Helloween have been forging a new path for themselves for many years, seemingly cursed in the way that anything with the Helloween name on it will be compared to those influential Keeper... albums, and almost every time the new offering inevitably falls short.

7 Sinners is the third album with the current line-up, and the first since The Dark Ride that has been able to square up to the Keeper... albums and come off looking pretty good. The reputation of those early albums will never be matched again, but Helloween are determined to continually prove their worth as the genre's kings and still as a legitimate and current power metal band.

Helloween are back with their best album definitely at least since The Dark Ride. This is heavier stuff, modern, and certainly catchy without being cheesy. This will be one of the albums of the year for all those concerned.

I dunno where you've been looking, but I've got them in good quality mp3 format. PM me if interested


Where on earth did you get them from? Maybe its from the same place I was trying to download them from...

Interested? Of course Im interested! lol PM on its way, and thank you!


@Bonus Tracks: The bonus tracks for Gambling With The Devil were top quality songs. And could easily have been on the album itself. Especially "Find My Freedom" which still boggles my mind as to why it wasnt on the album proper! A lot of bands leave not so good songs for b-sides/bonus tracks, but Helloween have had really awesome originals as b-sides. Like "Walk Your Way" by Markus for the "Power" single. <3

Lyrics added. Hopefully someone approves them quickly

The bonus tracks are too good to be bonuses imo

but I guess it feels actually more "bonus" if they are good

you have bonus tracks..Faster we fall?
I so happen to come across it. Fortunately too. pm me if needed

The bonus tracks rock! Especially "Faster We Fall". I think that was written by Markus. xD He really has came into his own as a songwriter the past few years!

Thanx again Ag Fox!

Its the perfect excuse! hehee Your English doesnt suck at all, I actually thought it was your first language!

The version of the album up on Amazon that contains 17 tracks including "Come Rain Or Shine" doesn't exist. It was a mistake by Amazon. Ive seen a couple of people who ordered that version complaining that the cd they got was just the regular deluxe edition with only "Im Free" as a bonus track.

I didn't see any previous posts mentioning this so I thought I would share with any of you who do not realize this: There is a song on this album named "Long Live the King" is about and dedicated to Ronnie James Dio.

This looks like metal done 20 years ago . I guess for fans of genre this is ok, but, really, there is something called evolution, and this kind of metal clearly doesn't fit on It.

But, I only can take very little power/heavy metal, so my opinion shouldn't affect fans of this (for me horrible metal genre)

Aww thanks! lol

I certainly do know, and same for you!

@Mountain King: You're sealing the fate of 7 Sinners by proclaiming it's top of the best of 2010 list. lol Now you'll get some Enslaved fans giving bad ratings to it, even if they havent heard it, just to drop it from No.1 That's if that hasnt already started happening...

I listened to it (but didn't buy it, of course), if that's oriented to me. And i didn't like it. I believe that for fans it could be a masterpiece. It just don't work at all for me (I stated the reasons on previous post). Hope you have been explained

The curious is that Helloween fans started to do what you say with other top albuns long ago (and that i can guarantee they didn't even listened). You've been very misinformed...

It was not directed at you specifically. Though you admitted you don't like the genre, so why would you listen to their album then... lol And how do you know they've been doing that? Have you keeping tabs on the situation or something? I mentioned it, cos mods have stated before that there is a problem with people rating albums down, for no other reason, than to get their favourites to the top. Im not saying that no Helloween fan has done it, cos that would surprise me if that were the case. But, I think a minority of all band's fans do that type of thing, including Enslaved ones. Im not misinformed at all, its been highlighted as an issue before, and to be honest, it doesnt surprise me in the slightest that it goes on... whether its Helloween fans, or Enslaved fans, or any other band's fans who does it, it's pathetic.

To Mega Therion
It went from 8.8 to 8.7. Big difference in the top 200.
Probably got bashed for being there.

I've been listening to Power metal for 15 years now and although i think this is not a bad album, it just does not give something new, i still like the BG new album and Star one better this year for Power and Progressive. Not saying the album is crap or anything , it has some really nice and catchy tunes in it Well thats my opinion anyways , dont flame me pwease Have listened to it more than two times now. And no im not one of those guys that think Metal is the 90s and 80s only

For me, this album sounds engaging, right to the point and inspired right from the first listen without being over the top, which is something that I seldom experience with Power Metal albums these days.

Now it's 8.6
IMO it's a good album but not great.
