Since 1996, the project ASURA has polished a personal electronic universe sound, between trance psychedelic, Ambient and World music. Made by many influences, their music does not remain about it less one personal and considered creation, centered on the perpetual search of infinite spaces and multiple origins. Powered by both electronic machines and acoustic instruments, they have created a very distinctive sound which has contributed to making Asura one of the most recognizable bands of the World Ambient Trance genre. Monotonous melancholic lyrics, symphonic waves, fast and slow rhythms, heavy or throbbing, liturgical songs, ASURA introduces a certain solemn vision of the world. Recognized everywhere, little known in France, their titles "Code Eternity " and "Lost Eden" however had many dance at the time of large Trance raves all over the world. Vincent Villuis left the band to concentrate on his new project, Aes Dana, in 2001, and was replaced by Alex Ackerman.
The second album, Lost Eden, was out in 2003.
Since July 2005, after the departure of Christopher Maze and Alex Ackerman, ASURA became a solo project, composed by C. Farewell, co-founder of the project.
The third and newest album, Life?, was released on July 7, 2007, through Ultimae Records.
Life? marks its time as the return of the original Asura sound, with 10 strong tracks, composed by melodic echoes, Aramean tribal rhythms, ethereal duduks, hypnotic basslines, symphonic orchestrations, fusion of gentleness and strength blending into acid themes. The outcome is melancholic yet positive, as any renewal would be, a tangible passage, sort of a second life...
