History

This keyboard-laden band hails from Grenoble in the south of France. The group was formed in 2001 and issued a demo in 2005 called Mysteries Of The Stars. The recording established the band’s scientific interest. The band signed with the French Pervade/Thundering Records for two albums. Heliopause was a follow-up to Resolution thematically. Heliopause contained a track sung in Japanese. The band donated the proceeds from a special acoustic song to Japan Relief in 2011.

Auspex is a soothsayer in Ancient Rome.

Reviews

AUSPEX - HELIOPAUSE - PERVADE  
Auspex is a French band with something of a playful sound. The band has departed the realms of metal and is a candidate for exclusion from these pages in the near future. Heliopause - translation: stopped light - is an avant-garde rock album best described as progressive, symphonic and popish. The female vocals are powerful and clear, the music well produced and synthesized around keyboards and melodies. The drum has a wonderful sound too, but is a backdrop to the keyboards and vocals. Barely of any interest to metal fans, Auspex’s present lies with fans of anime, fantasy, symphony and the pop world. The band touts Heliopause as a follow-up to its last album, Resolutio, with that track closing this album. There is also a Japanese song here likely proving the group’s anime influences. What of metal fans? They are as far away from Auspex as Japan is to France. - Ali “The Metallian”
