Title: “Superheroes – Heroic DVD Edition”
Label: Nuclear Blast Records
Release Date: 10/18/2005
Genre: Power Metal
Leave it to Tobias Sammett and his fellow members of EdGuy to deliver us another teaser/sampler of their upcoming music. The band did this with the EP “King Of Fools” last year prior to releasing “The Hellfire Club”. While this might seem an annoying precedence the band does give us something worthwhile when it comes down to it. Other groups might release an upcoming track with existing and previously heard live tracks or “hits” from the bands back catalog. EdGuy delivers unheard of studio and live tracks that will not be present on the release which makes this something you want to buy as well. The DVD features the new single from the forthcoming album “Rocket Ride” and is entitled “Superheroes”. It’s a fun track and the video is just simply full of the ridiculous humor that Tobias Sammett possesses. It is also loaded with Playboy bunny types, so he is clearly aiming to have this video be easily remembered. The song is very catchy and flows along the same lines as the last few singles the band has released. Essentially if you enjoyed “King Of Fools” you should enjoy “Superheroes”.
In addition to the video clip we get three live performances from a show in Brazil taken from “The Hellfire Club” tour. I have to admit I enjoyed these segments the most as I had just seen EdGuy performing with Hammerfall and their level of play was still very fresh in my mind. This is a great chance for those who have never experienced the band live to get to enjoy some songs delivered to excellence. Of course having three tracks like this is also a teaser and makes one desire a full-length concert DVD. Let’s hope that this is one of the bands eventual plans. There is also a worthwhile and enjoyable making of the video documentary and a few exclusive interviews and photo galleries. A fun experience all around, and I am looking forward to the new CD very much as a result.
