Legendary US thrash metal band Helstar recently played a warm-up date in Tampa, Florida before embarking on the 70000 Tons Of Metal Cruise.  I caught up with lead singer James Rivera and the band backstage about 15 minutes before they went on stage.  The band was pumped and the excitement in the small club was palpable.  The show, which James promised to be a mini-version of the recently released 30 YEARS OF HEL live album lived up to the excitement.  Lots of old metal heads were there. I ran into Mike Browning, former drummer of Morbid Angel and Nocturnus.  He informed me that he would be pulling together some old vets soon to start playing some live shows!

James Rivera’s METAL ASYLUM: Texas Debut February 2012

January 30th, 2012

James Rivera’s METAL ASYLUM — A Tribute To His History & True Metal

Houston, Texas-based national recording artist James Rivera (HELSTAR, MALICE) has formed a new project entitled METAL ASYLUM, which is slated to be launched in February 2012.  The concept of METAL ASYLUM was inspired by two of Rivera’s previous endeavors; the first tribute band the singer ever created entitled “Project Rivera”, which was a tribute to classic 80′s metal, in addition to a more recent specialty show of his known as “James Rivera, A Tribute To His Metal History”.  The front man has recruited several quality local Houston musicians to perform material from his own music career, in addition to fan favorites from the forerunners of classic and true metal.  Audiences can expect to witness Rivera and company’s renditions of the Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Mercyful Fate, Metal Church, plus many others!  Currently three regional Texas shows are scheduled to take place early this year in San Antonio, College Station and Houston.  James Rivera’s METAL ASYLUM promises to deliver a pulse-pounding, headbanging, horns in the air experience for every metalhead!

Helstar – Robert Trevino

July 21st, 2009

142_logo.gif

Interview and pics by Arto Lehtinen

Transcription by David Groves

When Helstar formed in Texas in 1982, no-one knew in advance what kind of adventure this five piece would travel through up to 2009. Helstar have undergone a few line-up changes and even broke-up in the middle of the 90′s. The band released several highly appreciated metal albums in the 80′s which are now hailed as great masterpieces. The Texas metal group has an entire era and great opportunities of playing and touring in Europe. The band’s guitarist Robert Trevino talks about the most recent album THE KING OF HELL, their best of album SINS OF THE PAST, and of course recalls the 80′s heyday as well.

South Texas Rock Fest 2008

July 14th, 2008

STRF.jpg

Written by Robert Williams with photography courtesy of Sandra Torres< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

 

With the recent resurgence in popularity of outdoor summer hard rock festivals such as Rocklahoma and the upcoming Rock On The Bayou fest that harken back to the glory days of the famed 80′s Monsters Of Rock festival, the Lonestar state, not to be outdone by our Okie counterparts, offered up the first annual Nikita Productions Presents: South Texas Rock Fest.

 

Boasting an almost identical roster of artists as the Rocklahoma lineup, such as Queensryche, Skid Row, Faster Pussycat, Dokken, Tesla, and even Texas favorites Helstar, bands ping ponged back and forth over the course of the weekend, shuttling from Texas to Oklahoma and vice versa.

 

Garnering media attention from Sirius Satellite Radio, XM’s Boneyard and sponsorship from Miller Lite beer and Harley Davidson motorcycles, the weekend long festival went off without a hitch. The only real complaint would’ve been the grueling Texas heat. Saturday afternoon there was not a cloud to be found in the summer sky, and it made the "all you can hear buffet of buttrawk" seemingly "Hotter Than Hell" but would you really want to hear Y&T play "Summertime Girls" in the rain?

 

Divided up between two stages and hosted on the Javelina Harley Davidson fairgrounds, vendors served up ice cold Miller Lite products to the estimated capacity crowd of 20,000 strong. Also of note, where as the Rocklahoma crowd could only enjoy 3% beer to their heart’s content, us Texan’s relished in the full strength domestic beer. This was a major concern when choosing which festival to cover. Besides beer, fans could enjoy frozen margaritas’s, fajita’s, burgers, shop for glass blown pipes, rock t-shirts and various other symbolic mementos of a gluttonous good time.

Keep It True X – Germany

May 15th, 2008

KEEP IT TRUE X: 04. – 05.04.2008

Lauda-Königshofen, Germany

Review and Pics by Herr Nabel

If one festival is now known as THE festival of classic heavy metal, it must be Keep It True. The tenth version of KIT was sold out in a few weeks. That should come as no surprise once you see the lineup. Everybody who has been there knows the deal, you never manage  to catch all the bands, to buy all the vinyl, to drink all the beer, and to meet all your friends. But we tried, oh yes we tried I can tell  you…
