The austrian band Jacobs Moor was founded 2010 by Richard Krenmaier, Johnny Sommerer and Rainer Lidauer.
Richard Krenmaier as the singer has performed all vocals on the band’s debutalbum „All That Starts…“. He is already well known by metalfans throughout Europe as the singer of the power metal band Stygma IV.
Likewise the other two founding members both have worked in the music business as professional musicians for a long time. With all those years of experiences it was only natural that „All That Starts“ was produced by the bandmembers themselves. Guitars, bass and cellos were recorded by Johnny Sommerer, and drummer Rainer Lidauer additionally mixed and mastered the whole album.
The dark and gloomy cover artwork as the visual eye-catcher eventually sums it all up.
Jacobs Moor stand out due to their unique and individual sound. They combine metal sub-genres such as Power, Thrash, Groove and Progressive Metal in their very own special way.
Hard and melodic at the same time with distinctive hooks and rousing riffs – Jacobs Moor definitely cannot be pigeonholed! Richard, Johnny and Rainer themselves simply and unpretentiously describe their style as pure Metal.
In autumn 2013 the live line-up was completed with Johannes Pichler and Rupert Träxler on guitars and Stephan Först on bass. The band produced their first video of the song „Faceless Man“ which was filmed and edited by Rene Huemer (www.renehuemer.com) who is also Jacobs Moor’s live-photographer.
After months of rehearsing the band played a highly acclaimed album-release-concert in upper austria and began building their fan community. The whole show was filmed, check out the first live video
