This is a kick-ass album. Uneccessarily spread over 2 discs, this picks up both in terms of quality and in style. The music has that 'classic' Helloween feel that everyone felt when they first heard classics such as 'I Want Out' and 'Eagle Fly Free'. I can't pick out any particular song, as I love the whole damn album. It also rears the band's head back up, as I felt they had become a bit generic over their last few albums, but this is a much needed kick up the arse to the metal community. I would rate this slighlty higher than Kai's latest effort, but buy that as well. Make sure you buy this album.
You haven't bought it yet? What part of kick-ass didn't you understand?

Take the finest Germanic metal band in the world, add an unbelievable second Guitarist (Gerstner) and the mother of all rock drummers (Loble), send them into the studio and the result can only be the best Helloween album ever recorded! Keeeper -The Legacy is simply the best thing Helloween has ever done! Mind you, I have expressed similar sentiments for the last three albums but I mean it this time!

This album rocks! The songwriting is awesome, the playing out of this world and the production is so good the songs bust their way out of the speakers and punch you in the face!

My favourites are The Invisible Man, Pleasure Drone and Mrs God but each time I listen to the album I discover more!

Enjoy!

Well i have to say that i also thought that it would be impossible to equal the first 2 keeper albums.

I have been proved wrong!!

This is a brilliant album and would recommend this to any Helloween fan or newcomer to this type of music.

I bought this album after looking at the recommendations on this site.

The first song-King for a 1000 years is an absolutely awsome monster of a track which i think is just as good as Halloween or Keeper of the 7 keys.

I bought the first two keeper albums when they originally came out back the the late eighties and loved them.

Highlights for me are

Invisible Man-Brilliant!!!!

Born on Judgement Day-----Breathtakingly fast drumming.Good catchy chorus.

Pleasure Drone-----Very catchy!!

Mrs God---Good track.Definately the single.Very original.

Occasion Avenue-----Very good musically but not quite as good as Halloween or Keeper.

Light The Universe------Excellent Chorus----good to have a duet(Don't be put off by that)

The rest of the songs are all good and catchy.

I was very surprised that this album is so good.I think Andy Deris and the rest of the band have excelled themselves on this.

I was always a Michael Kiske fan but i think that Andy Deris has proved himself to be an excellent singer in his own right bringing Helloween back to where they belong, on top of their game.

Helloween, the masters & pioneers of one of the most popular & accessible genres of heavy metal ...speed/melodic metal, have in my opinion pulled off one of the most difficult, yet widely anticipated acts in the history of this genre!
The band released 2 albums back in 87 & 88 called The Keeper Of The Seven Keys Parts I & II. Now if you are reading this review, I suspect you will already know that these were both considered masters of their time. This release using the same title yet over 17 years more mature, with a developed line up boasting just 2 of the original 'ween line up could very easily have been a disaster.
Helloween have had a history of new dawns following record company, band member or musical directional issues (not mentioning personal tradgedy..RIP Ingo)which has affected the quality or potential for what this band could have achieved.
However I am a fan & have all their albums & rate this release as high as the previous Keeper albums & add that it contains evidence of a band comfortable with who they are, what they are good at & where they can go in the future...
The album is definitely split into 2 discs for a reason. Disc 1 songs are certainly in the vein of 'typical' Keeper-esque songs...linked to the story of the 7 keys with trademark sounds to support them...speed twin guitar assault golo's, speed double bass drum at ferocious speeds, high pitche melodic choruses, orchestral backgrounds & sing - a - long - choruses.
Disc 2 shows how the band is in 2005. A mixture of modern sounding tunes, yet capturing the essence of Helloween ...much of their lyrics are simple which allows them to be more creative with musical structures for intro's, solo's, bridges etc.

Okay let me start by just saying I am a fan a huge fan of guitar music, in particular power/progessive metal style of music. I decided to write this review to drown out two reviews which in my opinion are completely incorrect.

An example of the inaccuracy of one review - when mentioning song writing credits claiming Kai Hansen wrote ALL the songs. He wrote alot of them but not every song. I think you need to double check who wrote the epic 13 minute title track for Keeper Of The Seven Keys, also what about Eagle Fly Free, Dr. Stein, A Tale That Wasn't Right. Songs which are staples on the Helloween live setlist and considered to be some of the best if not the best power metal anthems of all time written by.... Michael Weikath.

Despite being the vocalist during the original Keeper of the Seven Keys albums Michael Kiske is only credited with writing 3 songs. There's no doubting he is an excellent vocalist but he almost destroyed Helloween after the Keeper albums changing the musical direction. People seem to forget this or just haven't bothered to listen to anything created by new singer Andi Deris who himself is an excellent composer and singer despite not having the range of Kiske.

Helloween were heavily critised for writing songs under the 'Keeper Of The Seven Keys' album title years after the originals and especially when there are only now two of the founding members left. Michael Weikath on guitar and Marcus Grosskopf on Bass.

Helloween have always been asked by fans and the media if there would be another Keeper installment and they felt 2005 was the year to finally answer this question and bring the saga to an end.
