The beginning

Markus Staiger (Nuclear Blast) and Tobbe Falarz (former People Like You) launched recently the brand-new and local music label named “Arising Empire”, which partly takes advantage of Staigers successful metal label network and already is endued as well with major distribution channels from Warner.
“Arising Empire” will especially give a musical home to young, dynamic and hot bands from genres like metalcore, punk and rock. The first four signings already took place with AMOR (US), IMMINENCE (S) NOVELISTS (F) and the Munich Hardcore Band GWLT.
