Memoriam For the Fallen. Carried Through the Dread.
So says vocalist Karl Willets, he of Bolt Thrower fame, of his new band’s positive modus operandi. Karl, along with his old scene pal, Benediction bassist Frank Healy, started Memoriam as a means to process their grief following the respective deaths of Bolt Thrower drummer Martin ‘Kiddie’ Kearns and Frank’s father. Both men wasted no time talking ex-Bolt Thrower drummer Andy Whale out of retirement for his first studio recording since 1994’s death metal classi. or Victory, and rounded out the lineup by recruiting a relatively unknown riffmaster, Scott Fairfax.
The crown jewel of MEMORIAM’s achievement is, of course, their debut album, "For the fallen". It has a massive yet underground sound - somewhere between yet beyond "Transcend the Rubicon" and "The IVth crusade". To find closure and peace of mind. To express the sadness and get it out in the open. The formation of MEMORIAM and the music we created was the vehicle for me. To get all that emotion laid down is the perfect way to make a permanent tribute to those we loved and lost. It is a happy ending for me as MEMORIAM gave me the outlet to grieve. make something positive from all the sadness. MEMORIAM was born from darkness, continues Willetts.
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. This also applies to the third and latest string to their bow "Requiem For Mankind.

Initially, we used Dan as we were all very impressed with the art that he has created for bands over the decades, and Scott in particular wanted to have an album cover designed by Dan Seagrave as part of the things he wanted to achieve with MEMORIAM
