Dangerdog Music Reviews
Empire's previous release 'Raven Ride' was a very impressive piece of work. Now Tony Martin is gone on vocals, only to be released by rocker, Doogie White (Cornerstone, Rainbow, and many others). Empire, however, has not skipped a beat in this transition. This is consistent melodic hard rock with great melodies and hooks wrapped in a hard driving performance. Mr. White appears to have been born to sing these songs. He is clear and passionate. And the rest of the band which includes founder Rolf Munkes (guitar), Neil Murray (bass, Ex Gary Moore, Ex Black Sabbath Ex Whitesnake), and Mike Terrana (drums, Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Axel Rudi Pell, Rage, Metalium among others) easily move through the compositions with enthusiasm and acumen....
