Although they have been around for awhile, Galactic Empire had just done singles videos of Star Wars covers, with them dressed in generic Star Wars-ish costumes. And they were shredding like Qui Gon Jinn taught them.

Well, a few months back they just happened to get signed to Rise Records, and they just released a full album of Star Wars covers, metal style.

And it's GLORIOUS.

I know John Williams is considered a God because of his work on the films score, but there is something that just feels right with the songs as metal. It adds on edge to them, gives them a slight ominousness that I didn't even realize was missing.

I'm going to link a few more tracks below, but if that were the REAL Cantina Band, there would have been a moshpit in Mos Eisley.
