Swedish epic doom metallers MEMORY GARDEN has finished the recordings for their upcoming fifth album Doomain! The album was recorded at Annoying Sound Factory and SolnaSound Recording by the band with a little engineering assistance from Mike Wead (King Diamond) during the lead guitar sessions. The mix was done by Dan Swanö at Unisound.
Memory Garden elaborates on the project: “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.”
The band comments on 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 on April 15th in North America via all digital music retailers.
Memory Garden has just recently resigned to Metal Blade Records. Memory Garden was found in 1992 in Sweden and have since then released four albums, two of them under the flag of Metal Blade Records (Verdict Of Posterity in 1998 and Mirage in 2000).
Excellent guitar harmonies and the classic clean vocals of Stefan Berglund are the outstanding trademarks of this highly talented outfit.
