Albums:

Helloween is a German Power Metal band that formed in 1984. The album Keeper of the Seven Keys has been cited by critics as the album of the greatest influence to power metal. I would have to agree. I love the vocal style, which fits right in with Rob Halford, Bruce Dickinson, and Dio. I like both vocals of Kiske and Deris. An old friend introduced me to this band and genre of music quite a few years back with the album Pink Bubbles Go Ape followed by Chameleon. He said those were the "mellow" albums....lol. I fell in love with them!

Along with acts like Gamma Ray and Blind Guardian, these groups are none other than quintessential power metal masters...

Some of my all-time favorites!! I've been spinning Keepers 1/2

I cannot be the only one that even digs their more experimental sounding albums like Chameleon. Lol
Helloween has went through a handful of experimental changes and some are a little questionable but most are pretty good! I'm a huge fanboy of the band and have seen them before so that might be it..

Even the changes that are questionable honestly in terms of the album I found stuff to enjoy about them. There's no real shit nugget to find in this batch unlike some bands out there who have that standout uncovered shit. Sorry for the dirty metaphors but it really was useful to my point. Lol
