Veteran rockers are getting the best of yesterday and today. Today’s scene is full of young talent. And the old guard is still creating killer tunes. Texas metallers Helstar are a great example of the old guard giving the upstarts a run for their moolah. Helstar have a wicked new record on the racks entitled “Clad In Black”. A cool comp. featuring new singles, cover tunes, and a re issue of the killer “Vampiro” album. So it’s a good time to get vox/mainman James Rivers on the horn. We discussed said record, the 80s TX metal scene, and his obvious vampire obsession. In our “News, Views, and Tunes”, we go over Jon Schaffer’s “Do Over” and those very unique Motorhead bullets. Musically, we crank new and used Helstar plus Blaspherian, Agent Steel, Motor Jesus, Bullet Belt, Steel Baring Hand, live Autopsy, new Hell’s Headbanger’s signees Nocturnal Departure and intro Toronto metallers Devilz By Definition in our “Indie Spotlight”. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!
