Fantasy Empire

Fantasy Empire

This noise-rock duo’s sixth album and first in six years is also their first to be recorded in a studio using hi-fi equipment that captures the overpowering energy of their performances. The Providence, R.I.–based duo of drummer Brian Chippendale and bassist Brian Gibson have been physically exhausting audiences for 20 years, setting themselves in the middle of the floor to create a circle that breaks down the fourth wall. “The Metal East” captures the mania of hardcore and thrash at its most bewildering, with “King of My World” representing a free jazz exploration. “Mythmaster” pounds with a tribal ferocity.
