Helloween Self-titled 2021 Album Certified Gold in Czech Republic

June 2021 saw the release of their sensational new studio album Helloween and it was THE metal news of the year! Media and critics were cheering almost breathlessly: “sleight of hand,” “healing” and “a 65-minute celebration.” Finally, the fans were the ones who catapulted the album straight to No. 1 in Germany and Spain, into the top 5 of seven countries and worldwide 15 times into the best 15 of the album charts. Everybody was united in their opinion: these 12 tracks generated their own genre universe and leave all competitors behind, even after 35 years of band history.


HELLOWEEN are now finally touring to present their new songs alongside Swedish templars of steel, HAMMERFALL, around the globe since early May. An extensive journey which saw them also stopping by at Prague’s prestigious O2 Arena where they performed for 14,000 crazy pumpkinheads a few weeks ago – and where they were surprised themselves in the form of receiving gold awards for sales of their recent »Helloween« album in the Czech Republic!
