Memoriam emerged from the ashes of Bolt Thrower, and they are throwing down classic, heavy riffage in the spirit of their former body. The band will continue adding to their legacy with the release of their sophomore album, The Silent Vigil, via Nuclear Blast Entertainment on March 23.
The band have now released a video for the album’s “Nothing Remains,” a track that engages frontman Karl Willet‘s mother’s battle with dementia. The band write:
“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.
The video intersperses live performance footage with photos burning, a reflection of the loss of memories. .It is powerful, to say the least. Watch it below, and buy Memoriam‘s The Silent Vigil here!
