HELLOWEEN Mrs.God CD single, SPV (2005)
Helloween are back with a new album, 'Keeper Of The Seven Keys - The Legacy' due out the end of October and this is the first single lifted of that album. 'Mrs. God' is a cracking slice of classic Helloween with plenty of time changes, tasty riffs, harmony filled chorus plus a quirky midsection featuring a bass solo and a sheep! Vocalist Andi Deris in fine form. Defiantly a track that will suit airplay and the TV music channels like 'Kerrang!' and 'Scuzz'. Two other tracks on here are 'The Ring For A 1,000 Years', featuring plenty of keyboards and 'Run (The Name Of Your Enemy)' which is exclusive to this single release.
With a new label and what promises to be a fine album based on the two tracks on this single, Helloween looked poised show the newer bands like Dragonforce how classy power/speed metal should be done.
