One of the best Live metal albums ever. Helloween are amazing, great set list, amazing sound, great vox a perfect concert!!! The energy from the crowd that this band draws is also unparalled.
Germany’s Helloween are undeniably one of the most influential heavy metal bands to emerge from Europe during the 1980s. By taking the harmonies and structure of classic bands like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest and infusing them with the urgency and energy of the growing thrash metal movement, Helloween created something unique and truly embody the essence of ’power metal’. The band remains a strong force today, as proven on this new double CD, Keeper Of The Seven Keys: The Legacy World Tour 2005-2006 Live on 3 Continents. Captured live in Sao Paulo, March 25th, 2006 during their latest global trek, this release is a must for any fan of fantastic Heavy Metal.

This album shows just how powerful Helloween sounds when they play live specially in front of an amazing crowd like Sao Paulo. If you close your eyes and listen to this record you can feel being part of the audience. One thing I dont like so much about this record, is that some songs are over 10 minutes , when they could easily could have chosen to play some shorter songs, but they decided to play mostly songs from the Keeper of the Keys albums. Best treat….I Want Out…just listen to the crowd!
Helloween has allways been a great melodic metal band; 1 year ago they released the “Keeper Legacy” album, in my opinion one of their best (if not their very best). This Live album couldn’t come out in a better time; For those who like this band, you dont have to think about getting it. The performance was great, the sound quality simply terrific and the track selection almost perfect (excpet for some songs that you really come to miss). I had the chance to see one of the shows of this tour in Europe, and when I heard this for the first time, I almost thought that the guys were playing in front of me again. And dont miss the tracks of the past “Keeper” album performed by Andy Deris and with the sound quality of these days. A great experience for a metal fan. I seriously doubt that you can go wrong with this.
There are some excellent, energetic leads on this CD and the palm mutes are full and chunky. I recently discovered Helloween, having not been a fan of speed metal in the past. But this stuff is really good. Andi Deris is no Michael Kiske on the vocals, but he does exceptionally well on the older material. There is not much bad to say about this CD and it ranks about the same as the Whitesnake Live In The Still of the Night. Stand out tracks include: “Mrs. God”, “I Want Out”, “Mr. Torture”, “Keeper of the Seven Keys” (with it’s awesome little twin guitar hammer on/pull off section that sounds very classical). The sound production is excellent, by the way. Surprised that I’m the first person to rate this…
This album sounds great,the song “the king for a 1000 years” its amazing live(yeah 13 minutes with 17 seconds) the track list is magnificent and no question why did they choose brazil,brazilian audience has a lot of energy,they make you feel there all through the album…good job helloween!
