is the eleventh studio album by German Keeper of the Seven Keys: The Legacy power metal band Helloween, released in 2005. [2 ] The musicians, [3 ] Andi Deris (vocals), Michael Weikath (guitar), Markus Grosskopf (bass guitar), Sascha Gerstner (guitar) and new addition Dani Löble (drums, ex- Rawhead Rexx), see this recording in direct context with their 1987 and 1988 classics Keeper of the Seven Keys, Parts I and II. The album is a double CD with nearly 80 minutes playing time and comes in a digipack with 6 flaps. Keeper of the Seven Keys - The Legacy leans more towards the genre of progressive power metal than the previous album, , which was much more of a Rabbit Don't Come Easy power metal album. It was produced by Charlie Bauerfeind (Blind Guardian, Halford, Rage) and features Blackmore's Night singer Candice Night on the track "Light The Universe".
The opening intro of the song "Occasion Avenue" uses samples from "Halloween", "Eagle Fly Free" and "Keeper of the Seven Keys" with Michael Kiske on vocals. One of the samples is a clip from a previously unreleased live version of "Keys" with Kiske singing the first part of the chorus and the crowd joining in.
