Texas based legends HELSTAR started their Heavy Metal crusade in 1982, and by the end of the ‘80s builded a position of one of the most important American bands of the genre. Their first two albums, “Burning Star” from 1984 and “Remnants Of War” from 1986, were released by the legendary Combat Records label, and the next two, “A Distant Thunder” (1988) and “Nosferatu” (1989) by – no less legendary – Metal Blade. The ‘90s weren’t easiest times for Classic Metal: HELSTAR did an album entitled “Multiples Of Black” in 1995, then regrouped, and returned with new force in the new millenium. While due to high demand their classic albums were reissued multiple times in all possible formats and variations, the band channeled their energy into new music, released 5 new studio albums between 2007 and 2016, and toured extensively around each one of them in Europe, and in North and South Americas, what established their position even more. Still fronted by the charismatic vocalist James Rivera (who also worked with such legendary acts as VICIOUS RUMORS, AGENT STEEL and FLOTSAM AND JETSAM), the band is here to stay, and deadly serious in what they do: new studio album is currently in the works, and has been scheduled for the release in 2023.
