July 6, 2009, 9 years ago
Full album info, artwork, and tracklisting has been posted on Canadian industrial/metal label D-Trash Records' website detailing the debut album from Italy's THE M.E.M.O.R.Y. LAB, to be released September 9th.
The M.E.M.O.R.Y. Lab [The Modern Expressing Machines Of Revolutionary Youth Laboratory] are the 'then' brainchild of the 'now' 3-time Grammy award winning sound engineering guru Marc Urselli. Joining him in the ‘lab are Nicola "the Old Nick" Curri (FUNERAL ORATION) and Fabrizio "Malfeitor Fabban" Giannese (ABORYM, FUNERAL ORATION).
Established in Italy 10 years ago, their 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 tracklisting; 'Cambia (Change)', 'A Bad Dream (The Wrong Dream)', 'Divine Eating', 'Mind Rape (Government's Business)', 'Another Nail Into The Cross', 'My Little World', 'To Go All The Way', 'Mother's Womb'.
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 then won 3 Grammy Awards in 2005 (work included a LES PAUL tribute album featuring STING, JOE PERRY/AEROSMITH, ERIC CLAPTON) as well has having 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.
