Galactic Empire -- Star Wars/Metal Cover Band
« on: June 6, 2017, 04:27 PM »
So the other day I was looking around the web for some Star Wars music to listen to and stumbled across a band calling themselves "Galactic Empire" with an album's worth of cuts from various Star Wars soundtracks, all played in the style of a classic '80s heavy metal band. It was a really fun listen, and I wound up buying the album off Amazon to support the endeavor.

Standouts are the Imperial March and the Cantina Band. They hit the main prequel themes, too, but give deeper due to the OT stuff--I was surprised to find The Asteroid Belt cue on there, but it works great. No Disney-era stuff.

If you like the old metal (I am pretty sure a lot of us here do.) and appreciate the soundtracks, I suggest you give them a listen.

Any one else hear about these guys?
