    Maybe for next year; they won't be on the boat this time because they were last year.

    I can't say I want them back though.... diva attitudes all around and sub-par performances, in my opinion. The cover band that Donn books for the pre party "Made of Metal" does kiske-era covers that blow modern-day helloween away.

    Yeah, Helloween was a big disappointment for me. Walked out before their Chorus Line set because the wait was too long and there were other things to do then walked out on the pool deck set because it just didn't sound good.

    How about Diabulus in Musica or Dark Moor?

    As a Spaniard, I have to say Metal from Spain totally sucks :D I only like Dark Moor and a band noone knows (and which is probably inactive) called Runic which released a pretty decent album (Liar Flags) with obvious influences from Amon Amarth.

    Made of Metal did some AWESOME Helloween covers that night.

    I liked Helloween on the Chorus Line, but I was just fanboying :oops: , the sound was indeed awful. I did like the pool deck set, though.

    I've seen them live six times so far. They are usually hit or miss. Sometimes they sound great, sometimes they don't. Especially Andy. I guess his songs demand too much from his voice. :?

    Yeah, the best time I saw them was on Hellish Rock, back in 2008.

    EDIT: Their 2011 tour with Stratovarius was good too, but that time I got to be onstage dressed as Dr. Stein, so I don't think my memories are unbiased. :P

    I do think that they should stop playing so many Kiske-era songs. Deris-era (obviously) suit Andi's voice better, and they sound weird with Andi. Also, Deris-era songs are usually better. There, I said it.

    Agreed. I'm a bad weenie but I don't really like keeper 1& 2 that much. I quite like Walls Of Jericho and Everything from Dark Ride on.

    Yeah you are a bad weenie! Keeper 1 & 2 are THE helloween albums, in my opinion. Walls of Jericho is a good warm up to them, though.

    I can't say I want them back though.... diva attitudes all around and sub-par performances, in my opinion. The cover band that Donn books for the pre party "Made of Metal" does kiske-era covers that blow modern-day helloween away.


    Deris never showed for meet n greets in Australia, he said "i have to protect my voice". Which is understandable i suppose, but why
    fly all the way down here, then shun the fans. Punters would not have given a shit if his vocals were sub-par, they're just happy metal acts actually tour here.

    Was really annoyed about that at the time - as they didn't do a meet and greet in Brisbane I had one of my mates go to the meet and greet in Sydney for me, only to find that Deris wasn't there. Bloody prima donna.

    Having said that though, the Brisbane show was fucking terrific :heavydrink:

    Still wish I got to see Kiske/Hansen era Helloween live though :cry:

    They still are as fresh as ever. Nor will they be dropped from the peak of Power Metal Mountain. Few albums have gotten there after that but those 2 are still too good.

    88' would have been quite a ride seeing them live with Iron Maiden, even tho Bruce was sick alot of that tour. Best era from both bands. Tho what band wasn't at their best around 87-88...

    Keepers are awesome, amazing, fantastic albums...

    I still like Deris-era songs better, in general. Where the Rain Grows, Power, Hey Lord!, Lavdate Dominvm, Sole Survivor, Secret Alibi, Forever And One (Neverland) are all masterpieces, right up there with Eagle Fly Free, Dr. Stein, I Want Out or Future World...

    I ran into him on the boat and quizzed him on the meet n greet thing, from which i got the answer, then he gives me a cigar!

    As a Spaniard, I have to say Metal from Spain totally sucks :D I only like Dark Moor and a band noone knows (and which is probably inactive) called Runic which released a pretty decent album (Liar Flags) with obvious influences from Amon Amarth.


    As a Mexican, Spanish metal is great.

    Except Mägo. Mägo sucks. :evil:

    Seriously, though, Saratoga when Leo Jiménez was there kicked ass, Saurom is my favorite folk metal band ever, Warcry has some very solid songs (and an awesome vocalist)...

    I dig some Deris-era stuff but I don't think they've managed to make one full solid album since keepers. K3 Legacy had like 2 superb songs that are top3 post keeper things for me. Also "Oath" & "Rings" had some solid stuff but other latter stuff isn't anything out of ordinary catalog power metal.

    From K1-2 I like those "less known" songs more even tho there is 0 skippables. Both epics, We got the right, March of Time, Savage ( B-side of Dr. Stein iirc ) etc. And ofc I Want Out!

    I think Better than Raw is the best Helloween album. But, yes, I see your point.
