BAND BIOGRAPHY

A Brief Look

"Empire Warning," hailing from London, UK, is a ferocious 5-piece metal band that melds thunderous riffs with poignant lyricism. Their sound is an intoxicating blend of raw energy and intricate melodies, echoing the rich musical tapestry of their urban roots. With a commanding stage presence and a reputation for electrifying live performances, Empire Warning captures the essence of modern metal while paying homage to its timeless roots. Their relentless drive and authentic passion resonate with audiences, forging a sonic empire that warns of their indomitable presence in the metal realm.

 

last release “Unite and Die - 2020” received positive reviews from both fans and various music reviewers such as

                                            “...an absolute beast of a band” - Rock ‘n’ Load. 

                                 “Empire Warning draws in adoring crowds” - The Digital Fix.

       “This Band isn’t just Austin Powers Groovy, they’re full-on Southern Trendkill”- Moshville Times

                        “I can’t wait to see you shine and do your thing” - C.J. Pierce (Drowning Pool)

 

 Winners of the 2019 London “Metal 2 The Masses”, Empire Warning rode a wave of momentum all the way to the “New Blood Stage” of “BloodStock Open Air Festival” 2019.When the world closed it slowed production which gave us time to assess and bring to life a better representation of the style of music Empire Warming strives.

Upcoming E.P. “Destiny”, due to be released later this year.

Sands Of Time - Official Lyric Video

Description: This song was written during the height of the pandemic. It explores the feelings of isolation and fear during that time. This song is a reminder that nothing is guaranteed, and our time is short, make the best of life and take nothing for granted. www.EmpireWarning.com https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/empirewarning/destiny https://www.instagram.com/empirewarning/ https://www.tiktok.com/@empire.warning https://www.facebook.com/EmpireWarning/ https://www.youtube.com/empirewarning https://cutt.ly/EW_Spotify https://twitter.com/EmpireWarning https://www.bandmix.co.uk/empirewarning/ https://soundcloud.com/empire-warning https://www.threads.net/@empirewarning https://bandcamp.com/empirewarning Lyrics: Falling down, I’m inside the pit, The walls that surround me are made of shit! Living life without a regret, Burning on even though there’s nothing left. I’m building up my rage! I’m gonna fucking stay, I don’t wanna leave! I’m breaking down my pain! Teach me fucking hate, I don’t want to breathe! Broken down, I’m in so much pain, What have I done to live my life in chains?! Torn apart, can my mind be saved? Or will I only walk the path you pave? I’m building up my rage! I’m gonna fucking stay, I don’t wanna leave! I’m breaking down my pain! Teach me fucking hate, I don’t want to breathe! The sands of time move forward, So fast it seems, You’ve taken my life from me, My humanity! The sands of time move forward, So fast it seems, You’ve taken my life from me, My humanity! Killing time will come to us all, Never felt alive. Why am I so cold? Let me go, forget I exist, My fears die tonight, I must not persist. I’m building up my rage! I’m gonna fucking stay, I don’t wanna leave! I’m breaking down my pain! Teach me fucking hate, I don’t want to breathe! The sands of time move forward, So fast it seems, You’ve taken my life from me, My humanity! The sands of time move forward, So fast it seems, You’ve taken my life from me, My humanity! Time is but a moment, But a moment never lasts. I was never good enough, Forgetful of the past. The hourglass is empty, I’m sick of all this pain. If I could turn it over, Then I’ll always start again. But, Time is but a moment, But a moment never lasts. I was never good enough, Forgetful of the past. The hourglass is empty, I’m sick of all this pain. If I could turn it over, Then I’ll always start again. NOW! Time is but a moment! But a moment never lasts! I was never good enough! Forgetful of the past! The hourglass is empty! I’m sick of all this pain! If I could turn it over! Then I’ll always start again! The sands of time move forward, So fast it seems, You’ve taken my life from me, My humanity! The sands of time move forward, So fast it seems, You’ve taken my life from me, My humanity! The sands of time have fallen! You’ve taken my life! My humanity! The sands of time have fallen! You’ve taken my life! My humanity! Music written and performed by Empire Warning.

Destiny? - Official Lyric Video

Destiny? - Official Lyric Video

Description: Destiny? explores the idea that we are pre-destined to repeat the mistakes of our predecessors. Diving into personal behaviours that remind us of past hurt, asking how far the apple truly falls from the tree? A call for redemption and an end to both internal and family conflict. www.EmpireWarning.com https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/empirewarning/destiny https://www.instagram.com/empirewarning/ https://www.tiktok.com/@empire.warning https://www.facebook.com/EmpireWarning/ https://www.youtube.com/empirewarning https://cutt.ly/EW_Spotify https://twitter.com/EmpireWarning https://www.bandmix.co.uk/empirewarning/ https://soundcloud.com/empire-warning https://www.threads.net/@empirewarning https://bandcamp.com/empirewarning Lyrics: The same blood runs through my veins, Am I destined to make the same fucking mistakes?! No escape from the sins of your past, Emulate, replicate, are we made from one cast? Taken back by some of the stories I’m told, How alike we are, is there no difference at all? Will I one day become all that I hate? No way motherfucker! No not today! Family or not, you fucking tore me apart! You do not dictate, how the healing starts! Am I bound to this fate? Will I heal in time? Is it true what they say? Will I fade away? People look at me they see you, You fucking tore me down, you broke my heart in two! We only get one turn in this game called life, Still we are, wasting time, our words lead onto strife. I’m giving up now cause this shit is too old, We’ve done this for too long, we have done it all. Will we mend these wounds before it’s too late? No way motherfucker! Nothing left to say! Family or not, you fucking tore me apart! You do not dictate, how the healing starts! Am I bound to this fate? Will I heal in time? Is it true what they say? Will I fade away? Am I bound to this fate? Will I heal in time? Is it true what they say? Will I fade away? Will I fade away?! Am I bound to this fate? Will I heal in time? Is it true what they say? Will I fade away? Am I bound to this fate? (Someone tell me why am I bound to this fate?) Will I heal in time? (Someone tell me why I can’t break these chains?) Is it true what they say? (Someone tell me why am I bound to this fate?) Will I fade away? (Someone tell me why I can’t fade away?) Will I fade away?! Will I fade away?! Will I fade away?! No, not today! Music written and performed by Empire Warning.

Just Run - Official Lyric Video

Description: Just Run is a tale of betrayal, and broken friendships. Its emphases the anger and rage spawned from an act of cowardice that caused history to repeat itself. The story of a darker chapter in Empire Warning’s history which ultimately led to us evolving and growing stronger as a band. www.EmpireWarning.com https://www.instagram.com/empirewarning/ https://www.tiktok.com/@empire.warning https://www.facebook.com/EmpireWarning/ https://www.youtube.com/empirewarning https://cutt.ly/EW_Spotify https://twitter.com/EmpireWarning https://www.bandmix.co.uk/empirewarning/ https://soundcloud.com/empire-warning https://www.threads.net/@empirewarning https://bandcamp.com/empirewarning Lyrics: Relive a memory, don’t I know you? It’s all too familiar, déjà-vu, Haven’t we been here? Well? Haven’t been here?! I give an inch you take a mile, Guess that pound of flesh, wasn’t worth your while? Try to eradicate all your suffering. While I bleed, bleed! I watch you bleed, bleed! I’ll make you bleed, bleed! With a fist to the face! I will extract my pound of flesh. With a fist to your face! A fucking fist to your face! We will extract our pound of flesh! Things at play! Release my anger. And run away! Things at play will release it! Just run! Things at play! Release my anger. And run away! Things at play will release it! Just run! Flirt with temptation, I trusted you. We’re back in the same place, because of you! Still, we are right here, we’re fucking right here! Conflict inside, is it love or hate? Never questioned once, a single word you said. Familia para sempre? Nem amizade tu mareces! Cause you lied, lied! Oh, you lied, lied! You fucking lied, lied! And slapped us in the face! We will extract our pound of flesh, With a fist to your face! A fucking fist to your face! We will extract our pound of flesh! Things at play! Release my anger. And run away! Things at play will release it! Just run! Things at play! Release my anger. And run away! Things at play will release it! Just run! Things at play! Release my anger. And run away! Things at play will release it! Just run! Things at play! Release my anger. And run away! Things at play will release it! Just run! Burn in Hell. Go away! Just run, Just run, Just run, Just run, Just run, Just! Just run! Just run! Just run! Just run! Just run away! Just run away! Just run away! Just run away! Just run away! Just run away! Just run away! Just run! Just run! Away! Music written and performed by Empire Warning.

Be My Victim - Official Lyric Video

Be My Victim Inspired by the 1992 slasher horror “Candyman”, this song journeys into the mind of the title character of the film. Detailing his descent into the monster he would become. https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/empirewarning/be-my-victim www.EmpireWarning.com https://www.instagram.com/empirewarning/ https://www.tiktok.com/@empire.warning https://www.facebook.com/EmpireWarning/ https://www.youtube.com/empirewarning https://cutt.ly/EW_Spotify https://twitter.com/EmpireWarning https://www.bandmix.co.uk/empirewarning/ https://soundcloud.com/empire-warning https://www.threads.net/@empirewarning https://bandcamp.com/empirewarning *Lyrics*: An unbearable crutch that society expels, On my last day on Earth, they put me through hell! They tore my body apart for the love that I felt, I was eaten alive as my humanity fell. I am the writing on the wall! The whisper in your classroom! Without these! I could not exist. Be my victim, Let me tear you apart. Give into insanity, feed my rage. Be my victim, Give me all that you are. Call on me, here's a mirror, open my cage. Be my victim, Let me tear you apart. Give into insanity, feed my rage. Be my victim, Give me all that you are. Call on me! I will take your pain away! Reborn into this world, almost a memory now. No longer from this world! Yet I emerge from hell. A nightmare kept alive, by stories they tell. Say my name five times! See what happens now! I am the writing on the wall! The whisper in your classroom! A killer! That you cannot resist. Be my victim, Let me tear you apart. Give into insanity, feed my rage. Be my victim, Give me all that you are. Call on me, here's a mirror, open my cage. Be my victim, Let me tear you apart. Give into insanity, feed my rage. Be my victim, Give me all that you are. Call on me! I will take your pain away. I will take your pain away! Be mine! Be my victim! Be mine! Be my victim! Be mine! Be my victim! Be mine! Be my victim! Be my victim! Be my victim! Be my victim! Be my victim! Be my victim! Be my victim! Be my victim! Be my victim! Be mine! Music written and performed by Empire Warning.
