English death metal group Memoriam, launched by former Bolt Thrower vocalist Karl Willetts and Benediction bassist Frank Healy, have entered the studio to record their fourth album, To The End.

Tracking will take place at Parlour Studios in Northamptonshire with producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, At The Gates) and the outing will tentatively arrive in March 2021.

"After working with Russ on our last album and the resulting magic he weaved for our sound it was a no brainer to continue our working relationship with him, he really is an essential cog of the Memoriam machine," says the band.

To The End will be the first Memoriam album to feature new drummer Spike T Smith, who replaces Andy Whale:

"Andy (Whale) has had to step down from the drum stool permanently due to a long term shoulder injury that is just not getting better whilst playing drums. He did not take the decision lightly and tried to carry on but it affected him so badly playing that he had no choice but to retire from playing for the foreseeable future. Bringing Spike into the fold reunites the rhythm section of Sacrilege. Frank and Spike have worked on and off together since the mid eighties so he fits in very well with Memoriam. The album will showcase his immense drumming skills and he brings in a whole new dynamic to the bands sound. We cannot wait for you to hear him on the finished album."
