Helix is no stranger to Scandinavia, having had a Number One CD in Sweden in 1983 with Long Way to Heaven.
In 1988 they played Stockholm in support of Ian Gillan of Deep Purple but did not return to Sweden until the mid-90’s, when they played Sweden Rock Festival. However, by that time the only original member left in the band was lead singer Brian Vollmer. This time around the line-up will include original members Greg "Fritz" Hinz (drums) and Daryl Gray (bass). Filling out the lineup with Brian are guitarists Kaleb Duck (who has been with the band for 6 years) and newcomer Chris Julke. Original guitarist Paul Hackman died in a car accident in 1993 while returning from tour, and Brent Doerner retired last year. He is still involved with the band in a video making capacity.
The band’s newest CD "BASTARD OF THE BLUES" was written by Sean Kelly and Brian Vollmer during 2013. Sean Kelly also plays guitar for Nelly Furtado and the newly formed "Four by Fate", who’s members include John Regan (David Bowie/Peter Frampton/Mick Jaggar etc), Stett Howland (formally of WASP/LITA FORD), and Tod Howarth (Ted Nugent/Cheap Trick).
The CD will be released by PERRIS RECORDS from Houston, Texas and will contain 12 studio tracks: Bastard of the Blues, Even Jesus (Wasn’t Loved In His Hometown), Screamin’ At the Moon, Metal at Midnight, Axe to Grind, Angelina, When All The Love Is Gone, Winning is the Best Revenge, Hellbound for a Heartbreak, Skin in the Game, The Bitch is a Bullet, and Sticks & Stones.
