  • Helloween Top 5 Albums

    I just started writing a new article at About.com Heavy Metal where I will be choosing a different metal band once a month and discussing what I believe is their five best records. The first month is on power metal legends Helloween. Please check out the article and I would love to see what your picks are and what you think of mine.

    Thanks.

      It didn't make it for me. I don't think Kai's vocals were quite up to par yet. I think the Keeper records were a huge improvement especially with Kiske on board.

        Fair enough, I got into them when WOJ came out so I sort of favor that album the most, I liked the Keeper albums but kind of wish they had of stuck with the early sound of their debut ep and WOJ a bit longer. I lost interest after Kai left and the abysmal Pink Bubbles Go Ape came out so I cant comment on their subsequent releases but I did go and see them about 3-4 years ago and have to say it was one of the best gigs I've been to in the last 10 or 15 years.

          I also got into them with WOJ, which is very cool. The Keeper albums are so incredible for me and are clearly the most influential albums in the power metal genre. I am a huge fan of the Deris era, if you aren't familiar with them you should check them out. On my article I pick recommended tracks from each record I selected and they are all great tunes. Listen to Bells of the Seven Hells and Before the War, they are classics. I saw the Kiske lineup live back in the day right after Kai left the band when Part II came out but I haven't seen them live since. I need to see them live again. Are you a Gamma Ray fan?

              Helloween is one of the few pure Power Metal bands I thoroughly enjoy. Although I like the Kiske era albums more, I prefer Deris' voice.

              1) Keeper 1
              2) Walls Of Jericho
              3) Keeper 2
              4) Master Of The Rings
              5) The Dark Ride

              On a sidenote, 7 Sinners was a kick-ass album. Probably the heaviest they've ever done.

                1. Keeper 2
                2. Keeper 1
                3. Walls of Jericho
                4. The Time of the Oath
                5. Master of the Rings

                The last truly good one was Better Than Raw. Everything after The Dark Ride has been pretty terrible, IMO.
