Helloween - Better Than Raw
Germany’s 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. The band are still touring and recording, and are currently on tour in Japan.
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. This double-vinyl gatefold album has been re-mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high quality heavy-weight vinyl and the artwork was reworked to maintain the look of the original CD release.
The band has been involved in putting together and approving the release. Reviews of this title will be actively solicited from all relevant specialist and mainstream media. It will also be promoted via the Noise website and facebook pages.
