Rockpalast 77 DVD *25.11.05*

The Rainbow concert in Munich, Germany, 1977, one of the most eagerly awaited releases ever, is being prepared for official release at last. This is the only known concert by the Blackmore / Powell / Dio incarnation to be filmed in full. It will appear first in Japan, probably as a two single-layer disc NTSC set. Contrary to the impression given in some news sources, it WILL then appear in the rest of the world early in 2006 but as a single disc dual layer release.

The European edition will contain an extra commentary, written by Rainbow biographer Roy Davies, extra packaging, etc. As well as the full concert (including guitar demolition and some great shots of the famous electronic rainbow), there are interviews, extra Rainbow promos etc. This show has been bootlegged extensively in a number of formats, but this new release will be pristine quality with remastered audio etc. Those who have seen the test copy say its excellent. For those who never saw Rainbow in their early days, a real treat. For those who did, a reminder of what an awesome band they were at the time. More detail as we get it.

You can pre-order this now at dpas mail order, (search with the title ‘Rockpalast 77’)

HELLOWEEN: Early Albums To Be Reissued

HELLOWEEN‘s entire pre-Nuclear Blast catalog will reportedy be reissued via Sanctuary during 2006. The albums will apparently be remastered and will contain bonus tracks, including b-sides and other rarities, the details of which have yet to be revealed.

The following albums will be re-released on January 30, 2006:

  • «Walls of Jericho» (1985) (double CD)
  • «Keeper of the Seven Keys Part I» (1987) (single CD)
  • «Keeper of the Seven Keys Part II» (1988) (double CD)
  • «Pink Bubbles Go Ape» (1991) (single CD)

HELLOWEEN‘s latest album, «Keeper of the Seven Keys – The Legacy», is available now on SPV Records. The lineup on the record includes singer Andi Deris, guitarists Michael Weikath and Sascha Gerstner, bassist Markus Großkopf and drummer Dani Löble (ex-RAWHEAD REXX). Produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (BLIND GUARDIAN, HALFORD, RAGE), «Keeper of the Seven Keys – The Legacy» was released as a high-quality digipack with six flaps.

El «Walls Of Jericho» es uno de los discos de los que me hubiese gustado hablar (quizás lo haga más adelante). Sé que soy un poco heterodoxo, pero me gusta más que los «Keeper Of The Seven Keys». De hecho, la parte que más me gusta del disco es la más antigua, la que se corresponde con el mini LP original de Helloween [wiki] (incluso prefiero en muchos aspectos la voz de Kai Hansen sobre la de Michael Kiske). A pesar de tener ya el disco con esas canciones (y canciones del EP «Judas»), le echaré un ojo a la versión remasterizada. Siendo un CD doble, espero que traiga más contenidos que alguna versión en directo. Con todo, me parece que simplemente es un producto para intentar aliviar la precaria situación de Sanctuary [wiki].
