INFERNO (FIN), Tami Hintikka
“This is a real bomb of an album. It really kicks ass. Old school death metal doesn’t get better than this.”
SCREAM (N), Stig Odegaard
“MEMORIAM? Old school death metal the way it has to be done! No big surprises, but for sure, no bad surprises.”
ROCK HARD (F), Benjamin Baudelot
“Great comeback of the British death metal masters. An amazing old school record, BENEDICTION and BOLT THROWER fans will like it.”
ROCK HARD (I), Andrea Raffaldini
“BOLT THROWER with some new twists, it works as a whole as well as individually song by song. Well-balanced atmosphere/brutality.”

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 expressed 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.
