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.
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.
