Android Empire - The Old Bordello on the Hill of Sold Souls (2010)

First off...sorry for my brief absence. Been having a high and mighty time; it being a long weekend here and all. Fighting the burnout now.

Anyways, getting on with it. Welcome to the Android Empire! Based in Berlin, they play instrumental stoner metal. Even though there are no vocals, the pace constantly changes, and sharp metallic riffing dominates switching between doom, traditional heavy metal, and sludgy riffing of the Baroness/Mastodon variety, keeping the album from becoming stale or stagnant. Another highly recommended release.

Martin (guitar)
Detmar (bass)
Tobi (drums) (you can purchase the album and merchandise here, as well as listen to samples)
