ABSOLUTExclusive: I Am Empire Music Video
 
We are happy to premiere I Am Empire's music video for "Hammer and Anvils," which you can view in the replies. The song comes from their Tooth & Nail debut, Kings - which is still streaming in its entirety on the band's AP.net profile.

Who are they like? I heard Three Days Grace comparisons and I lost interest but if it's good I'd like to give it a shot.

If Ivoryline and Anberlin's baby banged Motley Crue...that love child.

Dude has a good voice, but the song is fucking boring.

it's a pretty sweet debut though, not going to lie...just this song is the weakest on the album.

This debut did little to nothing for me, sadly.

Really? Personally I thought it was one of the better songs. That chorus is radio rock candy imo

I love these guys. My daughter's been following them for years and I've seen them live several times. Absolutely love the video - Keep it up guys! Hope to see you in San Jose on Saturday!!

I have a hard time getting past the blatant Christian lyrics. the song alienates me. as well, i find the song rather bland. I really enjoy "Heart Attack" and "Take Me Away"

Easily the worst song on the album...

how does it alienate you? the lyrics are only saying that there is hope in the world and the singer of this band just happens to find that through his faith, it doesn't preach anything. a lot of people seem to find the fact that he says "Jesus" an automatic turn off....but what about this site's all time favorite band, Brand New? the song "Jesus Christ"? no one considers that a turn off...

this song is still not preaching and shouldn't make you feel alienated. not all christians are bible belt.

Bland....

Is there a grammy for hottest babe in a Christian Music Video?
