Morre is a three piece Canadian rock act that return with first full length release. I first came to know of this band when a good friend and musician Phil Naro (DDRIVE) sent me their stunning 2010 debut ep "…Out There".
I loved the music of Morre so much so that in 2011 I released the bands follow up ep called "Contrast" another brilliant release. "Contrast" gathered many rave reviews by the media, and Morre set out for their first European tour to spread the word of their musical prowess in support of their new masterpiece.
After returning home from a very successful 3 month tour, Morre returned to the studio to record their first full length release and what a release it is. Adrian Tonceanu (vocals/guitars), Igor Lazenbnik (vocals/guitars), and Tyler Koch have finally found their way with "Morphine". The album contains 13 well crafted tracks to sooth even the mightiest of beasts and rock with the best of them.
The album opens up with the epic “House On The Hill” which sets the tone with its stones driven rhythm and eastern flair. Morre have worked hard on creating a signature sound that is 100% uniquely Morre while weaving in some nice tinges of influences like Led Zeppelin, Cream Jethro Tull and the Rolling Stones. Morre may be influenced by the past but it’s the fresh approach of their straight forward rock music that they deliver to listener that is their strength. I have never been great as a track by track reviewer but I can attest that every track on this release draws me in closer begging for Morre, pun intended.
I can honestly say Morphine is one of my favorite releases of 2012 and is without a doubt Morre’s best work to date. Morre will be hard pressed to top this release any time soon. I highly recommend Morphine to every rock n roll junkie and anyone willing to take a chance and give this album a spin or thirty three.
