BIOGRAPHY
Memfis was founded in the spring of 2003 in Kristinehamn, Sweden, by Mattias Engström (guitar and vocals), Johan Boqvist (guitar and vocals), Carl-Johan Lindblad (drums) and Christian Öhberg (bass).

Two demos were recorded in 2004 and resulted in top rated reviews and a record deal with Dental Records. The album ‘The Wind-Up’ consists of 11 stunning songs and were released in September 2006.

After the album was released Johan Boqvist decided to leave the band and were replaced by guitarist Daniel Grahn (The Kolony, ex-Brimstone) to fill his shoes.

Memfis has toured with bands like Entombed, The Haunted and Satyricon since the release and been honoured with the prize for “Newcomer of the year” by the Swedish radio show P4 Dist. The prize is a gig at Sweden Rock Festival 2007.

There was another line-up change at the end of 2006 when Christian Öhberg chose to leave Memfis. He was kind enough to continue until the band found their new bassplayer; Henrik Eriksson (Zkilleman) .

For those who just can’t get enough, there’s also a 7” vinyl single out on Futhermocker Records. So go ahead and order the single at www.futhermocker.dk

    Thank you promo bay for leading me to this band. This is exactly the music that my ears were wishing for half an hour ago.

    Ah, The Promo Bay... This is pretty sweet, but I could certainly do without the hardcore-ish shouting. Harsh vocals that aren't growls are fine, but just keep it metal, if that's what you're aiming for - and you seem to.

    New album needs more love! These guys have vast talent and there sound can work. They just need to step it up again on the 3rd release and tour with some prog/post/sludge metal bands.

    Not really seeing the "death metal" in this, but I've only listened to Vertigo and haven't heard any of their earlier stuff. Should I be getting on that immediately?

    I used a script to download the original mp3's from there myspace (yes the original files they uploaded) there in 192kbps. Vertigo is tagged as track 2 so that's all we know about the new album so far.. If anyone wants a .zip of the orginal mp3's just message me...
