Auvernia Interviews and Features

Below are our features and interviews with Auvernia.


Auvernia On Peter Steele, Cover Songs, And More

Today, Metalunderground.com released a twelve track tribute album to honor the memory of Gothic metal legend Peter Steele, who died last year. Each of the bands on the tribute represent some of the most promising and engaging aspects of the underground, and Argentina based act Auvernia is no exception.

Mixing in doses of black metal with epic and melodic power metal, Auvernia has released two unique additions to the musical world with the full-length albums "Towards Eternity" and "Afraid of Me."

Putting their own spin on Type O Negative's iconic style, the duo that composes Auvernia translated "I Don't Wanna Be Me" into a power metal opus that kicks off "All For None, None For All: A Tribute To Peter Steele." Below you can find an explanation from vocalist Fernando H. Varela about how the band chose to arrange the song and when he was first exposed to Type O Negative with "Bloody Kisses."

To get better acquainted with Auvernia, you can find a previous interview with the band here, or listen to music from the group's two albums at the official Auvernia MySpace page. More...
