1985. Walls Of Jericho

the band released its first full-length album, Walls of Jericho. During the following concert tour, Hansen had difficulties singing and playing the guitar at the same time. Kai’s last recording as the band’s lead singer was in 1986 on a vinyl EP titled Judas, which contained the song “Judas” and live versions of “Ride the Sky” and “Guardians” recorded at Gelsenkirchen. (The CD edition has the live introduction, but the songs have been replaced with studio versions and crowd noise spliced in.) Following these releases, Helloween began the search for a new vocalist.
