In our continuing effort to release the most unique and creative acts Metal Hell Records is very proud to announce our newest signing TAMERLAN EMPIRE from Australia!
“Tamerlan” (also known as: Timurlan, Amir Temur, Timurleng, Timur Khan) once a powerful emperor (1370-1405), is the source of lyrical content of the band TAMERLAN EMPIRE that is also reflected its unique sound. Not only are the songs about the past emperor’s battles and conquests but have drawn a much deeper influence from his dark brutal side and strategic mind that were observed in his detailed forward-thinking many steps ahead of the enemies and allies. Unbridled cruelty and archness; the songs also highlight the overlord’s great interest and contribution to science, architecture, astronomy and literature during his reign. The band Tamerlan Empire doesn’t follow any religious or anti-religious concepts and has its own view and opinion on every instance. Like Tamerlan’s army, the band is wielded with high discipline of unity and strides confidently towards its goals.
Tamerlan Empire performs a fusion of symphonic black metal with Middle Eastern melodies and rhythms. The style has taken the aggressiveness of metal and blends in an eastern sounding tone that reflects the great emperor Tamerlan’s ideology. The following has been a creative challenge to arrange music in both a western and eastern style while retaining the metal format. The result is a unique sound that can be identified as Tamerlan Empire!
The first material of Tamerlan Empire is the “Isfahan’s Fall Demo” which Metal Hell Records is releasing worldwide on all digital media outlets (iTunes, Spotify, etc). Metal Hell Records has also picked up the physical CD for mail-order distribution. The original pressing is limited to just 100 copies worldwide on Digipak CD. You can order it here by clicking the cover art below.
The band is currently performing live in support of Isfahan’s Fall around Australia as well as working on material for their debut full-length album.
