Bassist Tobias Exxel loves to have a laugh – and so do Edguy. Fresh from a US tour, Tobi sits down and chats with Metal As Fuck about our (and seemingly their) favorite profane expression, expressing our enthusiasm for a certain music genre.

Tobias Exxel misses the United States. “I’m sitting at my home in Germany,” he tells me. “It’s cold, the weather isn’t very good.
