List of Helloween's Tribute / Cover Song by Other Band

With all the glory in power metal realm, a large portion of it can be credited to Helloween. Their trilogy, Jericho and the Keepers, are the albums that every power metal grow up with. It is understandable then, that almost all tracks from these album is a familiar piece to younger generation musician. Helloween songs are a canonical piece that every player need to learn and play. The creation of tribute album shouldn’t be difficult for us to find. Every now and then a Helloween cover song also inserted into many notable power metal album. The latest is in Rhapsody of Fire Luca Turilli camp, which cover March of Time in their most symphonic style.

At least there are three album that officially done this in a package. Keepers of Jericho part 1 and 2 is a year 2000s project done by many bands that are still in their sophomore year at that time, that turns out successful in our days. Sonata Arctica, Dark Moor, Vision Divine, Rhapsody (of Fire), Steel Attack, Axenstar etc all are faithfully done a notes by notes cover of Helloween. If you like something more improvised, listen to Heaven’s Gate cover of A Little Time.

Then, on the early 2010s, we got HelloRay, A Tribute to Helloween and Gamma Ray album.
Speaking of Gamma Ray, it is understandable they cover a lot of Kai Hansen own stuff. I Want Out and Victim of Fate from their live album Skeletons in the Closet and a few Future World in other live album. Then Roland Grapow and Michael Kiske also notable do their Helloween year material as well. The most official release, is from Helloween himself with UnArmed, a complete re-arrange of their material, and a spin off Michael Kiske's A Past in Different Ways, which is an acoustic version of his Helloween songs.
