"WALLS OF JERICHO + HELLOWEEN + JUDAS"
A reissue of the 1st three Helloween releases. Helloween ep, Walls of Jericho and the Judas single. Legendary release with Kai Hansen on vocals and guitar. A true classic with songs that Gamma Ray and Helloween still perform live to this day!
"KEEPER OF THE 7 KEYS PT. 1"
1st album with the awesome Michael Kiske on vocals. contains some of the most memerable Power metal anthems of all time. Keepers 1 and 2 are the templets on wich all melodic power metal bands are judged today.
"KEEPER OF THE 7 KEYS PT. 2"
A bit more Thrashy than pt.1.
"PUMKINS ON PARADE" (BOOTLEG CONCERT)
Bought this cd off ebay and it is a concert from Keepers 2. I was so happy to hear them do 'March of Time'!
"I WANT OUT/LIVE IN THE U.K."
These 2 cds are the same, they were just released with different covers. There is accually a 3rd called "Keepers Live" and is the Japanese edition.
"THE BEST THE REST THE RARE"
A collection of their greatest hits at the time. Also included are some of the b-sides off the 2 keepers albums. The sound quallity of this mix was better than the original releases. Almost like a remaster! This cd is a great collectable.
"PINK BUBBLES GO APE"
Kai Hansen left the band to form Gamma Ray. New guitarist, Roland Grapow from the band Rampage replaced him. Roland had an almost Neo-classical approach to his playing. Though this album had 4 great songs, it did not do well. It seemed a little too corny.
"KIDS OF THE CENTURY" (SINGLE)
"NUMBER ONE" (Japanese Single)
Last album to feature Michael Kiske on vocals. This release was the band's most acustical to date. Almost had a pop music quallity but never crossed the line. This album was not well recieved by the fans. However, the songs; Giants, First Time and the epic I Believe were strong numbers. However, after the tour of Chameleon, founding drummer, ingo commited suicide. He was replaced by Uli Kusch(former Gama Ray drummer).*
"WHEN THE SINNER" (SINGLE)
"I DON'T WANNA CRY NOMORE" (SINGLE)
"STEP OUT OF HELL" (SINGLE)
"HELL SINGLES PART 1"
A collection of rare b-sides I bought off ebay.
"MASTER OF THE RINGS" (2 CD)
1st album to feature new vocallist Andi Deris. Deris brought freshness to the band with his raspie melodic bellowing. Personally, I thought he sounded like John Schlitt from Petra. But the sound was beefed up and the true metal was back!!! This version cantains a bonus cd with all b-sides from this album.
"THE TIME OF THE OATH"
A little darker than master of the rings, but still true power metal. Some of the strongest material ever by Helloween is on this disc!
"FOREVER AND ONE" (SINGLE)
"THE TIME OF THE OATH" (SINGLE)
2cd live album where Andi sings some classic Kiske songs!! He does quite well too.
"BETTER THAN RAW" (JAPANESE EDITION)
It took a while to get used to this cd but it grew on me. It was a little muddy in the production but it does not take away from the creativity in these songs. Powerful thrashy songs and Helloween as a band are tight. I aso have the American release of this album too but I do not count it.
"I CAN" (SINGLE)
"HEY LORD" (enhanced single)
A collection of cover songs. Nothing too special but I love the cover of the Beatles song 'All My Lovin'!! Production again was a little muddy.
"LAY ALL YOUR LOVE ON ME" (SINGLE)
"KARAOKE REMIX VOL 1"
"KARAOKE REMIX VOL 2"
"THE DARK RIDE" (JAPANESE EDITION)
New production and a down-tuned sound, Helloween embarked on a darker journey. Many metal fans who did not like Helloween before, did like this cd. I liked it, but I am glad they did not stick to this sound on the next album. No matter what side you are on, one cannot deny the power and crunch of these songs.
"IF I COULD FLY" (SINGLE)
4cd Japanese collection of hits and b-sides. Not to mention interviews with ALL helloween members(except Ingo) on the 4th disc. Sound quallity was suberb.
"TREASURE CHEST" (3CD EUROPEAN VERSION)
Same as the Japanese version but has a 3rd disc of rare b-sides. Mine also has the Japanese version's picture book.
"RABBIT DON'T COME EASY" (Japanese Edition)
Wow, I loved this cd! Only 2 songs I found drab. The rest are a return to earlier Helloween's sound.
"JUST A LITTLE SIGN" (JAPANESE SINGLE)
"MRS. GOD" (Japanese Digi-pack enhanced single)
"KEEPER OF THE 7 KEYS: THE LEGACY" (2cd Jap' Digi-pack)
Wow, it is great to hear another epic Helloween album again. I am still trying to absorb this one...give me a while....So far, I think disc 1 is better than 2....
"EXPANDED EDITIONS" (8 Volumes)
WOW!! A dream come true!!! Helloween re-released the 1st 8 albums REMASTERED W/ ALL B-SIDES!!!!! These sound awesome and the liner notes on all 8 were interviews with Weikath! Also, all the b-sides from these 8 were remasters too! My only complaint, The track called "Interview" which was on a Pink Bubbles... b-side had Kiske and others talking to a journalist for around 10min. was not accounted for. Oh well, I have that in great condition anyway. This collection is worth buying!!
"THE SINGLES BOX 1985-1992"
"GAMBLING WITH THE DEVIL" (2cd)
"UNARMED" (Best of 25th Anniversary)
