KillZone Records is extremely proud to announce that it is to sign New Jersey based thrash/prog/metal act Dark Empire for the release of the band's second album 'Humanity Dethroned' for release in North America and European territories. The release of 'Humanity Dethroned' is set for November.

Formed by Matt Moliti (lead and rhythm guitars, death vocals) in 2004, the current band includes Jens Carlsson (Savage Circus, Persuader) lead vocals, Andrew Atwood (lead, rhythm guitar, death vocals) and Samus (Suspyre, Mutiny) drums. Influenced by Symphony X and Rage, Moliti created Dark Empire to be what in his eyes would be the epitome of the perfect metal band: thrashy riffs, blazing solos and aggressive yet melodic vocals, full of energy and emotion.

Dark Empire are no stranger to success this early in their career. The band self released their debut album 'Distant Tides' placed 2 in the year end "best indie release of 2006" list), in BW&BK magazine scoring an impressive 9.5/10 and achieving rave reviews in the industry press and was eventually picked up Rock Machine Records in Brazil. 'Humanity Dethroned will be mastered by Mikka Jussla at Finnvox Studios (Children Of Bodom, Nightwish).
