According to a recent press release: “Manora originated several years ago when guitarist Ivo Visser and keyboard player Arthur Stok started writing their own songs. 

After several lineup changes Manora found a steady lineup at the end of 2016, with Tijn Scholtze on drums, Tomasz Kisielewicz on bass and vocalist Mirte van der Ham. With this lineup, the whole process accelerated which led to the release of Manora’s first EP Dreamshapes, ready to unleash to the world on September 1st, 2017. On January 8, 2021, Manora released their first music video “Wired to Obey,” this is the first single of the upcoming album that is released on October 15, 2021. 

Manora is a symphonic metal band from the Netherlands. Their sound is characterized by clean vocals and catchy synth melodies, while still maintaining a metal foundation which is accounted for by B-tuned guitars and bass backed up by pounding drums. The band is a finalist for the 5th Annual Banger Music Awards in the following category: BEST ALBUM.”
