Markus Großkopf hasn't changed that much, has he? Smile

Mmh, I didn't see him Undecided Where is he on the video ?

By the way, Markus Grosskopf is one of the best bassists ever. So much creativity in his bass lines, especially during the 1980s (I haven't listened to post-1980s Helloween so far, though, ahah) !

Großkopf is around 0:56 or something. I personally prefer Helloween with Andi Deris on vocals, but that's part his songwriting (Andi writes a majority of the stuff they've been doing since the mid-nineties) and part the fact that I simply prefer his voice to Kiske's, which I find a little boring. Großkopf's bass lines are always great. I love a melodic bassline and he's the king of melodic (and audible) bass lines in power metal.

I still didn't see him Laugh

I will listen to "Deris" Helloween later, as you really seem to like him.

I agree with you about Markus Grosskopf !

I came late to the Helloween party, just getting into them three years ago, so I never had to deal with the Kiske vs Deris stuff. I like both eras and voices, although I will admit to not caring for the last two albums with Kiske. (Although, I don't necessarily blame him for that, as some do.)

I will say that based on live footage I've seen, Deris is a much better front man in concert. While I do love Kiske's voice, he's rather boring onstage. Deris is just fun to watch.

Yeah Kiske is definitely in dour need of charisma. He doesn't seem to be the moest pleasant person to work with either. Of course, none of that matters on the record and I don't really know what it is about Kiske. He obviously has a more than decent range and can carry a tune, but something about him rubs me the wrong way. My favorite Helloween era is easily the one with Deris, Roland Grapow and Uli Kusch, because I consider them to be the best songwriters the band ever had, along Kai Hansen of course. I immensely enjoy recent works like 'Gambling With The Devil' and 'Seven Sinners' as well though.
