Andi Deris is a name that stands by itself. Being the lead singer of one of the greatest and most popular heavy metal bands worldwide, Helloween, there is not much too add when it comes to Andi Deris’ musical achievements.
Now, Andi Deris returns with his first solo album since 1999. Not so much a solo effort in its original sense but recorded in a band envoirement to achieve a real band feeling. “Million Dollar Haircuts On Ten Cent Heads” will be released on November 22nd, 2013 via earMUSIC.

Written and composed by Andi Deris himself, “Million Dollar Haircuts On Ten Cent Heads” has a crispy, modern sound to it. The diverse, high class production is snotty, dirty and brutally honest. A healthy mixture of the recent sounding Helloween records combined with “Master Of The Rings” tradition (Andi´s first Helloween fronted album) and it features some extra ordinary Hendrix-like guitar sounds.

Recorded together with his band “Bad Bankers”, Andi Deris criticises the grievances of the economic system and its corruption. Although the topic may seem a bit dull, the heavy guitar riffs and Andi Deris’ recognizable voice clearly make a point: “fuck banks, fuck managers, fuck bankers”. Explains Andi Deris: “Obviously we despise everything around banks, managers and bankers who are clearly responsible for the shit that goes on nowadays (and most certainly in our future), so it felt very good to vocally tell them what we think about them. Sure, therefore it´s highly explicit but hey… who gives a f***. That’s what they deserve... and it helps the music to really kick some ass.” Who would have thought that a bank crisis could result in something lik this?

I love the Deris-era Helloween albums but I have a feeling this is going to be shit. See: Steve Harris's solo album.

The riff he used in that song is the same chord progression from that random clean guitar part in Mrs. God (or at least it sounded like it), which is already a fairly popular chord progression in more mainstream music.

Late to this fucking party aren't I? I knew this record would be good but I've had enough time now (15 months, wow that was fast!) to let it digest and I've found some standouts. His earlier solo albums were great, Come In From The Rain much better though and I have to say ^ this release blows Harris' record out of the water.

I realize this has probably been all but forgotten about in the musical landscape but I have to speak up because there isn't a bigger advocate of this guy than me. The videos below are the gems of the album, it's almost like the guy didn't miss a beat from the last album he made. I can't explain what a lot of his songs make me feel like, but it's got that right blend of melodic feel-good epic but not overblown Helloween sound combined with that Deris touch of sadness that makes you appreciate the day. Perfect for a rainy afternoon as you stare out the window.
