'Halloween' videoclip

Hit Parader magazine Yearbook 1987:

Helloween also had to make concessions, on their first video - for the song 'Halloween', a 13th-minute extravaganza that takes up most of side two on their latest album. The band was reluctant to compromise their artistic integrity, their label gave them sound advice when they told them it wasn't likely MTV would air a 13-minute clip too often - especially by a little know German metal band. Weikath: "We all reached and agreement. We agreed to use the song Helloween in the video, but to cut it down to a reasonable length. We cut as much out of it as we could without ruining the song, and it the end it toured out fairly well. We will do what it takes to become succesful - soon we'll be able to live out our wildest rock and roll fantasies."


'Kids Of The Century' videoclip

Kiske: "It was done by Storm Ferguson, he is the guy who did the covers for Led Zeppelin. He was doing all the big covers for Paul McCartney and he did the video and part of the cover for the album. He said the eggs over the eyes was some sort of expression in England that said people are blind to some things. I do not really know this expression but he said this would fit the lyrics. I do not like the video too much because its too dark, its a funny video but the live shots were just too dark. I just do not like the lighting on the video."
