The band comments:
“Carnival of Creation must be one of the most epic songs we have ever written. The lyrical theme is about discovering the art, the music, literature and everything that requires creative thought process. How everything develops through history and how the styles vary in different cultures. It’s a rollercoaster of a song that dives within creative thinking, where everything is like this huge market square where you can come across with a plethora of creative ideas. We are really happy how the song turned out and it describes the album perfectly.”
MEMOIRA hails from Pori/Jyväskylä, Finland, playing symphonic/ gothic metal. Already released two albums world wide (Memoira 2009 through Nightmare records and Memories, Tragedies, Masquerades 2012 as a self-release) and after a four-year hiatus, the band is releasing their third album Carnival Of Creation through Inverse Records.
