"I LIVE IN AUSTRALIA REMOTE FROM THE REST OF THE WORLD
SO I AM A LITTLE LATE IN THE DISCOVERY OF SUCH A FINE
METAL BAND, HELSTAR. I GOT THE CD TODAY THROUGH OUR GOOD
FRIENDS AT AMAZON[.COM] AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU I HAVE ALREADY
PLAYED IT 4 TIMES, ONE AFTER ANOTHER. NOW I`M AN OLD SCHOOL
IRON MAIDEN , early FATES WARNING FAN, AND I ALSO LIKE MODERN
DREAM THEATER, SHADOW GALLERY, BUT THIS HAS BLOWN ME AWAY
ITS PURE METAL ONLY PROGRESSIVE WHEN ITS NEEDED .
IF YOUR LIKE I WAS , NOT SURE ? DON`T BE. IF YOU THINK YOUR A METAL HEAD, YOUR NOT UNTILL YOU HEAR THIS. YES HELSTAR COULD BE
ONE OF THE MOST UNDERATED BANDS(along with Black jester)
IN METALS HISTORY SO GIVE EM A GO, BUY THEM SECOND HAND IF YOUR
NOT SURE BUT THEY ARE WORTH FULL PRICE."
Helstar : Most Under-rated Heavy Metal Band Ever??

"How I, among countless others, overlooked Helstar back in the late 80's is beyond me. Helstar is awesome old school Heavy Metal. It's fast, very melodic, and at the same time very complex. These guys are all very talented musicians, and deserve to acknowledged. I love this CD, and since I've bought it, I can't get it out of my CD player....I'm a huge Iron Maiden/Fates Warning fan, and have been since the early 80's. Helstar is a great mix of both. If you haven't heard Helstar yet, don't wait another day, but this now!!!!I like "A Distant Thunder" more than "Nosferatu", but these guys are without question, one of the most underrated Heavy Metal bands of their time....4 1/2 STARS....HELSTAR RIPS!!!"

"What can I say, I guess I have to disclaim that I went to high school with these guys. That won't stop me from saying that they are one of the best, hardest rocking, old-school metal bands around. From the pumping drive of 'The King is Dead' to the lyrical genious of 'Abandon Ship' and on to the comical value of 'He's a Woman, She's a Man', this CD will become one of your regular listens. I only wish I could go back to the day and see this band in the small clubs I used to. This CD is a must buy for any serious metal fan."
