From the ashes of such mammoths as Candlemass, Mercyful Fate, Hexenhaus, rose the behemoth known as Memento Mori. Mike Wead, Nikkey Argento, Marty Marteen, Snowy Shaw, and Messiah Marcolin allied to create some of the most powerfully enthralled sounds to be heard since the glory days. In 1993, "Rhymes of Lunacy" set a new standard for all to follow. With the release of "Life, Death, and Other Morbid Tales",in 1994, the band's sound was heightened to a new level with the addittion of Miguel Robaina on keys. The third release saw the departure of Snowy Shaw and Messiah Marcolin. Stefan Carlsson, the present voice of Pathos, stepped in (1995) to replace Messiah, but left shortly before "La Danse Macabre" was to be recorded. Kristian Andren, from Tad Morose, became the voice and Billy St. John was the new man on drums for the third release. The latest, "Signs of the Apocalypse", is a return to the trenches with the reappearance of Messiah Marcolin, Tom Bjorn from Memory Garden behind the skins, and the loss of Miguel Robaina.
