Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

After two demos and Kingdom Of Madness in 1996, the German band Edguy is back with their second full-length release Vain Glory Opera. Written as a "metal opera" by rising power metal genius Tobias Sammet, this album should mark the carrier of young band Edguy. As Dominik Storch left the band after 'Kingdom Of Madness', the band welcomes a new drummer, adding Felix Bohnke to the current line-up. However, as written in the booklet of Vain Glory Opera, all drums on this album are played by Frank Lindenthal. On this 1998's record, Sammet is still handling bass guitar and keyboard parts while singing, the other members of Edguy remain Jens Ludwig and Dirk Sauer both playing guitars.
