Coming Out: 15 March 2004.

They are back!!!!!!
The Midges of Metal, the Savage ones, the pride of Germany. It's Edguy I'm talking about, so you don't misunderstand me.
"Hellfire Club" is the name of the game, the first with their new label Nuclear Blast, and what an album, ladies and gentlemen, what an album!

The long-awaited album from Edguy, finally entitled "Hellfire Club" , is once again a terrific masterpiece of German Power Metal. Successor to the magnificent "Mandrake" and the live album "Burning Down The Opera", this new album marks the beginning of a deal with Nuclear Blast after a long period with AFM Records.

I used to really like this album....but now it just seems like a stupid heavy rock thing and i see it as the beginning of the end of edguy.....the 3 albums before this are much better imo

Oho. I've just been introduced to this album, after hearing "Rocket Ride", it's clearly better.
Absolutely love this album.

When you listen Avantasia modern one, then turn back to this its simply a killer album, its pure Hm and true Pm what I like, killer blast, song structure, riffs, vocals,e nergy and agresivity its just amazing.

Mysteria, The Piper Never Dies, Lavatory sex machine and king of fools are never dying killer blast songs. Its amazing killer, rest of album is equal good

I somehow agree. I never liked "Forever" but "Spirit Will Remain" is cool.

Has the same catchiness as Mandrake, with the cool riffs, and powerful choruses, this album even sounds heavier to me, but the lyrics are slightly cheesier, and this lacks just those few really top notch songs that Mandrake had, such as The "Pharaoh" and "Tears Of A Mandrake", but overall very consistent and a good indeed

Reading this I think Avantasis needs Jens Ludvig as riff writer, sad that his best project is on hiatus, other is running almost in Eurovision

I agree, with Jens this has the cool riffs with the catchy melodies, but it's not too overdone to the point where it becomes poppish. Jens would be great for Avantasia.
