Memory Garden Complete New Video

Guitarist Simon Johansson from Swedish doom metallers MEMORY GARDEN has issued the following update:

"Time flies and we feel it is time for some updates so you all know what is going on in Garden land! First off, the video shoot was amazing. We had two great nights together with Owe and all the guy's from Village Road film. It was a lot of hard work and our old bodies really got themselves a complete run-through. My god, the pain was unbelievable. Stefan (Berglund - vocals) had a rough time.... the video will probably speak for itself in his case. The video is currently being edited and will hopefully be done soon. I will look through my camera too see if we can get you some sneak peaks from the shooting."

"Now on to the new album! We a currently waiting for the last pieces of the Carnage Carnival cover. There are just a couple of small details that needs to be fixed and then it is finished. Release date will be set when we have all the pieces in our hands." More...
