HELLOVVEEN Gambling With The Devil
From page 54 of Classic Rock Magazine November 2007
Power metal four-piece give the wheel a twelfth spin. Their twelfth studio album sees Helloween once more ploughing their time-honoured power metal turf, no better or worse than they've done before.
The single, the atypical As Long As I Fall, has an infectious chorus that might embarrass the more hardcore metallers, but redressing the balance is the double bass-drum fury of Kill It, Paint A New World and the epic Heaven Tells No Lies (a near retread of Rainbow's A Light In The Black) IME and The Bells Of The 7 Hells are good too, but Can Do It is Glitter Band awful. Good news for Halloween fans, but nothing here to touch the unconverted.
