The band has it's roots in 1978, under the name Gentry, by Kai Hansen and Piet Sielck. Sometime later, they were joined by bassist Markus Grosskopf and drummer Ingo Schiwchtenberg, and changed the name again, this time to Second Hell. There was another change in the name (Iron Fist) before the definitive took of the name Helloween. From this point, Sielck left the band. Michael Weikath, who was playing in the band Powerfool, joined them after the disbandment of his band. And so, the first line-up (and official birth) of Helloween was formed, in 1984.

1999 saw the band celebrating fifteen years of music, thus it was a perfect occasion to release something. This something was a CoverAlbum called ''Metal Jukebox'', containing metalized covers from numbers such as {{ABBA}}, JethroTull, DavidBowie.

* LyricalDissonance: "Star Invasion". It sounds between [[DavidBowie Space Oddity]] and the most solemn metal epic. Until the bitter end and beyond.

Sascha Gerstner from FreedomCall replaced Grapow, but the band struggled with the position of drummer. The first drummer hired was Mark Cross from Metalium, who abandoned the band after some medical issues. Finally, Stefan Schwarzmann (formerly from Music/{{Accept}}, and Music/RunningWild, among [[HeyItsThatGuy plenty of other bands]]) took the role, although he wasn't hired in time for the recording sessions of ''Rabbit Don't Come Easy'', the follow-up to ''Dark'', where the drums were played by [[Music/{{Motorhead}} Mikkey Dee]].

Helloween is a German power/speed metal band. Alongside Switzerland's CelticFrost and Sweden's {{Bathory}}, Germany's Helloween were possibly the most influential heavy metal band to come out of Europe during the 1980s. By taking the hard riffing and minor key melodies handed down from metal masters like Music/JudasPriest and Music/IronMaiden, then infusing them with the speed and energy introduced by the burgeoning thrash metal movement, Helloween crystallized the sonic ingredients of what is now known as PowerMetal.
