James Rivera, THE voice of US metal, has been involved in many bands and projects over the years. But his true love always was HELSTAR, the band he fronts since more than 30 years, the band that created a very own, unique sound and that enjoys a magnificent reputation in the worldwide metal scene. After returning from a 11-year break in 2006, the “nucleus” of HELSTAR’s classic line-up reunited and brought back the characteristics of Texas’ finest. An album with re-recorded classics followed and today we look back on two more great studio albums and a Live DVD/CD. 2014 sees Rivera and his band deliver another stunning release, “This Wicked Nest”. It’s a little more melodic compared to its successor “Glory Of Chaos” and reminds of HELSTAR’s 80’s classics, without copying the band’s rich legacy.
