As an initial listen, this album is pure genius. Musically this album is phenomenal with impeccable instrumentation. But I see the popularity of it being short lived. After all, Austrian Death Machine was a great fad while it lasted, like most gimmicks. How much music can you make off metal Star Wars covers? Galactic Empire has already covered the most iconic of themes on this album, is it worth making a follow-up? How long can a band tour on this material before people get bored of it? I like the idea and the covers, but I’m hoping these are purely for fun and to show off how technical these musicians can be.
