DEAD CONSPIRACY - Dead Conspiracy CD [MEMENTO-LXIII]
The sophomore full-length album from this cult U.S. band. Formed in 1986, Dead Conspiracy is to this day considered by many as a pioneer and influence to Death/Gore Metal bands worldwide. Originally released on vinyl, tape and digital in November 2016, "Dead Conspiracy" features 9 tracks of the bandīs trademark Thrash Metal-edged, Punk-infused, evil-minded, vicious and unadulterated savagery that should definitely appeal to fans of other primal and unrefined Death Metal acts that helped shape the genre in the 80īs, such as Nunslaughter, Necrophagia, Mantas/Death, Master, Incubus, Possessed, Deceased, Autopsy/Abscess, Terminal Death, Massacre, Exmortis, Repulsion, Slaughter, N.M.E... The vocals drip with devilish flare, the bass is clear and punchy, guitars are treble and sound like scythes, and drums sound like they were recorded on a low-budget in the best way. There are no tricks here, just raw skill and Metal. "Dead Conspiracy" is a powerful album, even after many repeated listens. It displays everything you need old school Death Metal to display: bone-crunching riffs, pounding breakdowns and speed delivered with anger, atmosphere and energy by a band thatīs riddled with acrimonious motivation and a burning passion for the genre. So dig up your favorite cadaver to sit with while you get kick your ears kicked in, for the deadliest have now returned!!!

FOSSOR - Emerging from the Abyss CD [MEMENTO-LXIV]
For the first time ever on CD format, here comes an official reissue of the obscure and solitary demo of the old Spanish band Fossor, originally released on tape back in 1994. Fossor first burst into the Spanish underground Death Metal scene back in August 1993, in the small northern town of Logroņo. It came into being as a spin-off from the first two Aposento line-ups, another legendary then Spanish band and local pioneers of the genre. Their music approach was logically rooted in the soundings of the genuine and still effervescing international Death Metal scene, taking their cues from the ancient Florida sound (Obituary, Massacre and most specifically "Leprosy" and "Spiritual Healing" era Death) and the European tradition of bands such as Benediction, Entombed, Asphyx, Grave and Gorefest. Despite the lack of a proper distribution and promotion, "Emerging from the Abyss" would end up gaining some recognition within the underground domestic ranks and also positive reviews in places remote as Asia and other European countries, including the insertion of the song "The Bastard Son of God" on the 1995 compilation "Sometimes... Death is Better II" put out by the Belgian label Shiver Records. A truly unmissable gem of the 90īs underground and happily exhumed at last, this very special reissue of "Emerging from the Abyss" was mastered by Dan Lowndes (of Cruciamentum fame) at his own Resonance Sound Studio in the U.K., and features brand new artwork by Raul Fuentes (a.k.a. Mortuus) as well as a fully detailed bio-interview conducted and compiled by David Bleak (Bleak īzine).

ATAVISMA (France) signed to Memento Mori!!!
In our endless quest to push and support underground acts that deliver the goods unaware of trends and hypes, weīre extremely excited to announce a new signing: ATAVISMA, from France.

The band was formed in late 2013 when G. (guitar) and L. (vocals) decided to put together a band devoted to old school Death Metal. Shortly after, C. (drums) and W. (bass) joined the band, and the quartetīs compositions progressively shifted towards a Death/Doom Metal approach with a penchant for lyrics thatīd mainly deal with the relationship between man and nature, ancient cultures and spirituality.

On the live front, ATAVISMA got the chance to hit the stage alongside bands such as Archgoat, Merrimack, Inferno, Ritualization, Ataraxie, Mercyless and Mourning Dawn, and as recently as February/March 2017, they embarked on their first French tour (The Chthonic Rituals) and supported Blood Incantation and Cruciamentum during their European tour.

While firmly planted in the filthier and darker side of the Death Metal of yore, ATAVISMA bring about a dreary, murky and riff-ridden concoction of all things dead, doomed and ill-fated, resulting in an über-heavy, venomous and slithering creature whose main influences cannot be denied but ultimately can rightfully be called their very own creation.

For fans of: Incantation, Cianide, Eternal Darkness, Grave, Disma, Blood Incantation, Moondark, Winter, Convulse, Indesinence, Cruciamentum, Funebre, Encoffination, Evoken, Spectral Voice...

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of their debut full-length album on July 23rd, 2018. Further details to follow in the coming months. Meanwhile, make sure to listen to their previous output (links below).

CARDIAC ARREST (U.S.A.) signed to Memento Mori!!!
Weīre extremely stoked to announce the addition of an old fave band of ours to the Memento Mori family: CARDIAC ARREST, from U.S.A.

Formed in the bowels of Chicago way back in 1997, CARDIAC ARREST should need no introduction to the ardent fans of rotting and blood-drenched Death Metal, for these grave-dwellers have been carving out aural nightmares of perishing and grime for lustrums now. Consisting of four individuals with an unearthly interest in all thatīs absurd, morbid, gruesome and unhealthy, the bandīs been consistently getting heavier and more vile with every album they spat out via previous labels such as Razorback Recordings and Ibex Moon Records, honoring timeless Death Metal of the most grinding and putrid ilk with genuineness and a no-nonsense approach, yet adding enough personality to be in a forever-rotting league of their very own.

For fans of: Autopsy, Grave, Death, Cianide, Impetigo, Master, Obituary, Repulsion, Benediction, Massacre...

Memento Mori will unleash the CD version of the bandīs 6th full-length album on April 23rd, 2018. Further details to follow in the coming months.

Discography:
"Heart Stopping Death Rot" EP (2004)
"Death ROTted" Promo (2005)
"Beast Among Many" EP (2006)
