The Moor Reveals New Album "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.

The creative process for "Year Of The Hunger" began shortly after the bands independent release of the debut EP, with most songs being written in the summer/fall of 2011. The recording process then began at the beginning of 2012, with all recordings being finalized in March. After a short delay the mix was ready in the summer of 2012 with mastering sessions taking place at Fascination Street Studios by the world acclaimed Jens Bogren (James LaBrie, Devin Townsend, Opeth, Paradise Lost) in September 2012 and is set for release on November 16th.
