Latest Bandcamp Release

Interviews: Storm The Empire


On this new occasion, we have had the opportunity to interview the Melodic Metalcore band, Storm The Empire from Canada. Check out the interview and follow the band on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

1.Where did you get the idea for the band name, you planned it or came out just like that?

It started off as just something that we called ourselves not really thinking too much of it, but the longer we've been a band the more the concept of Unity worldwide becomes our main vision. Storm the Empire is a name we've grown into like a big pair of shoes, It's become our Identity.

2.Why did you want to play this genre?

Metal music is more than just a genre to us. The power that comes from the metal community, the music and the message are crucial to our love of this entity. Metal embraces the most wanted and sought after thing and that is Unity. Metal music unites people from all different walks of life, and no one (except the elitists) judges one another for their choice in looks, beliefs and lifestyle.

3. Did you know each other before the band was formed?

Robb and Norm have known each other for 25 years prior to forming. Dale found Jake and Norm after moving to Canada from the UK. Robb and Dale met at work and that was the beginning of Storm the Empire.

Norm: Lamb of God 

Dale: Dorje

Jake: Some chick asked me to go out with her, two years later she won't leave.

13. What do you think of your fans?

Where do we even begin... They are the blood in our veins, the force that drives us to continue our journey. We wouldn't be anything without them, and for that we are forever grateful.
