1st singles are promising!


I’ve been waiting to hear what this project would sound like, and Night 13 promises a very satisfying blend of the elements and craftsmanship that you’d expect from the principal folks involved. Looking forward to the full album release!
Edited 2/22/18: The Space Between is a wonderful journey of joyous magic and musicality that almost makes me believe in things long since left to childhood. The vocals and the instrumentation and the melodies, the twists and turns in the music—what a wonderful song. I have so much anticipation for the rest of this album, I can’t wait!



This album is lush and beautiful. The lyrics and music are magical. Hard to really describe properly. Congratulations to the three beautiful souls who came together to produce such a mystical piece of work!

This isn’t metal


In no way, shape, or form should this be classified as metal. What are you doing iTunes?????

About Auri

Finnish prog-folk trio Auri is the side project of Nightwish members Tuomas Holopainen and Troy Donockley, together with the former's wife, singer and violinist Johanna Kurkela. The trio had planned to record an album together as early as 2011, but had been unable to do so owing to their commitments to their other musical projects. In 2014, they worked together on Holopainen's solo debut, The Life and Times of Scrooge, but that album did not stray too far from the bombast of his day job. Finally, in 2017, during downtime from Nightwish, they managed to pursue their alternative sound. Naming their project Auri after a character from Patrick Rothfuss' popular fantasy novel series The Kingkiller Chronicle (which also inspired some of the lyrics), they set about recording their self-titled debut album at Peter Gabriel's Real World studios in Wiltshire, England. Released by Nuclear Blast in 2018, Auri was a subdued and atmospheric affair, heavily influenced by Donockley's Irish folk background and elements of world music, soundtracks, and prog rock. ~ John D.
