When the Empire Falls is a Finnish Melodic Heavy/Power Metal band formed in 2005. Originally known as Empire Falls, changed name because there is an older band under that name in USA. Name was changed again from Empire Fails to When The Empire Falls because the previous name might be misleading for foreign fans. In 2008 they released their first self titled album under the new name on Gagagoodies/Poko Records.

  • Ah! Good question.. :o) .. I've just listened, just now, to my first song from this band (got a Finnish Metal Mania CD (with assorted artists) from my girlfriend), and wanted to check "their page", and this great question is the first thing I read.. Would be nice to read an answer from "a fan" to this.. :o) Great question = no bashing, just curiosity..
  • Just a humble question: What there is to like about this band? I listened to all of their myspace tracks and everything seemed ok. Production is good (although typically overproduced as it normally goes with these type of bands / finnish), the band can surely perform and singer sounds right for the job. Good so far, but what happened to the songwriting? There just doesn't seem to be anything unique on it, and nothing well copied eather. As if they're somehow struggling between power / heavy / gothenburg / us nu-metal and cannot master none of them. It just makes all the songs sound boring / skippable, even when they surely can perform. And 2,000+ listeners so far (mainly because of the vocalist perhaps?) seems weird. Of course i'm not a power/heavy manic, so i might be missing "the thing", but regardless of genres i can still appreciate good music. I just feel they lost it totally on the songwriting, but there's a good frame to start producing good music OF THEIR OWN in the future.
