Many moons ago I was in Toronto and happened to stumble in on some friends working on their first EP. I was crashing on their couch for a few days, and was also invited to join in as a ‘guest vocalist’ for one of the songs. They’re called After The Empire, and their EP is now available for free download on their bandcamp page. Check out “Ghost Town” and listen closely for my guest ‘ooohs’ in the background at around 1:14. I really dig their stuff, because it’s got the heaviness of metal, the attitude of rock and roll, lots of atmosphere, and vocals that might not be your thing…at first, but will eventually become anthemic! “Freedom Lives… it simply is”.
