The pandemic did a lot of things. It cancelled shows all around the world, it forced postponements of tours. However, there’s always a light at the end of that tunnel. Helloween had to postpone their European section of the United Alive Tour, but they’re about to get a lot more powerful in 2022. More specifically, power metal. Hammerfall is joining Helloween on their United Forces 2022 European Tour. So you’re getting the best of German Power Metal with the best of Swedish Power Metal. Both bands are bringing new albums out with this tour. Andi Deris of Helloween had this to say about the alliance.

We are ‘hammered’ to have our friends from HAMMERFALL with us on tour! Back in 2002 the band produced their album “Crimson Thunder” in my studio in Tenerife and we had a lot of fun back then.
