Legendary German power metal band Helloween have released a new single called “Nabataea.” This is the first single from their upcoming album called Straight Out Of Hell. The song is about a fabled high culture with a recently discovered city called Petra. It is said to be the origin to many myths. The album is due in Europe on January 18 and in North America on January 22, 2013 on The End Records.

A recent press release described Straight Out Of Hell as:
“a work full of speed and toughness, with optimism and great joy of playing, featuring complex arrangements, strong hooks and plenty of catchy melodies. Or, to let the facts speak for themself: 13 mostly fast-paced songs that turn out to be impressively multi-layered and will completely delight all Helloween fans, due to the different songwriters Andi Deris, founding members Michael Weikath and Markus Grosskopf, and guitarist Sascha Gerstner.”
Weikath has also stated:
“‘Straight Out Of Hell’ is the consequent development of the two albums before. ’7 Sinners’ was recorded more or less in the wake of ‘Gambling With The Devil’, while the new songs are a continuation of the ’7 Sinners’ directives, only a little less doom bound and noticeably more positive. These songs will kick even the laziest listener’s ass.”
