Emperor the Stag – ‘Fantasy to Bleak’ – new album

EmperorTheStagHit the rocky road with South Coast four piece Emperor the Stag. Their new album ‘Fantasy to Bleak’ is out now and deliciously dark.

With little concern for budget (or lack of) or the fact that some of the songs on this highly anticipated debut effort are just polished up ‘first demos,’ Emperor the Stag, confidently kick off 2014 with ‘Fantasy to Bleak’.  A four piece guitar band from Eastbourne, East Sussex (of all places) who could happily stand on the side of any high speed scene, much like The Cure did. Who some say are their vocal West Sussex counterparts.

If anything Fantasy to Bleak demonstrates Emperor’s solution to the long lost melody. The one that isn’t cut/pasted and complicated. This isn’t computer music and Emperor have gained a good deal of praise for that.( Introduced by the BBC radio and praised by Brighton Source for their 2013 appearance.)
