Dark Empire: "These guys show why they are one of Blind Guardian’s successors." Metal Express Radio

"Presenting, what could have been, the next generation of the German Blind Guardian....
Dark Empire, an American and partly a Swedish joint force, plays a mixture of Power and Technical Thrash Metal along with some of the late Gothenburg’s Melodic Death Metal scene..........Humanity Dethroned shows a mature band that released itself from the world of fantasy to discuss more serious issues like violence, death, oppression and society itself. For fans of early Blind Guardian, Dark Empire is the best choice for taking the throne from the German Bards. Jens Carlsson on this project shows the young version of the legendary Hansi Kuersch and continues to be promising for years to come. The Metal world has evolved greatly and will earn a lot from these guys and bands like them."

Metal Express Radio 9.5/10

"Albums like this reaffirm that despite the crap that gets picked up by the boatload these days, there are still dedicated small independent bands like Dark Empire that can pump out the goods. If you bitch about how there is no more good metal coming out these days then get Humanity Dethroned. It shut me up for a few weeks."

New Church ov Melkarth release announced

Church ov Melkarth have returned from the depths of the abyss with a new EP called 'For The Darkness' to be released on iTunes very soon. Cult or occult? You decide. Church ov Melkarth are very different taking black metal atmospheres and the darkest depths and performing rituals of sound and word that can make you believe that beyond the blur of the edges of perception that darkness is unending, eternal and all engulfing. If you are a fan of ambient darknoise and drones Church ov Melkarth is an act you won't want to miss
