Melody. Power. Beauty. Ferocity. This is Black Orchid Empire.
Channeling the attitude of QOTSA, the melodic complexities of Deftones and the mammoth riffs of Royal Blood, BOE’s skilfully crafted songs are immediately memorable. Often wrestling in an ocean of distortion, sometimes poignantly vulnerable, this is a vitally refreshing band.
Their debut album ARCHETYPE – self recorded, produced and mixed at The Record Label Studios in London and mastered by the legendary Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound New York (Alice In Chains, Deftones, Green Day, Muse), the album resonates with furious purpose.
Black Orchid Empire’s incendiary, high-impact live show has seen them steadily grow in acclaim, chalking up gigs with heavyweights Biffy Clyro, Skunk Anansie and Editors, as well as winning Emergenza UK.
Driven, determined and exceptionally talented, this London-based trio are perfectly positioned to thrive in the resurgent British rock scene.
BOE, formed from the realisation that rock music does not have to be cut and pasted on a grid – intense beauty and power can coexist in a swirling ocean of guitar, bass, drum and voice.
BOE deliver intensely memorable songs that embrace soaring melodies, unusual time signatures and grooving drum patterns. This creative collaboration will capture the listener and never let go.
Whether on record or at a snarling live performance, their arresting, heartfelt music demands your attention. Finding a purpose has never sounded this good.
