Venice is best known for its gondolas, canals and architecture. Less well known is that the city has a blistering music environment, and the band The Moor is one of the more exciting bands from the city. The Moor were formed in the summer of 2009 by vocalist/guitarist Enrico Longhin and guitarist Davide Carraro (both ex-members of Bleed In Vain). Since their inception, The Moor has consistently incorporated sounds from prog rock, metal, death metal (for the guitars parts), seventies and alternative influences into their compositions making for a very compelling end product, yet all the time with a metal outlook.
The first album Year Of The Hunger came in 2013 with master producer Jens Bogren (Devin Townsend, Amon Amarth, Katatonia…). Both the choice of producer and the music spoke of a talented and ambitious band. After a sabbatical, in winter 2017 the band releases the new single with a brand new videoclip, the song is Lead The Differenc’, and it’s the first track extracted from Jupiter’s Immigrants the new album that recently was released.
Jupiter’s Immigrants features very special guest and endorsements from artists like Mikael Stanne (Dark Tranquillity) and Niklas Isfeldt (Dream Evil), while the band renewed the collaboration with the producer Fredrik Nordström for the mixing and mastering sessions.
Vocalist/guitarist Enrico Longhin comments on the new album, «Jupiter’s Immigrants came after a sabbatical period for the band, it is a completely new journey for the whole band. The album was mainly composed in just two months, I trashed all the rough ideas I had before that, then focused in what was resonating inside me in that period of my life. After all the songs and riffs were written, Andrea Livieri joined the band as new guitarist and among all the good feelings we always had, his contribution was really strong; almost every song in the album was rearranged and brought up to a next level».
Fans of Opeth, Mastodon, Dark Tranquillity, In Flames, Metallica and Faith No More would probably enjoy Jupiter’s Immigrants?
