The war rages on! Old school metal veterans MEMORIAM are set to unleash their second album, The Silent Vigil, on March 23rd, 2018 via Nuclear Blast Records. Just a year after the release of their debut album For The Fallen, the band returns with an authentic, raw offering of old school Death Metal destruction.
The band hosted a listening session for The Silent Vigil at Nuclear Blast headquarters in Germany on January 13th. The event was filmed and can now be viewed over on YouTube. Watch as the band introduce the international press to their new album and what the press think, here:
The lyric Video of the first single, entitled ‘Bleed The Same’, can be seen here:
MEMORIAM stated about the song:
“Bleed The Same is a response to the fear and hatred that exists in the world that we live in today. The lyrics are predominately about freedom, equality and justice. This is a theme that is explored throughout the new album The Silent Vigil. The lyrical content of the song is a comment on the rise of nationalistic xenophobic ideologies that proliferate on a global scale right now. The song was ironically inspired by a speech given by Donald Trump in his inauguration ceremony in 2017.”
The album’s formidable artwork was created once again by Dan Seagrave (BENEDICTION, DISMEMBER, HYPOCRISY, SUFFOCATION).
