The Skinny: Black Moor is a Halifax based heavy metal band composed of Eric Hanlin on guitar and lead vocals, Nick Jones on lead guitar, Sylvain Coderre on drums and Rob Nickerson on bass. These four started jamming together under the name Black Moor in late 2005, and since then have worked towards refining their sound and promoting the band.

Heavily influenced by the new wave of British heavy metal, 80’s thrash and some progressive rock, Black Moor plays melody driven metal that has often been likened to a cross between Iron Maiden and Megadeth. The boys released their long overdue first album entitled The Conquering on August 1st via Diminished Fifth Records.
