Helloween is the debut EP by German heavy metal band Helloween. It was released in March 1985 on Noise Records.


Although it is a speed metal rather than a power metal album, the record is significant as the first effort by the group that would redefine the power metal genre.[3] Helloween was followed up later that same year by the band's first full-length album, Walls of Jericho.[4]
