Death Metal is NOT DEAD!

Ready to make your ears bleed with the kind of “metal ear candy” that commands your senses scream in loathing love of death and malice?  Monster riffs, unrelenting grooviness and the atmosphere of oppression lingers throughout the entire album.   MemrioamRequiem for Mankind” takes OLD School to a team effort that is well worth more than the casual spin!

“Well, here we are with our third album, ‘Requiem For Mankind’. On our previous albums, we have experimented with different musical and vocal styles which have finally got us to the here and now with what we think is the definitive MEMORIAM album. It’s death metal. It’s all we know. It feels like the previous albums were a buildup to this one. We finally have all the right ingredients in one place. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it. Onwards!”.  Memoriam

Memoriam was assembled from the ashes following the unforseen and tragic death of Martin “Kiddie” Kearns, the drummer from Bolt Thrower. Bolt Thrower, much like any metal band was a family, thus taking a break was inevitable. Fast forward to Karl Willetts seizing the opporunity in front of him provided an outlet for himself and his friends.  What we as fans received was a death metal band focused on healing through music with themes focused on death, loss and the gruesomeness of war.

Third times a CHARM!

Russ Russell puts some signature death sugar on this album with each and every song echoing from the depths of the Parlour Studios with visceral angst!  “Shell Shock” is as  stripped down and nasty as it gets opening the album with a nice and easy slow metal burn leading the listener through the rest of the album.  Its a slow and steady build of carnage and chaos through the entire album.   “The Veteran“, as a track, stands a head above the rest and stays on repeat through my earbuds as it lays waste to the other tracks in mastery, however, it can be a hard tossup as the ninth track on the album, “Fixed Bayonets” keeps the lyrical and musical bleeding in my ears at a steady form of fist pumping.

I highly recommend you stop reading this shit and buy the album or check out these hard pricks ON TOUR NOW!!!!!
