Helloween EP-Helloween


1.Starlight
2.Murderer
3.Warrior
4.Victim Of Fate
5.Cry For Freedom

Released In 1985

The beginning of legendary power metal band Helloween's career was when they recorded this debut EP.This album, though mainly a speed metal album, is definitely an important album in power metal history, because it's the first case where a band took Maiden like melodies and combined them with the speed of early US power metal bands.This EP is by no doubt killer, but it is their debut and their sound hadn't been fully developed yet, and even though Kai Hansen is a good singer, he doesn't compare to later singers Michael Kiske and Andi Deris.The EP that started it all, and only the precursor to the power metal invasion that was to come.Best song is the vastly underrated heavy metal attack of "Murderer".
