Walls of Jericho Reviews

Reviewer :    (80/100)
Date : 
EP데뷔앨범과 함께 국내에 합본형태로 발매된 Walls Of Jericho 앨범으로 전작과 크게 다르지 않은 Speed Metal을 구사한다. 아직 정제되지 않은 거친 Thrash 사운드를 들려주고 있는데, 발매당시 평론가들로부터 상당한 평가를 얻어 내었던 것으로 기억한다. Keeper Of The Seven Keys 시리즈의 모습을 어느정도 찾아볼 수는 있으나, Helloween이 이후 그토록 엄청난 업그레이드를 보여 주리라 누가 예상이나 했을까. 초기명곡 How Many Tears등을 담고 있다.
