Title: Anyone heard this...

There's a track by Helloween called 'The Game Is On', off their album 'Master Of The Rings'. It's a standard power metal track, but includes quite a few video game samples in places. Nowhere near as many as MaSu and it's not the same style, but one could argue that it's a very very very very early forcast of what was to later come with the genius of MaSu.

No they don't.

Gamma Ray do, though. And later (after Kai left the group) Iron Saviour.

Yeah, I've heard the track. I'm a huge Helloween fan after all. Of course it includes video game sounds, but it's not really gamer music, as the song in itself is rather a swipe at gaming more than anything else.

And, as for the second debate, while I like Gamma Ray, I prefer Helloween if only because they're a lot more versatile... And I like Helloween's duel shredding better.
