Empiires are a metal band based out of Dallas, TX. A few singles under their belt thus far, Stronger is the latest tune from the band. Featuring a classic metal sound but imbued with the aggression of Texas metal, this is a band that has a bright future ahead of it. The band is made up of Bishop Booker on vocals, D Paul on guitars, Matthew Gene on bass, and Clay Wise on drums. The band calls Stronger “a rallying cry to anyone who has ever dealt with self doubt”. The track starts out furiously right off the bat, guitars overwhelming the mix immediately. The vocals feel inspired by the greats of metal – Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and singers from that ilk. Lyrically, the song feels like an anthem for empowerment. “What doesn’t kill me / Only makes me stronger”. Great, great stuff. The band locks into a nice groove, just a killer hard rock / heavy metal jam. I’m looking forward to what comes next from this band!

Verdict: Texas Metal Masterpiece
