Killer Bee’s brand new album is called EVOLUTIONARY CHILDREN. The back had their big break through back in the 90′s when they released three albums and gained success with them. After that the band was put on ice for a while and 15 years later, 2011, came the compilation album ALMOST THERE. The first with the new line-up FROM HELL AND BACK came 2012 and now, once more is the band back to attack. I had the pleasure to talk to singer Brian Frank and bass player Anders LA Rönnblom and what they had to say about their long career and the new album amongst other things can be read down below.

BRIAN VOLLMER

INTERVIEW AND LIVE PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Helix are a Canadian hard rock/heavy metal band formed in Ontario in 1974. The band are best known for their early 80’s albums NO REST FOR THE WICKED, WALKIN’ THE RAZOR’S EDGE and LONG WAY TO HEAVEN which was a chart topping album in Sweden in 1985. Their most known lineup was the 80s version of the band: Vollmer on vocals, accompanied by guitarists Brent Doerner and Paul Hackman, bassist Daryl Gray, and drummer Greg “Fritz” Hinz. The history of the band has been marked by many lineup changes, with Vollmer being the sole constant member and only remaining member of the original lineup. Although guitarist Paul Hackman was tragically killed in a tour van accident in 1992, the surviving members of the 80’s lineup reunited in 2009 for the album VAGABOND BONES. The line-up is now completed by young guitarist Kaleb Duck and the band released its latest EP SKIN IN THE GAME in the fall of 2011. In October 2011 Helix finally returned to Finland after a near 26 year absence and played a show at the Legends of Rock festival in Oulu. There we had the honor to sit down with Mr. Vollmer himself and hear some of the latest news as well as some blasts from the past… Read on!

REVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Progressive rock band Saga has awarded with gold and platinum albums and they have sold over eight million albums during their 30 year plus career but they’re still like a “big unknown” in Finland. The band has never performed here before and especially now, with the original lead singer Michael Sadler is back in fold, it was finally time to witness band to perform its debut show in here. It was pleasant to see that although Saga are not as known as their Canadian colleagues Rush they still virtually sold out show in Club Virgin Oil in Helsinki in front  of approximately 500 fans whose long wait was now finally over.
