Huh...can't help feeling slightly disappointed by the name of the album (sounds a bit like an aborted Bat Out Of Hell 4 title). Still, if it's as good as 7 Sinners, I'll be happy.

As for the Hellish Rock Part II Tour...hoping for the UK date already!

Very unimginative album title, but as long as the music continues the rich vein of form Helloween have shown on recent albums, I'll be happy! As for the Hellish Rock Tour, I can only hope this time, I get a chance to see it!

Helloween must be one of those bands with an almost perfect discography.

Agree! Helloween gets better with every new album (sadly Gamma Ray goes in the inverse side of the road )

Yes, that is a bit unfortunate. I don't think "Land Of The Free II" or "To The Metal" are bad by any means but somehow they lack inspiration(?) to make them stick out. (I actually need to spin those 2 a bit more though, guilty of not being familiar with all the songs. "Majestic" was their last masterpiece in my opinion, the darker atmosphere was great! )

He said "almost perfect", and Metal Jukebox doesn't really count as it's a covers album.

I agree with what's been said above about Gamma Ray. In the mid 90's-early 00's, Gamma Ray gave Helloween a run for their money, and at times, even bettered them. GR's last two albums though, have been pretty disappointing overall, whereas Helloween's last two albums were great!

How am I lucky? I said I didn't get to see the last Hellish Rock Tour, as it didn't come near me.

Agree with you 100% everything GR recorded from Heading For Tommorow to Majastic was perfect...last two are a little bit annoying

Almost .
But anyway, Chamaleon it´s an interesting album to me. In MY opinion, it´s not bad, just different.

Haha, that's okay. Yep, GR are really falling behind Helloween now, and with Dan Zimmermann now out of the band, I think it's going to be even harder for them to catch up!

About "Chameleon", I certainly don't think it's a bad album, but it's definitely the black sheep in Helloween's discography.

Pink Bubbles is imo worst then Chameleon..but i find on both some good songs..90s was just not time for metal bands..and Helloween needed money so i understand commercial approach to their style..and ther is Kiske who want sing pop or pop/rock insted of heavy metal..but that is history..now Helloween create great music..but Hansen in GR is imo in creative trouble so its good he accept something little diferent in Unisonic too clear his head for new GR material..hope to hear some great new stuf with both bands!And as for Dan i think that his departure will have little or nothing to doo with quality of GR music cos Hansen is brain and leed man..Helloween changed 5 or 6 drummers and they all have their styles but you didnt hear that much change in Helloween style or music if drummer is good..and ofcours if change isnt bands plan,(Ingo is not included in this..he was best ever)

Wow, I haven't heard their first three albums and reading this makes me more impatient to get a hold of them. Everything from the first "Land Of The Free" to "Majestic" is pure gold. They really had an amazing run there, and from what you're saying, an even longer run apparently!
