Logo #217: Helloween
Designers: Helloween & Uwe Karczewski in 1985. The groundbreaking (well, if one wants to go to Hell one must take the first step) power metal band from Germany has been around for almost 25 years at this point. It was not without cost: Helloween's drummer Ingo Schwichtenberg (May 18, 1965 - March 8, 1995) jumped in front of a train after depression, drugs and getting dumped from the band became too much. Does the pumpkin have a name? Unresolved. "Ingo" has a nice ring to it, though. Here's Helloween with their fairly appropriate hit, "I Want Out."
