Rare 1989 South Korean pressing with 4 page insert

The U.K.’s installment of Helloween’s live mini-album assault of 1989 was by far the most rewarding of the bunch, and collected most of their biggest hits at the time. This concert was recorded in late 1988 in Scotland, when Helloween were at the peak of their career and is the last recording featuring legendary guitarist and songwriter Kai Hansen. From the first song to the last, the band plays almost flawlessly with a lot of energy and emotion. Sound-wise, these recordings are clear and punchy. The highlight of this album is the last track ‘How Many Tears’. A lengthy (9 minutes long) epic and really fast track, filled with double-bass drumming, which offers some great tempo changes. It starts of furiously with Ingo pounding his drums in insane speed, while never lifting his feet from the double-bass. Soon the vocals come in and the song really elevates to epic proportions. Emotional mid range vocals and perfectly clear and strong high pitched vocal delivery by Michael Kiske who sings lyrics surrounding warfare and human suffering. After the outstanding chorus a technical twin guitar solo commences which around the 3:40 minute mark brakes down to a very slow, wonderfully played harmonic part. Wonderfully executed and emotional guitar solos give way to a thunderous drum fill at 5:45 that brings back the initial speed of the song and keeps that pace until the melodic ending (this version of the song is considered a masterpiece amongst Helloween fans). Although all band members are in top form, especially guitarists Hansen and Weikath who play wonderfully showing all their wares, vocalist Michael Kiske is the star of the night! Throughout the whole concert his voice reaches to the heavens, hitting high-pitched notes with such emotion and precision, never heard before by any other singer in metal. If you enjoyed ‘Keeper Of The Seven Keys part I & II’ you will LOVE this album, as it is the only live experience with this line up.
