In the meantime everyone is clued in: From October 4th, 2019 we can all revisit the PUMPKINS UNITED WORLD TOUR every night without even leaving the couch. What is served, is no less than the greatest hits from 30 years and a breakneck trip through the entire HELLOWEEN repertoire – a 14 month metal quake, featured on the cover of almost every metal magazine including the world’s biggest metal magazine, Japan´s BURRN!, which dedicated an unbelievable four cover stories to this tour. In other words: Clear the ring for the next round of PUMPKINS UNITED madness!
Today the band presents their first single, as well as the live video for the track "Pumpkins United" Watch the video here: https://youtu.be/Mat2YhaceaA Get the song digitally here: http://nblast.de/HelloweenPumpkinsLive

Every single solo, every spontaneous gesture, and every emotional encore of the PUMPKINS UNITED WORLD TOUR is evoked and made immortal. Band interviews and plenty of background material included. The artworks for the various formats were once again created by photographer and art designer Martin Hausler, who of course stuffed lots of previously unreleased live images into the 36-page booklet and high end packaging.

The band released the music video for the second single, "World War X" which was directed by Scott Ian Lewis. The video was produced by Digital Thunderdome and co-produced by Scott Ian Lewis & Nikhil Potdar.
Scott Ian Lewis comments, "The WWX music video is a special one for so many reasons. For the last 14 years of the band I've been heavily involved in the music videos. Now to be directing the title track for our most important album is something I'm very proud of. CARNIFEX has never been more fierce and I can't wait for everyone to see what we've created."

The video can be seen here: https://youtu.be/QIaTIYG2r-M Original shredder Mike says: "This is a classic thrasher with a lots of tempo changes and an evil middle part! The drums are a really interesting part of the song - Randy kills it. During the solo we have my unrelenting style and Damir’s crazy shredding, which is beyond good and evil! It fits perfectly together – we hope you enjoy the playthrough!” New axeman Damir states: "BETRAYAL is my personal highlight of the new record! I love the rhythmical changes and the variety but the song always stays true to the roots! Of course the solo duel is another climax of this new DESTRUCTION anthem, I love it!"
