Latest reviews

In 1984 in Hamburg, one of the most important European power metal bands was born. More than three decades later, egos were left aside and a 7-member line-up toured around the world in a live reunion that, until then, seemed to be a possibility only in Helloween fans' wettest dreams.   Review by nikarg ››
All-told, I guess I can count myself pretty darn fortunate to have gotten my hands on the new Helloween prior to its release, so I could dribble out a few choice zingers on the internet for total strangers to read as if I know something they don't (even if I wound up sitting on my adipose sarcophagus watching Parks & Rec all day and had to wait until after the release date to listen to it like a regular chump-asaurus). I just wish this had happened two, five, or possibly 28 years ago.   Review by ScreamingSteelUS ››
With such a terribly generic name and quite mundane album cover, you might be excused for doubting the content of the German legends' fourteenth original studio album. Those that have kept on the ball with Helloween in recent years however, will know that the band have been on remarkably good form and will certainly not judge this proverbial book by the cover.   Review by Baz Anderson ››
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...   Review by Baz Anderson ››
