Edguy - Preparing For Their Next Album


Edguy are currently preparing to hit the studio to work on the successor of their recent album "Rocket Ride".

Vocalist Tobias Sammet has posted the following update:

"People think that we are quite fast but that's not the truth. I completed the Avantasia album last autumn, the Avantasia songwriting itself was completed even way back in 2006. All the new ideas I've had since then could be taken for Edguy. In fact, this is a long time to refresh your creativity and gather new stuff. The material sounds very fresh, it embraces all the different trademarks of Edguy, I think it is a logical continuation of Rocket Ride and Hellfire Club. Maybe it doesn't come across as goofy as Rocket Ride, but I am sure if we have fun in the studio we'll have enough possibilities to ruin the day for notoriously bitter people, haha. Yet it's more bombastic and heavier, not too fast cause I really don't like pure Speed Metal that much anymore. I like Lavatory Love Machine, The Piper Never Dies, Mandrake and Sacrifice. There's three fast tracks, but they are all good, not 'just fast'! We'll enter the studio next week and work whenever producer Sascha Paeth and me come back from the Avantasia weekends."

"not too fast cause I really don't like pure Speed Metal that much anymore"

ha, I think that is a lot of what people listen to Edguy for.. I certainly don't listen to them for their mid and slow paced songs
still, maybe I will like this - some slow songs on the new Avantasia were great

Well if it is as well produced as "Hellfire Club" is, I think it will rock... But I have to say, I'm one of those bitter people who can't take a joke sometimes and didn't enjoy Rocket Ride so much... so hopefully they don't mess it all up too much in the studio, Looking forward to hearing the new material on the North American tour in the fall

I do like Rocket Ride and the new Avantasia album, I do think that Michael Kiske has been talking to Tobias too much though .

Hopefully its good...but it seems to likes of Theater of Salvation wont be heard again

Might be promising, but then again maybe not...I prefer the fast songs. Just have to wait and see

Hellfire Club and Rocket Ride are my favourite Edguy albums so I don't think this can be wrong

I liked Rocket Ride. Especially the song Save Me. Tobias writes what he knows is good so I bet it'll be as epic as always.

Hey, that's really fast even if he says the opposite. Most of the bands take much longer than Tobi/Edguy to produce a new album and many bring so much needless singles to "win" time and to have the fans sitisficed. This is a great new. I like Tobi's melodies, fast or slow tracks. He has already a great production, this time i would like to have a tangentially songwriting - i miss it in some songs of The Scarecrow and in many of Rocket Ride. I will buy it on the release date!

Looking forward to it. I hope it will be in the vein of Hellfire Club. That album was really good.

I like Edguy and Avantasia, each one has very good points but, my favorite songs are the the speedy ones, well, that's not completely true, I like also the slow ones, well, I don't care, in my opinion, Tobias Sammet's work has always great songs and great production. The problem is I think he is losing his touch quite fast, very, veeery fast.

The Piper Never Dies is a killer song, like other Edguy songs from Hellfire Club, one of the best albums of Edguy, still i think Rocket Ride was way hard-rockish to be true. My favourite songs are the fast ones indeed, so i have to wait for the end result and listen to the album. I have to give it a try, even knowing that the last Avantasia album, in terms of style resembled a lot like Rocket Ride. Hope the new album can be much better than Rocket Ride.
