3.0 out of 5 stars Gorgar may consume thee..., 6 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Walls Of Jericho (Audio CD)
I once read a review which described Yngwie j Malmsteen's 'Trilogy' as "good, shiny Metal."

This perfectly sums up Helloween. It is Heavy Metal with which to motivate a trans German, autobahn thrash in a Porsche 928, en route to a garden party hosted by Rudy Schenker.

So acutely redolent of that brief period in the mid-late 80s when identikit moshing demanded its proponents sport freakishly large, white training shoes. Indeed, on arriving at Castle Donnington's (ultimately tragic) Monsters Of Rock event in 1988, Helloween were firing away from down the hill but there was no easily visible sign of Kai Hansen & Co up on stage from the vantage point at the back of the fields by the rat burger vending stalls - save for the lads' resplendent footwear - shining like a Siren's lantern, beckoning the faithful stagewards.

This EP smörgåsbord is an enthusiastic interlude but I don't feel it matches the triumph subsequently arising via el 'Keys' salvo; I don't wish to sound 'down' on the affair but this isn't my idea of a natural selection whereas 'Keeperware' isn't just vastly more polished, production wise but genuinely landmark grade, Metal ordnance.

However, I still love it: it's a bit like Accept's eponymously titled debut lp - no 'Restless & Wild,' sure but by the same token, sometimes a finely prepared, hearty fish and chips blow out (at 'The Magpie' in Whitby, ideally) is infinitely preferable to the finest filet mignon wheeled out at Maxim's, Paris, of a Vendredi eve.

It is a curio best reserved for those moments when you're hanging around with nothing to do...
