Helloween

I searched through the threads and it appears that Helloween doesnt have a thread yet.

Helloween is argueably the most influential power metal band of all time, so they definately deserve a thread in here.

Ill start this off with a topic:

Which of Helloween's singers throughout their history is your favorite and why?

Im gonna go with Andi Deris. He has a wide vocal range and his voice is very suitable to Helloween's music, hes one of the most underrated vocalists in the metal genre.

I never had much of a thing for 'Eagle Fly Free' until about a week ago, hah, great song though, my personal favorite song from any of the 'Keeper' albums is a tie between 'I Want Out' and 'March Of Time'.

****in legends.

Dr. Stein! Damn I love Helloween. The Keeper of the Seven Keys albums kick so much ass. I don't know which one I like better, though.

Id go with:

Keeper Of The Seven Keys Pt. 2
Walls Of Jerico (I misspelled that last word, I know it)
Better Than Raw

Those are 3 amazing albums, though my favorite is 'The Dark Ride' it was only an experimental album, so it has a slightly different sound from the rest of their material.

I like it.

Some of the major highlights IMO are:
Born On Judgement Day
The Shade In The Shadow
Occasion Avenue
Pleasure Drone

Kiske is a good singer, but a ****ing asshole, lol he turned into a fanatic christian, doesn't play rockmusic anymore and condemns everything metal to be satanist and whatnot.
Helloween is frickin-a-great though, they're touring through Germany now with Primal Fear, but tickets are around 40 Euros, which I don't happen to be liking to spend, so meh. Also I don't like their newer stuff and without the almighty God of power metal Kai Hansen... no.

I thought Rabbit Dont Come Easy was good, but there are a few weak songs. My favorite on there has gotta be "Dont Stop Being Crazy", "Just A Little Sign" is good too though.

Favorite Song at this point is "King For A Thousand Years".... I also liked "You always walk alone" and "Halloween."

The good news is that I get to see Kai Hansen and Gamma Ray when they pass through Toronto. :-)
