Old school metal veterans MEMORIAM are set to unleash their third album, Requiem For Mankind, on June 21st, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records. The band released a new single last week, entitled ‘Undefeated’, and this week they are premiering a lyric video for the track, alongside a trailer of vocalist Karl discussing the song. Watch and listen to ‘Undefeated’ here:

Watch Karl discuss the track in a new album trailer, here:

“Undefeated – this track is a fist pumping anthem. It is a statement of strength and empowerment. We all go through life and experience hardship and pain, but it is how you come through it that counts. It’s a song that reflects how we feel about what we have achieved in our lives…I think that is something that everyone can relate to. The lyrics are about being true to yourself and through adversity retaining integrity and staying strong. Remaining undefeated.” – Karl Willetts
