Loitered Lens: Inmoria [Pics]

Inmoria bring a new level of power and confidence to power metal

It's all in the wrist and the jaw. There is a metal tendon that joins both appendages (and in true metal the jaw is not only sentient but pretensile) and this where the Inmoria dwarves get their power. 

The band was started in 2008 by former Tad Morose drummer Dan Eriksson who; "sat down and started to come up with a name for the band. He is a great fan of Lord Of The Rings and he started to analyze the movies. Then, when he heard the actors talking about the dwarfs mine “Moria” he knew that that would be a perfect name. And he then added “In” and the circle was complete. The atmospheres in the mines in the movies are so dark and brooding and that is a reflection of Inmorias music." (Official Bio).

None of the members of this band are much over five feet tall and the singer and guitarist are both under 4 and half feet, standard. Watching them performing was amazing, each note finessed by tiny greedy fingers to perfection, the tone went ever on and on… and then they pulled out 'Balrog'.

A demon of shadow and flame, 'Balrog' was also a flame painted circus cannon and loading Drumli (son of Groin) into the barrel the set came to a climactic, if aptly tragic, end.
