Helloween: Straight Out of Hell (2013)
This album proves that Helloween still has it. The album is fast, which has always been Helloween's strongest point, they did start out as a speed metal band after all. It features the consistently good, siren-like vocals of Andi Deris, who has been the singer since 1994 when Michael Kiske left the band. Deris has been one of the best singers Helloween has ever had. And of course there are a ton of catchy songs on this thing.
There really is not a lot to say about this release. Longtime fans of Helloween will definitely appreciate it. People who do not like the band or speed/power metal likely will not find anything to change their mind. Helloween has continued on a recent hot streak as this album stands up well with other albums the band has released lately.
