HELIX – Canadian Hard Rock & Heavy Metal Legends Are: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

HELIX – It was sometime back around 1983, when I first heard the legendary HELIX on FM radio. I can’t remember which Hartford, Connecticut station that broadcasted (the very cool) show: Metal Shop. This was a pump-you-up block of time devoted to Heavy Metal and back in ’83 it was one of the best gigs in town. I was born and raised in a remote section of Connecticut,  therefore, getting my kicks from Metal Shop (back then) was a natural high that money couldn’t buy.

The first two HELIX songs that I heard on Metal Shop were: Heavy Metal Love and White Lace And Black Leather. Whoa! I knew instantly, upon getting psyched-out-of-my-mind by these two HELIX songs, that a trip to Strawberries Records & Tapes was mandatory. I had to pick up some HELIX. On vinyl. Old School, baby. Back in the day, I rung that HELIX bell and told all that bubble gum shit: go to hell!

My very first HELIX album:

HELIX – NO REST FOR THE WICKED (1983)

It’s now decades later and Strawberries Records & Tapes no longer exists and HELIX does. Thank God. I escaped the extremely expensive Connecticut and now live in Ohio, via Allentown, Pennsylvania. I’m still a Helixaholic and on this Wednesday, May 8th, 2013, I shall declare:

HELIX IS STONE’S METAL PICK OF THE DAY!

METAL BE THY NAME!

  1. No Rest For The Wicked was my first Helix album too.
    They had an album with that title before Ozzy did.

    Speaking of Ozzy (a bit off-topic … sorry), I’m going to OzzFest Japan this Sunday!!

    • You’re very correct about that ‘No Rest For The Wicked’ title factoid! \m/

      Yeah, this is THE album that truly launched HELIX into the Heavy Metal spotlight… back then. \m/

      YOU LUCKY! Have a Metal blast at OzzFest Japan! I can’t wait to read what you write about it! Tokyo 5 ROCKS! \m/
