MEMORIAM – second single & lyric video “TOTAL WAR”

MEMORIAM230113

MEMORIAM need no introduction – they are living legends of Old School Death Metal and arguably the fastest and most creative band in the genre right now. MEMORIAM has built up their own loyal fan base over the past seven years and developed its own musical identity.
On the 3rd of February 2023, the new studio album RISE TO POWER will be released via Reaper Entertainment. 

Today it is time for the second single “Total War” of the highly expected new album. The song is available now on all major streaming platforms.
You can check out the lyric video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbiQc6yuHO8

Karl comments:
“TOTAL WAR.
This track features as the second track on the album “Rise To Power”.
Lyrically the track draws reference from what is happening in the world right now, specifically relating to the war in Ukraine.
It seems that after writing lyrics about “war” for the past 30 years that they seem more relevant now than they have ever been… 
Overall the track is a savage attack on the senses in line with the lyrical content. 
 
NOW THE WAR MACHINE IS FED…..”


The album will be available as a limited deluxe boxset, on colored vinyl and on CD! It can be pre-ordered here: http://www.reapermusic.de

Once more the production by Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR, AT THE GATES, AMORPHIS, etc.) at Parlour Studios is rounding out the terrific songwriting and top-notch recording which comes across as charmingly “down to earth” but wonderfully differentiated to give every detail on RISE TO POWER its deserved space.

From the earliest days of the band, Dan Seagrave (Benediction, Dismember, Hypocrisy, Suffocation etc) is a steady accompaniment delivering the visuals to their music. Having created the artwork for the first four MEMORIAM albums, he has also created the cover for RISE TO POWER.
