UK death metal legends Memoriam have announced the released date for Rise To Power, their 5th album and the second album of their second trilogy!
Memoriam had this to say about working, once again, with the creative genius that is Mr Dan Seagrave.
“Dan has created the previous 4 album covers for us, so to keep the theme and continuity there would be no other choice. We love the work he creates and to be part of the creative process whilst the artwork is developing is a great experience. To see our basic ideas come to life through his mind and hands is amazing and he always delivers. This time around the cover has a majestic purple colour theme and features the “King” (the central character throughout all of the artwork that Dan has created for us) at his crowning ceremony where he ‘rises to power'”.
Maintaining themes of grief, loss and despair – along with social commentary reflecting recent events such as the war in Ukraine and past events such as the holocaust – the ever present subject of war is prevalent throughout the album.
Memoriam adds: “We consider Rise To Power our strongest album to date, as it includes a diverse range of songs building on what we have achieved with Memoriam over the past 7 years. Rise To Power is a true celebration of life through death metal.
