Helloween is a German power metal band from Hamburg, Germany formed in 1984. The bands original line up consisted of vocalist and guitarist Kai Hansen, guitarist Michael Weikath, bassist Markus Grosskopf and percussionist Ingo Schwichtenberg. The year the band formed, they signed to Noise Records and recorded two songs for a Noise Records compilation album titled Death Metal. Helloween recorded and released their first EP in 1985, which was compiled of five tracks. Also that year, the band released their first full length album titled Walls of Jericho, from which they began touring across Europe.
Following the release of their first album, the band went through some roster changes and quickly began recording a second LP, which was released in 1987. In 1988, the band released a follow up album to the second LP, and one song gained some major attention through MTV. After gaining some recognition from fans in the US, the band landed a performing spot in the Headbangers Ball tour, performing with such bands as Exodus and Anthrax. Soon after, the band began to gain worldwide success. In total, Helloween has released fourteen albums between 1985 and 2013, meanwhile going through several line-up changes.
