Emperors and Elephants
Emperors and Elephants released an AMAZING album back in 2014 called Devil in the Lake. Every song kicks ass. With a sound born in the grunge of the 1990’s and updated with some modern day metalcore, this band is one to be reckoned with. Add in vocalist Jesse Andrews' gripping voice and beautiful guitar licks, and I would say Devil in the Lake is a must-have album.
Despite a way variety of influences, Stiph pinpoints "industrial metal" as a serious contributor to their sound. From Rammstein to NIN, you can hear his love for melody a la Alice in Chains, as well as hard core shredding coming through on every tune.
While I usually like to suggest one or two songs to get you into a band, with Emperors and Elephants you can start with any song and you will be blown away.
You owe it to yourself to spend some time listening to what this band has to offer. Follow this to their ReverbNation page.
Stiph can't wait to perform at Rocklahoma, especially so he can "see guys from the road like Screaming for Silence and Shaman's Harvest," as well as Sixx A.M.
While there are many reasons over the years to get out to Pryor early, Emperors and Elephants is probably one of the best in the five years I have been a Rocklahoma attendee.
Emperors and Elephants is comprised of Jesse Andrews on vocals, Jeph Stiph on guitar, Jason Meudt on drums, and Ron “Stoppable” Vanders on bass
