I voted against the title track. Never have liked it. Far too long, far too boring imo - March of Time should totally be up there though, I agree. Has anyone heard Luca Turilli's Rhapsody cover of it? Man, Alessandro Conti's voice is INSANE.

I find it hard to imagine that Helloween would keep this as the permanent line-up. What i predict though is sometime in the future after the tour they do a studio album with all included. Deris, Kiske, Hansen, Sascha, etc etc. Maybe a fourth Keepers or something else, then doing another big tour together. In fact, it'd be awesome if it was another keepers cuz then they can do a Keeper based tour.

"The pumpkins are united and we have a gift for you - 13202017"

In two days we'll get... what? a secret new song wrote by the extended lineup maybe? *crosses fingers*

Do You think that new album with Deris and Kiske together is possible? I don't know to be honest what's going on currently in Helloween's camp, only that They are preaparing for tour. Maybe I want too much but for ma, album with Kiske and Deris together, would be something bigggg. :)

As much as they intend it to be a one-off thing, who knows what money and a good attitude in the band will do.

The tour is shaping up to be a success, let's say it sells out everywhere and Kiske and Weikath don't want to kill each other, if two years from now promoters offer them more money for a second round, why would they refuse? where Helloween do even go from here, back to "just another" album with Deris? they've always been strong in Italy, they always played the same venue in Milan where Avantasia, Alice Cooper and Blind Guardian play (just to give a comparison), and for this concer they've been upgradted to the place Iron Maiden play when they have an indoor show.

Maybe if they do like Dio back with Iommi back in 2006 and do one step by one, they might feel like doing an album together. But of course 2019 is meant to be for Gamma Ray and maybe Unisonic...

Id love to hear an album with both Kiske and Deris on vocals. Allen/Lande style!

I remember reading a while back, that the other guys from Gamma Ray were about to launch a new band together. That would put Gamma Ray on indefinite hiatus. Maybe Kai is going to be busy with Helloween, far into the foreseeable future?

Anyway, that's just me speculating..

Do you mean The Unity?  They released their album in May and it was quite poor.

I hope they do a full album or nothing.  I'm hoping it's not just a random couple of songs, that would just feel incomplete to me.

:o

This is what I think it will be, just a full track in rehearsals at good quality.

I think it'd be best for all parties if all three singers just played in Helloween from now on and alternated on songs.  :lol

That littlr piece of music from Itunes sounds.... not promising :p vocals sound weird when Andi and Micheal singing together, separate is ok. But Hey, it's only one minute ;) and maybe there is more new songs out there :) and I'm sure that I will hear it in November live ;)

It's actually Kai singing along with Andi, Kiske comes in for the chorus, AKA the moment they suddenly cut the clip.

True! I was thinking at the beginning that this low voice is Micheal, but You are right. Kiske can sing anything and anywhere I fucking love his voice....

Yup, that's how I hear it. Can't wait. I'll buy the track for sure. Hopefully they put out an EP or something physical at some point. Maybe a live show with a few new studio tracks tagged on.

Yeah, can't get the link to work but let's see how this goes.  The track being called Pumpkins United seems pretty cheesy to me.

Honestly, wolfking, I find it a perfect title. Helloween always had a humorous element to them, particularly on the Keeper records. I don't know, I find the title to be really fitting.

Yes, I definitely see what you are saying.  I guess I just like the more heavy serious side the band have been going lately, minus the last album.  If the song is good then it shouldn't matter.

From the little we can hear of the song, it's more of an anthem than anything else. Not cheesy, not dark, just a power metal uplifting tune celebrating the band.

That's how I predict too. Hoping for at least an EP, I have really mixed feelings after My God Given Right and I want more, but better ;)

Not bad, but sounds more like Unisonic to me.  Not much Deris either from what I can hear.

As the other guys said, it's a strong anthem type song will cool relevant lyrics.  Kai surprisingly sings a lot on this, I actually find him the focal pont after first listen.

A really good song! No doubt, I liked it more than what I've heard from Unisonic. Also the quality of the recording and mixing is far better than the last Helloween albuns.

I like it!  Light hearted, fun and not taking themselves too seriously.  Get some "Kill the King" vibes at a few points in the song too, and enjoying how it sounds more like Unisonic than modern Helloween :P  God I want to go see this tour so badly but means travelling to London..

I heard it and I love it! Marcus shines as always with his basslines, I love the  drum sound, reminds me of I Want Out ;) and the vocals of course, great to hear those three together. I like Andis voice, it's more harsh than on the previous records, Kiske is great as usual and that Hansen scream at the end... ;) great track!  :metal

Heard the song too.

It's... awesome. Brilliant. It's everything it needed to be: catchy, old school, anthemic, and full of cheesy references to the older songs. Christmas can't be topped by H(e)lloween this year!!!!  :metal :metal :metal
