Edguy have a new album on the way, their 9th in fact, and is titled 'Age of the Joker'. I don't know too much about it but Tobias has desribed it as "anthemic" and "melodic". I love the cover art too. Release is set for August 2011 on Nuclear Blast Records.

yeah i'm curious on this album as well, anthemic and melodic sounds like a contender to Hellfire and Rocket, but hopefully Toby isn't just boasting this off :party421:

i agree with the term of 'genius', although Tinnitus and Avantasia Babylon isn't as good as I expected, at least The Wicked Symphony is pretty solid in my book.

 

Didn't expect much from this, but hopefully he can top out Tinnitus this time, at least on par with Rocket :popcorn:

After the last pile of shit they released, I officially am on suspect status, I will wait and listen to samples before I blow my hard earned money like I did last disc, imo Hellfire Club is a pinnacle album and cant be outdone, so im basically just buying Edguy discs in search of hopefully a couple good new songs, at most!

NO ROCKET RIDE WAS ABSOLUTELY KILLER!! I LOVED IT, IF THEY EVEN LANDED AN ALBUM THAT WAS A QUARTER OF WHAT ROCKET RIDE WAS I'LL SPORT WOOD, I WOULD BE IN HEAVEN!!

that's what I'm expecting so hopefully this one is a great mixed bag of their classic melodic metal of Hellfire and melodic hard rock of Rocket :christmas:

 

Yeah we live in hope.

I just bought Tinnutus Sanctus and yup it's not that good. There's a few good songs and the sound is good but I wonder if Tobias is spreading himself thin with Edguy and Avantasia projects every year. Hopefully this new is good.

From the first preview: Haha... bad sign that I was already fast forwarding the 'Robin Hood' song - terrible, but 'Nobody's hero' is excellent. 'Rock of 'Cashal' is awful too, 'Pandora's Box' sounds good.

 

From the 2nd preview the last song sounds brilliant... but the ones before sound like duds too. Overall, it sounds like there will be plenty of fillers, but hopefully the good stuff is good enough to make it an overall winner.
