MEMORAIN`s "Evolution" savage sound in perfect harmony!

MEMORAIN, the "super-group" formed in 1999 and founded by guitarist Ilias Papadakis, present us a new album entitled “Evolution” which is a 99% thrash metal album with speed and power elements. With twelve tracks of pure metal fire burning with thirsty of destruction, this new work is the perfect example why trash metal is perfect to headbang, extremely heavy power riffs, high technique and fast drumming, complex and very technical bass lines and to finish this masterpiece a aggressive voice that roars with rage and fits with perfect harmony in this savage sound, all the ingredients were mixed and the result is “Evolution” a most- listen album.

Papadakis composed, produced and recorded “Evolution” in 2011 but the new album also includes great names as guest musicians such as David Ellefson (MEGADETH), Tim “Ripper” Owens  (HAIL!, YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, BEYOND FEAR, ex-JUDAS PRIEST, ICED EARTH), Jeff Waters (ANNIHILATOR), Christian Wentz (FUTURES END), Marc Pattison (FUTURES END), Laura Christine (DREAMING DEAD)  and Carlos E. Perez (ex-C:REAL).

The presence of such giants in this metal formation took the album to an all new level, the experience, professionalism and unique style of each musician collides in a positive way and shapes this powerful work of art.

Memorain gives us 54 minutes of total ear pleasure till the last track with the true essence of thrash metal.
