Staff review by
Baz Anderson
Helloween have been forging a new path for themselves for many years, seemingly cursed in the way that anything with the Helloween name on it will be compared to those influential Keeper... albums, and almost every time the new offering inevitably falls short.

7 Sinners is the third album with the current line-up, and the first since The Dark Ride that has been able to square up to the Keeper... albums and come off looking pretty good. The reputation of those early albums will never be matched again, but Helloween are determined to continually prove their worth as the genre's kings and still as a legitimate and current power metal band.

Helloween are back with their best album definitely at least since The Dark Ride. This is heavier stuff, modern, and certainly catchy without being cheesy. This will be one of the albums of the year for all those concerned.

From what I've heard so far, this album seems to be the strongest Helloween effort of the last decade or so. I guess that's not saying much given that the band have been treading more or less the same musical path since "Gambling with the Devil", but the delivery and all-round performance on "7 Sinners" seems a lot more consistent in comparison. So nothing groundbreaking here, but very solid stuff. "Are You Metal?" and "Far in the Future" would be my personal highlights.
