If you’re looking for something quite different to your usual metal then Galactic Empire are for you. They’re a star wars band playing tracks off the Star Wars films but making them incredibly well written & catchy which I certainly didn’t expect. They’ve been kicking up some serious heat since they first released the first track and it’s no surprise that Rise Records/Velocity Records picked these incredible set of star wars musicians up! I’ve never heard something quite like it that keeps a punch & to the time of all the songs that were featured in the star wars films.
Easily my favourite track off this album has to be Duel Of The Fates due to the really punchy breakdown they’ve had through some parts of the songs while keeping a really melodic time signature, the drums compliment everything extremely well which is quite literally a masterpiece of anything I have ever heard in all my existence.
Another one that really catches my ear is the iconic Cantina Band track as it’s kept everything that made that song so iconic but added a bit of punch and clarity in it while the guitars are riffing it the drums are punching out above the weight of the melodic guitars to keep people entertained in every part of the song.
If you’re a avid star wars fan & metal fan like me then this album will meet every expectation you have for it. Something incredible has been worked on with these songs and they work better than I actually thought they would as a metal song but guess what, I was wrong!
If you're into Star Wars & metal then this album will meet all your expectations!
