British Progressive Rock/Metal band Black Orchid Empire have announced their first “Live In The Studio EP” for April 16, 2021 via Long Branch Records. The live EP includes one song from each of their critically acclaimed full-length albums. These ferocious performances showcase the band’s huge sound and machine-like tightness as the three-piece thrive in their natural environment – the recording and rehearsal space that gave birth to so many of their monstrous riffs. “Pray To The Creature” the first video single off the new EP is available now on YouTube.
Watch the video for “Pray To The Creature” below:
Black Orchid Empire guitarist and singer Paul Visser about the EP: “Playing live in front of an audience is always an incredible experience, but much of our music was created in a more personal and isolated place. Filming three of our favourite songs in the room in which so many of them were written, thrashed out and recorded was an amazing experience which we we can’t wait to share!”

Black Orchid Empire create huge, memorable Rock music that combines Heavy-hitting savagery with intense Melodic beauty. Their technical, fearlessly complex grooves and gigantic sing-along choruses have already earned them a widespread fanbase.
A ferociously tight live band, Black Orchid Empire have toured Europe and the UK extensively, supporting Skunk Anansie on their sold out 25th anniversary shows, including Brixton Academy. These appearances, as well as previous tours with HED p.e, INME, Black Map and Ravenface, combined with festival slots at Download, Standon Calling, Planet Rockstock, Camden Rocks and Taubertal, have sealed the bands reputation as a force to be reckoned with.
“Beautiful melodies coupled with tear-your-face-off riffs. Bright fresh new stars” Skin, Skunk Anansie
