Helloween – “Pink Bubbles Go Ape” / “Chameleon” / “Better Than Raw”Nov 25th, 2016
Helloween are a pioneering force in the power metal genre and are considered the founders of German melodic speed metal. Since the band was founded in 1984, Helloween have released fifteen studio albums, three live albums, three EPs, and twenty-seven singles, and have sold more than eight million records worldwide.
Pink Bubbles Go Ape is the band’s 4th studio album, released in 1991. It reached top 50 in the UK, Austrian, Japanese, and German album charts, and reached top 20 in the Swedish, Norwegian and Swiss albums chart.
Chameleon is the band’s 5th studio album, released in 1993. It was the band’s last album for EMI and also last to feature vocalist Micahel Kiske, where the band explored wider musical avenues like adding synthesizers, horns, acoustic guitars, and violin to their tracks. It is considered their most musically adventurous release.
Better Than Raw is the band’s 8th studio album and was originally produced and mixed by Tommy Hansen at the Chateau du Pape and Crazy Cat Studios in 1998. This classic album has never been officially released on vinyl until now.
All albums has been re-mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high quality heavy-weight vinyl and the artwork has faithfully replicated the original release.
