MEMORIAM release brand new song, “Surrounded By Death”

DESTRUCTION - Thrash Anthems II

Old school death metallers MEMORIAM are set to unleash their debut album, For The Fallen, on March 24th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band has released a lyric video for the song, “Surrounded By Death“, here.

Vocalist Karl Willetts states:
“The lyrics to this song work on many levels. initially it relates to the literal interpretation of death all around on the battlefield.

“The song was written when there was a lot of high profile celebrity deaths e.g. Lemmy Kilmister 28/12/2016, David Bowie 10/01/2017,  this was all over the media at the time when i was writing the lyrics to the song and had a major influence in the process. It seems that we all live in a world where we are all surrounded by death.

“Death itself is a taboo subject that we never really think about or discuss until it actually happens to someone we know and love, in this respect the song is a reference to Martin “Kiddie” Kearns and also to Frank’s dad who died not long after Martin

“It is in some way a tribute their lives along with all the other people we have known and respected that have now passed on.”

For The Fallen is available for pre-order in various formats from the Nuclear Blast web shop: http://nblast.de/MemoriamFTF

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.
