After months of teasing, finally Edguy are giving fans the chance to listen to the first song off their upcoming album Space Police - Defenders Of The Crown, that will be released on April 18th via Nuclear Blast Records. The German heavyweights have, in fact, just shared the lyric video for "Sabre & Torch", which you can enjoy below.

What are your expectations for Space Police, after hearing this brand new track?

That's not bad at all. Of course, originality is UNDER NINE THOUSANDS!!!, but the overall track is better and heavier than what I expected

I like it a lot, especially the main guitar riff.
ManiacBlasphemer - 14.03.2014 at 22:01  
Not bad, but it still gets a minus for the bad cover and the bad album title... if musicaly speaking, the other tracks will be like this one, then Edguy might still have something to say... if not... it's not like I got high expectations anyway.

It's very reminiscent to "Invoke The Machine", but I still like it!

I'm still taking Tobi's comment about this album being the heaviest Edguy album to date with a pinch of salt, though...

I'm kind of suprised. Cool song.

Darth Vader at 4:00?

Everything went worse than expected...

i am sorry, but i simply cannot adore this song after all what Tobi produced in past years...nothing at least a bit interesting in this track for me...

Yeah, but they'll probably call it Varth Dader in order to avoid being forced to change their name to Edguy of Fire.

This is better than I was expecting, definitely! I love the heavy riffing, and the catchy chorus. That riff before the solo is actually a bit of a monster! Hopefully the rest of the album will be as good, if it is, it will be their best since "Hellfire Club".

Great track. Let's hope the rest of the album will be like this (or better).

Yeah, i had the same feeling! Not a bad one but still I prefer "Invoke the machine"

Better than anything they have done in a while. Still sounds someway from Mandrake days, but a positive step.

I don't know if it is just me, but I can't help but think I am going to hate anything from Tobi and am finding it difficult to objectively listen and possibly like it if it is good.

This is better than I thought it would be. If the rest of the album will be like this, then it will a good album. The cover and title stll suck.

Listen to the clip from the song Love Tyger on Youtube. I know its short, but it sounds a bit lacklustre.

Well, it is a bit of sleaze rock fluff, but pretty much what I expected from that song just from seeing the title of it. But, "Hellfire Club" had the ridiculous "Lavatory Love Machine" on it, and that didn't prevent it from being a brilliant album, so I'm going to reserve judgement until I hear the full album. When I saw the tracklist, I pretty much knew what I was going to get from songs with titles like "Love Tyger", and "Do Me Like A Caveman" (I haven't heard anything from the latter track, but I'll be amazed if it isn't a "comedy" rock number).

So those two tracks, and the cover of Falco's "Rock Me Amadeus" aside, it was always the seven remaining tracks that I was really interested in giving a listen (though I am curious to here their take on that Falco number lol). If the other 6 tracks I haven't mentioned are as good as, or even better than "Sabre And Torch", then I'll be happy with the album. I'm also interested in hearing the two new songs which are bonus tracks on the limited edition.

A really cool track, funny as hell. The chorus is catchy and powerful. Surely it will be a killer opening for any of their live gigs.

However I'm still curious about the album as a whole; apart from fast tracks and ballads, I'd like to hear something longer and well produced such as Eyes of the Tyrant, Theater of Salvation or The Pharao.

Good song for the morning
Iamawalker - 24.03.2014 at 16:50  
This song is surprisingly heavy, and also killer! The guitars sound terrific. I love this! Sammet pushes himself slightly more as well, which is cool.

Why do I feel like I've heard this song on many previous Edguy albums?
