FDJ Heavy down tuned stoner doom from Southend on Sea, Essex, England.
A little Kyuss mixed with a little Ufomammut makes for a whole lot of Myopic Empire. Favorite track: Eyes of Our Brothers.

Craig If John Garcia were to ever front a gnarly Doom metal band this is kind of what it would sound like. Mixed stoner/heavy metal vibes create a unique listening experience. Favorite track: Eyes of Our Brothers.

Track Name: Eyes of Our Brothers
If you ever had to choose,
you lamented an easier life
You supped at the table of freedom
and wished you had no strife

If you ever wondered what is real
you are amongst friends right now
You tasted the sweetness of liberty
And you never wondered how

And we have no free will
we have none, none at all
No no no free will
my friend

We wanted a freedom from pain
We chose the path we're on
We watched the leaves fall from the rose
And now our liberty's gone

And now people I don't know
Know me, and whatever I do
And I can't sleep
And it's all because of you

And we have no free will
we have none, none at all
No no no free will
No no no free will
my friend

Well bring on the censors
and bring on the sensors
and bring me a new way of life

And we have no free will
we have none, none at all
No no no free will
my friend
Track Name: Biofuel
Wave after wave of deforestation
We're distraught by your methods and plans
Your strive for a goal with the purest of hearts
But myths of life cloud your minds
Something afoot in the future of man
We're heading to the apex of greed... well they say
Keep your heads because, they have the plan
We're turning soil into oil!

Wreaking your havoc on the world of your children
Nothing will stand in your way
You have desire, your faith and your hunger but
Starvation is coming your way

Promises, promises, my delectation
Mother nature in a scientist's hands
Mankind was cursed with the poorest of starts
But biofuel will save our behinds
The government's plans will save all of man
We'll follow where technology leads... well they say
Keep your heads because, they have the plan
We're turning soil into oil!

Wreaking your havoc on the world of your children
Nothing will stand in your way
You have desire, your faith and your hunger but
Starvation is coming your way

Soaking the soil with your devastation
Dollars and pounds for the ruling clans
Gazing through windscreens instead of the stars
The drones will never decide
Crushing the future with one giant wheel
Steering us all to Valhöll... well they say
Keep your heads because, they have the plan
We're turning soil into oil!

--solo--

Wave after wave of deforestation
There's a God in your eyes I can see
Wasting the planet to feed the human disease
Feeding the people with lies
They're insulting the past, the forest won't last
And I worry what people believe... well they say
Keep your heads because, they have the plan
We're turning soil into oil!

Wreaking your havoc on the world of your children
Nothing will stand in your way
You have desire, your faith and your hunger but
Starvation is coming your way
Track Name: God Machine
Machines all around
An archaic ground
A fallen idol

Death to a martyr
Face in the sand
Turn my face away

If you don't believe
You're with me

Sunken and blind
Dead within mind
A fallen idol

Taking paradise
Making it hurt
Making it bleed

If you don't believe
You're with me

Crushing my dreams
Raking in cash
Slaking its thirst

Turn away
Tread your path through
Believe it
It’s for real

If you don't believe
You're with me
