刀鋒邊緣」(Edguy)是一個來自德國富爾達力量金屬樂團。

沿革[编辑]

刀鋒邊緣樂團由一群十四歲的學生 Tobias SammetJens LudwigDirk Sauer 以及 Dominik Storch一九九二年成立,團名《 Edguy 》其實是他們當時的數學老師 Edgar 先生的暱稱。直到一九九八年 Tobias Exxel 加入時,他們依然沒有 Bass 手,主唱 Sammet 當時用鍵盤作出 Bass 的旋律。

錄製了兩張 Demo 後,他們在一九九五年得到 AFM Records 一紙合約。最初的兩張專輯銷售不甚理想,但一九九八年的《 Vain Glory Opera 》(顛覆歌劇)專輯是他們的轉捩點。之後他們又創作了兩張專輯,德國廠牌 Nuclear Blast 於二○○四年簽下他們。

在二○○一、二○○二之間, Tobias Sammet 發行了他的個人作品《 Avantasia 》(金屬歌劇:七封印傳說),參與的不乏許多知名音樂人,無庸置疑是一部成功的金屬歌劇

樂風[编辑]

《 Edguy 》以簡潔明快的旋律搭配主唱 Sammet 的高音域,如同典型的歐洲力量金屬。他們的歌詞經常隱喻、暗示著一些哲學或社會的主題:順服( The Headless GameMysteriaKing of Fools )、教會的命令( The KingdomTheater of Salvation )以及現代文明的危險( NavigatorThe Devil and the Savant ),當表現這些主題時,《 Edguy 》使用超自然的、神祕學的詞句,不過也有些比較輕鬆、詼諧的歌曲( Das RehSave Us NowLavatory Love MachineLife And Times Of A Bonus Track )。刀鋒邊緣樂團沒有自許任何意識形態, Tobias Sammet 是這麼說的:「我們沒有政治,也沒有宗教色彩;至少在我們的歌曲當中,沒有明確的訊息教你該怎麼想事情。」( We are not political and we are not religious; at least there is no key message in our songs telling you what to think in terms of anything )。《 Edguy 》同時也在大部分的作品中採用較長的史詩式章節。

Hellfire Club revealed Edguy's interest in experimenting within music by integrating an orchestra into the production. The album featured a variation on Edguy's style, with a less grandiose, more traditional 重金屬音樂 approach being embraced. Their latest album, Rocket Ride, features even less symphonic and 力量金屬 elements, and is arguably more oriented towards 硬式搖滾.

Additional Information[编辑]

Edguy toured with the well known 力量金屬 band 龍族樂團 in early 2006 after the release of the latter's Inhuman Rampage album.

In July 2006, Edguy played at the Metalcamp festival in Slovenia, where they played a joke on fellow Germans Kreator, who played next. Tobias asked the audience to do him a favour: Once Kreator came on stage and played one song, the crowd was to start singing "Oh lay, oh lay". Not only did the crowd do this, but they continued to sing this following almost every song played by Kreator, prompting Mille Petrozza to stop and ask, "Is this still about the Edguy thing?"
