Memoremains release music video for new single “Turn”

The latest single from Finnish group Memoremains, “Turn” is now available as of October 31st, 2018.

With a highlight on keyboard elements, it’s a hybrid of progressive metal with a touch of a synth pop feeling. It is heavy yet soothing; dark, yet dancy.

Mixing heavy symphonic metal, disco and pop elements, in the two years since their conception, Memoremains have created a recognizable sound that stands apart from similar artists in the genre. The solid balance between the vocals and instruments form a multilayered approach that enhances the various melodies and compliments the deeper complexities of the track.
