This particular remaster includes the original album plus the judas single, and then to add extra incentive, they added 7 b sides to a second disc. The disc one has been re-mastered and sound crisp, and as fresh as the day they were originally penned. It is the second disc that I want to stress as the best part of the new edition, and makes the investment worth it. The two versions of ride the sky (remix and Live) are both nice, and murderer remix and guardian live are cool too, But the tracks Oernst Of Life and Metal Invaders from the DEATH METAL compilation are the weight of this remaster. This is the first time the track Oernst has been anywhere easly available to the public since 1984. I have heard this song only once before this, but I did not have the 50-100 dollars to buy the vinyl Death Metal record to get it. It is one of the first tracks ever layed down by helloween, and is a classic fast, loud metal song that is a unrecognized gem of the early mid 80's metal days. The liner notes of this one also starts the story of the fledgling band, and has an interview with Michael Weikath (as do all of the re-masters series) that fills in more interesting facts of the boys from Hamburg.
Overall, this is the best thing that happened to metal since the 1995 re-masters of the Iron Maiden collection (1998 remasters good, but not all the goodie tracks). I wouldn't even hesitate to say this is more a important remasters series for metal of this genre, because it give helloween to re-gain the international recognition it should have again. The Walls Of Jericho are the best place to see the origins of one of Germany's best exports.
So many Metal bands were started from this one CD.
The next 2 CDs after this one were the foundations of all Power Metal.
So many Metal bands were started from those 2 CDs as well.
(That's the history that CD).
(The music itself). Kai Hansen's singing is a little off here and there, but the guitar work is outstanding, and this is kick-you-in-your-face and take no prisoners Metal.
Helloween would never be this heavy ever again, even until today.
This was before Michael Kiske came into the band. He would come into the band on the next CD that came after this one.
Also, if you like the "Helloween EP" and "Walls of Jericho" CD, DEFINITELY make sure you get the "Batallions of Fear" CD and "Follow the Blind" CD from Blind_GuardiaN.
Those 2 Blind_GuardiaN CDs are a direct clone / exact replica of the "Helloween EP" and "Walls of Jericho" CD from Helloween. Even Kai Hansen sings some on the "Follow the Blind" CD from Blind_GuardiaN.
This is definitely going to become one of my favorite CDs.
