Oxford, UK-based alternative metal quartet Broken Empire recently released a new single. Disguise is the first composition from their highly anticipated debut full-length album, expected to be released later this year. Broken Empire strikes hard right from the start though cleverly assembled clusters of melodies, harmonies, ear-appealing chants on one side, and heavy, robust, punchy guitar shreds and beats on the other side. These highly creative musicians are taking the best of both worlds to achieve a fresh, unique, complex, but compact contemporary alternative metal sound. Judging by the sheer energy enclosed in Disguise, it’s more than obvious they achieved their aims.
Broken Empire is not yet another band on the alternative metal scene. These guys are taking things on an entirely new level thanks to their clever ideas, jaw-dropping musicianship, and ability to combine several complementary genres into a colossal slab of harmonious noise. Besides the sheer dominance of alternative rock, you may stumble upon some other ingredients such as modern metal, modern rock, alternative rock, and hard rock. Disguise is more than a good result of their creativeness, and there’s not even the slightest doubt you’ll love this tune if you’re into some heavy music. Disguise is available for listening on all streaming services.
