Memento Moricaratula-athanator-memento-mori-2017

Format: Digi CD

Release date: 12.10.2018

Producer by Jaime Ocampo & Athanator.

Length: 48:12

The highly-anticipated »Memento Mori« is ATHANATOR’s 10th studio album, the first since 2009’s critically-acclaimed, Shock-nominated »Architect of Disaster« and the first with Jaime Ocampo as producer after unexpected  Jose Uribe dead. The band – Kike Ramirez (bass), Jaime Ocampo (guitar, vocals), Eder Zapata (guitars) and Esteban Tobon (drums) recorded the most parts for the album’s new tracks –

They started recording »Memento Mori« in December 2015, and made the track ‘Die by Corruption’ available as a video in August 2016. The band and Date continued to record between January and mid-July 2017 at Athanator´s Studios in Medellin. For the album, ‘Femicide’ was completely re-recorded from the ground up, with the original composer man Fernando Escobar and special vocal guest: Edgar Roldan (Perseo original member).

»Memento Mori« also includes ‘How will the next die?,’ an unfinished song composed by Jaime Ocampo and Juan Fernando Escobar sessions written by both axemen. About the track, Hagala U wrote that it “…begins with an eerie guitar line before evolving into a full-on-doom (and classic ATHANATOR) riff onslaught…“ EDER put it this way: “When I hear it, I think ‘Jose.’ It sounds like a Jose´s song.”

The 11-track »Memento Mori« is, according to those who have heard it, a sonic assault of brutal, ominous, lightening-fast and heavy-as-hell music with lyrics that unmask what ATHANATOR knows best – the horror, the corruption and the societal turmoil that dominates our world.

“The new album sounds like ATHANATOR,“ said Jaime. “In the past, our fans have always known what to expect, this time they don’t. But we really like it, and I don’t think the fans are going to be disappointed.“

As is expected from ATHANATOR, the band will support the release of »Memento Mori« with extensive touring across the globe, beginning this year as headliner in many festivals and live shows
