The M.E.M.O.R.Y. Lab: debut album to be released in SeptemberItaly's The M.E.M.O.R.Y. Lab will release its debut album on September 9 via the Canadian industrial/metal label D-Trash Records.
The M.E.M.O.R.Y. Lab (The Modern Expressing Machines Of Revolutionary Youth Laboratory) is the brainchild of the three-time Grammy-award-winning sound engineering guru Marc Urselli. Joining him in the project are Nicola "The Old Nick" Curri (Funeral Oration) and Fabrizio "Malfeitor Fabban" Giannese (Aborym, Funeral Oration).
Established in Italy 10 years ago, The M.E.M.O.R.Y. Lab's debut album sees an official CD release on D-Trash Records, with state-of-the-art remastering of the originals, to be packaged in a digipack style case. This eerie set of aggro-electro industrial trash-metal songs is influenced by bands such as Front Line Assembly, Skinny Puppy, The Young Gods, Das Ich, Ministry, Pantera, Christian Death, Fear Factory, Current 93 and various post-black metal bands.
The track listing is as follows:
01. Cambia (Change) (6:16)
02. A Bad Dream (The Wrong Dream) (3:20)
03. Divine Eating (5:29)
04. Mind Rape (Government's Business) (4:56) (mp3 download)
05. Another Nail Into The Cross (7:21)
06. My Little World (4:05)
07. To Go All The Way (4:08)
08. Mother's Womb (7:27)
Though the M.E.M.O.R.Y. Lab is now defunct, Urselli is now based in New York and enjoys a successful career as a recording engineer, producer, designer. He since won three Grammy Awards (work included a Les Paul tribute album featuring Sting, Joe Perry/Aerosmith, Eric Clapton) and worked with John Zorn, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed and many others. Nicola Curri lives in Italy and continues to focus on visual arts as a art-restorer, stage-set designer, painter and sculptor.
