Offering up what feels like a metalcore take on Linkin Park, Crown the Empire fuse electronic ambience with metal catharsis, creating a moody and dramatic sound that sets the Dallas, Texas band apart from their contemporaries. Featuring singers Andy Leo and David Escamilla, guitarists Brandon Hoover and Bennett Vogelman, bassist Hayden Tree, keyboard player Austin Duncan, and drummer Brent Taddle, the seven-piece band puts its massive ranks to good use, crafting a sound for themselves that's dense without being so busy that the message is lost in the noise. Crown the Empire made their debut in 2011 with the self-released EP, Limitless, followed by their first full-length effort, The Fallout, which arrived on Rise Records in 2012.
