Surprisngly good video this one! I especially like the set where the band are playing, with the Mayan backdrop and the pumpkins!

If I have one tiny gripe about the song, it's that the solo is a bit short. This song deserves a more spectacular and longer solo section. Overall though, a great song, and is the best lead single from a Helloween album since "Power" from "Time Of The Oath"!

I'm a huge power metal fan, but just haven't ever been able to get into these guys. This song is really unique and interesting, though.

Great song! Video was good too, although I wish they had used real actors instead of CG. On the bright side, the CG was pretty darn good for a music video.

You're a huge power metal fan, but you don't get along with one of the very first power metal bands, probably the most influential of all to the sound of the genre, and one of the best of all times? Weird

Go listen to the Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part 1 and 2.

Great song, great story, great video....even with the cheesy CG. Every member of the band (especially Weiki) are still MONSTERS with their instrument of choice, and Andi's voice is still as powerful as ever. Helloween forever!

Great video and great song, if the album is like this one song, then it will be great. Andi sure pulls out a great performance!

One of the few consistent bands out there. Power Metal has the best releases out of all sub genres...

I agree,hate when they cut Halloween song by half but ok it was to long for standard video
But this time they could extend this minute and few sec..especially that great solo part!

Like it. Its closer to my favourite period of their catalogue. Around Time Of The Oath and Better Than Raw.

If the album itself is as good as either of those two, I'll be more than satisfied!

I am really happy with that too, especially as Gamma Ray seem to have lost their way on their last few albums.

Well many of the power metal bands I listen to play a somewhat different "flavor" of power metal, I'm mainly into power metal bands like Sonata Arctica, Heavenly, Fairyland, etc. But I'll have to give those two albums a shot.

Land Of The Free Part II wasn't too bad, but To The Metal was disappointing. They seem to have followed a lot of bands in to quietening down their style. Luckily Helloween seems to be bucking the trend.

I don't like the direction the band took after The Dark Ride... Deris's voice is now too modulated and I miss the raw voice he had in Pink Cream (Take those tears !!!) and on his debut albums with Helloween.

Very nice video and music itself sounds much more better than "burning sun" experience Funny stuff is I've read that they completely mix Aztec and Mayan calendars - this one shown in Nabataea iz Aztec... Also Nabateans are Arabic (!!!) - it's culture and nation is coming from north Arabia (you can hear about it's kingdom called Petra). So with this video Helloween mixed everything, But it's still nice video and great song.

Deris does an outstanding performance in this song. Everything from his usual raspy mid-range self, to clean high-notes, piercing screams and softer singing as well. He is one of my favorite vocalists, able to take on a whole bunch of different characters in just one song. The way this song changes up the vocal-melodies and also the instrumental transitions in the long version is pure brilliance. 2013 is gonna start with a bang folks!
