It was released on May 29, It is their seventh consecutive album produced by Charlie Bauerfeindand their first album released under the label Nuclear Blast since 's Rabbit Don't Come Easy. This song, along with "Battle's Won" were available for instant download only with the album pre-order in iTunes.
The album is considered by the band as a "back to the roots" album, while still keeping some modern elements. When the album was announced, Weikath said it would be "just good old classic heavy metal the way it's supposed to be". I wouldn't say commercial, it's more friendly. That was also what Charlie wanted to do, it's typical of '80s Helloween and modern Helloween at the same Stormblåst (Live) - Dimmu Borgir - Godless Savage Garden. We didn't want to worry too much about concepts and what to do, and just be the ones that we are.
We just wanted to do what we stand for, what we're known for. And that works Army Of The Lord - B.B.
King - Sings Spirituals very very good I think. Weikath and vocalist Andi Deris agreed there would be "haters" to pan the album, but they intended to keep a "liberal attitude towards heavy metal: to do anything we want — and not follow the directions the know-it-alls would have pushed on us.
We remained unfazed and acted out our vision of 'anything goes' in the songwriting process to 'My God-Given Right' because we believe that it is our god-given-right no pun intended to do as we please and fulfill our musical vision without any boundaries. The band composed 33 or 34 songs for the album and had producer Bauerfeind and his team chose the ones that would form the final track list.
Deris explained the method by saying: . During my research, I stumbled upon the blockbuster Day After Tomorrow and the idea of just leaving the world to the 'pumpkins' was born. In a later interview, he deepened his thoughts, explaining he didn't feel like following "the leader" and "the rules" like a "good German", but instead wished to Claws - Helloween - My God-Given Right his own dreams.
He also referred to the many Germans Where You At - Pro - The Black Out his generation that committed suicide, which he blames on them not following their dreams.
When asked about the lyrical themes in the album, compared to the world issues covered in songs from the previous album Straight Out of HellDeris explained that the band didn't want a pessimist album to mark their 30th anniversary, but cited songs such as "Swing of a Fallen World" Claws - Helloween - My God-Given Right "You, Still of War" as examples of tracks that stay out of the "Happy Happy Helloween" One Last Chance - Orden Ogan - Gunmen. Also according to him, the songs go through the members' lives.
The opening track "Heroes" refers to everyday heroes, like poor people having to "fight each day to survive and have something on their tables", people asking for a penny on the streets and those who make any act of kindness. Inspiration for the title track is the same for the album title. The video depicts a female warrior fleeing and defending herself from an army of "robotic pumpkin soldiers" until she is cornered and decides to throw them a bomb shaped like the torch of the Statue of Liberty.
According to Sommer, the video is purposely reminiscent of post-apocalyptic films. They were at an unspecified airport, and their flight was canceled, forcing Claws - Helloween - My God-Given Right to wait 17 hours for the next one. When they finally took off, the pilot eventually announced something was wrong with the airplane and they would need to fly back to the airport, since they didn't even know where they were - they were "lost in America ".
Weikath, who wrote the song, said he tried to capture the essence of old hard rock clubs in Claws - Helloween - My God-Given Right track's intro.
The song talks about an unspecified flying object or being that flies around looking for its prey. Writing for All About The RockTim Jones said "If you like your metal to still sound like it did in the 80s and early 90s, you'll probably love this, but if you've never listened to Helloween before there are better places to start.

It hurts. So these decisions should actually be done by other people, they like what Tumbling Tumbleweeds - Gene Autry - His Golden Hits do.
You have a big question mark over your head, what should you do? I definitely had that dream of making music like so many kids have, but I was very fortunate to have Stupid Cupid - Various - Kpm-331 Archives Volume 7 father who completely backed me up.
He said 'you're my only son — if I see you happy, you make me happy and it's your God-given right to do what you want with your life, or at least give it a try. And whatever you do, I'm behind you. I told my son what his Grandfather told me and I thought it's a beautiful title for a song. That's very serious song. Bombs speaking to the last survivor of the mankind so it's a very brutal theme actually.
Which could automatically happen if we step time back where we came from. Because we all grew up during the 80's, and the new generation don't even know about all those things, about a feeling that we had with all Russian and American nuclear shit going on and actually sometimes we in Germany thought that, okay if something happens we are wiped off from the map anyway, because when a war takes place it would be somewhere in mid Europe and mid Europe is Germany so we all grew up with that knowledge that tomorrow could be the last.
