Empyrios are a band from Italy that knows no boundaries. If you look at the similar band listing, that should tell you what kind of music to expect from this band. While there are no exact similarities to the listed bands, there are many styles/influences in them. Do not expect to hear this band while having those bands in mind, this is for comparison only.

In short, the band is fronted by a killer guitarist whose guitar tone and style sound a lot like Michael Romeo's sound in Symphony X. The vocalist sounds eerily like the singer from Event, and the progressive elements of Trivial Act are there, while also incorporating jazz, fusion, prog rock, and thrash from the bands own words. The band consists of Simone Mularoni / Guitars, Matteo Mastroianni / Drums, Gianluca Gallo / Bass, Silvio Mancini / Vocals

This band is serious about its progressive metal. There is nothing warm and pretentious about this band. I'd have to say that the band is most close to Event in their no-holds-barred assault of prog metal, but they take it a step further by adding in a thrashy element, along with the fusion and other styles. The experimental style is thrown into your face immediately, and continues to assault the audio senses in every way possible. Do not look for any warmth, rhyme or reason, or some semblance of normalcy. This band is very aggressive, and very progressive in every way possible. With a production, and some guidance, this band could be something huge in the progressive metal world. At the very least, be on the lookout for guitarist Simone Mularoni; he could be on everyone's want list if Empyrios doesn't work out.
