HELSTAR Signs With AFM RECORDS, Plans 'Best-Of' Release

June 27, 2007

Texas metal legends HELSTAR have signed a deal with AFM Records. The band is currently in the studio re-recording some of its early classics for a "best-of" album, to be released on November 19. The CD will also contain two brand new tracks. An all-new album of original HELSTAR material is tentatively due next summer.

Formed in 1982, HELSTAR achieved legendary status with such albums as "Burning Star" (1984),"Remnants of War" (1986),"A Distant Thunder" (1988) and "Nosferatu" (1989). After the band broke up in the early Nineties, vocalist James Rivera played in a number of groups such as VIGILANTE and NEW EDEN before reuniting with HELSTAR for the "Multiples in Back" CD in 1995. After the LP was issued, the band split up once again. Rivera subsequently released albums with the bands DISTANT THUNDER and KILLING MACHINE before joining VICIOUS RUMORS prior to the the recording of their latest album, "Warball".
