A Canadian Prog metal band releases it's long over due 6th Release ! EMPYRIA's new release "The Long Road Home" is a return to their earlier progressive hard rock/metal roots. A very diverse release produced, engineered and mixed by guitarist Mike Kischnick. From more straight ahead power metal tracks like "The Endless Circle" & "Last Rites" to more melodic rock oriented tracks like "No Other Way" and "Walk Away" EMPYRIA remains true to their progressive leanings without being cliche and jumping on the progressive metal formats bandwagon. Well crafted songs and lyrics create a thematic landscape with an epic closing track "Returning Home" allowing new drummer Scott Gamble a place to shine. "The Long Road Home" is a musical journey through EMPYRIA's past, present and future which will expand the listening audience beyond just the progressive rock/metal world. In the 18 years of the bands existence, the Canadian band EMPYRIA released in 1993 it's independent demo release "Ornamental Ironworks" cassette in a time when Progressive/Power Metal was being cast aside by the industries onslaught of Grunge and Mainstream Pop music. But EMPYRIA held their ground musically and in 1996 saw the release of their debut album "Behind Closed Doors" (produced by: Dale Penner (Nickleback)) on NOISE/T&T Records (Germany). Although a lineup change came in 1997 from Paul Falcon (Vocals/Bass) leaving the band and making the band a 4-piece with Phil Leite (vocals) and Ken Firomski (Bass), EMPYRIA realized there was a viable musical outlet for Progressive Metal worldwide and in 1998 released their follow -up album "Changing Currents" gaining an even stronger fan base and disribution through Nightmare Records (U.S.). Also appearing on Thomas Youngblood's (Kamelot) compilation release "Powerquest" in 1998. Staying true to their progressive roots EMPYRIA released "The Legacy" on Nightmare Records in 2000, in essence an EP that contained all four parts of their "Lighter Side of Darkness" in a continuous 25 minute epic. Well received by critics and prog. metal fans alike. In 2002 the full length "Sense of Mind" was released on Scrape Records (Canada) and hailed by critics as EMPYRIA's best release to date, with all releases appearing in "The A-Z of Power Metal"book. The band went on a slight hiatus for a few years due to Mike Kischnick's involvement as guitarist/producer/songwriter for Canadian metal icon "THOR" ( 5 albums/ 2 tours) as well as various side projects (Ten2Nine/ Severed Serenity/New Horizon/Life). While on a U.S. tour with THOR, Mike and Paul Falcon had met and discussed the possibilities of recording a new EMPYRIA album together. Well it's been 7 years but "The Long Road Home" is finally here with the help of new drummer Scott Gamble and longtime EMPYRIA singer Phil Leite. Believing that progressive music should never be a format, EMPYRIA remains distinct to their sound and style. Returning to their progressive rock/metal roots reflecting early influences of the band (revisiting early material never commercially released, as well as new material). It's been a long road but EMPYRIA has come back home, with their most accessible material so far, opening the door to a whole new world of listeners and fans. Line-up:Phil Leite (vocals)Mike Kischnick (guitars/synth)Paul Falcon (bass)Scott Gamble (drums) Personnel: Mike Kischnick (guitar, guitar synthesizer, background vocals); Neville ...
