Empyre perform intense, atmospheric rock, with a dark and introspective edge to their writing. In the words of BBC Introducing their music ranges from “Triumphant, chest beating rock” to more subtle but just as arresting numbers inviting you to do the deepest of soul searching. This is a gritty, lyrically engaging and profound style of rock music you have not heard before.
Having carved out a vibrant online presence, a strong fan base, an intense sound, coupled with a live show that has fans transfixed with their ferocious musicianship and a captivating lead vocal, Empyre are clearly on an near vertical upwards trajectory.
Henrik from the band says “Our sound isn’t made to emulate any of our influences but what we write crosses the borders between genres of the rock bands we most admire, such as the grungy sound of Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots, the more blues driven rock of Guns N’ Roses and Aerosmith and others like Foo Fighters and Kings of Leon. All of whom have a wide variety of songs from acoustic numbers and ballads to full-on classic rock. We want to play it all too”.
Passion, performance, heart and soul are what drives Empyre on, 4 guys from the Midlands, a place steeped in rock and metal history, once again putting it on the map, letting people know the shows not over.
A jam packed year ahead full of gigs, festival appearances, new releases and a brand new management team behind them Empyre are confident, energised and ready to rock the nation.
