Has the forum completely died?

Since the announcemenet of the Pumpkins United World Tour there have been no news and no activity on the funclub facebook, on here and on the Kiskelized facebook page aswell! Kiske was featured on Hansen & Friends and Unisonic released Live In Wacken both of which went almost unotised!

We are almost 1 month away form the start of the Helloween reunion tour, shouldn't there be an interview with Kiske by the funclub?

So is there anybody out there? Is everything alright with Nightangel?

Hi and sorry to everyone, but I faced some medical and personal problems, so couldn't do much for quite some time. I'm still not 100% ok, but I will do my best. I started with a new theme for the Kiske Fanclub page. I will mainly update this page now, since Unisonic will do a break. Don't worry, the fanclub is not dead and I will do my best with new updates. Dio and Steph will help too. :)

And the best is I will report from the tour start in Latin/South America. I will also try to do a little interview or tour impression if they have time.

Again a big sorry for the lack of work from me, but I just couldn't do it. :cry:

I'm glad to hear from you again and sorry to read about the medical issues. No problem I just got a little worried.

The thing is that many people got worried that Unisonic would break up after the announcement of the Helloween reunion tour. Then Kosta quit the band and there were generally no news.

I wish you all the best and I'm sure you will have a great time during the upcoming shows :thumbup: ;) ;

I will do my best to get a little interview or a tour impression, but please don't expect too much, I'm not running a Helloween fanclub, so I cannot guarantee that it works and that they have much time for it.

Hi, I'm new here! Can you believe that I only discovered Michael Kiske 3 months ago? And thanks to the Place Vendome album! I really love it, the more I listen to it, the more I like it. Have you seen that this blog says it's the #1 Hard Rock album of the year?

Well deserved! And "Strong" the best ballad! :)

Hello and welcome to the forum. Yes the new Place Vendome is great, although at first I didn't really enjoy the whole album. Have you listened to the other 3 Place Vendome albums?

In case you were not aware Kiske is also the lead vocalist in "Unisonic", which are similar to Place Vendome but a little heavier and more guitar oriented.

Here are a couple of Unisonic songs so that you can get an idea:

Exceptional (live) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBUdDNfKBVo
My Sanctuary - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=puA_R5pi2ME
When the Deed is Done - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G39_pAPVAgI
We Rise - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyq17J7Mkio

Nowadays the forum is a littlle dead as Kiske is in the middle of the Pumpkins United World Tour with Helloween. If you need more info about Kiske ask, as there are many interesting projects and guest appearances he has done over the years.

Thank you, antere! Yes, I've already heard all the Place Vendome albums, my favorite track is "My Guardian Angel" and my favorite album the new one.
Thanks for the links, Unisonic sounds good to me, how many albums do they have?
I also like Helloween now. I've listened Keeper of the Seven Keys I and II. And the Pumpkins United tour is awesome!
Please, tell me more about his other projects. And what are your favorite songs?

You are welcome.

Since "My Guardian Angel" is your favorite PV song, here is a bonus acoustic version of it:
My Guardian Angel (acoustic version) (bonus track) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p62syh7PnAc

Also this is the exclusive bonus track from the first PV album, that you might have not heard:
Place Vendome - Photograph (bonus track) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svk1skgr-Bo

Unisonic have released 2 studio albums and 1 live album (& 2 EP's with exclusive songs). My favorite album by them is "Light Of Dawn" (2014). My favorite tracks by them are:

Your Time Has Come - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXcNlsF9vt4
Night Of The Long Knives - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYYscDjfMkk
King For A Day - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0z0PBHTf14
Over The Rainbow (bonus track) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wygFMyhf9aI

Helloween albums "Chameleon" (1993) and "Pink Bubbles Go Ape" (1991) are closer to the sound of Place Vendome, but the 2 Keeper Of The Seven Keys albums are the best! Songs to check out from Chameleon and Pink Bubbles Go Ape:

Giants - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-SC4TjmnEg
I Believe - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YDDdLkFtg0
Longing - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nII5vclnawM
The Chance - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqdxPxsNUdo
Someone's Crying - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLeED8lYaFw
Kids Of The Century - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEzLn4l-q80

Another interesting project is Kiske/Somerville, which is a duet project with a female singer. The sound is again similar to Place Vendome. They have released 2 albums. Favorite songs:

Arise - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUiQPIm8Iik
Silence - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cdr3vU-qZRU
Breaking Neptune - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wa7XaIiRpZY
Walk On Water - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zOl3kg2lAE

Kiske has done many Guest Appearances in albums of other musicians, bands and projects. In some he sings full songs and in others he sings duets together with other singers. His most frequent performances are with the Rock/Metal Opera project Avantasia, were he is featured on all 7 albums and with whom he has also done 3 world tours. Here are some of my favorites songs from guest appearances:

Timo Tolkki's Avalon - The Land of New Hope - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xXeaem2tm4
Avantasia - Ghostlights - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GH3kyXAEJHo
Revolution Renaissance - Revolution Renaissance - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMmXtyo1jrQ

Tomorrow's Outlook - The Ethereal Dream (Reprise) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZiChXGL3mU
Tribuzy - Absolution - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yI8XJGLjmxw
Avantasia - Where Clock Hands Freeze - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJWAbdfDKqc
Timo Tolkki - Key to the Universe - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNn82xpCFMw
Avantasia - Lost In Space (Extended Version) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzM5BSmKGqI
Indigo Dying - Breathe In Water - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dn0kVA53EBM

Kiske has also released 5 Solo albums which vary musically and are different from anything else he has recorded. Some are acoustic, others singer/songwriter, symphonic, soft rock...His last solo album, "Past In Different Ways" (2008), includes acoustic re-recordings of Helloween songs written by him and it is really great. My favorite songs:

We Got The Right - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nK3y_P7SwxA
I Believe - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ow4QA1YBXKM
A Little Time - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zLQbGBOKTs
Your Turn - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyyrPZDOPNw
How The Web Was Woven (Elvis cover) (bonus track) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OjzKitU9YN4

Some nice songs from his other Solo albums are:

The Calling - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4itd9WxcGw
Always - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMu_uTEG65Q
