Album Review #1 "Keeper of the Seven Keys Pt.1" - Helloween (1987)

Le Kvlt Dawn


I'm going to kick off my first review with a band that I don't listen to a lot. In fact, this is the only power metal album I'll ever review.

First off, I would like to say that this isn't a "wimpy" sounding album. I'd say it's equally as heavy as something like Mercyful Fate. Except, faster and more uplifting. So it's heavy, and not some wimpy ass album, like most power metal is said to be.

The songs are very well made. The guitar has a nice tone, it's fast as hell and like I said before, heavy.

The vocals are kinda cheesy at times but overall, they're amazing. I think the only time they're REALLY cheesy is on the song "A Tale That Wasn't Right". In fact the song as a whole is fucking cheesy, it's like one of those songs you would here at the end of an 80's movie. Especially at a part near the very end where the protagonist is walking in to the sunset or something cheesy like that. That being said, it's still a good song. Cheesy as fuck, but still good.

My favorite song of this album would have to be "I'm Alive". I find it to be the most aggressive song on the whole album. The intro to it reminds me of "Aces High" by Iron Maiden though. I fucking swear, they're identical. "A Little Time" and "Future World" are also great. Even if the part with the buzer in "Future World" is weird. Why would you use that in a metal song? "Halloween" is an epic track, the solo is killer.


Track Listing:

1. Initiation

2. I'm Alive

3. A Little Time

4. Twilight of the Gods

5. A Tale That Wasn't Right

6. Future World

7. Halloween

8. Follow the Sign


So what did you guys think of my first review? Post some feedback. I doubt many people are going to read this but whatever. And no I don't give number ratings, they're just irrelevant. I either like an album or not.
