Wellmont Theater – Montclair, NJ
Formed in 2007 out of Northern NJ – Empire Fallen is a 5 piece modern rock band with a heavy edge. Each member brings their own style and method into every song they produce, bringing the rhythm of a down tuned guitar to a heavy drum groove together in one complex element of sound. Never misheard or mistaken, the lyrics spit into the microphone are the glue that binds each element together, creating a perfect combination of chaos and clarity.
You can hear different influences from each members background, including heavier, thrashier riffs mixed with fast solos and memorable technique which are nicely complimented by the chest pounding bass. Hip hop infused drum beats flow between mid-tempo and fast tempo that resonate through your ears. Empire Fallen is comprised of seasoned musicians: Bobby “Z” (vocals), Denis “Turk” Alas (guitar), Jay “Archie” (guitar), Rob Mott (bass) & Hansel Rajo (drums).
No strangers to local bars and well known venues, EF can be heard all over the Tri-State area bringing a ton of energy and presence you won’t soon forget. EF’s newest EP “A New Poison” is now available, on Google Play, Itunes, Spotify, and CDBaby.com.
