The war rages on! Old school metal veterans Memoriam are set to unleash their third album, Requiem For Mankind on June 21st via Nuclear Blast Records. Finally the band have revealed the lyric video for new killer new track “Shell Shock”.
On “Shell Shock” the band says “A new Memoriam song, a new approach, and as with all our albums a new sound for us to use. “Shell Shock ” is the first track we recorded for the “Requiem For Mankind” album. It is a bit of a Death Metal headbanger of a track! Subject wise it deals with the effects of being on the frontline amongst all the noise and chaos of a horrific war situation from an individual standpoint, and also that the soldier does not die from an enemy bullet! Sound wise it needed to sound a bit epic, we think we have achieved this on “Shellshock” and have used this as the blueprint sound throughout the album!”
