THE GREAT RUSSIAN EMPIRE - Track From Upcoming EP Available For Streaming

The Great Russian Empire, a dark rock collective from Montreal (Canada) has made available for streaming the first single "Blood Everywhere", taken from their upcoming EP entitled Low Ends, which is due out on 8th September.
Bassist Benoît Forté comments: "This is the heaviest song on the EP. The lyrics are related to the saturated media of the Dr. Guy Turcotte case, where he killed his two children. It was everywhere, it almost drove me crazy one night going to bed. The only way I could free myself of the whole thing was putting lyrics to paper."
The Great Russian Empire create music in an environment where guitars don’t exist. This project features a double-bass approach from bassist Benoît Forté (The Lonely Sidewalkers, Coco Méliès, ex-Fallstaf, ex-North East Bistro) and bassist Nicolas Miquelon (Norilsk, Mortör, ex-Kintra).
The project is bred by the 80s new wave and early 90s alternative genre, by way of modern folk and various rock influences. Its bass orientation carries something different at its core, although familiar in its construction and arrangements. Far from referencing a pastiche, The Great Russian Empire’s name is a wink to the collective and eclectic nature of this musical venture.
The Great Russian Empire released a first single, “Pig’s Blood” in 2014, to showcase the new entity’s persona. After revisiting the song’s arrangements, writing more material, and adding a few soldiers to its ranks (either permanent or session musicians), the collective re-entered the studio to assemble Low Ends. Dark in content, the EP’s lyrics are crafted around tragic personal events, and layered with vocals, violin and cello. Listen to "Blood Everywhere" in the player below. Link
