Dead Empires

Dead Empires

“Dead Empires sound like what Cloudkicker could’ve been in an alternate universe in which Ben Sharp was influenced by doomy, stoney High on Fire riffs instead of atmospheric post rock and Meshuggah… with a few extra bong rips thrown in for good measure. The Hudson Valley, NY instrumental three-piece brings it hard on their latest offering Waiting in Waves, and this new, previously unreleased track offers a taste of what’s in store on their soon-to-be-released next effort.”

“Based in the Hudson Valley, which is in all reality our back yard (and front yard), it seems strange to only now have our eyes opened and ears blasted by a three piece instrumental band that both embraces and denounces genre tagging. With a range of styles, and a wealth of intelligent intensity, Waiting In Waves was ahead of its time.” -Sorrow Eternal Music Blog

While the band is instrumental, they choose not to label themselves as such- the sound is ever-evolving, and they’d prefer to put out music that is organic, natural, passionate- rather than stick to a particular genre. The band likes to combine a wide range of influences to produce a sound that sways from epic, ethereal soundscapes to heavy post-rock riffs, rounded out with good old fashioned sludgy heaviness.
