Australian post-metal group Empress have just revealed a music video for Void Shaped Void new song off their forthcoming second album Wait `Til Night, which is set for release on November 20th via Brilliant Emperor Records.
Recorded by Liam Kriz at Ravager Sound and mixed by M. Deslandes, Wait ‘Til Night sees Empress once again blurring the lines of such diverse musical genres as shoegaze, post-rock and metal to craft a singular and emotional sound that defies easy categorization. More refined and mature than before, Empress is a clash of emotional and musical contradictions, soft and harsh, calm and hysterical. The track Golden Orb,
Empress blur many genre lines. One could reference alternative, indie, shoegaze, post-rock/metal…however the Gold Coast band is probably best described with adjectives – immersive, soothing, haunting, and delicately massive.
After a year of writing and recording, Empress entered the Brisbane dark music scene in 2017 with a six track self titled LP. An emotional collection of songs that push and pull the senses and drag you to the most secret corners of your mind.
Locally and through East Coast touring, Empress has played extensively with some of the countries most revered Metal, Hardcore, Post-Rock, Noise, Doom and Ambient artists as well as supporting international acts: Youth Code, Church of Misery, The Body, Wolves In The Throne Room and Cult Leader. Empress’ live show has been described as captivating, mesmerizing and beautifully terrifying.
