Songs for Today: It's October 31! What's more appropriate than this track by power metal legends Helloween? From their seminal Keeper of the Seven Keys Part I, this is "Halloween." Take some time for this one, it's a bit over thirteen minutes long. But it remains as a key example of when power metal works. There's time for everyone in the band to shine, the lyrics are expressive, and despite it's length, it doesn't get repetitive. Of course, the riffs are tasty like your favorite candy.

Other scores are OK, but let's make sure the comments here are primarily about the Devils and this game. Also, let's respect each other, there's no need for drama or unwelcome nature of any sort. This is a gamethread, let's focus on the game. Thank you for reading and commenting. Go Devils!
