THE NEW ALBUM: "MEMORABLE AND NOBLE"!
A few weeks ago a few journalists were given the chance to listen to a couple of songs from the forthcoming new Edguy masterpiece "Age Of The Joker" (in stores on August 26th). Below you can read what the journalists had to say right after the musical journey:

"Soft and heavy, memorable and noble. The "Age Of The Joker" is a really vivid age." Rock Hard (Ger) / Andreas Stappert

"Surprising and renowned moments follow one another. Edguy flip the bird at the Metalworld and record the album they want to. Cool!" - Metal Hammer (Ger) / Marc Halupczok

"Edguy step the Blues - variety is a top priority on "Age Of The Joker".  Heavy (Ger) / Martin Römpp

"A supremely diversified album, top-notch in both fields: high musical aspirations and entertainment." Rock It (Ger) / Andreas Schöwe

"Edguy master the balancing act between aspirations and catchiness with honors. A grand display of fireworks with catchy chorusses, great melodies and exciting details galore. Heavy guitars, excellent vocals and exciting songs make "Age of The Joker" a hit." Legacy (Ger) / Andreas Schulz

"First impression? Amazing! You keep waiting for something that you have heard before, but I just couldn't find anything. Trademarks? Yes! Repetition or copy? No! To sum it up: Amazing album, but I didn't expect anything other than that!" Hardline (Ger) / Jenny Klünder

"It’s time to rock the charts again!“ Scream (Nor) / Anders Odsberg

"A suitable epic mix of Edguy’s power metal roots, contemporary rock choruses and enough experimentation to keep things fresh.“ Powerplay (UK) / Sam Khaneka

"In between two massive epic length tracks, lies a paradise of catchiness. Their experimental parts are skinning, but they took care about proper needs of the fans in accessible songs as well.“ Rock Tribune (BE) / Vera Matthissens

"The "Age of the Joker" album is a really solid, well composed, filled with variations, work. It will most certainly be a highlight of the year for all Heavy Metal fans. Much better than "Tinnitus Sanctus" and with an interesting 80s rock touch. Edguy follows its own way, and this is good.“ Rock Hard (F) / Francois Blanc

"Very different, but very similar to anything they’ve done before. They will surprise you… again.“ Metal Hammer (ES) + The Metal Circus (ES) / Sergi Ramos

"Cool and funny record with Sascha on board. Everybody can expect smash songs from heavy Metal to Folk Medieval Music. This is Edguy that we love. Tobi is a unique metal person!" Spark (CZ) / David Havlena

EDGUY ARE IN THE STUDIO TO RECORD A NEW ALBUM
After a successful world tour with more than 100 concerts all over the globe in support of their latest release "Tinnitus Sanctus" in 2008, Edguy have entered the studio to record a new album. Still under the influence of their arena tour as special guests of "the Scorpions" and the latest "Avantasia" world tour (featuring Tobias Sammet and Felix Bohnke), Edguy feel it's about time to squeeze their energy on tape in a recording studio again. This time the band has chosen the famous Peppermint-Park in Hannover (Scorpions, Phil Collins), according to the band " a recording temple with a tremendously great sounding room". Tobias comments: "We have chosen the Peppermint Park to record the basics there. I had done a few little bits and pieces for Avantasia there, but it's so great to record drums and stuff like Hammond B3 with a big bad fat mean Leslie there. The room is big and the sound is mean! We were always striving for a powerful but natural sound. I guess we had a good sound recently, but I think there is always room to improve. The more I listen to what's going on in the Heavy Metal world these days, the more I long for drums that sound like drums. I want them to sound powerful without sounding like Atari. Sascha and I came to the conclusion that we have to start from scratch and do things the way they have to be done, not the fashionable way. I don't want a distorted master-copy, just so it is loud enough on an iPhone or on PC-speakers. If you talk to your most fancy producer he will say something like: "Well, it's the sign of the times, you have to be able to compete in the loudness war..." What the fuck?! If I want it to be loud I turn up the stereo. I want dynamics, room, a real big sound, not that distorted trendy compression. Why don't we all move back a little and record great sounding music, not loud sounding music? Do a Google search for "loudness war" and you'll see what I mean. Whatever, the new songs sound great, we have thirteen of them, and we'll pick maybe ten and put them on the album. We have anthemic melodies, although it's not kitsch. When you record anthemic music, you tend to be dangerously close to kitsch, it's a fine line and I think we balance on that fine line pretty well. To cut a long story a little insignificantly shorter: I just think it is great, and that's what counts. Real music, you know? We'll keep you informed, if you want it or not! ;-) - Tobi
