Biography

Dead Empires is a three-piece heavy instrumental progressive metal band from the Hudson Valley, NY.

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.

Their new recently-completed new album “Waiting In Waves” was released November 6th 2012, and comes hot off the heels of their critically acclaimed MONUMENTS EP. The album was produced, recorded, and mastered by D. James Goodwin (Devo, Murder by Death, Thursday, Kaki King, Norah Jones) at The IkOsOn Studios in Woodstock, NY and features art by Revolution Dream Design (revolutiondream.com). The album will be available on 12” colored vinyl or digital download. PRE-ORDER “WAITING IN WAVES” NOW at deadempires.com.

The album was funded in part thanks to a successful kickstarter campaign, allowing for the vinyl deluxe edition to be produced. Your help was kindly appreciated!

The band’s original EP “MONUMENTS” was recorded by Will Riggs at Bigg Rigg Studios (myspace.com/biggriggstudios) and mastered by Bumblefoot (of Guns N’ Roses, bumblefoot.com). It is available as a free digital download or on deluxe limited-edition CD, hand-numbered and assembled by the band with exclusive art as well as a bonus track.
