To be honest, I've never heard a single song from this band, and I've only heard a lot of mixed opinions about them.

Anything worth checking out? Particular albums maybe?

I prefer Helloween's early stuff. The two tracks on the Death Metal comp. are my favorite, and the Walls of Jericho LP is total kick ass metal.

For me it's just Walls of Jericho and the self titled EP

Yeah those are mandatory for any speed metal fans.

Basically anything they did with Michael Kiske as vocalist is awesome (apart for Chameleon). There are some moments in the rest of the 90's albums after Kiske-era but generally those are very plagued with bad/uninspired/boring songs.

S/T MLP - Keeper II is mandatory stuff. Albums with Andi Deris on vocals I recommend are "Master of the Rings", "Time of the Oath" and "Gambling With the Devil".

The stuff with Hansen on vocals is mandatory. The MLP is one of the best speed metal releases ever and thoroughly great. Walls of Jericho is a step down, a bit silly in places and not as consistent, but overall it's still very good and a continuation of the same style.

The Keeper albums are either must-buys or avoidable depending on whether you find Euro power metal abhorrent or not. They're still pretty heavy and ballsy and almost criminally catchy. The first one is the better one of the two.

Walls Of Jericho is great, quite dirty and raw production works well with killer epic melodies. Later they are too much sugar for my metal.

If you have the chance to go and see them on this current Pumpkins United tour, do it. One of the top 5 gigs I have ever been to. They do everything you could wish to hear- 1st ep/Jericho stuff with Kai singing, all the best Keeper songs with Kiske and Deris, and even an incredible version of How Many Tears with Hansen/Kiske/Deris singing. Almost 3 hour set. Magic.
