Check out the quote from Heavy Planet below.
South Carolina’s Fall Of An Empire caused many a head to be turned and an ear to be pricked when in August 2016 they unleashed on to the world their superb and frankly unexpected masterpiece “Croweater: An Echo In The Bone“, a stunning opus packed to overflowing with fuzzy blues tinted stoner/hard rock grooves coated in uber-cool soulful vocals. The EP was warmly embraced by music fans and critics alike making it to a respectable eighth position in the September edition of The Doom Charts. This year the band release part two of their “Croweater” saga with “Croweater 2: The Last Wishes Of The Kings“
Shane Smith’s gnarly bass riff introduces first and title track “The Last Wishes Of The Kings” swiftly joined by Brad Muñoz’s solid, busy drums and Cody Edens and Brent Carroll’s gritty chordal guitar colouring, the four musicians laying down a bedrock of prog tinted stoner/hard rock for vocalist Kenny Lawrence to wrap his soulful larynx around, the frontman telling tales of kings, thrones and broken bones in honeyed heartfelt tones, the band together creating a virtual Game of Thrones for the ears.
