Helix - Bastard of the Blues

Helix is the iconic Canadian rock/metal band, boasting a long list of studio albums starting from their first in 1979. Shows like this excited to shoot, maybe due to the fact still listen to their 1984 album "Walkin' the Razors Edge" on the turntable, and honestly I am surprised I have not worn out the album, as I have worn out turntable needles playing it for sure. Brian Vollmer has been the mainstay of the band for it's 30 years of music history. Vollmer still belts it out with his raspy vocals, and unleashes his energy on the crowd.
