Course of Empire was an Alternative, post-punk band based in Dallas, Texas. The band was active for ten years, starting in 1988 and then disbanding in '98. The band had a distinctive sound to their music as they had two drummers in the line-up, playing simultaneously - this gave a 'propulsive, driving beat'. Vaughn Stevenson 1988-1998 - Vocals. Mike Graff 1988-1998 - Guitar. Paul Semrad 1988-1998 - Bass, backing vocals.
Initiation, the second release from these Dallas, TX, harbingers of doom, is a glimpse into the apocalyptic future of mankind. And apparently that future will be filled with darkness and suffering. With titles like "Infested!" and "Minions," the message is abundantly clear if a bit heavy-handed. Initiation is driven by the percussive onslaught of drummers Chad Lovell and Michael Jerome. This tag team's bottom-heavy quake ranges from tribal double-time marches ("Hiss" and "Infested!") to a thunderous hammer-of-the-gods build ("Sacrifice").
