|Emperors Of The Wasteland release their debut album ‘Begin’ independently on 21st September.
“Sonically, Emperors Of The Wasteland occupy that space where Hard Rock meets Grunge. Anyone with a liking for heavy guitar music is likely to be reminded of a golden age where the sound of a Gibson guitar cranked through a Marshall amp dominated the UK Rock scene. The album has a thick guitar tone and some solid, hard-hitting drums that underpin Al Rhodes melodic vocals. His voice reminds me of something like a cross between Ian Astbury and Biff Byford, both formidable frontmen in classic bands, which is a credit to Emperors Of The Wasteland, who have largely succeeded to capture their arena-sized aspirations on their debut disc”
Formed in 2016, this Derby based hard rock band is a groove-oriented, blues-based rock band with a stoner edge and an image styled around a post-apocalyptic, mad max-esque theme.
The band have honed their skills on the road spending most of 2017 touring, supporting the likes of Love/Hate, Knock Out Kaine, Doomsday Outlaw, including opening for Faster Pussycat. They will be back supporting Love/Hate in 2019
EOTW are: Al Rhodes vocals, Sid Thindal guitars, Nick Ward bass, Frazer Knight drums
