End of an Empire (Chapter 02: Love) [Discontinued]

Label: FiXT

Release date: December 5, 2014


End of an Empire (Chapter 02: Love)

This album has been re-released into End of an Empire (Deluxe Edition) and End of an Empire: The Remixes.

End of an Empire continues with the 2nd act in the prodigious third album from the hybrid electronic / rock artist Celldweller. Picking up right where ‘Chapter 01: Time’ left off, the “Love” chapter continues to build on the solely unique Celldweller fusion of compelling vocal melodies, destructive guitars, bewitching synthesis and atmospheres

After the opening “Faction,” (short pieces of sound design and story that serve as the backdrop for the world of End of an Empire), the album descends from it’s orbit with the 7 minute “Down to Earth” – a roller coaster ride that takes you from heavy guitars, blasting drums, gritty synthesizers and monstrous vocals to poignant leads, catchy rhythms and a touch of pop sensibility. “Heart On” lightens the mood with a tongue-in-cheek hook while still maintaining the signature Celldweller aggression for 6.5 minutes of a perfect yin and yang between dynamic and exciting instrumentation, propulsive beats and evocative vocals that echo the emotions one would expect from a chapter titled “Love.”

To further round out the release, Celldweller has again enlisted a selection of elite artists including alternative-culture mainstay Aesthetic Perfection, the YouTube production tutorial guru SeamlessR, EDM specialist KATFYR, along with the mysteriousMister Faux and a special VIP remix from Celldweller himself.
