Galactic Empire & Mac Sabbath To Tour In 2018

Though I am trying to avoid all notifications with the words “Star Wars” in them until I can get to the theater and see the new film, this transmission did slide by our scanners but thankfully it was only a tour announcement. A tour announcement of AWESOME proportions of course. Check it out.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Having seen both of these bands in the recent months I can say that I do believe that the audience is in for a high calorie geek laden treat with this one. Mac Sabbath delivers that Fast Food Metal like no other, and if the Dark Side of The Force is with you, then you will be at your nerdish best as Galactic Empire delivers the galaxies favorite ditties. Each of these bands has some interesting merchandise and will leave you clamoring for more. Trust me on that one because as strange as these acts might seem, there is something truly gratifying about the fun-filled presentation. What do you think about this tour? Let me know down in the comments section below. Now its back onto my absolute blockade of Facebook since I cannot get to the film until Monday or Tuesday.

A few months ago there was a pretty healthy buzz going on for probably one of the weirdest bands I had learned about in some time, and this is coming from a guy who has interest in bands that dress like monsters and various anime characters. I am talking about the guys in Galactic Empire and I shared their video right here on the website in a post that you can review HERE. Now I just wanted to talk a little more about the accompanying single for the video since it is straight music without no dialogue like we found in the video clip. Here we go.
