Noire is a progressive black metal band from Winnipeg (Canada) founded by Andrew Lawes (vocals, guitar & piano) and Bob Fitzgerald (guitar). Since their first moment as a band, Noire embarked on a path to extoll the beauty of the lightless side of music.
Not afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves, Noire draws inspiration from bands such as Dissection, Opeth, Enslaved and Emperor, unleashing brooding twin guitar harmonies, thunderous drum work, intelligent bass lines and snarling vocals to create an atmosphere that is uniquely their own. Having opened for bands such as Absu, Noire has convinced audiences that they are serious about their music and well poised to become one of the most interesting bands to emerge from the scene.
The band entered the studio in January 2013 to record their first album Dark Reverence which was release worldwide on October 1st the same year through Deathbound Records.
Since, Noire played many shows in their hometown as well as other cities in Canada in support to the release of Dark Reverence.
