In 2002 the iconic neo-folk outfit, Empyrium released what they called their final work, Weiland, and called it quits. Eight years since that day has come and gone but according to a press release from Prophecy Records, Empyrium have dusted off their instruments and are planning a full return to music. Markus Stock, vocalist and guitarist for the band, had this to say about the reunion:
"Since the rumours start to spread we think it's about time to make this official: EMPYRIUM is alive again! Our first new sign of life will be the song 'The Days Before The Fall' on the Prophecy Prod. compilation 'Whom The Moon A Nightsong Sings' but we have plans for more! The spirit is back and it really feels right to us to start writing songs with EMPYRIUM again. We are not in a rush though so don't expect a full lenght today or tomorrow but we have the patience and faith to make this new songs outstanding and unique. Just as EMPYRIUM ever was...."
