Prendendo spunto per il nome da una canzone dei titani del doom, gli americani Trouble, gli svedesi Memory Garden ottengono fin dai loro esordi un buon seguito che li rende un gruppo "cult" del genere, grazie alla loro abilita' di sapere fondere nella loro musica sia riferimenti stilistici di icone come Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus e appunto gli stessi Trouble, sia di nuove band del tempo come i compatrioti Memento Mori. Dopo il loro primo demo (1993) ed il 7" in vinile "Bleesed are the Dead "(1994), ben presto raggiungono un accordo con l'etichetta indie locale Heathendoom per l'uscita dell'Ep" Forever "del 1995 e quindi per il sorprendentemente maturo, debut album, "Tides" dell'anno successivo. Entrambi registrati ai Fredman Studios con Fredrik Norman e bene accolti  dai fan e dalla stampa europea. Nel 1996 il chitarrista degli Abstract Algebra, Simon Johansson, si unisce alla band. Subito dopo l'uscita di "Tides", i Memory Garden firmano per la prestigiosa Metal Blade Records, registrando "Verdict of Posterity" (1998) agli XTC Studios con Mike Wead (King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Hexenhaus, Memento Mori,…) alla produzione. Quindi suonano live in Scandinavia ed in diversi festival estivi tra cui il ben noto Wacken Open Air in Germania nell'estate del 1999. I Memory Garden entrano poi nel proprio studio battezzato "Annoying Sound Factory" nel febbraio 2000 con Mike Wead ancora una volta in qualita' di produttore. Ne esce un capolavoro di 10 tracce doom-metal intitolato "Mirage". Con questo disco gli svedesi tornano alle loro radici e realizzano un album ancora più pesante e oscuro di "Verdict of Posterity". La band promuove "Mirage" suonando in spettacoli e festival in tutta Europa incluso un concerto allo Sweden Rock festival. Per il loro album successivo la band lavora ancora una volta con l'amico e produttore di lunga data Mike Wead: "Carnage Carnival" esce nel 2008 su Vic Records, seguito ancora da numerosi festival in tutta Europa; ci sono quindi cambiamenti nella line-up e la Vic Records ristampa in Cd nel 2009 il primo album, ormai introvabile, rimasterizzato da Mike Wead. Nel novembre 2012 registrano il nuovo album "Doomain" prodotto da Dan Swanö agli Unisoundnine e pubblicato nel 2013 ancora una volta sotto la bandiera della Metal Blade Records.
Taking their name from a classic song released by American doom titans Trouble, Sweden's Memory Garden took their doom history quite seriously, infusing their music with  references both to genre icons like Black Sabbath, Candlemass, Solitude Aeturnus, and Trouble, both to newer bands of the time like Swedish Memento Mori. After their first demo (1993) and the 7” vinyl “Bleesed are the Dead” (1994), it didn't take long to land a deal with local indie label Heathendoom, for the release of 1995's “Forever” Ep, and the following year's surprisingly mature “Tides” Cd. Both were recorded at Fredman Studios with Fredrik Norman and were very well received among fans and press in Europe.
In 1996 Abstract Algebra guitarist Simon Johansson joined the band. Soon after the release of "Tides", Memory Garden were contacted and signed by Metal Blade Records, recording "Verdict of Posterity" (1998) at XTC Studios together with Mike Wead (King Diamond, Mercyful Fate, Hexenhaus, Memento Mori,….) handling the production duties.
Memory Garden followed up their first Metal Blade release with shows around Scandinavia and summer festivals including the mighty Wacken Open Air in Germany during the summer of 1999. Memory Garden entered their own studio "Annoying Sound Factory" in February 2000 with Mike Wead once again in the producer’s chair. The result of their work was the ten-song masterpiece "Mirage". Memory Garden took their music back to their roots and made an even heavier and darker album than "Verdict of Posterity". The band supported the release of "Mirage" by playing shows and festivals across Europe, including a gig at the Sweden Rock festival. For their following album the band chose to work once again with long time friend and producer Mike Wead: "Carnage Carnival" was released in 2008 through Vic Records followed by numerous festivals around Europe. Around this time some changes in the line-up appeared and Vic Records also released on Cd re-issue (2009) of the long sold out first album "Tides" re-mastered by Mike Wead. In November 2012, new album “Doomain” came into mixing state, handled by the mighty Dan Swanö at Unisoundnine, released in 2013 once again under the Metal Blade Records flag.
