Critique

La mode des diptyques musicaux était apparue dans les années 1970, lancée par quelques groupes de hard rock qui souhaitaient mettre leurs thèmes de prédilection en vis-à-vis, opposition Yin/yang sous forme musicale. Si le Part I se veut diablement Yin, le Part II lui répond de manière angéliquement Yang.

Premier diptyque véritablement orienté power metal (ou speed mélodique, le débat n’est pas clos). Placés sous le thème de l’heroic fantasy, les deux albums se répondent sur le ton du Bien contre le Mal, du Gondor contre le Mordor, du côté clair de la Force contre le côté obscur... Huit morceaux pour le Part I, dix pour le Part II, les disques ne sont pas vraiment un reflet l’un de l’autre, sinon symboliquement.

De même, si le premier est plutôt placé sous le signe du metal mélodique (« Twilight of the Gods » ou « Follow the Sign » rappellent quelque peu Cinderella, voire certains morceaux poétiques de Manowar), le deuxième opus s’inscrit davantage dans un metal plus rapide et agressif.

Album conceptuel et thématique, Keeper of the Seven Keys fut celui par lequel Helloween réussit à définir son style et perça sur une scène heavy alors très encombrée. - Copyright 2016 Music Story

Premier volet d'une duologie (qui deviendra trilogie sur le tard), la première partie de "Keeper of the Seven Keys" est un chef d'oeuvre qui voit entrer dans le line-up du groupe un jeune chanteur génial, Michael Kiske à la tessiture impressionnante. Son timbre viendra parfaitement servir les duos de guitare que se livrent Michael Weikath et Kai Hanse, ce dernier étant libéré du fardeau de la voix pour se concentrer pleinement sur son instrument. Le résultat set sompteux et les compos atteignent un rare niveau d'excellence, tant en termes de mélodies que de construction (on retiendar bien sûr le titre "Halloween"). Indispensable pour tous les amateurs de heavy metal.

Ces derniers temps, j'ai passé un peu de temps avec un Peintre. Pas un gars qui barbouille le dimanche après-midi. Un mec qui, dès gamin, sans savoir vraiment pourquoi, passait des heures dans sa chambre à dessiner une fleur, encore et toujours la même fleur... Un mec qui a filé à Paris dès sa majorité pour pouvoir crayonner au Louvre tous les matins, en enfilant l'après-midi tous les petits jobs possibles et imaginables afin de payer le loyer du minuscule studio dans lequel chaque nuit, invariablement, il peignait. Un mec, qui après deux décennies d'apprentissage, de rencontres, de vaches maigres encaissées sans sourciller, vit finalement aujourd'hui de sa passion, exposant et vendant partout dans le Monde.

Je lui demandai un jour, stupidement finalement, si ces années sans le sou n'avaient pas été trop dures, et comment il avait trouvé le courage de continuer. Il m'a alors regardé comme si j'étais le dernier des abrutis, en m'expliquant que jamais, il n'avait eu le choix. Qu'encore aujourd'hui, tous les jours, il était dans son atelier de 5h du matin jusqu'à 21h le soir, et que si pour une raison ou une autre, il lui était impossible de peindre dans la journée, il se trouvait mal; mal physiquement.

Je me suis tu. Ce type m'avait brusquement rappelé ce qui définit un Artiste. Ce besoin indomptable de créer, cette transe dans laquelle on rentre, ce sentiment parfois de sortir de soi, de ne plus s'appartenir, de faire des choses sans qu'on n'y puisse rien faire...

HASH(0x9a741b88) étoiles sur 5 Remastered & some extras 17 août 2006
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Looking at this as a fan of the album when it originally came it, it's not bad. If you're looking to check out Helloween for the first time, this is a great place.

First of, a remaster of one of the best metal albums ever is always a good thing! The liner notes are great, reprinting the orginal album sleeve artwork and also offering an intereview with a member of the band.

The bonus offerings, are not so bonus...

If you own "The Best, The Rest, The Rare" you already have Victim of Fate.

The Starlight remix is good.

The alt version of A Little Time is not much different from the original, which I prefer.

Still trying to figure out why they included the video edit version of Halloween. Having been listening to the 13 minute original version for over 15 years, this is just horrible. I've seen the video and understand they need to cut it down about 10 minutes but it just doesn't work in that context. If you heard this without knowing it was an edited down version you'd wonder what the band was thinking.

Overall, if you have this already you may want to skip over it. But if the original album artwork and remastering are your thing, then check it out.

HASH(0x9a741c60) étoiles sur 5 All-time classic power metal album - finally remastered 25 octobre 2006
Par Justin G. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
When you hear the term "power metal", or more specifically "European Power Metal", Helloween has to be one of the first bands that come to mind, largely due to the impact of this particular album (and its companion piece Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. 2). Both albums completely reestablished both the band's sound as well as the whole idea of what power metal was all about. This is due largely to Kai Hansen adopting a more epic approach to his songwriting (as opposed to the Judas Priest style thrashers on Walls of Jericho) as well as the addition of vocalist Michael Kiske, who brought a powerful yet melodic aspect to Helloween's sound.

The way Helloween paired soaring melodies with metal aggression was inspired, and songs like "I'm Alive," "Future World" and "Halloween" essentially served as the blueprint for the new brand of power metal. I don't think the impact of the Keeper albums can be overstated. In the two decades since they were originally released, their sound has been adopted, adapted, and flat out imitated by countless bands. Without Helloween, there would be no Blind Guardian, no Rhapsody, no Edguy, at least not as we now know them.

If you're a power metal fan and for whatever reason haven't heard Keeper of the Seven Keys Part I, you need to order this album now. It truly belongs in every power metal fan's collection.

That said, why on earth has it taken 20 freaking years to get remastered versions of the Keeper albums? In an age where even the most recent bands keep reissuing their albums, we had to go way to long without a sonically improved Keeper of the Seven Keys Part I. Well, Sanctuary finally got around to the job in 2006, and they certainly did it right. In addition to digitally remastered sound (which is quite good despite what a previous reviewer would have you believe), you get four bonus tracks. The remixed/alternate/edited versions of existing songs don't add much, but adding the b-side "Victim of Fate" was a nice touch. You also get expanded liner notes by Metal Hammer scribe Dave Ling, photos, etc. plus a nifty slipcase for the disc.

This is what a remastered version of a classic album is supposed to look and sound like. If you're a Helloween fan and already own this album, it's time to replace your old version.

HASH(0x9a745138) étoiles sur 5 Green Andy Reviews: Helloween - Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 1 4 octobre 2009
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I first heard this band on a 10-song compilation cassette called THRASH METAL that my mom bought for me at K-Mart ($3.99). They're not exactly thrash, but I wasn't arguing, half because I was too young to know what the genre was, and half because the song ("I'm Alive") was freaking amazing. That feelgood power metal anthem is a bright spot on this album, but it's not the only one. Usually referred to as Helloween's best album (and miles ahead of the follow-up, Part 2), this record established the band as major players, or at least medium-level players, in the European power metal arena. In fact, some particularly rabid fans have suggested this album is the official beginning of power metal. But take that with a grain of salt.

If there's a storyline here, I'm not really getting it. Singer Michael Kiske's lyrics stay consistently in the fantasy realm, but what sticks with you much more are his Halford-esque melodic shriekings, perhaps best displayed in "A Little Time". But Helloween don't have any of the menace or malevolence of Judas Priest; their music is all medieval valor and gothic wonder. The dual soloing from guitarists Kai Hansen and Michael Weikath is stellar, and this album contains what I imagine ought to be the band's theme song, the epic-length "Halloween".

Occasionally the group's melodies are a little overwrought, such as on "Future World", whose chorus crosses the line from pompous into outright hilarious. Still, if you're going to enjoy power metal, you have to have a higher-than-normal level of patience for higher-than-normal levels of grandiosity. Later groups like Iced Earth, Hammerfall and Tad Morose have all had the same indulgences, but none of them have made a record as consistently thrilling as this one. Buy this and prepare to pretend you're riding a horse on top of a mountain, fighting a dragon.

HASH(0x9a745504) étoiles sur 5 The beginning of a new genre in metal! + Bonus Tracks 19 juillet 2007
Par John - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Helloween's best album (together with part II) now EXPANDED, containing 2 must have Bonus Tracks and Remastered; providing an improved sound quality compared to the original release of 1987.

By combining influences such as Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Queen, Rainbow and Queensryche together with fast double bass drumming, higher pitched and melodic vocals, fabulous twin-guitar solos and catchy riffs, Helloween achieved to lay the foundations for European power metal, as it is known today.

In Keeper Of The Seven Keys part I the band changed its sound, from the speed metal that dominated their debut album, to a much more melodic, technical and epic approach. The songs were still fast paced and heavy but contained catchy melodies, memorable choruses, outstanding vocals and evoked an uplifting feeling.

Besides the captivating music, a new charismatic vocalist named "Michael Kiske" joins the band to take this album to the skies! Influenced by Bruce Dickinson and Geoff Tate; but equipped with more emotion and charisma, 18 year old Kiske makes this album a must have for any metal and hard rock fan. (Kiske is still considered one of the best and most copied vocalists in the heavy metal genre)

The album begins with an operatic marching type intro which successfully sets the mood of the album. The intro leads nicely into the fast paced and uplifting "I'm Alive". The song carries an optimistic message and includes a memorable chorus, fast drumming, raving guitar solos and twin-guitar harmonies.

The heavy "A Little Time" comes next with another catchy chorus and an addictive guitar riff, while the melodic mid range vocals in the verses sound really emotional and warm.

The power ballad "A Tale that wasn't Right" arrives to slow things down a bit. It's strongest points are the truly emotional vocals and the wonderfully played guitar solo.

"Twilight Of The Gods" continues in the same vain as I'm Alive but is more epic, contains more intense vocals and a chorus that you'll never forget.

The heavy metal anthem and most famous track "Future World" follows next. It is performed in mid-tempo, includes one of the best twin-guitar solos of the album, funny lyrics and vocals that vary from low range to really high-pitched.

Next comes the true masterpiece of the album "Halloween"; an operatic, fast, progressive, melodic power metal hymn raving over 13 minutes (which never gets long nor tiresome). Halloween is probably one of the best metal epics ever. It contains an eerie chorus, tempo changes, varying vocals, choirs and hundreds of guitar riffs, leads and solos.

All of these songs are still considered classics and are also some of the best power metal songs ever written.

Bonus Tracks: "Victim Of Fate" and "Starlight" are two truly amazing renditions of older songs, originally from the Helloween EP, with Michael Kiske on vocals.

Even if you are not a metal fan, this album will please you or even blow you away with the mythical and uplifting atmosphere it creates and the technically proficient orchestration it achieves.

Will be loved by Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Queensryche, Rainbow...fans. Just listen...you'll be amazed!

(Definitely check out Keeper Of The Seven Keys pt II!!)

HASH(0x9a7455e8) étoiles sur 5 Well, it certainly is a Keeper! 26 août 2008
Par Angelo Reyes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Tossing my horrible review title aside, this album is a great piece of power metal mastery. I know I'm only echoing other reviewers here when I say this album is incredible. The entire band is in top form here and every song is a classic. There are no dull moments at ALL in this album. My favorite track is of course the 13-minute epic "Halloween." The double guitar tremolo melodies in this track keep me coming back for more. The remaster definitely sounds better than the previous release. If you already have that, then throw it in a dumpster or give it to a used CD store, because you won't be needing it anymore.

Keeper of the Seven Keys Pt. 1 is Helloween's greatest album and no metal fan should be without it. Be sure to check out Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. 2
