MEMORY GARDEN recently announced the addition of NECRODHALIA bassist Johan Fredrikson to the group's ranks. "Johan did a hell of a job at the Swordbrothers Festival in Germany [on December 22, 2007] and we have continued rehearsing with him after that," says the band.

MEMORY GARDEN filmed a couple of live shows in Sweden in May 2007 for a possible bonus DVD for "Carnage Carnival".

Simon previously stated about the upcoming album: "We are for the first time working with the Hungarian artist Hjules and he [is] just awesome. The artwork for this one will for sure be something out of the ordinary. Hjules has worked with artists like ANNIHILATOR, DESTRUCTION, GRAVE DIGGER, NIGHTINGALE etc. in the past."

"Carnage Carnival" track listing:

01. Carnage Carnival
02. The Bitter End
03. Nameless

MEMORY GARDEN in 2006 inked a deal with Vic Records for the release of "Carnage Carnival", and the re-release of the band's previous out-of-print albums, "Forever" and "Tides". "The re-releases will be upgraded with some extra material such as demo songs, rehearsal recordings, new recordings of never-before-released material and so on," the group wrote on its web site. "[It] will be something for the collection."

MEMORY GARDEN split with Metal Blade Records in early 2002. The group's last full-length CD was "Mirage", which came out in 2000.

Upcoming MEMORY GARDEN shows:

April 11 - Athens, Greece - Up the Hammers Festival
April 13 - Ioannina, Greece - Off The Record Club
