After 9 years it is time to say goodbye to Dying Empire with a heavy heart. Big (farewell) words are not really my thing, but I would still like to get rid of a few things: The band was a reliable anchor in life, especially in turbulent times, and I am grateful, as well as for all the unforgettable moments we have experienced together. There were a number of highlights, a tour through southern Europe, numerous concerts in clubs and at open air events. We spent countless hours in the rehearsal room, in the studio, on the freeway and in various backstage areas, sharing both professional and private things with one another.

I will always keep in my heart the many years that I was able to be a part of this great band. Now, however, new tasks await me and I want to devote myself fully to my family. I thank my colleagues for the time together and wish them all the best for the future in his band! And I would also like to thank all supporters, fans, concertgoers, organizers, producers and everyone I forgot for making the last few years possible in this way.

Until then,

We are complete again

Say hello to our new addition Colin! Previously with the band HYSTERIA, he now takes over the second guitar for Mag.We are looking forward to a lot of creative input and start with new energy into the next chapter of our band history.Welcome to DyEm! You can check out what to expect:




Mag has left Dying Empire

In the last months a lot has happened within the band and privately. Quite a few things have changed and it took some time until we realized that we don’t all want to go the same way anymore and have the same goal in mind. Therefore Mag has decided with a heavy heart and in friendship to no longer go the same way with us. Here is his statement:

It all started with a sweaty evening at Heavy Duty in Dresden, when two slightly drunk longhaired guys chatted up another longhaired guy. That’s how it happened back then when Gastel and I brought Benner on board to form the project Dying Empire. Many years have passed since that evening. Festivals were played, there was a tour, countless club concerts, long evenings in the rehearsal room and a lot of time in the recording studio. But as As I Lay Dying sang so beautifully: “the only constant is change”. For me personally it’s time to choose a different path, that’s why I have decided to leave the project Dying Empire. Since I have been a part of it from the beginning this decision was not easy for me.

At this point I just want to say thank you again. THANK YOU for the great time, for the experiences and for the many nice moments I had with all of you.

See you in front of the stage at the next DyEm concert.

We thank him for incredible moments, intense musical and personal experiences and many memories that no one can take away from us. We thank him for his energy and time, look back on countless highlights and say goodbye with a smile in one eye and tear in the other.
