Old school metal veterans MEMORIAM released their new album Requiem For Mankind recently, which hit #20 in the German charts and #7 in the UK Rock Charts. A death metal victory! To celebrate the release of the album and chart success, the band has premiered an official lyric video for the title track ‘Requiem For Mankind’. Check it out on YouTube:

The band states:
“Lyrically it ties in with the burial as depicted on the artwork of the album itself. It could also be interpreted as a lament for the state of the world we are living in, we have left enough room in the lyrical content to draw your own conclusion! Musically it’s another headbanger ( we seem to have a lot of those on this album) with a nice heavy deep end rumble. It needed to be the title track! It has that old school feel, it’s organic, it’s out now and all you need to do is listen, absorb, and bang your head !
