How did I miss this?! This is the best stoner rock I've heard all year! It's not often that I'll buy an album after just listening to the first two minutes of the opening track. I can't pick a favourite track they're all so damn good! The riff is strong with this one, ladies and gentlemen.
Favorite track: Vagrant Blues.
This is SPARTANBURG !! South Carolina that is. fantastic slice of American blues/stoner there must be a Gibson SG and Orange amp at work here somewhere.... EPIC !!
Favorite track: The Yearning.
This dude can sing. Great mix of powerful frigging riffs, underlying chugging bass, and fantasy lyrics. At times I almost get an 80's metal vibe - LA scene. Thats a complement from me. Did I say that this dude can sing!!
As I've said in the past, Fall of an Empire manages to sound like so many great acts before them while maintaining a unique sound. Single after single, they never failed to impress, and with the release of their debut album, "Songs of Steel and Sorrow", they prove that they are a musical force to be reckoned with.
Favorite track: War Lord.
Heavy bloozy riffs, solid drumming and great vocals. Reminds me alot of another one of my favorite bands... Iceland's Brain Police. 2014 is already shaping up to be a magical year.
Favorite track: Becoming the Druid.
