Edguy - Superheroes DVD - 2005 - Nuclear Blast

Track Listing
1. Superheroes (Video)
2. Mysteria (Live)
3. Under The Moon (Live)
4. Navigator (Live)
The best hard rock/power metal band has returned once again, this time rising from their polished and well-kept throne to deliver an EP simply called "Superheroes". The audio portion of "Superheroes" contained six cuts, one of which was a cover tune and the rest all original, brand new studio songs. To accompany that particular release the band released this "Superheroes" DVD, which contains tons and tons of Edguy footage sure to please every one of their adoring fans.

For me personally these band DVDs really give you a window to the soul, with so many of these featuring in depth coverage of the band's concerts, backstage antics, interviews, photos, etc. This release does all of that, with this being the very first video released by the band. The disc contains live concert footage from Brazil, including fan favorites like "Under The Moon" and "Mysteria". Along with those quality live performances fans are treated to the option of Stereo or the ever popular 5.1 Surround Sound. Those of you fortunate enough to have massive home theater systems will pretty much be able to experience a live concert in your living room.

Beyond the live performances comes a studio report on the making of "Superheroes", a making of feature on the new video "Superheroes", rare band photos, and exclusive interviews with the band members. Along with that comes the most important feature in my honest opinion, that being a "road report" chronicling the band's travels and appearances all over the globe. We get treated to a running commentary from Tobias and company as they show us their ventures in Germany, Japan, America, and countless other countries. Along with the band commentary you will pick up other band's comments on Edguy, with groups like Stratovarius interviewed for this feature.

Bottom Line - It is great to finally have a piece of video footage to go with so many great Edguy albums! This is a must have for any fan interested in getting to know the band on a more personal level.

Maximum Metal Rating Legend - Click for Full Details
5 Excellent - Buy it and say a prayer to the metal gods that you were tuned on to this masterpiece. A classic.
4-4.5 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a clunker or a lacking somewhere to keep it from perfection. You won't feel bad about dropping some bones on these.
3.5 Good - Most of the record is good, but there may be some filler. This is the OK range where you'd search for the record on sale or used.
3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio. Could show skills but be dull overall. Redeeming qualities for indy bands are effort and passion. Majors that don't try or suck outright end up here.
2-2.5 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors. There is much better metal out there.
1-1.5 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible or an otherwise waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.
