Old-school death metal band Memoriam are currently working on the follow up to their highly acclaimed 2018 album The Silent Vigil. The band recently ensconced themselves at Parlour Studios in Kettering (UK) to kick off the recordings with renowned producer, Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, At The Gates, Amorphis etc).
The band states:
“So here we are on our second week of recording our third album at Parlour Studios with the infamous Russ Russell at the desk. Personally we think this is the album people wanted to hear from us when we set out with Memoriam, a big gritty production, aggressive vocals and music and a few curve-balls thrown in to keep the grey matter active! In hindsight it feels like the previous two albums were a preparation for this one. Our most satisfying work personally to date. We hope you feel the same once you get to hear it. Anyway, onwards with the recording”
The new album will be released in summer 2019. Stay tuned for more info.
Memoriam released their second studio album The Silent Vigil in early 2018 via Nuclear Blast – coming just one year after the release of their debut album For The Fallen. The band returned with an authentic, raw offering of old school death metal destruction. In comparison to its predecessor, The Silent Vigil focused more on the aggressive side of the band’s music. Having put a lot of blood, sweat and tears into developing their sound, the band skillfully crafted a monstrous tone that further enhanced their imposing warfare.
