New album Ombra out 15th March via Inertial Music


Italian prog/death metallers The Moor have released 'Ombra', the second single and title track from their upcoming third full-length, due 15th March via Inertial Music. The track, sang in the band's native Italian language, follows initial single 'The Overlord Disease'. The stunning music video for 'Ombra' was produced by Damiano Affinito and the band.


'Ombra' embodies the essence of the album, exploring the emotional turmoil and inner struggles that accompany the creative process. The song's driving rhythm and soaring melodies perfectly capture the band's signature blend of aggression and beauty, while Enrico "Ukka" Longhin's heartfelt lyrics delve into the depths of human resilience and the power of unity in the face of adversity.


Frontman Enrico "Ukka" Longhin comments: "The title track of the album is always a special one. 'Ombra' is a culmination of everything we've worked on for this record, a fusion of our signature sound with some new twists and orchestral turns. It's a song that will take you on a journey through the darkness and light of our music, all in our native language.”


By nature, 'Ombra' suggests that the music's emotive power goes beyond language, ensuring that the essence and emotions conveyed can be appreciated and felt by all listeners, regardless of their proficiency in Italian. At Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Fredrik Nordström meticulously crafted a mix that amplifies the album's depth and raw emotion, promising an auditory experience that resonates with the album's themes.


Complementing the release is visionary artwork by Niklas Sundin, renowned for his ability to visually encapsulate the essence of musical voyages. As the album's due date approaches, exclusive pre-order bundles will be available at the Inertial Music website, offering fans an opportunity to delve deeper into The Moor's sonic labyrinth.
