HELLOWEEN Reveal 'Pumpkins United' Single & Lyric Video; 10" Pre-order Live!







Earlier this year German Power Metal legends HELLOWEEN announced that they would be reuniting with former members Kai Hansen (guitar) and Michael Kiske (vocals) for a World Tour under the banner of “Pumpkins United”. It would mean bringing together the classic line-up of the band that recorded the seminal ‘Keeper Of The Seven Keys Parts 1 & 2’ albums (1987/88).

HELLOWEEN’s upcoming Pumpkins United World Tour will be nothing short of incredible. The super-tour, with plenty of dates being sold out for a while now, will be witnessed by more than 10,000 fans in Mexico City, 16,000 Brazilians rocking out in São Paulo, 9,000 fans in Santiago de Chile while in Stuttgart there'll be 6,000. In Milan, 8,000 Pumpkinheads eagerly await the arrival of the tour and finally – the ultimate mayhem in Prague with 12,000 tickets sold as well as in Madrid where, believe it or not, 14,000 Spanish Pumpkinheads will gather for this special show.

The news doesn’t stop there. The band, whilst busy in their rehearsal room have also written and recorded an exclusive song together. The aptly titled track 'Pumpkins United' blends everything that has made this band world-famous and a true trailblazer of an own sub genre: power guitar riffs, three-part guitar solos, double bass thunderstorms, and melodic choruses soaring above all else. The track is also performed by all three singers of the band's history - a dream hardly anyone thought would come true and as a thank you to all fans for a quarter of a century of HELLOWEEN mania and decades of loyalty, 'Pumpkins United' will be available via helloween.org from October 13 as a FREE DOWNLOAD!

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…
