Top Ten Metal Songs of the 1980s by German Bandssomekindofaguy
The Top Ten
This is definitely the most mindblowing German metal song of the 80s and deserves the most respect for its epicness - for both composition and performance (4-11 guitar solos and great vocals, especially towards the end). Helloween haven't created anything more remarkable than this - neither before nor after it. - Metal_Treasure
The metal part starts around 1:47 - somekindofaguy
Find the live version from "Imaginations through the looking glass" DVD - you just don't need the studio version.
It's speed metal and is crazy fast start to finish. Not only drums, guitars are also very fast. - Metal_Treasure
This song is known mostly for its amazing chorus but I would say the riff is also interesting and pretty brutal for power metal. Drumming, lyrics and vocals are very good, too.
On this song sample, after the riff, you hear Kai Hansen singing lead vocals as a guest musician. Kai Hansen was in Helloween at the time. - Metal_Treasure
