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, ...

Alright! I've been trying to wait patiently for this release. From a personal viewpoint, I wasn't all that pleased when I saw the track listing, but we all have different favourites.
The interest is in how they reworked/rearranged the songs. Across the album you'll find on different tracks: a 70-piece orchestra; a choir; guest musicians; and even kids!

Personal Highlights:

The production is crystal clear.
If I Could Fly is a definite highlight with Deris starring here - his new more limited than before vocal range suits this track perfectly.
Future World works really well and includes a surprisingly entertaining short percussion passage near the end.
The Keeper's Trilogy is awesome. Have a listen to the high-intensity orchestration come in after the quiet intro to the `King For A thousand Years' section - unbelievable! Ala the James Bond `Live And Let Die' type of excitement. Sonically, it works as well as when the guitars & drums come crunching in on the original version of 'King...'.
Perfect Gentleman - before I had even heard the album, I couldn't picture this track working very well but boy was I wrong - still a very catchy tune even in this more laid-back version.
The priceless version of Falling To Pieces blew me away from the first bar. It's at least as good as the original. It's very rare when you have a great song and then an alternate version which is different but equally as good. The word `beautiful' probably best describes this rendition with another well-suited vocal by Deris..
What almost works perfectly is I Want Out. Deris delivers it well enough and kids do the backing vocals which is okay but it's a bit of an overkill as in `Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2'. Kids are okay but I prefer dogs. Still very catchy though.

Helloween have gone back over their 25 year history and 're-worked' or 're-arranged' some of their songs, and packaged them up in 'Unarmed'

The tracks should be familiar to any Helloween fan, but perhaps the choice of tracks is a bit baffling.

Dr Stein
Future World
If I Could Fly
Where The Rain Grows
The Keeper's Trilogy
Eagle Fly Free
Perfect Gentleman
Forever & One
I Want Out
Falling To Pieces
A Tale That Wasn't Right

For me, 'Where The Rain Grows' and 'Perfect Gentleman' are strange choices. 'The Keeper Trilogy', with orchestral accompanyment is superb, as is the jazzed up version of 'Dr Stein'

The rest of the album is okay. If you're a 'die hard' fan of Helloween, you'll probably buy it.

I have always been a helloween fan and when I herd that there was an new melow version comming out I just had to have a listen. This album is fantastic, the only downside for me is that there wasn't enough! I would also encourage buying this for the cover alone!

I have been a fan since they started out.(Well in my 40s now) Seen them many times and think the band are amazing. Have listened to some of the songs on this album for years now, and to hear them redone like a sort of theatre, opera style is truley superb. If you are a fan and a music lover you will appreciate how fantastic this album really is. I cant say enough about it. GET IT, YOU MUST.

I was thinking of writing a long drawn out detail of what this album is like and how it differs from their others but why bother.......it is, quite simply put, a brilliant album of re-worked songs that are all a testament to how good this band are and how they can diversify from their "normal" genre. Yes there are kids, an orchestra and guest vocals but if you are a true, hardened fan then this will not put you off, you will buy this anyway and as i did, play it non stop all day. Top 3 tracks would have to be "future world", "perfect gentleman" and "eagle fly free" with "the keepers trilogy" getting a special mention.....10/10
