Art Gates Records returns today on these putrid pages with this Finnish quartet called Whitemour! I think that "tormented" is the right adjective to describe Whitemour, whose story started in 2006 as a black metal band but they had so many troubles as well so many singers (even 3 in only 6 years!) that they broke up in 2012, managing to release only a demo, a single and two EPs. But, you know, the metalheads are really persistent people, so Jani Rohunen, an original founder of them and also guitarist (but he don't plays anymore in the band), thought well to give new life to Whitemour in 2014. And it seem that this persistence brought to good fruits since Whitemour, after many years of hard work, released their long-held debut album "The Devil Inherits the World" through the excellent Spanish label Art Gates Records. But Whitemour, mind you, aren't a black metal band anymore, even though...
