The history of Aura Noir dates back to 1994, when the Norwegian Black Metal band was founded by Apollyon and Aggressor. Their latest offering "Deep Dreams of Hell" is a collection of previously released & unreleased material. The first ten tracks have been taken from "Deep Tracts of Hell", the following six tracks are from "Dreams Like Deserts" and the four last songs are rare, unreleased tracks.

The music is quite ordinary black metal with occasionally fortuitous riffs. It's basically a mixture of black metal and thrash metal. However, at times the material flows effortlessly with hard-hitting groove. Nonetheless, especially the guitar solos need improvement. Overall, the material on this album isn't special in any way.

Already from the beginning it comes apparent that the sounds on this album could be better. Occasionally the sounds are too boomy and the mix suffers from muddiness. In addition, the rhythm guitar tone is muffled. The recordings also contain some background distortion every now and then.

For fans of Aura Noir and the like, this collection might prove to be a real treat. However, listening before buying is definitely recommended if not obligatory.
