Free Stream of Mnemic’s entire new album, Passenger

“This is more of a resurrection album for the band.  The melodic became more melodic, and the brutal became more brutal as we succeeded in finding the complete MNEMIC sound.  We really took the time that we needed to write songs we could be happy with.  We didn’t just use the first or the best riff… we demo-ed [the songs], chopped them up, and put them back together.  [New singer] Guillaume really did a phenomenal job with vocals.  He was the missing piece of the puzzle and simply lifted us to the next level.  I hope this release finally puts MNEMIC on the map.  I don’t want us to just drown in the ocean of all other releases, bands, and labels that are out there in today’s metal.” - Mircea [guitar], Metal Edge Magazine
