Biography

Alongside Switzerland's Celtic Frost and Sweden's Bathory, Germany's Helloween were possibly the most influential heavy metal band to come out of Europe during the 1980s. By taking the hard riffing and minor-key melodies handed down from metal masters like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, then infusing them with the speed and energy introduced by the burgeoning thrash metal movement, ...

After the slight direction change on the last two albums,they get rid of michael kiske, and ingo,and they get replaced by ex-pink cream69 operatic screamer Andi Deris and a man who can thrash the hell out of the drums,Uli Kusch,and they make sweet music together!! although not as good as the 'keeper' albums,this album returns to that style of great power metal that we all love! the song writing is great,and the guitar riffs keep getting more and more melodic,yet so thrashy!and with great vocals and an unbelievable beat running through it,this is a must for any helloween fan,Andi's debut with helloween,and a very god one indeed!people say he couldn't fill Kiske's shoes,well i must disagree,thats one of the reasons helloween are still around,Andi's voice! it fits the bands more mature and produced sound.The stand out tracks are 'sole surviver' a great number written by andi and weiki.The song that proves helloween will be here forever,the very heavy 'still we go' the headbang fest 'where the rain grows' and sad and depressing 'why' and the love struck ballad 'in the middle of a heart beat'overall this album aint a bad choice if your getting into helloween,but its a must for any real helloween fan.Also another track worth checkin out is the very catchy pop-ish metal anthem 'perfect gentelmen'

A lot of early Helloween fans don't like this second generation of Helloween, mainly because the change of singer and they can't feel as attached to the band they first got into.
However all that aside this album is fantastic. After the disappointing Pink Bubbles and Chameleon the band really are on top form again. They really benefit from the song writing abilities and playing of the 2 new members, Andi Deris on Vocals and Uli Kusch (My favourite Drummer) on drums.
The songs themselves have a really upbeat attitude to them (well mostly) and has sleeve notes and a new part to the Keeper story. I feel this is because the band feel that they are back to their keeper standards.
Unfortunately this album isn't as good as Keeper 2 and the album that has gotten closest to this sound is Their latest offering "Rabbit Don't Come Easy" but still, a great debut for the two new members and a must buy for all Helloween fans and fans of good solid power/melodic metal

Helloween’s 1994 album Master Of The Rings found the legendary Power Metal band in somewhat of a transition phase.

After the hugely successful and influential Keeper Of The Seven Keys albums from 1987 & 1988, the band lost founding member Kai Hansen (who would form the excellent band Gamma Ray) and changed up their style on the experimental albums Pink Bubbles Go Ape and Chameleon from 1991 and 1994, which many fans rejected. It cost the band a lot of momentum and many fans lost interest. Then singer Michael Kiske and drummer Ingo Schwichtenberg left the band, replaced on this record by Gamma Ray’s Uli Kusch and unexpectedly Andi Deris from Pink Cream 69, who at first glance wouldn’t seem like a perfect fit.

The new line-up revitalized the band and helped them regain momentum. The sound of the album itself however is a bit of a mixture between what the band were just before the line-up change, and what they would become when they found their feet.

The tracks “Sole Survivor,” “Where The Rain Grows,” and “Still We Go” show highlights of what was to come on the band’s next few albums, and the re-establishment of their speedy Melodic Power Metal style.

The tracks “Secret Alibi,” “The Game Is On,” “Perfect Gentleman” and “Take Me Home” are a bit more eclectic and varied, a little silly in parts, with an emphasis on sickly sweet melody and humorous asides… sitting half-way between the Power Metal style and Hard Rock. There’s plenty of space in the music, plenty of charismatic drum fills and pleasant guitar leads, the real feature however is Andi Deris’ vocals which take the spot light. These are enjoyable and fun tracks, and give the album a unique feel, but some fans can find them a bit too outside of their Power Metal comfort zone.

I know a few Helloween fans who don't like this but to me this album is a classic. I got it when it first came out and was hooked straight away. Tracks like 'Perfect Gentleman' and 'Secret Alibi' are still amongst my favourites.

By Hector Borrell - Published on Amazon.com

What is there to say about this album that hasn't already been said. First Helloween album to feature then new lead vocalist Andi Deris. My first thought when I first listened to it was confusion. First, I was still drooling over the Keeper of the seven keys duo, at the same time, I was disappointed at the 2 maligned pieces of s*** they had last put out with Kiske. However, the sound was refreshing, it was heavy, it was exciting, different, fresh start it was indeed. Though Deris is in no way a replacement or even an equal to Michael Kike, but then who is? His material had an incredible life of it's own, he made it his, put his creativity and voice to it, he knows his virtues and his limits, in no way did he ever intend to try to sound like Kiske, instead he wrote great songs along with the great creativeness of Weikath, Grapow and Uli. This is my third overall favorite Helloween album after Keepers 1 and 2. My favorite songs are, Secret Alibi, In the middle of a heartbeat, Mr. Ego (take me down), Perfect gentleman is awesome and I could just go on and on. An album with no fillers at all. My favorite album with Andi, Time of the oath and Better than raw are almost equally awesome as well, but those are different chapters.
