Helloween vs. Ghost – Most Haunting Halloween Track, Round 1
Helloween have always been about the pumpkins and the majesty of October. The epic opus 'Halloween" closes out The Keeper of the Seven Keys, Pt. I (save for the short outro) in grand fashion. Michael Kiske’s voice flies off the handle, running the gamut of his range as he toils away in a spirited performance about the holiday. They even give a nod to Charlie Brown: “Someone's sitting in a field, never giving yield / Sitting there with gleaming eyes, waiting for big pumpkin to arise / Bad luck if you get a stone / Like the good old Charlie Brown / You think Linus could be right / The kids will say it's just a stupid lie.”
Ghost have taken the metal world by storm over the last couple of years, utilizing powerful imagery with their costumes and stage design. To say Ghost are a prime Halloween band would be a gross understatement with songs like “Ghuleh / Zombie Queen” which describes the regal dead: “The moon is full, and shines an evil blinding light / Under a monolithic likeness, marble white / Zombie Queen - Zombie Queen / Black light guides you! / Ghuleh - Ghuleh!”
