Mur was founded ten years ago by musicians from very divergent backgrounds, gathered by the will to
produce music both extreme in energy and disruptive for the metal and hardcore scene. Its members
met with the idea of pushing musical boundaries of extreme metal while still keeping some deep
respect to its core codes.
The band worked until 2013 on a first release, their debut eponymous EP released in 2014. The EP is
warmly welcomed by the press and is featured on the Terrorizer UK’s sampler.
The following debut album « Brutalism » is the result of years of composition from four of the
original core members, Thomas Zanghellini (Comity, Mass Hysteria), Julien Granger (Today is the Day,
Glorior Belli), Alexandre Michaan, and Philippe Bettinelli who left since then for health
reasons. Joined by new vocalist Jay Moulin, Benjamin Gicquaud and Guillaume Bouhier on guitars,
Mur records in June 2018 the final stage of « Brutalism », an album with a hardcore organic
atmosphere tinted with rough and dynamic post-black metal and industrial influences.
Mur, recently joined by guitarist Benjamin Leclère, is now composed of six live performers. The band
signed with Les Acteurs de l'Ombre for the release of « Brutalism » in 2019 and is currently working
on new compositions.
