30 years and not outdatedat all. 30 years and still going strong and that‘s good. After an extremely successful world tour 2007/08 they dedicated special attention to the new record "7 Sinners" which is their 15th studio record. The new stuff is outstanding regarding the sound and the production. Tight songs with a lot of drive testify the bands statement that the record will be the band’s heaviest and fastest effort in years. Fast and energetic Power Metal which has made this band so popular and successful that everybody associate the German-based band with high quality Metal since the 80s. They gained greater confidence and projected this onto the 13 new songs. In the year 2010 the band is more mature and tougher.
