4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the Freak show...! 30 Aug 2008
By Twitch
Format:Audio CD
Now I only discovered Edguy about a year ago and therefore am in a better position than long term fans to judge their new material compared to their older stuff as I haven't got caught in a pre determined mind set to what Edguy became known for up until Mandrake. Hellfire is their 6th album and the first to stray from their power metal roots and adopt a more hard rock approach whilst it does keep some power influences. The guitars are more heavy and not as fast in melody as previous outings, there are also fewer solos but the ones that there are pretty good and more hard rock sounding. Hellfire is a strong album although not perfect; no song here matches their best which IMO is `Tears of a Mandrake' and parts of some songs sound as if they could have been much better e.g. the solo in `King of Fools'. Tobias is strong on vocals and has more attitude than ever before and Jens is good on lead guitar although you feel as if he could have done slightly more during some parts and Felix Bohnke is great on drums. The other 2 are just as usual the foundations but nothing overly spectacular from Dirk or Eggi.

Ratings out of 10

1) Mysteria- 9.1
2) The Piper Never Dies- 9
3) We Don't Need A Hero- 8.9
4) Down to the Devil- 9.6
5) King of Fools- 9
6) Forever- 8.4
7) Under the Moon- 9.2
8) Lavatory Love Machine- 9.7
9) Rise of the Morning Glory- 8.8
10) Lucifer in Love- ? (Weirdness)
11) Navigator- 8.7
12) The Spirit Will Remain- 8.5

Overall this is a good album, better than the following Rocket Ride but maybe not quite as good as Mandrake, my opinion on this changes regularly but the best 2 are `Mandrake and `Hellfire Club'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blazing Fury from Edguy !!!! 27 April 2004
Format:Audio CD
Edguy - if you havn't heard of them before, you have probably stumbledupon them from hearing about their correlations with Maiden and Helloween...not the worst bands to be compared to at all!
If you want to see how this band has progressed since the mid 90's to themodern day..I cannot recommend thbeir previous efforts hightly enough -very good power, melodic, thrash, speed, orchestral, high octaine metal -that can also be pleasant on the melodic ears at times as well !
Here is my speed readers' track by track of Hellfore Club:
Mysteria 5
This opens the album in an unrelenting double bass speed metal assault ofthe senses. Great verses and catchy lyrics backed by a very tight ryhtmand lead section. Superb opener !!!
Piper Never Dies 5
Amazing follow up..at 10 minutes ong I was expecting many mood changes,build ups etc...but once it gets going after a minute or so, it is aclerverly contructed tune with enough melody to keep you repeating thechoruse...just like the pied piper leading ou away...lots of good thingsabout this song!
We Dont Need A Hero 4
More straight head metal here, but the chorus and riffing is exemplarary,with some fine backing vocals, giving this a powerful atmospheric feel
Down To The Devil 5
This kicks off with a damn good piano intro and contains possibly thecatchiest chorus in the album. Hard to ciriticise and the piano introlinks to the Lucifer in Love (see later)
King Of Fools 5
The song that was released as an EP. Has a very riff and fuzzy verse. Easy on the ear and good chorus again. Not as heavy as Hero, but thevolume is turned up for this one
Forever 5 ++
There is no rating greater than 5 butr Edguy are good at writing powerballads. Use of orchestra instead of keys helps...

4.0 out of 5 stars Burn in hell!!! 25 May 2004
By "soffl"
Format:Audio CD
Edguy...hm.... Tobias Sammet-Avantasia!!! In my humble opinion one of the best metal projects ever made in the last years. And now its the new album of Edguy, the band. Of course, the voice of Tobias is unmistakable and dominates the album, just as usual. But lets get to the tracks:
1.Mysteria: "Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the freakshow!" the track keeps its promise, your boxes vibrate when the full sound hits you and you feel energy in every riff and note.
2.The piper never dies: an exceptional midtempo-song, it goes on for ten minuts and never gets boring! The changes in tempo, harmony and the lyrics written in typical edguy-manner make it an experience you want to drown in....
3. We don't need a hero: Faster than "the piper never dies" with a chorus that winds its way through your brain and just keeps stuck there!
4. Down to the devil: again a fast song, still very melodic and with the usual devil-allusions, but in a somehow positive way. The guitar-riffs really do sound cool and you can hear the fun the band is having!
5. King of fools: the first single, and its perfect for it, as it units all the qualities of a good edguy-song: a melody you won't forget, the unmistakable brilliant voice of Tobias and the Lyriks with contents you can identify yourself
6. Forever:AAh, the first ballad! Beautiful and sad, still with a strong chorus and orchestra!
7. Under the moon: The lyriks have again some biblical and religious content and the song itself is one of the faster ones, it really rocks!
8.Lavatory Love machine: the obligatory fun-song! Lyrics you've got to laugh about and joy swinging in every tone, thats just edguy at their best!
9.
