MEMORIAM United Kingdom



We are having a smasher for you! MEMORIAM. You do not know what that is? Just have a look at the line-up with Karl Willetts (BOLT HROWER), Frank Healy (BENEDICTION, SACRILEGE), Andy Whale (ex BOLT THROWER) and Scott Fairfax (ex LIFE DENIED, BENEDICTION). This just cannot be a bad bandll!  

And what is the production of these gentlemen like? Well, it will not be emo apparently. The correct answer is OLD SCHOOL DEATH METAL. Having heard the first music samples it seems to be a premium above-average quality! Even a bigger sensation could be the fact that the show at Obscene Extreme Festival 2016 will be their absolutely first live performance! Well, this is called an honour! We hope you will take part in the first show of this all-star death metal band. This will be plain hell!!!


Memoriam were formed in January 2016. The band has a substantial and proud Death Metal heritage comprising of: 

Karl Willetts - Bolt Thrower 
Frank Healy - Benediction, Sacrilege 
Andy Whale - Ex Bolt Thrower 
Scott Fairfax - Ex Life Denied, Benediction (live). 

Memoriam was primarily developed to fill the void that was left following the tragic death of Martin ‘Kiddie’ Kearns, the drummer from Bolt Thrower back in September 2015. Bolt Thrower subsequently placed all activity on hold for the foreseeable future which gave Karl Willetts an opportunity to develop a new project with friends that had expressed interest in forming a band for some time. 

Memoriam are an Old School Death Metal band and maintain the standards set by previous bands that the members have played with, focusing on the themes of death, loss and war. 

Initially Memoriam got together to play covers of songs that had influenced them throughout their careers within the Death Metal scene, however it soon became apparent that the new songs that they created were of a superior standard. 

Memoriam have a full album of material scheduled for recording during the spring of 2016 following this Memoriam intend to follow tradition by selecting appropriate festivals to play through the summer of 2016, this will be followed by club shows from autumn 2016 onward. 

2016 is the year of Memoriam, a celebration of life through Death Metal.  

Onward into battle…The war rages on…….
