MEMORY GARDEN launch landing page for new album ‘Doomain’!
- February 19th, 2013 –
Swedish epic doom metallers MEMORY GARDEN have launched the first single and revealed the cover art for their new album Doomain, out April 16th via Metal Blade Records. Head over to www.metalblade.com/memorygarden to listen to The Evangelist! At the same address, fans can pre-order your copy of the album.
Doomain was recorded at Annoying Sound Factory and SolnaSound Recording by the band with a little assistance engineering from Mike Wead (KING DIAMOND) during the lead guitar sessions. The mix was done by Dan Swanö at Unisound.
Comments the band: “The recording of Doomain must be the most relaxed album session we’ve ever done. We recorded most of the album ourselves in our own studio and took the time we wanted and needed to get it done. Dan Swanö helped us getting the rig together and he provided us with the tools to do it and from there we did it ourselves. The lead guitar sessions were done at SolnaSound Recording by Simon & Mike Wead. When it all was done it was sent to Dan Swanö and Unisound for mix and mastering. The final album is amazing and we are so thrilled to get it out to all of you”
And about the album title: “We wanted a short and effective title to this album. It’s a little game of words referring to the style of music we play “Doom metal” and the actual word Domain. We see this album as a statement of what Memory Garden stands for music wise and this album is certainly down our alley, it’s in our Doomain.”
Doomain will be released the 12th/15th of April via Metal Blade Records in Europe on vinyl and as a Digi-CD and via all digital music outlets on April 16th in North America.
