We are stoked to be a part of this year’s RPM Fest in Western MA this August alongside so many rad bands. We are closing out sunday night alongside Moon Tooth and Lazer/Wulf- but come hang out all weekend.
Spring is here, and we’ve got a bunch of great shows lined up, including a mammoth weekend as we hit the road with our PA fam Witch Fist, and a show in our neck of the woods with the mighty Inter Arma. Let’s get beers!
“equal parts post-metal, prog, stoner, psychedelic and sludge. Most importantly, they blend all these seemingly disparate elements into a whole that doesn’t sound the slightest bit scattered; it totally works. So where does that leave us? I don’t even fucking know. How about just “good,” is that enough? The band’s performance on “True Believer…” is their best to date. They sound even tighter and more focused here than they did on their Secret Snakes, Silent Serpent album, which only came out this past January.”
Happy new year, all. We had a tremendous 2015 with so many highlights- releasing a new album, being selected for Converse Rubber Tracks and working with Kurt Ballou, recording and performing at O+ Festival, playing so many amazing shows and meeting so many great friends… so we just wanted to say THANK YOU. Seriously, for all of your support.
We even managed to make it onto a couple top ten lists for 2015. Here’s where we ended up!
Trancendence Blog – #1 Instrumental Metal album of the year!
The Sideshow Podcast – #10! Episode 222: “Instrumental of the year. A big, rich, heavy and beautiful album.”
New Noise Magazine / Moon Tooth: New Noise magazine interviewed Moon Tooth and asked for their top ten of 2015 picks, which we landed on twice in no particular order.
Sleeping Shaman / Jason Hough – #3! “Quite honestly, with each release from these New York gentlemen, it becomes harder and harder to believe that there’s a genre of music these guys can’t touch and reinvent. Although primarily an instrumental sludge-borne heavyweight, Dead Empires stretch from psychedelic elements, crushing sludge tides, intoxicating ambience, steamrolling punk paces… even reggae gets a brief see-in. But it all equates to a thrilling powerhouse performance from one of the most supremely talented but criminally underrated groups around playing heavy, weirdly wonderful progressive music. The title split only serves to solidify the perfect balance of both beauty and beast found here.”
Darkside Records / Dennis O’Neil: We came in at #10 on his list for Darkside Records’ #DSTopTen2015 campaign!
Streetclip.tv / Nick Lee – Nick of Riot V and Moon Tooth selected us for his top 5 albums of 2015!
We have big things planned for 2016… we’ll see you all soon!
