Second European re-release of the third full-length studio album by legendary German Power/Speed Metal band.
The album capitalized on the success of “Keeper Of The Seven Keys, Part I” and picks up where it left off. The magic that made "Keeper Of The Seven Keys, Part I", a triumph of epic proportions, was still very much in the air come time for "Keeper Of The Seven Keys, Part II". What was originally intended to be a double album had to be split in two at the record company’s request, so "Keeper Of The Seven Keys, Part II" was recorded later and came out in 1988. Gladly, "Part II" a much longer album than "Part I", clocking in with an extra fifteen minutes or so of music.
"Keeper of the Seven Keys, Part II" is a very worthy follow up to the first album of the pair, as well as one of the best albums of 1988. Building upon the Power Metal blueprint (still known as Speed Metal by most in 1988), "Keeper II" offered listeners classy Metal with a strong sense of humor, a great selling point in a genre that has long taken itself far too seriously for its existence. The band still brandished their polished speed sound on songs like "Eagle Fly Free" as well as anthemic tunes like "I Want Out", "Save Us" or the powerful "We Got the Right". And naturally the band finished out the saga with the thirteen minute-plus epic "Keeper of the Seven Keys", a multilayered and far ranging song that ended the two album theme.
"Keeper Of The Seven Keys, Part II" is a phenomenal album that was altogether fun, flawlessly played and well written. The album went Gold in Germany. Success bloomed all over Europe, Asia and even the United States.
In every sense of the word, this album is a musthave for every Metalhead in the world!!
