Edguy have entered the Gate Studios in Wolfsburg to record the follow-up of their chart breaker album "Rocket Ride". The new album will be produced by Sascha Paeth and is scheduled to be released in November 2008. The album will be entitled "Tinnitus Sanctus".

Tobias Sammet has got the following news in store: "The title just refers to the wall of sound that will bulldoze you. Let's be modest: We have ten extraordinary songs and this new album is gonna be our ticket to the hall of fame alongside with Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and AC/DC. There won't be a hit-single this time, not even a flop-single, haha; not only because most songs are too long for a single, but also because for a single we had to produce way more stuff, lose money and need a time frame to release it. The album would come later then and that would suck. For the record: Musically, we don't go back to the roots. It's not the "Legacy of Mandrake part 2" and it's not a little brother of Rocket Ride either. It's a new album and we've set off to new horizons once more! The stuff sounds really broad, very anthemic, heavy and ballsy. We've kept our trademarks and still there are a lot of elements that are different to anything we've done before. I know what some fans may think, because if my favourite bands would have come up with statements like that I would have been scared to death, but in our case I am sure this could be the album we'll be measured by in the future."

O really It'll be so good?? It will be as good as The Scarecrow xD xD xD

Please don't make any albums like that xD, instead of being scarecrow it as a scarecrowds xD

The old stuff is amazing, the new stuff is good but not as good as the old Edguy. I hope the new album is not like the last one, Tobias seems to have turned into a Michael Kiske later saying he isnt just metal and wants to do this and that blabla. Not interested! He said himself that Avantasia was for stuff he doesnt do in Edguy, so stick the hard rock roots in Avantasia

I'm just hoping for a great album... honestly (please don't crucify me metal gods) I liked Rocket Ride. SURE it was not as good as fucking hellfire, Mandrake, etc... but it had some pretty damn good songs. I hope they make this album better though, either way I bet it will be enjoyable.

Didn t he say something similar for rocket ride too???
juanopereira - 29.06.2008 at 09:37  
I like the bands that try to do new things in every album like Edguy. I think the album will be great!
