Gambling with the Devil

Helloween - Gambling with the Devil - 2007 - SPV
Gambling with the Devil (2007) sold me on the premise that melodic speed hadn't exhausted all it's possibilities--guitars sear and the drums excite in the aggressive power of 'Kill It', the glorious power of "The Saints", the inspiring power of "Paint A New World" and the lighter 'Dreambound'. Andi, you've made enough of a mark on this one that I can believe Helloween are worthy to be grand supporters of the lofty power metal tower again. I am reborn under the baptizing fire of the savage pupmkin masters.
Bottom Line: For Euro-power fans, this one's not a gamble to pick-up.
On a side note, the computer generated covers Helloween have been using are just plain ugly.
