German power metallers Edguy have just revealed the title and release date of their upcoming album, the follow-up to 2011's controversial Age Of The Joker. The album will be named Space Police - Defenders Of The Crown and will hit stores on April 18th via Nuclear Blast Records.
Here you have the official statement by the band: "On April 18th Edguy will release their tenth studio album Space Police - Defenders Of The Crown. Last weekend some journalists had the chance to listen to the album for the first time and the press reaction was amazing. There are several good reasons to believe that this album is going to be one of the strongest and heaviest Edguy albums of all time. More details are going to be revealed soon."
I'm somehow interested in listening this. Last time I cared over an Edguy album was Hellfire Club, but all the fuzz Tobi's been doing over this might deserve a check. Title is ridiculously Edguyish too . Won't keep in mind the press opinion as they probably just got payed by the label to jack off over the album in some review....
My expectation are low after the last two albums. Don't know if Sammet still has a trick or two to pull out something at least decent 'cause I do not expect another Mandrake or Hellfire Club, heck, I do not even want a similar one.
