“Hailing from upstate South Carolina, southern metal quartet Fall of an Empire recently released their full-length debut, Songs of Steel and Sorrow, an album that introduces the rock/metal world to a band stoked with equal portions of passion and potential. The band take the earthy sounds of bands like Down, Clutch, and The Sword and craft it to their own dimensions, adding soul and blues and plenty of hard-hitting riffs to match the group’s knack for boisterous refrains.”
"The year’s only just begun and it’s obvious that contrary to their namesake Empire is only just beginning to build. With more music on the horizon, there are many fans in the Upstate that are about to be inundated with all the soul-tastic, groove they can stomach. If you haven’t picked up Songs of Steel and Sorrow yet, you can get a digital copy via their Bandcamp page or pick up a physical copy at a show. If you’re a fan of Monster Magnet, Karma to Burn, and Black Sabbath you will fall in love with Fall of an Empire. So, what are you waiting for? Join the revolution and have a revelation."
