Helloween

What do you think about this band? IMO one of the best bands, not only German bands, but generally. I think The Time Of The Oath is their best album but Keeper I and II are metal-classics, which were the foundation of European Power Metal and Speed Metal.

Let me know what you think about them  Very Happy

I'm a fan of all eras.

except for Chameleon and Pink Bubbles Go Ape.

Keepers 1 & 2 are awesome!

Walls of Jericho is highly underrated.

and the best Deris albums IMO is Better Than Raw, and The Dark Ride

Pretty cool band, was among my favourite bands 2 years ago. Seen them 3 times live and i've got a couple of vinyls and a couple of cd's of them. Nowadays it's quite rare that I listen to them though, but maybe I should someday take a Helloween special and listen to the albums i've got.

Their first EP is for sure the best they have done. But as for full-lenght albums I say Better than Raw or Keeper I.

"Walls of Jericho" is still thier best album  Laughing . I own all of them, although I must say I don't like all of thier material. Most of it's just hit and miss, exept for theoriginal. I't amazing.

What can I say, beside that I fucking love Helloween, especially the Kiske-era.

Favorite albums are Keeper 1, 2, The Legacy and The Dark Ride.
And Pink Bubbles Go Ape is very, very underrated.

But "Heavy Metal Hamsters" is on Pink Bubbles Go Ape.

There are some fellows soft and mellow
Sitting in the field and play like hell
No one knows the way it goes
But all the songs they play they sound so well

Tonight we go to see the heavy metal hamsters
It must feel nice to be a heavy metal hamster
Nothing sets you free like our heavy metal hamsters

A 20th century fox came by
A gold tipped cigarette high in his jaws
Contracts, pds, nose-bags, tv-shows
And everything with no remorse

Things are settled now for our heavy metal hamsters
Fame up to your brows, oh heavy metal hamster
A previously unknown lifestyle heavy metal hamster

The sweet taste of success is strong
And everything inside goes wrong you see
With colored furs, sunglasses
Tons of nuts to eat, they don't feel free

What is wrong with our heavy metal hamster?
Look what they have done our heavy metal hamsters
Where is the field to run for our heavy metal hamsters
Some things are left undone for our heavy metal hamsters.

But seriously I totally dig Helloween, one of my all time favorites. Yes these two albums were there low points but they really weren't all that bad. Every bad has low albums some are ALL bad some are only part bad. Metallica for example has a couple of low point albums only one of which is ALL bad that being St Anger. Other wise they have good and bad songs on the "bad" albums (both Helloween and Metallica that is), in my opinion.

Wonder if they were listening to the Chipmunks when they wrote it, maybe they didn't want to plagiarize so they made them hamsters instead of munks. I have no idea. Either way they must have been wasted or really drunk. Razz
mindcrime

The Wicked One

Doesn't save the album though
