MORE LABEL RELATED NEWS...
------> We're pleased to announce the addition of two new creatures to our humble yet proud family:
CHALICE OF DOOM, a melodic Doom/Death band from Jordan joins our ranks for the release of their upcoming 2nd full-length CD, an album that will combine a diverse range of musical influences, featuring a few talented guest performances, in order to make this record a soul-touching experience and an adventurous journey into the mournful side of existence. Absolutely recommended for fans of such bands as My Dying Bride, Officium Triste, Mourning Beloveth, Draconian, Paradise Lost or Saturnus. Album title, tracklist and artwork to be revealed soon along with an album preview on YouTube. The release date has been set for June 2013. Stay tuned and go like the band's profile in the meanwhile: www.facebook.com/ChaliceOfDoom
UNCOFFINED, a morbid musical entity from the U.K. featuring current and past members of such acts as Winds Of Genocide, Morstice and Blessed Realm, that draw their influences from old school Death/Doom, traditional Doom Metal, nihilistic and misanthropic Sludge, old stinking graveyards that reek of death, old Hammer horror/low budget/zombie movies, the occult and clandestine satanic rituals. Their music is the aural equivalent of a dark haunting sinister figure lurking amongst the shadows and graves of an overgrown old graveyard that no one dares to enter at night. Or, as stated by the almighty Mike Abominator, "sounds like a more evil Winter getting fucked and killed by Paradise Lost demo era doing Trouble covers!". Their debut full-length, entitled "Ritual Death and Funeral Rites", has already been recorded and mixed by Bri Doom @ Studio 1 in 12 (Bradford, U.K.) and will be mastered by Javier Felez @ Moontower Studios (Barcelona, Spain). Artwork and layout will be handled by Ola Sjöberg (Macabre End/God Macabre). September 2013 has been set as the release date. In the meanwhile, you can listen to one of the songs (not mastered yet) at www.reverbnation.com/uncoffined

------> We're also pleased to announce that we'll be putting out the 2nd full-length CD from the U.S. über-Death/Doom machine SHADOW OF THE TORTURER. The album will be entitled "Dronestown" and will feature three torturing, bleak and massively crushing songs for an approximate running time of 55 minutes. Those that experienced "Marching Into Chaos", their previous album on Memento Mori, know what to expect from these doomsters. Artwork will be handled by the band's brand new drummer, Tim Call (also drummer for Aldebaran and owner of Parasitic Records). The release date has not been set yet.
------> The album title and cover art (handled by Nev Doesartforbands) for the upcoming debut full-length CD from the Finnish Death/Doom ensemble SOLOTHUS on Memento Mori have been revealed. "Summoned from the Void" will be mastered by Greg Chandler (Esoteric) at Priory Recording Studios (Canwell, U.K.) during the next few weeks and will be released in June 2013. You can check the cover art here: www.memento-mori.es/images/releases/Solothus_Cover.jpg
