A CHAT WITH GERMANY'S METAL KINGS, HELLOWEEN!

I'm very happy to present my interview with one of Europe's most successful metal bands, Germany's high-flying HELLOWEEN! These guys have been a major force for 30 years now. I'm honored to head into the "Pumpkin Patch" to talk to guitarist MICHAEL WEIKATH, who has been with the band every step of the way. We have an honest and far ranging conversation about many aspects of the band, including being the only band to play in Borneo, Helloween's dedication to positive lyrics, strange astronomical phenomena and the meaning behind the title of their new record "My God-Given Right". It's not often that Wormwood speaks to metal royalty like this...treat yourself to a slice of "Pumpkin Pie" right HERE!

Several big ideas are percolating in the background for future Wormwood features, but I'm not prepared to divulge them just yet. I can tell you for sure that our big tribute to the late CHRISTOPHER LEE should be up next week, followed by interviews with ARMORED SAINT and OBSEQUIAE as well as a new Wormwood Files about the Burning Man of Brazil! So stay tuned, humanoids!

To keep you happy until then, I present the latest edition of the Torture Chamber, sure to dazzle and disgust in equal measure!
