--------------------ORIGINAL TAPER'S NOTES----------------------

Helloween - Live at the Metro in Sydney, Australia
October 16, 2015

Source/Lineage: Core Sounds Cardioids (pointed towards stage to minimise crowd noise) -> Sony PCM-M10 (mic-in, 48kHz 24 bit) -> Soundforge 11.0 w/Izotope Ozone 6 Mastering Plugin -> FLAC Level 8

Recorded, mastered and processed by: Yours truly ... Starclassic.

Location: Third riser from dancefloor, slightly stage right, behind audio desk.

After a way too long seven years, Helloween finally graced our shores again and we couldn't be more thankful for it. These guys are absolutely relentless, unwavering and tireless - even in the face of technical difficulties, as you'll notice after the boring drum solo (and yes, I am a drummer).

The show itself was fantastic, running just over 100 minutes, the crowd eating out of the palm of Andi's hand. Lots of humour, Michael making all sorts of fake guitar solo faces and poses, Markus performing a brief stand up comedy routine, Sascha making light of his technical difficulties, it was a truly entertaining show which left everyone with a big smile on their face at the end of it.

Technically, the sound guy did a job not all that different from seven years ago - too much of the high hats, too much of the vocals. I've done my best to try and tame it without killing the rest of the dynamics because the guitars were actually pretty good, bass included. So in light of yet another challenging Helloween recording, I'm giving this one a C.

So, please, take a listen to the samples and be your own judge for the fear of not wasting your ratio.

...and please, don't sell this bootleg, otherwise you're just plain old scum. That and Andi will send someone Straight Out of Hell to get you.
