Minora was formed in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2008 and consists of singer Tommie Zetterlund, guitarists Kenny Jakobsson and Claudio Oyarzo, bassist Djilali Benarradj, keyboardist Fredrik Sandberg and drummer Andreas Condurso. They released their first album Imago in 2011 and the album was mastered by David Castillo (Opeth, Katatonia, Bloodbath). I had the chance to run in to the bassist Djilali Benarradj at a pub called 2112 (Owned by Peter Iwers and Björn Gelotte of In Flames) and he told me to check them out, which I did. They recently released their new E.P called Into The Ocean, which contains four tracks. Be sure to check out their new music video, link can be found down below!
Into The Ocean is the name of their new E.P and contains a track that shares the name of the E.P. The E.P and song continues in the same way as their earlier stuff - very melodical and nicely produced. I love when bands incorporate piano and synths in to their music and Minora really pulls it off well. The vocals are powerful and fit the vibe of the song really well. I’m in love with this song, really great. CHECK THEM OUT!
