This one holds a special place in our hearts, as guitarist Jens Ludwig of Edguy was one of our first interviews posted (read) on Live Metal. Well, “Hair Force One” is back with a new album, with everything over-the-top and lovable that is Edguy. This first track kind of reminds me of Judas Priest’s “Painkiller.” Check it out inside and look for more Edguy on Live Metal real soon.

Self-described as “heavy, melodic, tongue-in-cheek, and unfashionable,” German superhero heavy metal quintet Edguy have taken their trademarked sense of humor and neatly packaged it into their eleventh studio album, Space Police: Defenders Of The Crown, which is due out in North America on April 29th.

Featuring photos of Edguy doin’ their live thang in front of concert audiences, the lyric video for the high-energy track “Sabre & Torch” can be viewed below:

When asked which Space Police song comes closest to what fans enjoy most about Edguy, the band’s fun-loving frontman Tobias Sammet shares:

“Edguy is hard to label. The whole album is Edguy from start to finish, but if I had to pick one at this very moment, I’d go for ‘Sabre & Torch.’ Or maybe ‘Love Tyger.’ Well, or ‘Space Police.’ You see? It’s hard. This is the album we’re gonna be measured against in the future, and hopefully the rest of the music world, too!  Ha ha!”

The jewel-case version of Space Police: Defenders Of The Crown can be pre-ordered now from the Nuclear Blast USA Webshop.
