Empirine are a Swedish duo who play a pretty interesting flavor of technical death metal. They sound like Omnivium-style Obscura with the vocals, tone and general style, Focus-era Cynic with some of the riffage and vocoders, and Damnation-era Opeth with the clean interludes. Is your mouth watering already? Just go check out their EP The Great Excursion below!

I think they have a very bright future ahead of them with their strong mix of great influences, so please support Alexander Edlund (vocals, keyboard, production) and Robin Brinck (everything else)! I will definitely be keeping an eye out for these guys.
