Ex-HELLOWEEN Singer MICHAEL KISKE: 'I Will Only Make Pop Music In The Future!'

Former HELLOWEEN singer Michael Kiske has been composing new material over the course of the last few weeks and has already completed pre-production versions of six new songs, according to his latest newsletter.

Says Michael: "I am very optimistic because I really think that those songs are my best material so far. What I succeeded to do — more or less by accident -— in my earlier career with songs like 'Always', 'Longing' and one or two more I do consciously nowadays..."

Kiske, who has dismissed rumors that he may fill the vacant singer position in STRATOVARIUS following the departure of Timo Kotipelto, claims that he has no intentions of writing in the "rock and heavy metal" genres anymore. "I will only make pop music in the future!" he says.

In other Kiske-related news, the metal opera "AINA - Days Of Rising Doom", for which Michael recorded the vocals for two songs, will be released in Europe on February 26, 2004 through The End Records. The Japanese version of the CD has been available since early November.
