Helloween recently entered Andi Deris' Mi Sueno Studios on Tenerife to start working on the yet untitled 13th full length studio album. The band wrote more than 20 songs and is currently selecting the best ideas with long time producer Charlie Bauerfeind.

Bass player Markus Grosskopf comments the direction of the album as follows: "For all those out there who found our special best-of Unarmed to be too smooth and calm, I have a great news: The new album will hit you right in the face! It´s gonna be very heavy and contain all Helloween trademarks! Some songs are very powerful and hymnic, others contain the fastest bass drum patterns our drummer Dani ever played, and this means a lot! I am really excited about the material we brought together and can´t wait to put my bass tracks on those kick ass metal songs!"

A short movie from the studio can be watched here. The release of the album is scheduled for Halloween, October 31st, followed by a world tour starting in Europe the end of the year.

Interesting. Those little clips did sound a little hard for Helloween... we'll see how it turns out.

This album will change image of helloween because of The Unarmed Album

Not that they have disappointed me or something, but I kinda hope for something in the vein of the third Keeper - my absolute favourite from the Andi Deris era...

Cool!!! It looks like they are going to keep evolving their sound... not like Gamma Ray

On an interview with more-metal, Andi Deris said that Kai Hansen is invited to play solo for the new album

I didnt know that tuning your guitar lower and lower with each album and making it faster and heavier meant evolving?!

Gamma Ray sound different from Heading For Tomorrow to Somewhere Out In Space to No World order to To The Metal

I really don't like some of those riffs I was hearing on that video, next they will be replacing Deris with a metalcore singer

Well, I don't see anything wrong with fast songs and low tunings, if that's the new direction for the band I'll be happy

Helloween is awesome...what a great bunch of people, eh? And yeah, that for sure sounded nice and heavy...damn, I cannot wait for this one...they have high hopes for it...all I needed to hear was that its going to better than some of their last material...
Roro - 17.05.2010 at 23:57  
Ok i'll wait for that
Novas - 18.05.2010 at 04:27  
Im looking forward to this one..."Gambling With the Devil" was great & its my favorite from Helloween, cept the production was a downfall on it...nevr liked Kiske's vocals, too high pitched...Andi Deris has that dark "halloween" atmosphere for this band...its y i didnt get into "Keeper's I & II"

I've always liked the faster Helloween songs.

Remember what happened the last time they brought out a louder album, The Dark Ride, they sacked half the band.
