NEWS: Memoriam set to release 'The Hellfire Demos II' EP and announce début album title

FOLLOWING signing with Nuclear Blast Memoriam have announced their new album will be entitled 'For The Fallen' and are set to release an EP of demo tracks.

The EP,called ‘The Hellfire Demos II’, is out on January 20th, will contain two demo versions of new tracks from this old school death metal machine - taking the same line as Bolt Thrower and Benediction

Memoriam was primarily developed to fill the void that was left following the tragic death of Martin ‘Kiddie’ Kearns, the drummer from Bolt Thrower, back in September 2015.

Bolt Thrower subsequently placed all activity on hold for the foreseeable future, which gave Karl Willetts an opportunity to develop a new project with friends that had been expressing interest in forming a band for some time.

Memoriam are an old-school death metal band, maintaining the high standards set by their previous bands, focusing on the themes of death, loss and war.

Initially the band members got together to play covers of songs that had influenced them throughout their careers within the death metal scene, however it soon became apparent that the new songs that they created were of a superior standard. The band has a full album of material scheduled for recording during the spring of 2017, titled ‘For The Fallen’.
