This was the first album by Helloween i purchased after coming across some guitar covers of 'were the rain grows' on youtube i fell in love with the style of the band, unlike a lot of power metal bands that take the music seriously (FICHT FOR THE GLORY OF THE METAL BY THE SMASHING OF STEEL I KILL FOR ITS HONOUR! blaaah) this band has a bunch of epic and fun styles you can tell they had fun with music.
This is another one of those awesome deluxe remaster editions, your getting more for your money than just the original album, it comes with a second disc containing b side singles and some covers (KISS anyone?) it also comes in a snazzy little sleeve covering the cd case, i like those.
So with this your getting a fair few tracks to listen to when it arrives and an awesome addition to any growing cd collection and after enjoying this im deffinitly in the market for another couple of Helloween albums.

This cd showed what Helloween are all about. Power Metal with the finished touches to boot. Scretching, virtuoso guitars; thunderous pounding drums, galloping bass and banshee vocals, metal as it should be. Helloween should of had more of the plaudits for what they do/have done for Power Metal. If you like your metal hard and fast then this is a start.
