Empress - Premonition


This is a fascinating one. Sludgy variants of metal have taken all sorts of interesting twists and turns in recent years. In many ways this is due to the influence of bands like Elder evolving from Sleep worship into prog rock. Such is the case with the latest from Empress, Premonition. This is a 7 song album of progressive frills, tasteful execution and unique ideas. The fresh sonic assault and distinct notions that help to fuel this music is exciting. Their are few bands who really find a way to fuse heaviness with melody the way Empress do. 

The entire record is a fascinating offering. It's the kind of thing that you're going to get lost in. It's a record that will leave you scraping your jaw off the floor and embracing the deep magic of what the band is about. They have found a unique niche for themselves, and though it's taken a little bit to fully find their sound, what they are doing now is thrilling, powerful and the kind of thing that will leave you utterly stoked on what the band is about. Their distinct approach borders on the transcendent, an elegant fusion of classic rock melodies and crushingly heavy riffs. This is the sort of thing that leaves us scraping jaws off the ground. 

These tracks are really well constructed, tasteful and above all - exciting. Heavy music needs fresh new concepts like these, distinct approaches and devastating illuminations if it wants to really advance. So to have a band who write such excellent songs, who feast on good guitar tone and who execute with aplomb is really going to be a benefit as they gear up to take on the world and prove to all of us what this new wave of heavy music can be. You're going to get lost in some of these tracks - so just prepare yourself for the magic!

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
