Helloween - Are You Metal?

Biography

HELLOWEEN are known as the inventors of 'German Melodic-Speed-Metal’ and are creative
pioneers and one of the most successful Metal bands in personal union since their
beginnings in 1984. If there is a golden thread throughout more than 25 years of band
history, 13 studio albums, countless headliner tours around the globe and far more than 5
million sold records, then ... Read more in Amazon's Helloween Store

Editorial Reviews

Not for the first time in the past 20 years, Helloween have proved courage and musical vision. Declared dead repeatedly by the critics, the German melodic metal act continue to be at the top of the international metal scene at the beginning of the third decade of their existence, having repeatedly reinvented themselves stylistically without ever losing their typical trademarks. The musicians, Andi Deris (vocals), Michael Weikath (guitar), Markus Grobkopf (bass), Sascha Gerstner (guitar) and new addition Dani Loble (drums, ex-Rawhead Rexx), see their latest recording, Keeper Of The Seven Keys, The Legacy, in direct context with their 1987 and 1988 classics, consciously and confidently increasing the expectations of their fans of an doubtless unusual studio offering. This limited edition double CD set is packaged in a digipak. LE. 2005.

Very good album with the exception of a couple average songs.

Hmmmm. Always good to hear from HELLOWEEN, at their level of experience in songwriting and musicianship they can do no wrong...however they CAN stray from their metal roots (like Megadeth in RISK, or Priest in ANGEL OF RETRIBUTION). Although they use "Keeper of the 7 Keys" in the title, that was first and foremost a Metal Album (and one of their best, and the world's best). This is a Progressive Rock Album, long on hooks, melody and keyboard/synth fills, short on hammering metal riffs. All tracks are listenable but none of them really STOMP like their earlier works. The only link to "Keeper" seems to be in the soul-searching lyrics. Most Helloween fans will accept this but would rather listen to TREASURE CHEST or earlier works. Prog-rock fans should love this, and it's also 'safe' enough to get some radio play. It's growing on me, although I thought RABBIT DON'T COME EASY was better...K.K.

I wasn't holding much out for Helloween after Rabbit Don't Come Easy, which while not being the disaster some made it out to be, seemed fairly lacklustre. The departure of Roland Grapow and Uli Kusch, it seemed, had knocked that special something out of the band (although they then gave us the awesome Masterplan, so all is forgiven)

As a result, The Legacy was one of the biggest surprises I have ever had - truly Helloween have returned to show the world why they are considered the forefathers of this genre. This album combines the good production of RDC Easy, the epic scope of Keeper 1 and 2, mixed in with a little bit of wackiness and fun from Master Of the Rings.

Inevitable comparisons will be made to Keeper 1 and 2 - does it live up to the name? Well, give it time, but if you ask me, this easily holds its own. I have no idea what the original story was (nor do i care). Theres a few references to keys here and there, and some songs that clearly have nothing to do with anything. But then, neither Keeper albums stuck with the theme all the way through.

Kiske versus Deris? No contest. A few years ago I would have said otherwise, but Deris buys and owns Kiske with this album - the man has never, ever sounded so good. Like it or not, Deris, IS Helloween. He can't hit the high notes with the smoothness, but he can hit them, and when he does (quite frequently throughout the album) its all the more satisfying.

And the songs? This is the most consistent offering for a long time. The Opener, King For A 1000 Years, is an absolute monster of a song, one of the best they've ever done. Invisible Man, Pleasure Drone and Silent Rain are all similar - speedy rockers with catchy choruses, that would not be out of place on Master of the Rings, or Better That Raw.

Format: Audio CD
Keepers legacy is sure no keepers 1 & 2 but I pretty much loved it, The metal melody and deris's singing and songwriting all of that was not bad at all. When I first heard KOTSK the legacy I thought deris was going to be singing just the stuff from the classical KOTSK 1 & 2 albums but im glad he wrote his own songs on this album because I think this album would be a waste if thats all he did is just do other peoples songs. I have been a big fan of helloween for a long time and I never gave up on these guys but still I pretty much miss roland grapow and uli kusch after the dark ride and their replacements sascha gerstner and danny lobe were not bad at all but I don't think they can fill in for the stuff roland and uli created in helloween.

Any way good album can't explain much but for new fans I wouldn't recommend that you start here yet, I recommend the dark ride or better than raw first or the 2 classical keeper of the seven key albums 1 & 2 and stay far far away from chameleon and pink bubbles go ape never buy those albums.

I will keep this review short and sweet, this album is a must have for helloween fans, but not a must for the new listener. This album will not win any new fans for helloween. This will re-kindle the passions of many an old fan (like myself). The songs are overall fall short of the novelty of the first two Keeper albums, but still manage to grasp the key elements of great guitar solos, and an occasional catchy melody/chorus (IE Ms. God good lyrics, Silent Rain good intro riff), but the flow of the story/music isn't there for me. It seems very forced. Times are different, and helloween need to continue to evolve, and not get stuck in a rut like this. I give it a 4 out of 5 compared to their past few efforts, but if I were a fresh listener, only a 3 at best. New folks must be introduced to "I want out-live" or "Keepers Live" first, then The Best, The Rest, The Rare. After savoring those, then dive into Keepers I and II for the complete hook. Oh, and by the way, there was no need to make two discs out of thes (run time around 78 minutes for both combined). They could added the bonus tracks "Run(the name of your enemy)", "Revolution" or the Ms. God video on the standard usa cd and not just the Ms. God Single or Japanese Imports.

I've read a lot of reviews on this CD, and I honestly can not beleive some of the BS I've read. From the first time I listened to this CD I thought it was a pretty good recording, the songs were interesting and Andi Deris has a great voice. He's got better a much better vocal range than Michael Kiske will ever have (maybe that's why I don't own any CD's with him singing on them). Now a lot of reviewers I've noticed have been picking on the title that HELLOWEEN has taken for this release. I mean sure they could have eaily just named it Keepers of The Seven Keys part 3, but lets look a little deeper into the word 'LEGACY'. Now first off my thesaurus says a Legacy is: inheritance, birthright, bequest or a heritage. Now in my dictionary, it says that a Legacy is: a thing left to someone in a will, or handed down by a predecessor.. So the way that I understand it, is that the first keeper handed down something to the second keeper and in other words it's become a legacy. So in the future, lets try to concentrate more on the music that this great band has created and stop bantering about the title of the CD.
