Helloween - New Album Details Revealed

The following message was posted on Helloween's official website:

"Gambling With The Devil" out on October 29th, 2007
Limited first edition featuring bonus CD and scratch ticket
Single download from September 28th, 2007

Helloween were busy working on their latest album until the end of August, now the band are ready to release details about "Gambling With The Devil": The regular album consists of eleven songs (plus an intro, spoken by Saxon's Biff Byford) with a total playing time of 57:40 minutes. For their many faithful fans, there will also be a limited first edition (40,000 units in a Digipak with an embossed and stamped slipcase to be released in Europe, and 10,000 units in a jewel case in the US) with a bonus CD featuring two extra tracks, the video supporting the first single 'As Long As I Fall', and a 'making-of' of the video, including interview sequences. As a special highlight, the first edition includes a scratch ticket with an exciting puzzle, as described in detail on the Helloween homepage. The solution to the puzzle allows you to register at www.helloween.org and take part in a draw with a sensational first prize: The lucky winner will receive a trip for two to a Helloween show in America - including flight, accommodation at the band hotel, backstage tickets, and of course a personal meeting with the band! There are also signed Gibson/Epiphone guitars and great fan packs to be won.

This unusual competition is the band's way to thank their fans for the success of their Keeper Of The Seven Keys - The Legacy album and their sensational 2005/2006 world tour.

Helloween are currently on a promotional tour to launch their new album and will soon start preparations for their extensive world tour, which will take them through the whole of Europe, Southeast Asia and the US from November 2007.

A few days ago, the impressive video clip to support Helloween's 'As Long As I Fall' single was shot at Munich's AVA studios (who were also in charge of the 'Light The Universe' video).

Downloads of the audio version of 'As Long As I Fall' (including cover) will be available worldwide for download from September 28th, 2007.

just by reading that my heart beats stronger
wow, this is amazing, thats an album that I WILL GET, maybe I must make the pre-order now!!!, but I suck solving puzzles :-(
Even if I won that (something that is more impossible than met Euronymous) I would have a heart attack and die, and another guy would go

The album is incredibly great, one of the best in a lot of years in my opinion. Perhaps the best since Keepers 1&2 Will certainly buy it when it is released!
