To my ears, this album is a perfect example of utilizing every instrument without sounding tiresome, complacent, or self-indulgent. Just exactly perfect.
Those riffs and powerful rhythms.....The drums - man, Dani Loeble is one hell of a machine! Andi Deris has the right combination of power, menace, and emotion that makes each track all the more convincing. The genius of Michael Weikath's song-structuring skills is outstanding. Sascha Gertsner & Marcus Grosskopf round out what is an awesome band.
Whoever was in charge of selecting the track order has got it right with the flow of the album. Starting the album with Nabataea is a stroke of genius as it contains Deris at his best delivering a very memorable chorus to set off an album you could say is a `chorus-fest' which never gets boring. I too have also taken advantage of downloading the Japanese-only bonus track `No Eternity' - a worthy addition that should have been on the album anyway.
I find it too hard to pick highlights from a consistently strong collection. It's one of those special albums that are excellent to sing along with whilst driving. My car audio system is going to take a pounding in the years to come.
I luv it!
Give it an open-minded go and make up your own mind.

Straight Out of Hell
are the track that I like the most.
Well done Andy Derris catchy lyrics and M. Weikath & S. Gerstner riffs sounds great, this is Power Metal at its best sound.
Helloween’s fourteenth proper album is fifteen tracks of epic power metal, filled with fifteen tracks, and none of them are interludes, skits, or even anything less than full-fledged songs that are less than three minutes and twelve seconds long (the only exception to this rule being “Wanna Be God,” which is dedicated to the memory of Queen singer Freddy Mercury.) As a result, “Straight Out Of Hell” can come across sounding a little overwhelming to some listeners, as it is a bit of a horsepill of an album, and is most certainly not anything really accessible or commercial. But this is just Helloween’s way of doing things: It is their own innovative stamp on songwriting. Hence, the songs are very smartly written, and it seems almost a little redundant to say that they are brilliantly, expertly-well performed, too.
The record begins with “Nabatea.” This propulsive set opener gets by mainly on crunchy speed metal riffing, Bruce Dickinson-worshipping vocals, and huge, soaring choruses, although some nicely harmonic soloing also finds its way into the mix, as does plenty of rhythmic and galloping drum beats.Read more ›
