      Helloween's twelfth album (2005).

      When a band is already suffering constant comparisons to an age-old 'classic era,' it doesn't help to name the latest album directly after the revered classics themselves, in arrogant expectation that they will actually live up to the beloved early works. While it doesn't manage to tarnish the 'Keeper of the Seven Keys' legacy itself, this third instalment is still a very average and predictable entry into the Helloween canon that doesn't even sound like the albums it intends to stand alongside in the annals of heavy metal history.

      For a band that was always best when basing songs around simplistic, catchy riffs and choruses, there's too much emphasis here on attempts to attain an 'epic' sound through the use of keyboard orchestration and Rhapsody-style narration. The first few songs are also far too long, before the album finally settles down and starts to throw out some acceptable power metal songs, even if the eighties throwback style of those such as 'Mrs. God' end up being more annoying than nostalgic. The speed returns for 'Silent Rain' and energetic finale 'My Life For One More Day' among others, but on the whole this feels like it's a disc too long, and should have been allocated a less argumentative title.
