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, ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Germanic Metal Majesty.......nuff said! 16 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
Crank up the volume, lock your doors, grab your air guitar and prepare to lose your mind, this is METAL that grabs you by the guts and burns itself into your brain. From the primal to the melodicaly sublime this is Hellowe'en.
Spitting speed metal mayhem, with tongue firmly in cheek, Hellowe'en began the assault way back in '86 and this little bundle of joy beautifully encompasses the very best of their maidenesque maddness. The blistering barrage of "Savage" and the thrash onslaught of "Victim of Fate" will purify your mind, "Save Us" will have you on your knees while "Ride the Sky" and the pure genius of "Halloween and Keeper of the Seven Keys" will burn out of the speakers the with barely a pause. "Futureworld" will have you bouncing off the walls and you just can't help belting out the class acts of "I want out", "Dr Stein" and "Livin' ain't no crime". "Judas" will pound your senses, and with but a brief interlude while the "Walls of Jericho" thunder down, just "Don't run for cover" crank up the volume and press PLAY one more time.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good Helloween sampler 19 Mar 2000
By Jorge Ruben - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"The Best, the Rest, the Rare" is a pretty good Helloween sampler, a good album to pick up if you want to find out what all the buzz was about Helloween in the late 80's... "I Want Out" is the opener, the song that was pushed ad nauseum by MTV to hype up the Headbangers Ball Tour (remember that?); it's nonetheless a great song and one of their more accessible, friendlier tracks... a shame they don't do it live anymore... "Dr. Stein" is next, again a great track, off the legendary "Keepers Part 2" album... "Future World" is one of their best, Michi's vocals begin to come into their own on this track... "Judas", an old Kai Hansen-era track, was one of their heaviest up to that point... great lyrics... "Walls of Jericho" is an instrumental with the now familiar "Happy Happy Halloween" fanfare... "Ride the Sky", another Kai Hansen vocal track, is one of my favorites... great drums & guitars... "Halloween", the 13+ minute opus: what can be said? If you haven't heard this track by now then you don't know what songwriting is all about... "Livin' Ain't No Crime", a b-side, is kinda cool... "Save Us": Why is this here? I mean, out of all their tracks that they can label as "the rest" or "the rare", why this? Why not "White Christmas" or better yet "Oernst of Life" (if you've heard these rare babies then you know what I'm talking about)... "Victim of Fate", a re-mix done with Michi's vocals, is pretty good; the original, off the "Helloween" EP, is still heavier, though... "Savage", my absolute favorite track off this compilation, is the fastest thing Helloween has ever done; Michi's songwriting is so good on this song, I listen to his other stuff and I wonder, "What happened? You started out so promising..."... "Don't Run for Cover" is awesome; not too fast, but heavy... "Keeper of the Seven Keys" rounds out the album, their other 13+ minute song. Not as good as "Halloween", but pretty damn close... Like I said, Helloween fans will get this just to complete the collection (as any die-hard Helloween fan already has these songs through their various albums & EPs)... Newbies may want to pick it up to listen to one of the greatest metal bands of all times... the choice is yours...

5.0 out of 5 stars A great pick for heavy metal lovers. You'll be pleased. 18 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Great non-poser heavy metal of late-80's. Michael Kiske has possibly the best voice of any rocker I've ever heard. Name is deceiving of music style.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME 1 Jun 1999

Format:Audio CD
The melodies that pours forth from Kai and Mike's guitars just stir the soul. The weeping and whailing... No other band can compare.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY POWERFUL 13 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion....Germany has had some of the best bands to come from that country. Accept, Scorpions, and Helloween.. I don't think that you can get much better than that. I only wished that this band would tour the U.S. more often. It has been over ten years since they have launched a full scale WORLD TOUR. If you like Power Metal ... than this is the album for you.
