True, but even if you look at it that way, a Japanese only release decreases the chance of an early leak.

I just found this, a nearly 2 minute sample of "Burning Sun"!



I really can't wait to hear the full song and the rest of the new album. Weiki is still a power metal genius! xD

Helloween keep proving again and again why they are seen by many as masters of their genre, and the snippet of this song would appear to indicate that they are going to prove that fact once again! Andi's screaming vocals during the verse reminds me a bit of Rob Halford, certainly a bit more aggressive than he usually is. Awesome!

That is sadly true, even though Weiki was a very active songwriter for Helloween, even in their very early days. And if we're talking about more recent years, well... just this 2 minute sample of "Burning Sun" is better than anything Kai has come up with for many years. The last couple of Gamma Ray albums have been pretty poor, whilst Helloween just seem to keep going from strength to strength.

Andi was sound similar on some songs on Gambling album(Kill it)..but now it is a bit annoying for me!
Perhaps it will sound better for me when i hear whole song

I've just got hold of the EP today! Here is the title track in all it's glory though for everyone who hasn't been able to get hold of it.

Catch it while you can though, dunno how long it will remain up for!

You're very welcome, I'm glad you liked it! And yep, the song is great! It's probably the best song Weiki has written since Born On Judgement Day from Keepers: Legacy.

I listen all songs on youtube and imo Burning Sun is best song of this EP
I expected more of "Another Shot Of Life"..its just good song imo..and i just dont know why they make songs like "Wanna Be God"!
Perhaps in the concept of the entire album will this song get some sense to me..all in all a good EP
No coment for live version of "Where The Sinners Go"

The "Burning Sun" title track is absolutely awesome, pure Weiki goodness. Already listened to it 10 times straight. The rest of the EP is not bad either.

Production is great too..when i listen from my stereo its more "juicy" then 7 Sinners or even Gambling who whas more "blank"!
Hope that Charlie will do same great job on the album!
Now I have to raise my grade

After the fantastic album "7 Sinners" and the slightly generic title of the upcoming album, I was a bit worried that they wouldn't be able to keep the quality so high... but after listening to this EP I am no longer worried at all!
