Memoriam Begins Work On New Album; Summer 2019 Release Expected

Old-school death metal band Memoriam are currently working on the follow up to their highly acclaimed 2018 album The Silent Vigil. The band recently ensconced themselves at Parlour Studios in Kettering (UK) to kick off the recordings with renowned producer, Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, At The Gates, Amorphis etc).

The band states:
“So here we are on our second week of recording our third album at Parlour Studios with the infamous Russ Russell at the desk. Personally we think this is the album people wanted to hear from us when we set out with Memoriam, a big gritty production, aggressive vocals and music and a few curve-balls thrown in to keep the grey matter active! In hindsight it feels like the previous two albums were a preparation for this one. Our most satisfying work personally to date. We hope you feel the same once you get to hear it. Anyway, onwards with the recording”

The new album will be released in summer 2019. Stay tuned for more info.

The Drowning Releases “Withered” EP Via Bandcamp

After much fan pressure over the years, The Drowning has finally made ultra-rare debut EP, “Withered,” available digitally through Bandcamp (you can also stream it below).

“Withered” was originally released back in 2005 and represents the earliest steps of the then fledgling band. Guitarist Mike Hitchen still looks back on the recordings with fondness and recognizes the important part the EP played in setting the band on the right road:

“The ‘Withered’ EP demo was the real beginning for the band. At that time it was just myself and James Moore and we were never really sure how it would turn out – we only put it together just to see if we could make something for ourselves! It was great fun recording it and it was the birth of The Drowning – and that sound can still be heard in our music today.”
