Not an official bio is around. All I can recommend is to read this interview I conducted with the band last year:


All The Empires Of The World are another of one of my fave ever bands that I have promoted on this blog. I have featured them 4 times now. 3 album articles and 1 interview.

Well it's time to publish them on the blog for a 5th time as they are back with their excellent new album – Sunscraper. A 6 song and 38 minute album that venture between Sludge Metal, Post-Metal, Post Rock and Ambient Passages to portray an album full of heart and emotion to rattle your senses to.

I have said the past that All The Empires Of The World are one of the best Post-metal bands the UK has to offer at the moment. And Skyscraper just furthers that belief as I can't see any band within the UK Metal scene that matches the talent of vision of these brilliantly talented rockers.

I have championed them for the last 3 years or so and I am still going to be publishing their music especially when it's good as this. Sunscraper is their best release to date. Full of intricate melodies and riffs that will leave you begging for more. It's a haunting, hard-hitting and brilliant album that will have you coming back for more.

You only have to listen to the brutal epic – Fortress – to see why I rate these guys so highly. If you're a fan of Neurosis, Isis, Cult Of Luna and The Ocean then you can't pass this band by. They have a stunning collection of releases waiting to be discovered and all for free download as well.

Sunscraper sees the band at their most creative as they play a huge barrage of Sludge/Post-Metal riffs to slay you with. The band hardly play any live dates a they are more of a recording collective unit. Which is a shame as if these guys play live or promote themselves that little bit more they would be one of the defining Post-Metal bands around. So I respect their decision to stay out of the limelight.

It's just great for fans like myself they always release brilliant albums to continue their ever-lasting legacy. OK this may not be much of a review which I can only apologise for. If you're looking a brilliant Sludge/Post-Metal band to blow you entire world apart then I can't recommend these guys highly enough.

Check out tracks New Alexandria and Sundown on why this album is an absolute must have. You need to download this now as its available on Buy Now Download from Bandcamp.
