Edguy - Age of the Joker (2011)

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.

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!

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.

    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
