MNEMIC: New Album Title, Cover Artwork Unveiled

Danish modern metallers MNEMIC have set "Mnemesis" as the title of their fifth album, due later in the year via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded at Antfarm studios in Aabyhøj, Denmark with longtime producer Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, HIMSA, SICK OF IT ALL). The cover artwork was created by Metastazis (MORBID ANGEL, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, PARADISE LOST, ULVER) and can be seen below.

Commented guitarist Mircea Gabriel Eftemie: "We can say that the new record is done, completed and our mission is finally accomplished.

"Since the disruption and chaos within the band last year, and the acquirement of new members, I never thought we would make it this far. Today everything converged and we ascended from the depths of turmoil, catharsis and hard work everyone has put into this new record, which is entitled 'Mnemesis'. Yes, again we chose something no one can pronounce, just like our band mname.

"For the ones that are curious about our new opus, I can say it's more melodic than what we've done in the past, but at the same time more energetic and not so technical. We tried to incorporate the traditional MNEMIC-esque sound and universe into the compositions, as good as we could. At the same time, we tried to move forward, like everything else in life. All in all, it's more of an atmospheric and melodic record, at least for me."
