Tight grooves mixed with catchy melodies, ambient sounds, energetic live shows and a drive to keep improving themselves are elements deeply ingrained in the DNA of Echo Empire.
Starting out in 2015 as a solid rock band, this Dutch five-piece in the following years developed a more diverse sound combining catchy atmospheric melodies with their groovy rock foundation. Some might even say that their style leans toward the bigger pop/rock music culture of the 1980s.
The evolution of their sound resulted in the EP ‘Waves’, which was released in the summer of 2018. The EP included the earlier recorded single ‘Melt’, as well as the two brand new singles 'You' and 'A Wave'. Both new singles got very positive reviews from various local Dutch radio stations.
May 2019 saw the birth of their follow-up EP ‘Illusions’, which is completely recorded by the band themselves and mixed by Edwin Balogh (Tamas, Omega, Ayreon).
‘Illusions’ consist of 5 newly recorded songs and is a fine representation of what Echo Empire is about. From atmospheric songs like ‘My Savior’, ‘Shape my life’ and title track ‘Illusions’, to the more intense ballad ‘Alright’ and the grooving ball busting rock song ‘Never Enough’. This EP has something for everyone!
With their new release, Echo Empire intend to bring their music to a larger audience and to improve their live shows even further.
