CD Review: Rise Records Brings Us The New Album From Crown The Empire

From Dallas, TX comes the heavy metal band Crown The Empire with their Rise Records debut “The Fallout.” The new album was produced by Joey Sturgis (Of Mice & Men) and hit #1 on the Heatseekers chart. Crown The Empire are also one of the few band’s making Karrang! magazine’s list of 2013 Breakout Bands.

The album begins with “Oh, Catastrophe” which slowly builds up to the metal blast of “The Fallout.” The band rocks hard as the combined vocals of Andy Leo and David Escamilla give the songs that perfect combination of hard rock and thrash metal. Songs like “Memories Of A Broken Heart” and “Menace” show off the full power of the band as the rhythm section rocks hard, laying the groundwork for the duel vocal attack. Crown The Empire also adds a mainstream rock radio hit in “The One You Feed,” but it’s when the band kicks it into high gear on “Evidence” and “Children Of Love” that you get the full appreciation of what they have to offer. The album closes with the band's most aggressive song on the album, “Johnny’s Revenge.”

The new album, “The Fallout” is available now and they will be part of the “Take Action Tour 2013” along with The Used, We Came As Romans, and Mindflow. The tour begins on January 11 in Law Vegas, NV before heading to Connecticut on February 1st.
