Interesting news. I never thought I'd see them back on Nuclear Blast. I always had the feeling they didn't part on particular good terms. That being said, I hope it's a good omen and they return to the quality of their previous Nuclear Blast releases "The Dark Ride" and "Rabbit Don’t Come Easy". "Rabbit..." has it weak spots, but overall it was the last Helloween album I really enjoyed for a longer period of time. Everything since then has been good, but somehow didn't have a longer lasting effect on me.

Walls of Jericho was really difficult to acquire on CD. Listening to it now I am loving this record right through. Heavy rocking type of album.
Victim of Fate does have an Iron Maidenish feel to it in my opinion.

Not trying to be a smartass mate, but "Victim of Fate" is actually from the first Helloween EP (from 1985), which is usually included on CD releases of "Walls of Jericho" (Track 1-5)! The EP and "Walls..." will always be my favourite Helloween releases.

Got some more of their albums on the way in the mail. Won't be far off having their entire discography.

^^You getting Pink Bubbles Go Ape and Chameleon too? Those two albums are...well 'soft Helloween' not terrible or anything but really knocked their fans for six when they came out.

I have all their CD's.:D

Yeah those are two of what I ordered. I know they seemed to not be their most widely accepted efforts but I'll give them a shot anyway. :)

Have you got "The Dark Ride"...? That one went over like a lead balloon, its grown on me over the years but will never be my favorite of their discog.
