The war rages on! Old school metal veterans MEMORIAM are set to unleash their second album, The Silent Vigil, on March 23rd, 2018 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Just a year after the release of their debut album For The Fallen, the band returns with an authentic, raw offering of old school death metal destruction. Today sees the release of the second single off the much anticipated second album – watch and listen to ‘Nothing Remains’, here:
The live footage was shot at Dark Easter Metal Meeting München and Asylum, Birmingham.
All other video work, concept and editing was done by Timm Sonnenschein.
The band states:
“‘Nothing Remains’ is about dementia and in particular about Karl’s mother’s struggle with this condition. The video is showing the experience of loss and dissolution brought about by the disease in the burning of old family portraits of Karl’s mother and family, parents of Memoriam members and of friends as well as random strangers. Similar to us all being of the same blood as expressed in the previously released ‘Bleed the Same’, we also all die and decay the same.”

2. Nothing Remains

4. The Silent Vigil
5. Bleed The Same
6. As Bridges Burn
7. The New Dark Ages
8. No Known Grave
9. Weaponised Fear
MEMORIAM commented on the track: “Bleed The Same is a response to the fear and hatred that exists in the world that we live in today. The lyrics are predominately about freedom, equality and justice. This is a theme that is explored throughout the new album The Silent Vigil. The lyrical content of the song is a comment on the the rise of nationalistic xenophobic ideologies that proliferate on a global scale right now.
The song was ironically inspired by a speech given by Donald Trump in his inauguration ceremony in 2017.”
