Memento Mori was inspired entirely by the suicide of founder/guitarist Jesse Zuretti's girlfriend and all sales will be donated to suicide prevention. While this album is rooted in one personal tragedy, the suicide prevention cause is as relevant now as ever, in light of current events: https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/08/health/coronavirus-deaths-of-despair/index.html
In Zuretti's words: "The album was written after my girlfriend at the time committed suicide. The album literally saved my life. I remember begging life for a sign or some guidance, and I woke up the next day and started writing music."
Over the past decade, Binary Code's sound has evolved from technical death metal into a heartbreaking and cinematic version of heavy rock. Zuretti states: "I think we've arrived at a place between Katatonia, Gojira, Devin Townsend, and composers like Hans Zimmer and Danny Elfman." MetalSucks reports: "They’ve moved away from their tech-death roots in favor of something more atmospheric, nuanced and dynamic, although no less expertly crafted." Memento Mori is a compelling example of a band successfully transforming itself into something new.
The album was mastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Converge). The album artwork was created by Eliran Kantor (Soulfly, Testament).
