    Line up:
    CJ Grimmark (Rob Rock, ex. Narnia, Fullforce, Beautiful Sin) - Guitars
    Ricard Hulteke - Vocals
    Tobias Enbert (Darkwater, Harmony) - Drums
    Andreas Ålöv - Bass
    John Svensson (Harmony) - Keyboard

    This newcomer singer Ricard Hulteke is really good and the album as a whole is high-quality hard rock/melodic metal IMO.

    Highly recommended and could end up in my faves of 2014.

    Holy smokes this album is awesome. It's what Level 10 would have been with better songwriting. And that vocalist is incredible.

    How does it compare to Level 10? From what I heard so far, Level 10 looks much heavier and maybe less melodic?

    THis Empire 21 album is indeed excellent. And the singer rules.

    I thought Level 10 was really solid, and everybody sounded great, but the songs weren't terrific. This album to me is far superior and will likely get a fraction of the attention.

    Listened to Level 10 samples on Amazon. Despite those involved, it pales in comparison to the quality of Empire 21.
