I also wonder what they were thinking naming the album Virgin Killer? That idiotic choice falls completely on the band.

The song lyrics are a clumsy attempt to tell you that time essentially robs you of innocence.

 

Which is still a clumsy title, but make that the album title AND add the artwork, you're left with cringe. Of the "you might get arrested buying this album in public" variety.

My guess is some cocky or know nothing exec didn’t understand the difference between edgy and pedophilic.

They knew it was outrageous and went ahead with it. I think they thought they were the edginess edge that ever edged

Helloween- Walls Of Jericho 

 

I never realised Keeper pt1 wasn't their debut! Walls Of Jericho came up in conversation on a group I'm on today, and I can see why its beloved by the fan base. What a strong debut! Definitely can hear the influence they had on Blind Guardian (though I think that BG's first two albums were better than this overall).

 

Helloween are fantastic. I don't think they come close to BG overall but I definitely enjoy them a lot.

Professional wrestler Chris Jericho got his wrestling name and the name of his finishing move (the walls of Jericho) from this album.

Honestly, Blind Guardians first two albums do this sound so much better. But maybe worth a try?

Triumph- Allied Forces 

Helloween- Pink Bubbles Go Ape

 

I think it's truly amazing Helloween made a global impact. I know they came first, but my GOD they have a tonne of terrible albums.

 

Pink Bubbles is bad but its also amongst their least awful.

 

And yet I'm enjoying them, go figure

I've heard mostly bad things about their stuff after the first three albums. I never bothered with anything else besides those three.

Dio-Sacred Heart (8/10)

 

I remember when i was getting into Dio Everything thing i read said Sacred heart was a letdown.  and I guess in the context of those first 2 it is......but  still really enjoy it

 

Particulary the title song, Rock And Roll Children, Just Another day and Fallen Angel.

 

Hungry for Heaven as a single would have rubbed the strict metal bros the wrong way and Shoot Shoot have possibly the stupidest hook i've ever heard but i really like everything else.

The latest album is great, hence me taking a look back.

 

I'm not sure why Helloween are iconic amongst metal bands, because their friends and fellow German natives Blind Guardian do everything so much better, bigger and grander.

Iconic is not a word I would use to describe them. Iconic is bands like Maiden, Metallica, Priest. Overall they're mid tier in the grand scheme of metal. Their first three albums help build the groundwork for the power metal genre and that's pretty much it. They're not that big of a band and they have been pretty much living off those three albums for close to four decades now.

I think you're right. I just remember them being really revered in my formative years as a metal fan. Maybe I'm remembering them as being a lot more popular than they actually are
