Seeking Empire is an alternative rock band from San Francisco, California. Made up of musicians fro several other bands, Seeking Empire is more of a side project then anything else. Normally, side projects can be rather tedious but Seeking Empire is one of those rare exceptions. They bring a solid mix of upbeat instrumentals and strong vocals which make Seeking Empire a force to be reckoned with.
In late 2011, Seeking Empire released their self-titled, debut album. Encased in its seven songs are captivating melodies that get in your face and grab your attention, not in an annoying way but an effective one. The opening track, “Fairytale”, is a great attention grabber as it draws you in and keeps you there. “Broken” and “Liar Liar” are very catchy and are singer friendly, especially the latter.
My personal favourite, “Cave In”, really showcases the bands true vocal talent. Couple this with intricate lyrics and you can argue that this song is perhaps the true gem on the album. “Remember the End” has similar characteristics, mainly powerful vocals, however the instrumentals don’t seem to carry as much meaning as they did on “Cave In”. The second to last song on the album, “Deliver Us”, seems to tie the album together nicely by combining the upbeat instrumentals and powerful vocals to create a track that really sums the album up nicely. The album ends with a second version of “Liar Liar”.
Seeking Empire has all the characteristics of a talented band and can continue to make enjoyable music that people want to hear. Their self-titled, debut album was very well done. It was a solid album worth the seven dollars on iTunes. Consisting of a great creative mix, if Seeking Empire releases more music, it is sure to be very well done and I look forward to it!
