Swedish progressive metal band MEMFIS has issued the following update:"What's up in the MEMFIS camp? Maybe there's no one who gives a damn besides our friends, but since there hasn't been so much activity from us on the live front or the World Wide Web, I feel obligated to share some info about what we've been up to the past few months. We've recorded a new album! The (yet-untitled) follow-up to [2006's debut album] 'The Wind-Up' [was] brought to life at Bohus Sound Studios (ABBA, STATUS QUO, ESBJÖRN SVENSSON TRIO, MUSTASCH) in Kungälv, Sweden. Engineered and produced by Fredrik Reinedahl (BURST, GADGET, CROWPATH, OPETH and many more) and mastered by Dragan Tanaskovic. This beast, consisting of 12 tracks, shows on a matured and more developed sound. I'm personally very pleased with the outcome. Since we're through with our old label, due to reasons that will not be discussed here, it's not decided yet when or how it will be released. Time will tell!" MEMFIS' video for the song "The Wind-Up" can be viewed below. The track is the title cut of the band's debut CD, which entered the Swedish album chart at position No. 20. MEMFIS was founded in the spring 2003 in Kristinehamn, Sweden. Two demos were recorded in 2004 and resulted in top-rated reviews and a co-operation with Dental Records. In a 2006 interview, Swedish producer/multi-instrumentlist Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, BLOODBATH, PAN THY MONIUM) praised MEMFIS as a "really, really good band" that "must be checked out by fans of OPETH and similar."
