#57 - Tears of the Mandrake - Edguy - Mandrake

Back to back German Power Metal. Edguy is a bit more tongue in cheek than most metal bands I like. They do not take themselves too seriously, and many of their songs suck quite frankly. Anyway, many of their songs kick serious ass too, so while they will never have the best album of any given year, they still have many great moments. Tears of the Mandrake is one such moment.

T-Bone, I totally agree with you about Edguy. I like them, but there is always some junk on their albums. You're right about them being very tongue in cheek. For some reason something about them reminds me of Van Halen With DLR. Not their music but their attitude maybe.

SB - Good observation. I never really thought about it, but they do have that Van Halen vibe, maybe that combined with another less serious element.
