The war rages on! The third album from old school metal veterans MEMORIAM, »Requiem For Mankind«, was releases on June 21st, 2019. The album entered the official German album charts on a fantastic #20.
While their debut album “For The Fallen” (2017) was heavy, depressing and marked by grief, the second work “The Silent Vigil” (2018) showed a relentlessly aggressive side. It was without question another great album, created by musicians who blindly understand their craft yet do not repeat themselves. This also applies to the third and latest string to their bow »Requiem For Mankind«.

To celebrate the release of the album, the band present a new lyric video for the title track
“Requiem For Mankind”. Check it out on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22cTn0u-WzQ
The band states:
“Lyrically it ties in with the burial as depicted on the artwork of the album itself. It could also be interpreted as a lament for the state of the world we are living in, we have left enough room in the lyrical content to draw your own conclusion! Musically it’s another headbanger ( we seem to have a lot of those on this album) with a nice heavy deep end rumble. It needed to be the title track! It has that old school feel, it’s organic, it’s out now and all you need to do is listen, absorb, and bang your head ! Enjoy.”
