      Messora 'The Door' Album Review By Allyson Kingsley


      The Door


      Release Date: October 4, 2019

      Album Review By Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

      Boston Rock Radio

      Sometimes you get an album that right off the bat has you saying "Holy shit, this is badass!"  Messora is described as a progressive metal creation from Montreal, Quebec, but they are far more than your normal vision of prog metal.

      The Door, their debut album, is more like a kaleidoscope of metal - a blending of various subgenres in the metal sphere. As you listen closely to each song you embark on a very unconventional and artistic journey that dips you in bits of black metal, thrash, power, doom and death metal. For me to say I loved the entire album is huge.

      What started as the solo project of Zach Dean (guitars/vocals) has blossomed into a musicianship that is simply phenomenal. Messora starts you off with "The Door," a chaotic structure of thunderous death and power metal underpinned by rabid vocal savagery. You get a softer and sobering break with instrumental "Tethered" which leads right into "The Veil." The song has a sonic devastation of riffs that are merciless and grievous as well as ravaging vocals.

      "The Falling Star" is my favorite, as it slashes you with a myriad monolith of riffs and profound stunning drumming. What also strikes me about this song, and the entire album actually, is a pristine and piercing production, which while being polished, it is also extremely vicious. I'm hearing the black metal influence on the riffs of the next song "The Pond" and it spins a sinister web, that if you're not cautious, you'll drown in its depths.

      "Untethered" is a bit of a strange addition, more melodic, mellow and we have the addition of female vocals from Zach's sister Maya, who also designed the cover artwork. Finally, we are led out by "The Tide" with its brutally cold lyrics that rings poetic to my dark soul:

      'A new door I see

      A floor of ice lies behind

      The water beneath is warm

      How cold I have been for so long

      This water is better

      This ocean I can cross

      My flesh lusts after freedom from cold

      Beyond the veil there must be peace.'


      Messora truly an exceptionally talented musicianship that is simply a heavy work of art.
