Edguy is a power metal band from Germany that prides itself on the harrowing power of rock. With soaring Iron Maiden-style vocals and intense double bass work, combined with wailing guitar shredding, Edguy has managed to latch onto a distinct sound that has risen the group to prominence amongst a dedicated group of fans. The band has been making music since 1992, but the group's throwback tone sounds like it belongs amongst the early 80s metal scene.
After 1990s alt-rock monster Nirvana disbanded, Dave Grohl (the band's drummer) decided to strike out on a solo career. For the first studio release by this Grohl-helmed band dubbed the Foo Fighters, Grohl played all the instruments himself and laid down all the vocals, too. Slowly over time the Foo Fighters solidified until it became a complete rock group capable of dishing out some potent rock n' roll songs.
