EMPIRE DROWNS, the new Danish metal/rock band featuring former members of WITHERING SURFACE, AURORA and DECORATE.DECORATE., has made three recently completed songs — “Crawl”, “Abundance” and “Sharpen My Teeth” — available for streaming on the group’s Facebook page. The tracks were recorded and produced by Pede at Earplug Studios and were mixed by Kristian Thomsen (OLIVER WEERS, SUPERCHARGER). The artwork was created by Karsten Sand (VOLBEAT, MIKE TRAMP).
Formed in Copenhagen by three musicians with backgrounds in darker sides of alternative rock and metal, EMPIRE DROWNS knows never to sacrifice song for stylistic statements. Embracing an addictive pop sensibility and crowned by roaring-yet-always melodic vocals, EMPIRE DROWNS delivers its own brand of unique, darkly shaded rock with an unmistakable metal edge. Fuelled by equal amounts of desperation and hope, EMPIRE DROWNS is a musical construction of almost gothic proportions.
