BravePicks 2014 - EDGUY's Space Police: Defenders Of The Crown  #18

Drum roll please … or maybe a hearty dose of blast-beats! Tis the season to commence the good, bad and ugly of 2014! Of course we’re talking about BravePicks 2014, where all the staff put their collective metal minds together to build the ultimate lists including individual Top 20s (new studio albums ONLY),  Top 5 Brave Embarrassments, Top 3 Concerts, What/Who Needs To Stop In 2015? and Metal Predictions For 2015.

18) EDGUY – Space Police: Defenders Of The Crown (Nuclear Blast)

 

BraveWords scribe Carl Begai says that Space Police is a record cocked and loaded with feelgood speed and power metal anthems the moment you press "play," slowing down only once along the way to catch its breath.

 

"Everybody seems to be very positive about it, which is funny because although we did work hard on the album it wasn't long term," Sammet told BraveWords in May. "We didn't have time to think twice about things. It was a very subconscious album, so to speak, very instinctive. We didn't want to waste time, we wanted to show people what we have to offer. The first song on the album ('Sabre & Torch') was the first song written. When I got back from the Avantasia tour last August I knew the Edguy fellows would be waiting for me to come back and eager to make a new album. I didn't want to be asked 'When do you think we can start working on a new album?' I'm the one that asked the question as soon as I got back (laughs). I didn't have any material but in September we booked the studio for early November, which gave us two months to write all the material. We decided that if it worked out that way, great, and if it didn't we would just postpone everything and take the time we needed because we didn't want to come out with a rushed crap album."
