Heelloween

Helloween is a Heavy Metal band from Germany. Founded 1984 in Hamburg
by Kai Hansen (vocals, guitars), Michael Weikath (guitars), Markus Grosskopf
(bass) and Ingo Schwichtenberg (drums), the band achieved a major success at
the end of the eighties with the albums “Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part 1 & 2".

Helloween managed to create their own unique style, which combines
virtuosity with complexity and a bit of mainstream. After tensions at the
beginning of the nineties, Helloween made a comeback in 1994 with
“Master Of The Rings”. Despite several lineup-changes, the band remained
highly prolific and is still one of the world’s leading Heavy Metal acts of today.
