THE MOOR | Official Website

THE MOOR is a metal band/collective hailing from Italy, founded in 2010 by vocalist/guitarist Enrico Longhin and guitarist Davide Carraro.
The critically acclaimed, Lion Music-issued Year Of The Hunger dropped in 2012, followed by several live shows in the UK, including The Underworld.
2014 saw the release of their single 'The Castaway', featuring Soilwork's Bjorn Speed Strid on vocals.
The band delivered their independently sophomore studio long-player Jupiter's Immigrants (with the addition of guitarist Andrea Livieri) in 2018, where they defined their metal roots and defined their signature sound with producer Fredrik Nordström, who took care of the album mix and mastering. 


The album features important guests as Mikael Stanne from Dark Tranquillity and Niklas Isfeldt from Dream Evil. 


The Moor sound explores a mix of progressive metal, electronica, and melodic death metal influences.

‘Wrath of Vultures' single, released July 23rd 2021, marks the return of the band and explores their obscure side in terms of musical influences, both lyrically and musically. On October 1st, the band releases another song, ‘Emissaries’.

EMISSARIES - single

Released: October 3rd 2021


After the single "Wrath of Vultures" (released July 23rd), THE MOOR shakes the underground metal world in its foundations with the announcement of "Emissaries".
The song was composed during the first lockdown and then finalized in the latest months, mixing and mastering took place once again at Studio Fredman by acclaimed producer Fredrik Nordström (Architects, Obscura, In Flames, Soilwork...).
"Who are the Emissaries? They are nothing but the time."

"...So when "Emissaries" came across my feed, I was taken back by how powerful it is. It's a relentlessly dark tune, with a crisp production and ripping instrumentation. I especially love the minor/major changes during the guitar solos, a great exhibition of the band's songwriting craft and talent."

WRATH OF VULTURES - single

Released: July 23rd 2021


The song marks our return after the sophomore release 'Jupiter's Immigrants' and explores the obscure side of our musical influences, both lyrically and musically; I would say that the 'dark progressive metal' label that we gained through our latest release now blends with a more distinguished melodic death metal counterpart.
'Wrath of Vultures' encloses the anger and frustration we felt during the last year and the feeling of rolling up our sleeves, also when everything seems ruined and lost.

The song has been mixed and mastered at Studio Fredman by acclaimed producer Fredrik Nordström, and to complete the combo the artwork is once again a Niklas Sundin's 'Opera'.
