Question: what makes a great band? Answer: great albums! So after the not really well acclaimed "Vain Glory Opera", the German power metal band Edguy had to reach another level of quality to interest the masses. Well, 1999's "Theater Of Salvation", the title says it all. That was the album that made them enter the very protected circle of famous power metal bands. Leaded by their extravagant front man and singer Tobias Sammet, this young band played a traditional power metal. However, their songs are something more complex than the usual cliches about power metal
