NSYCSLT: Helloween - 7 Sinners

With "NSYCSLT" I'll try to introduce the "New Stuff You Can Still Listen To" - segment in which I will prevent different CD's that came out rather recently and are still great fun to listen to, because - let's face it - music has gone down the shitter in the last decades. Every month it gets harder to find good new CD's. Because there are more and more bands that belong to genres that end in "-core" and more and more bands try "artistic" (mostly melodic) approaches to their music generally leaving their fans disappointed (namely In Flames). And I am not just talking about metal. I mean the whole music industry in general. Just take a look at all the so-called artist that are popular right now. All singing the same canned music either about love, party or money. It's boring. So now I will present to you a new album that still holds up to name of the band.

Helloween - 7 Sinners

It's Helloween, doing what they are best at: Being Helloween. Not only do I really like the cover, as it looks really good and fitting to the name, it's also a nice that the album was published right before Halloween. The songs are what you would except these Germans to deliver. They are fast-paced, they are varying while still clinging to the old Helloween sound we Power Metal fans love. About one third into the CD you can make otu some folky elements and also some keyboarding segments that really stick out, while being refreshingly interesting to listen to. Give it a try.
