Message from Warharan:
I first want to say that Luftwaffe Raid is neithe a political band nor a band with any message. It is based solely on history. As a fan of WW2, I have chosen to concentrate on Nazi Germany, because let's face it, it is a very interesting subject. This is shown in our society today with the numerous movies, books and video games on the subject. Unfortunately many of the facts we are presented with today are biased. I am not trying to give any opinion on this album but only to portray the atmosphere and darkness of the era. As chaotic and ominous World War 2 was, I try to portray that in the music.

With that aside, let me give a bit of information about this album. "Empire" is based on Nazi Germany during WW2. Think of it as a musical journey. I have added news clips, speeches, and sound FXs to heighten the listening experience. There are no real lyrics, mostly just random words and phrases. For the first time listening, I recommend playing this album from the beginning to the end in a dark room with headphones. Enjoy.

All music written and produced by Warharan during the Autumn & Winter months, 57 years after the end of WW2 in Europe.

All broadcasts researched and compiled by Warharan.

Tracks 8 & 14 and parts of tracks 1 & 11 are original sound FX / atmosphere tracks created by Warharan.

"Empire" was recorded, mixed, and mastered at Flugzeughangar and produced by Warharan.

All music is the copyright of Luftwaffe Raid.
