LAMORI – Debut New Music Video

Finnish metallers LAMORI are proud to announce that “Neo Noir” will be out on 31/01/2020 via Wormholedeath/Aural.

Band statement:
Neo Noir – The New Black. Finnish goth-masters LAMORI are back.
The reservoirs of darkness brings you their take on classic gothic metal mixed with dark wave, modern rock and everything in between. Bigger choruses, stronger melodies and bittersweet darkness all wrapped in a doomy package. The band worked close with both Mazzeo and Belotti all the way from pre-production to the final release. This time around we also put more time and effort on each instrument, especially the vocals.  We think this album is a beautiful mix of both old and new LAMORI.
