THE EMPIRE SHALL FALL: 'Awaken' Performance Video Available

Video footage of Providence, Rhode Island's freshly-minted metallic hardcore powerhouse THE EMPIRE SHALL FALL performing the title track from its debut album, "Awaken", can be viewed below.

"Awaken" will be released on THE EMPIRE SHALL FALL guitarist Nick Sollecito's own Angle Side Side Records on November 17.

Featuring the vocal talents of ex-KILLSWITCH ENGAGE throat Jesse Leach, THE EMPIRE SHALL FALL's sound is rooted in metal/hardcore, citing luminaries AT THE GATES, MESHUGGAH, and EDGE OF SANITY as major inspirations. However, "Awaken" also draws heavily upon the band members' combined interests in jazz, punk, and experimental music to create a compelling blend of melody, brutality, and sheer determination that is impossible to pin down and sure to intrigue fans of REFUSED, AT THE DRIVE IN, DEFTONES, and BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME.

Fueled by political outrage and a never-ending search for truth, the band's message is as potent as their music, and serves as a call to arms for a lost generation. Advocating positivity, unity, and empowerment and taking cues from legendary rabble-rousers and free thinkers like Jello Biafra, Benjamin Franklin, Cynthia McKinney, and Ron Paul, THE EMPIRE SHALL FALL's passion for and dedication to their political causes forms the backbone of the band and sets them a head and shoulders apart from their peers.

01. Awaken
02. Lords of War
03. Voices Forming Weapons
04. Choir of Angels
05. We the People
