About Band

Memento Nostri started as a project experimenting with various styles of melodic metal. After working with a number of different people, the band came up with the idea of writing a concept album based on the 1565 Great Siege of Malta. Enthralled by the courage of a few thousands against 'the mightiest Armada ever assembled' by the Ottoman Sultan, Suleiman the Magnificent, the band set feverishly to work on this original project. While keeping traditional metal roots but adding more ambience, Memento Nostri aspired to create a melodic, immaginative, lyrical and romantic folkloristic masterpiece. In August 2006 the band launched their first single to much critical acclaim. To Memento Nostri's extreme pleasure 'Decimation at the Gates - The Battle of Santa Margerita' was not only appreciated by the Metal community but the rich orchestrations appealed to a much wider audience. With the huge success of the launch of the mini cd entitled 'Pro Patria' in August 2010, the band were encouraged to continue working hard. The band was nominated for two awards at the Malta Music Awards 2010 and won one of them. It is difficult to label the band to one genre, as Memento Nostri vary diverse styles ; from brutal and heavy to orchestral sounds, alternating to folk and melodious notes, combined with moving and touching emotions and narrations which perfectly render an account of a live setting. Memento Nostri are now working on a full album that will complete the story of the Siege of Malta.
