Debut LP «Cruel Bastards» by EMPYRES!!!

Empyres - «Cruel Bastards»

Meet the debut LP from the American/Swedish duo EMPYRES!

EMPYRES, a brand new name in Dark Electro orbit. In this case, one can not call the duet a “novice”, since it consists of Justin Thiele (VISCERA DRIP) & Fredrik Croona (CYNICAL EXISTENCE, CROONA, ROTNCORE). They are quite experienced and famous guys for making a sonic resonance, agree?

After «The Immortals» single release, the guys are ready to present to an audience their full-length album called «Cruel Bastards» consisting of 10 tracks, backed up with 3 remixes by VISCERA DRIP, CYBERLICH, SUPPRESSOR. Among other things, you may find a bonus on the disc or at the digital version of LP.

The musical style advocated by Justin and Fredrik is filled with melodic electronic modules and skillfully combined interesting transitions between tempo, bass and motifs. Complicated lyrics and aggressive vocals make the tracks truly brutal, but in no case less danceable. On the contrary, catchy melodies and hard rhythm are made for playing this album in smoky and loud clubs.
