Helloween Releases "Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. 1"
Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 1 is the second studio album from German power metal/heavy metal band Helloween, released in 1987.
It marks the first appearance of vocalist Michael Kiske, and is considered to be one of Helloween's best albums, credited by many to be the birth of power metal. "Future World" was released as a single and a music video (omitting over 8 minutes of the song) was made for "Halloween." The band originally planned to release Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 1 and Part 2 as a double album, but their record label refused, insisting that the albums be released separately.
