe, and Étienne Gallo.
