about

Of Empires is a band with a unique vision - making heavy music for the masses. "Disintegration" is our debut EP. Our goal was to write modern metal with an emotional aspect you can connect with. We don't strive to fit any one genre or mold, but developed our sound by adding the best of everyone.

We hope to one day be touring. We've put so much heart in to get here.

Track Name: You'll Find Me in the East
Reach
There's a diamond in the fold
It's such a foolish thing
How?
Not a penny's worth of time to see
The clarity that came to be
At all costs
Room to breathe
This marks the only better life I've lived
It's hard to hide what's underneath

Move
The future is in hand
Hold
This is a promised land
Move
The future is in hand
Hold
This is a promised land

You're waiting for silence
You're waiting for something that just won't change
You'll see me rising
Wasting away on my own

I'm a nightmare
(Catch in throat)
I'll seek the end of my strife and suffering
Broken bones hold no haul for the machine
We are Legion (Bring you down)
You will not stand in my way
Disassemble
You will not decide my fate

I will not stand still while the dreams I've built just fade away
I will cling to the hope that kept me alive in the pits of my darker days
I will not stand still while the dreams I've built just fade away
I will cling to the hope that kept me alive, the hope of better days

You're waiting for silence
(I will not stand still while the dreams I've built just fade away)
You're waiting for something that just won't change
(I will cling to the hope that kept me alive in the pits of my darker days)
You'll see my rising
(I will not stand still while the dreams I've built just fade away)
Wasting away on my own
(I will cling to the hope that kept me alive, the hope of better days)
Track Name: Los Lobos
I envy the weak
Able to find their shelter
With the herd
I have too much time to think
And no one to call my own
No one to call my own
No one
I pulled a mask over my eyes
Just to hide my brother's
Disintegration
Into the desert sand
What was all my hope for?
Rip my soul in two

I've laid my head in a bed of loneliness for so long
I don't know what it's like to see

It's obscured by the light
Of the moon here
It's like a ceiling
I'll never see the sun again

I've laid my head in a bed of loneliness for so long
(This is not my imagination)
I don't know what it's like to see the sun anymore
(Someone is here)
I've laid my head in a bed of loneliness for so long
(This is not my imagination)
I don't know what it's like to see the sun anymore
(Someone is here)

And he has power like the sun
I am not alone
Track Name: Dead Men Tell No Tales
Oh no!
Halls of light had stolen you before my term
Before my eyes saw Philadelphia
Oh no!
Does the Vagabond steal ten weeks of your worth?
Can existence come undone?

In the war fed world we'll see a spoken state and then
Pushing charges earth ignored in its caustic movement

Is there some lasting trait?
Are we both the same in time?
What could you have been?
What could you have been?

The mourning of my parents for the life that came before
Was like bullets for the guns that fueled all my wars at home
We were left to hold the line against our own attacks
And live through every moment of it while you left alone

In the war fed world we'll see a spoken state and then
Pushing charges earth ignored in its caustic movement

All ignorance and false resentment placed aside
I can't blame you for what's happened here
We can't choose the sword that takes us
Anymore than we can choose our homes
