Kaura Debut
TBJ reports: KAURA (pronounced ‘kay-aura') released their self-titled debut EP Tuesday on their own imprint, KAUM Records. The band has subtly blended the aggressive power of heavy, yet melodic rock with the haunting and ethereal sounds of ancient instruments to create an unforgettable and dynamic sound. 

Born from the vision of Malcolm Guess (vocals and instrumentation) and Benjamin Jones (Drums and instrumentation) to create a band that would subtly blend the aggressive power of hard, yet melodic rock with the haunting and ethereal sounds of ancient instruments. Coming from a rock background, the two had always sought to push the boundaries of the genre and create a sound that was both dramatic and distinctive. The key elements to bring their vision into focus were discovered when their travels took them to such far away and exotic places as Thailand, Bali and Java.
