Helloween Heat Things Up in New York City With Help From Cold Steel

It’s no surprise that the title of Helloween’s new album is ‘Straight Out of Hell,’ especially judging from the band’s show at New York’s Stage 48 earlier this week (Sept. 24) along with Cold Steel.

The metal barricade was no match for zealous fans. With every song, Helloween diehards became more and more vigorous. As the barricade tipped forward, crowd surfers raged and the fans lost their minds to legendary power metal anthems ‘Eagle Fly Free,’ ‘Dr. Stein’ ‘Future World.’ The set ended with their 1988 single ‘I Want Out’ off of Keeper of the Seven Keys Pt. 2.’

Frontman Andi Deris belted out songs and reached notes that many wouldn’t even attempt to attain. Notable members Michael Weikath and Sascha Gerstner provided blistering riffs while long time bassist Markus GrossKopf left ear drums sore with his deep bass lines. Drummer Daniel Loble amazed the crowd with a thunderous and relentless drum solo.

Fans were also treated to newer tracks ‘Nabataea,’ ‘Hold Me,’ ‘Live Now!’ and the title song ‘Straight Out of Hell.’ With well over 25 years of music the German power metal icons Helloween continue to take their fans on one hell of a ride with their persistent work ethic and astounding live performance.

Soaring support came from New York thrash metal natives Cold Steel. Not only is this group incredibly talented but they’re a whole lot of fun to watch onstage. The songs are heavy and the hilarious and random faces of frontman Troy Norr definitely got the attention of the hometown crowd.
