Maryland-based death/black metallers AURORA BOREALIS recently entered Nightsky Studios to begin recording their sixth album, "Timeline: The Beginning And End Of Everything", for a tentative early 2011 release. The CD, which is being produced by the band's guitarist/vocalist Ron Vento, will mark the recording debut of drummer Mark Green. It will consist of nine tracks and two narratives. The album is a conceptual effort that starts from the beginning of all existence and continues through until the very end of universe and the eventual retraction and rebirth of it all.
Commented Vento: "The CD is what I consider to be a true chronological explanation of how everything was started and what will happen over the next 100 billion years and beyond.
"I try to touch on everything from the Big Bang, to the formation of planets and stars, life in the universe, evolution and creationism, eventual space colonization, the fabric of the universe itself, time travel, other dimensions and species trying to preserve their races. I also explain how I think it all will one day end.
"There are literally hundreds of hours wrapped up into this cd so far and we still have a good ways to go but the release should be out very early 2011.
"The CD will have a limited hard copy run with fairly elaborate package. However, we plan to also put up a link with a ZIP file of the entire package's artwork and layout as well as high-quality lossless audio files on the web site for people who cannot afford to buy the CD.
"I want anyone who wants the CD to have it.
"It's not about making money on this, it's about putting out a great CD and getting into the hands of people who want it."

AURORA BOREALIS' fourth album, "Relinquish", was released in 2006 on Nightsky Productions. The CD featured Tony Laureano (ANGELCORPSE, NILE, DIMMU BORGIR) on drums and had a running time of 37 minutes.
