Genre/Influences: Industrial, experimental.
Background/Info: Hailing from Baltimore (USA) Nahja Mora is the sonic brainchild of Josef Saint. Nahja Mora already self-released a few more productions.
Content: It’s not that easy to seize and define the sound of this project. It clearly feels like American-industrial music; a kind of crossover between different influences. That’s maybe why some passages are pretty cacophonous. Bombastic arrangements mixed with kicks and sound crashes and a few, fragmented vocal parts are the main essence of this work.
+ + + : The least I can say is that Nahja Mora has created a very own sound approach, which you can’t really compare to another artist. This is pure crossover and an experiment to create chemistry between numerous influences. I like the heavy bombast running through “Atramentous”. I also want to say a word about the cool digipak and artwork.
– – – : I like original productions, but this work is hard to label and that’s probably because of the lack of coherence; too much influences and cacophony are sometimes ruining the result!
Conclusion: Nahja Mora sounds a bit like the music from an alien; it can be labeled as ‘industrial’ and yet it’s something totally different.
Best songs: “Atramentous”, “Rabbit”.
