Memorial is Moonspell's seventh full-length album, released on April 24, 2006 by SPV. The album is available in two versions: a standard edition and a limited 'digipack' edition with the "Atlantic" bonus track.

On January 16, 2007, Memorial was certified gold by the Associação Fonográfica Portuguesa for selling over 10,000 copies in Portugal. This is the first time a Portuguese heavy metal group has received this award.[2]

Each of the limited versions and the standard edition end with a different song, but on every version the final track ends with a 6 minute wolfs-howling outro ("The Sleep of the Sea"), hence there are actually two official versions of "Best Forgotten".
