I have been a poor student for a long time, but recently I have started to have an income. When I found out the remasters of the helloween albums were coming out, I bought them all immediately. I have been waiting to do this for a long time, and now is the perfect time for everyone.

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.

This album is very different than anything Helloween has put out ever since. But this, in my opinion is their gem. This is straight up Speed metal, and its damn right amazing. The guitars are so melodic, the bass makes my skin crawl, and the pounding drums just make the whole sound elevate to a next level. On Walls of Jericho, you get to hear Kai Hansen singing his brains out and he does an amazing job at it. "Ride the Sky" is one of the most amazing songs I have ever heard, the guitars are really melodic. "reptile" has always been one of my favorites, on the chorus part, you can hear the bass follow Kai's voice, that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up! "Heavy Metal is the law" has got to be the coolest Heavy Metal anthem ever, this song would make even Man O War bow down to them. In short, you have to get this album to understand why so many years after its release, it is still regarded as one of the best speed metal albums ever. (The review on the bottom is also me, only that first I had done it anonymous).

This is the foundation where ALL Speed Metal started at.

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 debut cd from, in my opinion, Gods of speed metal. Their signer, which is now with gamma ray, delivers very hardcore sounding vocals. Thier bassist is incredible and is backed up with some incredible guitar riffs and duets. Make sure you get this cd with the extra track judas because the song is well worth it. With great songs such as stralight, warrior, gorgar, and judas, this is a must have for your metal collection. Don't be mistaken though, the other songs rock to. You will fall in love with this cd istantly. If you like iron maiden but you also like a little more edge to your music, look no further.

The vocals are a bit scratchy and hard to understand, but this album is totally brillaint. There isn't a single track on it that I don't like. It's harder than Helloween's later CDs for sure; this may be a good or bad thing depending on the person. When you want something with nonstop metal power, this is the CD to get. The inclusion of an entire separate EP and a bonus track in addition to the original album makes it that much better.
This is definitely going to become one of my favorite CDs.

This is an amazing album. The first Helloween album I ever heard was Dark Ride. This album is much darker and more powerful. If you like speed metal or thrash this album is a must buy. Probably their best. The newer albums seem toned down a little bit. I suggest this album and both Keeper albums as well as Dark Ride and Rabbit Dont Come Easy. Helloween is definately one of the most underrated bands around today. If you like metal or shred pick this album up!!!
