MESSORA release Brutal and Fierce New Album “The Door”
Written by RockRageRadio on November 2, 2019
Formed as a solo recording project in 2016 in Montréal, Québec, Messora has become a band that obscures and challenges genres. To the band, the music comes as what feels best in the moment. To the fans, it is a kaleidoscope of sound that appears different at every glance and to every eye. When Zach Dean (guitars/vocals) decided to record his first song ‘The Door’ he approached Ben Bertrand (bass) to cover on the recording, Bertrand enjoyed the single so much he encouraged Dean to form a complete new band. Inspired, Dead agreed and Messora became a proper band. They enlisted Emine Topçu to do second guitar however she left shortly after the first show due to her return to university and was replaced by James Cabral.
In the summer of 2019, Cabral was replaced with Graham Murphy. Dean met drummer Joey Larivière while he was auditioning for Whispers In The Maze and when Messora was initiated, invited him to take up the sticks for this new endeavour. Messora has been described as Death Metal, Black Metal, Thrash Metal, Progressive Metal, Melodic Metal, and Doom Metal by fans and showgoers. The elements that make up the music may seem familiar to some, yet the whole remains a challenge to define. The band knows how to set themselves apart from others musically as well as aesthetically, with showmanship and presentation second only to musical performance during their live show. They demand attention with their presentation, but keep it with the strength of their performance and musicianship. Having shared the stage with bands such as Carach Angren, Mors Principium Est, and Wolfheart, Messora always delivers, visually, aesthetically and musically. 2019 is an exciting year for Messora, they played Vankleek Hill Farmfest andjust released their debut album “The Door”.
