Yeah. Back in the day when I only knew 'I Want Out'... I was in a record store with quite many Helloween albums, wanted to buy a few of them and chose purely based on cover arts. Kept buying them the same way until I had them all. Got to hear all the singers since my first albums were Walls of Jericho, classic Keepers and The Time of the Oath

Yeah I remember I got into Iced Earth for a while because of the album cover. Same with Avantasia. Eventually you could scan the CD and listen to samples, but before then it was more like pick by the book cover.

I used to check discounts for random power metal albums while I was about to buy something else from some online store. Gave a chance on youtube to some cheap CDs that had nice/interesting cover. If it was good, I bought. Doing that I found at least French band Heavenly :lol:

Anyways saw this:

No clue what is the source for this wikipedia information. I checked several articles on metal medias and saw nothing (Skyfall was already confirmed to be Hansen song). Also the single seems to have at least 12 different LP releases from Nuclear Blast :lol:

Interesting! I'm excited for this album, really. I find it amusing that Kiske was kept away from writing songs. :lol:

edit: Liking it more and more each listen. The chorus is a bit of meh, not bad but the good stuff is definitely elsewhere in the song. The actual album version is longer by 5 minutes, so interesting to hear that one.
