Morre is a experimental rock 'n roll band heavily influenced by classic rock and eastern music. The band's style and sound can be described as combining two great songs of our time: "Paint it black" (Rolling Stones) and "Kashmir" (Led Zeppelin) with a fresh sound.

Biography

Consisting of Adrian L. Tonceanu aka “Fuser” (Vocals/Guitars), Igor Laze (Vocals/Guitars), James Rose aka “Just Jones” (Drums/Backup Vocals) and Dan Ayalon (Bass/Backup Vocals) Morre was born in early 2008 in Toronto Canada, by the common thirst of creating an original, dynamic yet accessible sound. This band has a unique story behind its upbringing. Traveling through different parts of the world, each member endured hardships as artists, as well as the joys of meeting new characters throughout their journeys. These elements give the band endless topics and depth to their lyrical and musical content. Combining dark, mystical themes with camp-fire vibe, this band will trigger a wide range of emotions in their listeners. With a deeply rooted musical knowledge these four rockers managed to craft an elaborate yet easily digestible sound of their own, using auxiliary instruments, vintage organ and recording methods. Morre’s influences are so vast that it’s hard to place them in a category of recycled rock. Though they are a classic rock band, it’s almost like they found a fresh sound that was not explored. If one was to describe the band’s style, the closest ancestors would be “Paint it black” (Rolling Stones) and “Kashmir” (Led Zeppelin). The selling point of this band is that it doesn’t sound like any other band.
By performing at world famous venues throughout Ontario and Quebec (El Mocambo, Lee’s Palace, The Mod Club, La National), where Rolling Stones, SRV, Nirvana, Blondie, U2, Elvis Costello and other famous bands performed and recorded, Morre managed to catch the attention of various labels in the early stages of their existence as well as attracting audiences of all age groups. As a result the band got signed to USA based label “Melodic Revolution Records” in January of 2011.
With a powerful live delivery reinforced by conviction and strong dynamics, Morre keeps the audience in the palm of their hands. The band is very charismatic and treats their audience with class, respect, making everyone an ally. One of the many unique characteristics of the band is defined by a Queen-esque ability to all sing in harmony. The two distinct sounding singers/guitar players (Igor Laze and Fuser) give the band a panned stereo flavour that will make you bend back and forth between the left and right speakers of your stereo system. These two songwriters create music that is honest and it is delivered in the authenticity of their voices. Fuser’s smoky-lounge baritone (some of the influences: David Gilmour, Jim Morrison, David Bowie, David Gahan and etc.) and Igor’s raspy melodic tenor voice (some of the influences: Layne Staley, Eddie Vedder, Mike Patton and etc) complement each other, giving the band many options with a rare edge. Both Adrian and Igor are lead/rhythm guitar players with many common influences such as David Gilmour, Slash, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Keith Richards, Ritchie Blackmore and more.
Just Jones (Drums/Backup Vocals). Words such as “bombastic”, “aureate”, “thunderous”, have been invented to describe his powerhouse-like drumming! His Influences include some of the rock and heavy metal’s greatest drummers of all times (ie: John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, Bill Bruford of Yes and Genesis, Phil Rudd of AC/DC, Lars Ulrich of Metallica and Vinnie Paul of Pantera). These influences can only lead to raw, tight, powerful and creative playing styles that make Just Jones a highly respected and well-rounded musician.
Dan Ayalon (Bass/Backup Vocals) is the newest addition to the band. Dan really ties the whole group together seamlessly, fitting in like he was there from day one! His knowledge about sound and tone are just some of the many attributes he has acquired in his musical career. Dan’s background, aside from professional bass playing, includes sound engineering (live as well as studio) bringing Morre yet another asset. Some of his influences are: the legendary reggae bass players Robbie Shakespeare (Sly & Robbie) and Aston Barrett (Bob Marley & the Wailers)
as well as the rock and blues legends, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Tommy Shannon (S.R.Vaughan & Double Trouble), Phil Lesh (Grateful Dead) and more.
Their three records “…Out There” , “Contrast” and “Morphine” released in 2010, 2011 and 2012 are selling consistently throughout the world, gaining highly acclaimed reviews in North America, South America, Europe and Australia. The albums were featured on many radio shows throughout the above mentioned continents touching a wide demographic range. These albums established Morre as an original sounding band and carved a unique path that can be recognized from the first seconds of any of their songs.

Lyrics

The Moment

Written By: Morre

Gather round my friends
Let us undertake this moment
Sing this song with me
And release your mind, from all your worries

Feel, the sensation of hope
Feel, the vibration that shakes the ground

It's in your head, in the way you look
Between the lines of an open book
Don't try to hide it cause you'll find yourself giving in...

Place your feeble hearts
And forget what you acknowledge
Free your visions now
And regain your conscious courage

Feel, the elevation of your soul
Feel, the temptation to lose control

It's in your head, in the way you look
Between the lines of an open book
Don't try to hide it cause you'll find yourself giving in...
Paint this world your own!

SOLO

Every path you cross
There's one thing you should remember
There's no right or wrong
It's only what you choose

It's in your head, in the way you look
Between the lines of an open book
Don't try to hide it cause you'll find yourself giving in...
Don't give in!

Brand New Tide

Written By: Morre

Let’s go!

I can't deny it
When I'm awake I'm haunted by desires
And I seem to like it
When I'm on the edge down to the wire

Searching for wonders around me
I'm restless once again
No one can ground or outrun me (just try it)
So here I come, with a brand new tide

I'm having visions
And trying to blend them with reality
And every made decision
Holds the dice of my destiny

Searching for wonders around me
I'm restless once again
No one can ground or outrun me (just try me)
So here I come, with a brand new tide

Over and over I keep coming back
Running in circles that can't stay intact
Sober illusions are rushing my heart
Bringing me back to a start
Set me off!

Searching for wonders around me
I'm restless once again
No one can ground or outrun me (you know it)
So here I come, with a brand new tide
With a brand new tide
Don’t try and stop me

I wonder what’s out there for me

In My Vein

Written By: Morre

It’s been a while
Blood's still in my vein
You were happier back when
Our eyes have seen the same
Oh in my vein, it goes to show that

I, look to the sky
With no intentions
How did I get so high?
I, looked in your eyes
I saw deception
Don’t put this life on trial

That’s all you know

It’s been some time
Now blood is on your hands
I’m still here right now, you know
But I’m just not the same, oh

There was a time
When we fought the waves
It’s seems like a long time ago
Now we drown ourselves
To forget what flows in these veins

I, look to the sky
With no intentions
How did I get so high?
I, looked in your eyes
I saw deception
Don’t my life on trial

That’s all you you’ve shown

Never, never forget!

Why would you look and try to find
a ghost trapped in the past?
How would you feel if our blood could drip with words
that never last?

I, look to the sky
With no intentions
How did I get so high?
I, looked in your eyes
I saw deception
Don’t my life on trial

In my vein
In my vein

Lady of Lust

Written By: Morre

There she sits alone
Queen of her throne
Her hair is darker than my soul

She’s a devil in disguise
But the fire in her eyes
Is enough to twist my world around

Who is this woman I can’t trust?
And how can I make her mine?
Who is this lady full of lust?
I can’t clear the dust from my eyes

She’s waiting in her place
But through the mist and haze
I can’t find my way to her

Constricted by her smile
She keeps me paralyzed
Like sweet venom in my blood

Who is this woman I can’t trust?
And how can I make her mine?
Who is this lady full of lust?
I can’t clear the dust from my eyes

Taken by the storm
I couldn’t stay calm
As time stood still…

Who is this woman I can’t trust?
I’m gonna make her mine
Who is this lady full of lust?
I can’t clear the dust from my eyes

I can’t let go
I can’t let go
I want her so

Winding Roads

Written By: Morre

Lost touch with what was mine
We are forever wandering souls
Lost touch with what was mine
We are forever winding roads
Your love…
The only real thing!

Winding roads
Winding roads

On winding roads there’s no horizons
(Open your eyes)
Lucid dreams and fantasizing
What could have been…

Let me know you inside out
To cure your love
Let me know you inside out
To cure your pain

Lost touch with what was mine
We are forever wandering souls
Lost touch with what was mine
We are forever winding roads
Your love…
The only real thing!

Winding roads
Winding roads

On winding roads we take our chances
(Forever more)
Mesmerized by your love’s nuances

Let me know you inside out
To cure your love
Let me know you inside out
To cure your pain

Forever winding!

Let me know you inside out
To cure your love, your love!
Let me know you inside out
To cure your pain

Lost touch with what was mine (what was mine)
We are forever wandering souls (wandering souls)
Lost touch with what was mine (what was mine)
We are forever winding roads (winding roads)
Your love…
The only real thing!
