Sounds | Memorist, The Emperic


Misschien ben je nog niet bekend met het uit de UK afkomstige Memorist, maar daar komt dit jaar ongetwijfeld verandering in. Deze vrij nieuwe alternatieve metalband tekende onlangs bij Year Of The Rat Records en bracht vorige week de nieuwe single The Empiric uit, inclusief bijbehorende video dat debuteerde op het kanaal van Dreambound. The Empiric volgt de drie eerdere singles van de band op, Loss, Frustration en Love ,en laat een sterke groei horen in het geluid van Memorist. Een vette melodische track met de nodige heaviness, elektronische invloeden, sterke vocalen en een catchy tekst die het beluisteren waard is.


Meer singles voor dit jaar staan op de planning en ik ben er alvast heel benieuwd naar.

Layered in satisfying atmospheric textures and driving choruses, MEMORIST are experts in creating tension only to explode into a salvo of memorable melodies and lyrics to identify with. Influenced by the likes of Deftones, Northlane and Hans Zimmer, their lead single THE EMPIRIC is a calling card to the industrial, synthesiser-laced sound that they have strived to achieve since the roaring success of their initial three singles.


Having already garnered a wealth of recognition from fans, industry and contemporaries alike, MEMORIST have enjoyed the position of "Featured Artist of the Week" on Alex Baker's Fresh Blood show on Kerrang! Radio along with numerous plays of their three initial singles by the presenter, have featured on live streams from Tesseract's Dan Tompkins and Fit For a King's Ryan Kirby, placement on Spotify's "UK Metal" curated playlist, a total of over 1 million combined YouTube views across their only three music videos, and approximately 1.2 million streams on Spotify alone (with a regular monthly listenership of over 20,000 active fans).
