Sound, Style, Influences.

Sky Empire's musical inspiration ranges from classic progressive, heavy rock and metal bands, notably: Deep Purple, Rainbow, Yes, Rush and Journey through to more modern metal and progressive bands such as Iron Maiden, Pantera, Dream Theater and Symphony X.

The band independently released their first album, The Dark Tower, in early 2018. This was done with three previous members, Tom Hobson (Keyboards), Remi Jalabert (Drums) and Yordan Ivanov (Lead Vocals).

Soon after, the band signed with Dutch progressive record label Rock Company after The Dark Tower came to the label's attention. In September 2018 the album was officially released by the label to positive reviews noting in particular the songwriting along with the band members' strong musical performances.
