Memory Garden - '1349' (album stream)

Ο δίσκος των Memory Garden "1349"
Δισκογραφική επιστροφή μετά από οκτώ (και πλέον) χρόνια για τους (θεούς) Memory Garden. Ο διάδοχος του album "Doomain" (Απρίλιος 2013) και έκτος συνολικά "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Σουηδών power doom metallers φέρει τον τίτλο "1349" και μκυκλοφόρησε χθες...

Δελτίο τύπου: «The album is mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö and the artwork is created once again by the mighty Hjules (Destruction, Grave Digger, Annihilator, Stratovarius). Guest artists such as Niklas Stålvind (Wolf), Josefin Bäck (the original voice of "Marion" from the first demo in 1993!) and Göran "Freddy" Fredrikson (medieval instruments) contribute to this album, that will offer a sufficient dose of Swedish powerdoom-metal.

"1349" is a conceptual album and the storyline covers both fact and fiction, taking place during the pandemic years of the black plague. "Stefan and I were talking about how the new songs were coming together nicely, and he told me he really wanted the album to carry a concept", states drummer Tom Björn.

"We started contemplating different themes that could fit our music, and we both got hooked on the black plague. A very dark and tragic period of history... We drew some guidelines, or a few key words for the concept, and after that I developed the story incorporating a few facts with the fictive elements. It's not a linear timeline throughout the album, but a few songs are connected by the same character and happen in the correct order. Some things have to be read between the lines though".»
