Out today: BINARY CODE - Memento Mori

Memento Mori, the new album by Binary Code, is out today.

The album was inspired entirely by the suicide of founder/guitarist Jesse Zuretti's girlfriend and all sales will be donated to suicide prevention. 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." Memento Mori is a highly compelling example of a band successfully transforming itself into something new.

Listen and buy, here:

More info:

"On their first album in four years Binary Code have upped their melody and rhythm game. I recommend this one not only because of the great music but because, the band states '100% of proceeds will be donated to Suicide Prevention in honor of a loved one who inspired the new record.'"

–Metal Injection

"Some of their best, most inspired and mature work to date."


"Binary Code have been preparing for a whole new era of progressive music... The band’s sound has shifted over time, from a more technical death metal sound and into their current cinematic, heavy rock aesthetic. If you’re a fan of bands like Katatonia, Gojira, Devin Townsend, and composers like Hans Zimmer and Danny Elfman, Binary Code will definitely be up your alley."

–Gear Gods

"Undoubtedly the band’s strongest, most cohesive, and most captivating album."

–No Clean Singing

"This is an incredible album that takes their earlier tech death cues and gels with their more progressive, heavy rock stance of today. We’re calling it their finest moment and highly suggest supporting the band and this album."

–Nine Circles

"The ever evolving Binary Code is back... The album explores cinematic highs and lows with metallic punch and gut-punch emotion..."

–Scene Point Blank

"Moody atmosphere and majestic buildups. You may want to keep your eyes and ears open for a rather extraordinary cover of Mazzy Star’s ‘Fade Into You.’ Don’t be around me if I’ve had a few beers and that jam comes on because I will cry like an anime character."

–Ghost Cult

"Binary Code have come quite a way from their debut album over a decade ago, transforming from a prototypical tech death group to an absorbing progressive sound on Memento Mori. This is the second album featuring vocalist Oded Weinstock, and his ability to switch between emotional singing and roaring screams without either dropping strength is impressive."
