The official lyric video for "Onwards Into Battle", the new single from MEMORIAM, the Birmingham, United Kingdom-based death/grind metal band featuring Karl Willets (BOLT THROWER) on vocals, Frank Healy (BENEDICTION, CEREBRAL FIX) on bass, Scott Fairfax (CEREBRAL FIX) on guitar and Spike T Smith (SACRILEGE, CONFLICT, KILLING JOKE, THE DAMNED) on drums, can be seen below. The song is taken from MEMORIAM's fourth studio album, "To The End", which is due on March 26 via Reaper Entertainment.
Willetts states: "'Onwards Into Battle' is the opening track from the new album 'To The End'. A powerful introduction that sets the tone of the album and gives the listener a taste of what is to come. Lyrically, the track provides continuity from the previous album 'Requiem For Mankind' and is similar in many ways to the track 'Fixed Bayonets'. The lyrics focus on the start of battle 'Zero Hour' which is appropriate for the start of the album. Within the theme of 'War', the lyrics explore the brutality of trench warfare specifically. The war continues. Let battle commence."
Marking the beginning of a second trilogy of albums, "To The End" serves as something of a prologue to the first three MEMORIAM albums. Working backwards and narrating the life story of the leader whose demise was depicted in the first trilogy, the lyrics on the album may play out in a fictional realm, but they incorporate inspiration from real life. A central theme of war is coloured with political fulminations and everyday experiences that combine to create a cohesive and enthralling chronicle.
