The Moor To Release New Video

Italian metallers The Moor are gearing up to release an official video for the song "Year of the Hunger" on December 17th, 2013. The clip will feature an appearance by Italian actor Guido Laurjni. The Moor's Enrico Longhin comments:

"We shot the video exactly one year after the release date of the album “Year of The Hunger”, and this video represents what everyone of us is forced to do everyday... It's a metaphor about life and struggle. The best thing was to work with such a great artist like Guido Laurjni, he acted in several famous Italian movies, theatres, musical and also TV commercials, he's a really eye-catching actor. On the other hand we had the pleasure to work with one of the best photographer around, Andrea Livieri, just to give you the best result we can afford, like The Moor does every time." More...

The Moor Reveals "Year Of The Hunger" Details

Italian act The Moor sees a full-length debut titled “Year Of The Hunger” this coming November 16th, 2012 via Lion Music. The artwork for the release can now be viewed below, and a sampler containing music from the album is available over here.

The 12 track "Year of the Hunger" is the follow-up to a five song self-titled EP, and vocalist/guitarist Enrico Longhin comments, "Year Of The Hunger is our first album, but we have been playing and releasing stuff with our old bands since 2000, that’s why there’s a maturity and complexity that is hard to find in other debut-releases."

On the band’s vision for the album Longhin adds, "The main goal was to keep the sound as natural as possible and to avoid anything that sounds fake or 'plastic,' we want to keep an emotional approach to the songs and let the listeners understand how we really play."

According to a press release, "Year Of The Hunger" is not a concept album lyrically, but there are two themes running through the words representing either a negative outlook (the noble truth of suffering), or a positive outlook (the path of liberation). This contrast gives light and shade to the lyrics helping aid the more personalised sound. More...
