Death Metal[edit]

Just if somebody wants to know Helloween was on a split cd with Running Wild (band) and Hellhammer caled Death Metal. So if you want you can put it on their discography and link it to the album page cause I don't care. See ya! Death2 15:21, 16 March 2006 (UTC)

Expanded Edition CDs[edit]

There are Expanded Edition CDs of all Helloween's albums except for Helloween EP and Keeper of the Seven Keys - The Legacy. So far, I have added some information about the Expanded Edition for Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 1 and Keeper of the Seven Keys Part 2. --Bahamut 11:15, 10 April 2006 (UTC)

Covers performed by Helloween[edit]

They did cover Iron Maiden's "Wasted Years" I think. Any more? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 202.1.192.6 (talk) 21:11, 16 January 2007 (UTC).

Fair use rationale for following images:[edit]

I have added the "Rationale for fair use" paragraph and removed appropriate deletion tags at the image pages and this talk page, as it was pretty cumbersome with them. Echad 06:06, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

Melodic Metal[edit]

Helloween refer to themselves as "Melodic Metal".

Taken from the official Helloween website:

Helloween, one of the most eminent melodic metal bands worldwide and - along with the Scorpions and Accept - Germany’s ultimate metal export, got together exactly 25 years ago.

http://www.helloween.org/band.html —Preceding unsigned comment added by Metalosaurus (talkcontribs) 17:51, 6 April 2010 (UTC)

The genre has been around since the 80's. Its the same as progressive metal and symphonic metal. Both are just the metal equivalent of rock genres - progressive rock & symphonic rock. Are you going to tell me they don't exist either? Melodic metal is just the heavy metal equivalent of melodic rock. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Metalosaurus (talkcontribs) 08:20, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

  • And there's no "melodic rock", too. Where do you get your ideas for classification? Garret Beaumain (talk) 19:04, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Not on Wikipedia there isn't but then this site depends on the few individuals who govern and write the article. Try googling or searching melodic rock on site like you tube and tell me there is such a genre. How is that both Hellween and Sonata Arctica give reference to being Melodic on their official websites?

One of the biggest problems today is sites like Encyclopaedia Metallum where it is one or a few individuals that many naive younger fans read and then go and believe and repeat thinking they know it all. It is however the many sources actually from the time that should be the governing truth. Metalosaurus (talk) 08:13, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

You should never say "there is no genre called 'X metal'", because uttering this will immediately spawn such a genre. Its a law of nature or something. --dab (𒁳) 11:06, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

According to their website they play 'German Melodic-Speed-Metal', and really, shouldn't the article reflect the band? 83.137.8.3 (talk) 09:41, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

7 Sinners[edit]

It's time to make a new section for their new album. I'm going to start crafting it. Erikster (talk) 05:13, 23 October 2010 (UTC)

Who is Who :)[edit]

If someone knows the band; could you please check commons:Category:Helloween as I added some pictures but besiedes Andreas Deris I don't know who is who :) - Please add the names to the image description (and if needed of course to the article) ...Sicherlich Post 19:11, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
