Germanic Metal Majesty.......nuff said!,
This review is from: Best Rest & Rare (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.....
