Merankorii is eco-friendly

Having a band means having to engage with several activities, most of them not ecological. Doing CD releases, even being limited, adds to the problem: digital files are surely way more eco-friendly than CD's. If you consider a CD - the final product - as being "as bad as it gets", think twice: besides all the plastic, paper and ink there, there's also the wrappers, the printing machines, the energy consumption, the whole process of making the packaging...

Well, to make a long story short, Merankorii is inspired and devoted to Mother Nature. But if in the process of being what it is, Merankorii damages the environment, I also feel the need to work on the other face of the coin. Since I'm not into that field, it was decided that the best way to do so was to be a member of an environment orgazination. So, from now on, Merankorii is proud to be a member of Quercus, a Portuguse Association for the preservation of Mother Nature.

New free track - O Andaime

Hi there!

It's that time of the month again, when Merankorii gives away one more music for free. This time - as it couldn't be otherwise - the track comes from the upcoming album "A Viagem". The track is called "O Andaime", with lyrics inspired from the great Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa. The track can be played and downloaded from Noori Records' website. Also, check out this pictures from the new album:
