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.

I love so many helloween new era albums but I have to say I love keepers the legacy. Is juts a perfect mix of perfect melodic power metal and a lot of prog music. The last album for me was ok, but I love this songs with a lot of changes but keeping a same path. I hope this album is more likely to that or at least something like time of the oath of master of the rings

Is Helloween coming up with a new studio album :O When is it coming?

Now I'm riding through the air
going to where no one dares
on the way I'll cross the line forevermore.
For once in life, I do not care
nothing matters, now I dare
On the ride I'll cross the line
forever to be free

I think that will be a good record after i listen the songs of the single.

EDIT: By the way, i hope they include the "I'm Free"'s song in an edition of the album.

Hmm... I like those songs! lol "My Sacrifice" is very different for Helloween, modern, but still kewl. I love the chorus, and dramatic ending of it. I didnt like it much at first, but it grew on me after about 3 listens. Same with "Smile Of The Sun".

"You Stupid Mankind" is one of my faves on the album, and I liked it instantly. I love the schlock horror feel to it, especially the main riff, which is made the more tense by the keyboards. So far, the song I like least is "If A Mountain Could Talk". It just hasnt grabbed me at all..

I didnt expect you to be mad at me! lol We just have different tastes, which is fine.

My fave songs after the first 3 listens are You Stupid Mankind, Long Live The King, and Who Is Mr. Madman? xD

"World Of Fantasy" is one of the songs I like best... heehe Classic Markus track with wonderful melodies. xD

"Long Live The King" is a powerful one, nice heavy riffs, and very fast chorus!

I enjoyed this one very much. One of Helloween's best with Deris(if not the best) "Long live the king" and "Far in the Future" are my favorites of the album, but overall it is a great album for me, the melodies, solos, vocals, drums, and guitars are top notch.

well after few listening My Sacrifice is still the worse track for me..The smile of the Sun begins like beautifle balad but in the end she is just normal song..nothig like Forewer and one or Light the Universe..You stupid Mankind is strange song..cant say i like her but i dont hate her..:P
