Scarlet Aura is the female-fronted new age melodic metal band from Bucharest, Romania that got in the attention of the worldwide promoters and public as the rising metal star of the East with seductive, unique stage performances, sparkling appearance and bold music.
The band started its journey in 2014 inspired by the best rock music and musicians as Dio, Helloween or Iron Maiden and it impressed with their Melodic Rock side but also because of the Heavy Metal accents.
With the upcoming album, Scarlet Aura brings a heavy sound, darker and deeper lyrics and state-of-the-art production, which brands Scarlet Aura now as a New Age Melodic Metal band.
Releasing their debut album “The Rock Chick” (under the name AURA) on Universal Music Romania and winning the “The Black Sea Battle of the Bands” at the Kavarna Rock Fest in 2014 in Bulgaria made the band one of most exciting new acts from Romania.
Joining Tarja Turunen on her “The Shadow Shows Tour” in October 2016 with shows in Germany, Switzerland and Austria and releasing their second album “Falling Sky” at the same time made the band even more popular and recognized. In 2017 the band brought their first headlining, “The Beast Within Me” tour to Central East and West Europe and released their tribute album “Memories”, presenting and re-interpreting 11 classical Rock and Metal songs in their own unique style.
In Spring 2018 Scarlet Aura toured as an opening act for Rhapsody Reunion’s 20th Anniversary Farewell Tour in Europe with 24 dates across 13 countries. During September – October 2018, the band is set to appear as a special guest for ANGRA with 31 dates in North America, promoting their upcoming album “Hot’n’Heavy”.
With the new album, the band brings much more heavy sound, state-of-the-art production, and more dark and deeper lyrics about finding your true meaning and how to be yourself, how to dare to be different and have no fear as one never be alone through music, the right to fight for what you believe in and also for love, for friendship and music.
Band explains: “Hot’n’Heavy became a statement and unfolds our spirits as they grew and developed in the last 4 years. Alongside “The book of Scarlet” we are revealing to you true instruments that will get you to travel deep in our minds and hearts and discover us as artists, dreamers, lovers, haters, as humans but also by heart… By revealing these instruments to you, in the end, you`ll get to find yourself! So, we dare you to let yourselves go from the known reality and embrace the wild callings of your fantasy, our fantasy and become one, becoming a Scarlet! Hail To You!”
The album heavily draws from symphonic and power metal, have been inspired by the classical sound of Kreator, Whitesnake, Iron Maiden and Helloween, yet stays within unique sound and vision of Scarlet Aura.
