Post Any fans of Edguy?
I NEVER see this band mentioned here. I'm not much of a power metal fans except for the early Helloween and Blind Guardian albums, but I gave Edguy's Rocket Ride a listen today and was pleasantly surprised. I got a big time Helloween feel from it, especially the early Hanson/Kiske material.
For the fans here, what should I listen to next?

I dig tons of their stuff. Great band.

Pretty sure Deathstalker is a fan. Thought he picked one of theirs up when he was here in June.

I listened to a bit of the new album and sounded pretty good.

Great band. their first two were a bit dull....run o' the mill power metal. but they really upped the ante and began kicking ass around 2004, or so. Basically anything Sammett touches is great.

same is true of Avantasia. first two are dull but everything after has been stellar. :beer:

Mandrake is mandatory. Hellfire club is necessary.

Fun bubblegum metal. Not my daily bread, but I'm glad it exists.

Avantasia have also not done much for me in quite a while. Discount Ayreon.

Understood. many folks feel the same way.
But I'm a sucker for melody and they tend to deliver that in spades.
