EDGUY – SUPERHEROES EP
Edguy is a Power Metal band from Germany. “Superheroes” is a 6 song EP that showcases one of the best Power Metal bands of today, with speed and precision these songs are energy packed and melodic. Tobias Sammet can certainly write music and sing, I like to compare his vocals to Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden. “Superheroes (epic version)” is the acoustic version of “Superheroes”, both found on this album. I find that both the electric and acoustic versions of this song are fabulous. The electric version being super charged with an almost grandiose delivery on vocals, (Power Metal style), the acoustic being toned down with more feeling and emphasis on the true meaning of the lyrics. Edguy plays with enthusiasm and true Power Metal spirit, it definitely comes across this way on “Superheroes”. The liner notes are top notch, (10 pages worth), with band photos and full lyrics and credits. This EP is a must for all Edguy and Power Metal fans. For Metal and Hard Rock fans in general, Edguy is worth a listen for the vocals alone.
