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.
But with Helloween? It stays fresh. When they experiment, they come up with a masterpiece. When they do what they do best, they continue to improve. Straight Out of Hell = case in point.
Straight Out of Hell is a wonderful display of all the best things about Helloween. You can clearly tell that they are all master performers. Great guitarists, superb singer and deft drummer. They're usually not show-offs. That is to say, they do things which are technically difficult, but the average listener who has no experience playing an instrument would never be able to guess just how hard it really is. They want to create a good sound, first and foremost, not wow you with their prowess. And they do! Their songs are contain a pop appeal, in which they nail catchy choruses and melodies that are easy to follow, but at the same time, they retain an underlying complexity for those of us who need something more. It's all there, and this album in particular delivers in spades.
I've always been a Helloween fan. I picked up their first album in 1999, about 14 years after it originally came out, and since then, I've been hooked. Some of their albums didn't entirely catch on with me immediately except for a few songs, but this one? I sat and listened to it all the way through as soon as it came in the mail. It took a few listens to fully digest. It was...wow.
Get this. Get it now.
