Edguy's first ever DVD is a fun look at this exceptional German power metal band. Released in conjunction with the Superheroes single and EP (a song to be featured on the upcoming full-length CD Rocket Ride), this DVD features the video created for the single, three songs shot live in Brazil from the 2004 South American tour, plus interviews, a 2004 tour documentary, backstage and studio footage, and much more. It's near 90 minutes of Edguy for the fan to savor.
While the video for "Superheroes" is your typical low budget metal video (very indicative of the videos seen throughout the 80's) the band's tongue-in-cheek style is very evident, and the abundance of gorgeous women running around certainly is entertaining. Plus the fact that "Superheroes" is a great, catchy song. The lengthy 2004 tour documentary though is reason enough to get this DVD. It gives you plenty of insight into the band, especially Tobias Sammet, who not only is the band's frontman, but also their spokesman and comical genius. Tobias is as energetic backstage and in front of the camera as he is on stage, and chances are he will only be recognized as more of a star after people see this DVD. Seeing fans from South America and Japan screaming after him and the rest of the band was almost surprising, showing just how popular Edguy is becoming in certain parts of the world. The three songs included from the Brazil show, "Mysteria", "Under the Moon", and "Navigator" sees the band performing on a large stage in front of a sizeable and rabid crowd, a far cry from the tiny stages and moderate crowds we see them play here in the US. The studio footage is also enjoyable, as we see the band working with legendary producer Sascha Paeth for the first time. Again, Tobias is the star of the show, as he keeps the band and engineers entertained and on their toes at all times.
Superheroes-Heroic DVD Edition will make a nice addition to your DVD collection. For the true Edguy fan, this is a must have, and hopefully someday the band will release the full Brazil show as well.
