Custard  


There must be a reason why a band would name themselves after a dessert, but I have yet to find that reason. Must be something lost in the translation. On to the music -- Custard is a German power/speed metal band, straight from the Gamma Ray / HammerFall / Helloween school. All the standards of the genre are here, from the high-pitched vocals, to the galloping riffs, to the requisite lyrical themes, to the singalong choruses. It's hard to praise a band that's so confined to a given style, yet it's also hard to fault the band since they do perform the style well and with conviction. Fans of the aforementioned bands will want to add these guys to their collection.
