Interview with I’ll Be An Empire!

Genre(s): Progressive Metal
Location: Kennesaw, GA
 
PSAB: Why did you choose the name “I’ll Be An Empire” for your band? 

IBAE
: One
of our vocalists, Alex, came up with the idea for our name back in
2010. We feel like it’s a catchy & memorable name that draws people
to our music.
 
 
PSAB: You released your EP, Thelema, back in August. How has the feedback been for that? 

IBAE
:
Overall
reception so far has been amazing! We couldn’t be happier with what
Thelema has done for us as a band, even in the short time it’s been out.
It’s so cool to have your friends/peers listen to & like what we’ve
worked so hard on for so long.
 
 
PSAB: If you could do a split album with one other band, which band would that be? 

IBAE
:
That’s
an extremely tough choice, there are a few we’ve had in mind. Locally,
it’d have to be either Our Thoughts Amounted, Adharma, or The
Antikythera Mechanism. But as far as national/international bands, The
Contortionist or Between the Buried & Me would be awesome.
 
 
PSAB: What is the metal scene like in Kennesaw, GA? 

IBAE
:
It’s
very diverse, for sure. Kennesaw/Atlanta has a variety of great bands
for every genre, as well as every sub-genre of metal.
 
 
PSAB: What are some of the bands you listened to growing up? Do those bands play an influence on your music now? 

IBAE
:
We
all listened to somewhat different stuff growing up which shaped our
initial taste/interest in rock music, but now our common influences
would have to be Meshuggah, Periphery, TesseracT, Between the Buried
& Me, Misery Signals, Veil of Maya, Cattle Decapitation, The
Contortionist, & Rings of Saturn.
 
 
PSAB: Have any shout outs to give? 

IBAE
:
We
would like to thank Pig Squeals & Breakdowns, first of all, for
interviewing us. Also, shoutout to sphaghetti. We want to thank every
single person who’s bought our EP, your support is what’s helping us
grow as a band! As well as the guys in If Machines Spoke In Riddles,
Adharma, Glacius, Extrania, Sustenance, The Antikythera Mechanism,
Prophet, It Was Late Last Night, A Legacy Unwritten, Decayer, Collapse
of the Empire, & Our Thoughts Amounted for being the eternal homies
& making Atlanta metal as badass as it is! #WhoIsMoneyBastard
