Helix drummer Greg “Fritz” Hinz will remain hospitalized “for at least a couple of weeks” after fracturing his skull in a fall from the roof of his house.

According to Helix singer Brian VollmerFritz sustained his injuries after going out to the front of his home to fix some shingles on the roof. When his girlfriend’s sister went out to check on him, he was laying on the front lawn, having fallen from the roof. He had a seizure on the front lawn and then another on the way to the hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. They immediately put him in a drug-induced coma with breathing tubes down his throat.

Earlier this week, Vollmer posted the following update on Hinz‘s condition: “Thank you to everyone who have sent their well wishes and prayers for Fritz. I’ve been in constant communication with [his girlfriend] Tracey and she’s given me the go-ahead to post the latest news on how he’s doing. Continue reading »

Getting an early start on the holiday season, legendary metal band Helix have released a compilation of all their Christmas classics along with two previously unreleased tracks as part of limited edition package.

At this point in time, to say that the Canadian metal band Helix has been around a while is a bit of an understatement as the band was formed around 44 years ago.  Sure lineups have changed etc, over that time but the current lineup has been around for a while as well.  The band is best known for their 1984 song “Rock You”.  As one might expect the band has toured with other legends in the metal scene including, Kiss, Aerosmith, Rush, Mötley Crüe, Alice Cooper, Whitesnake, Night Ranger, Heart, Quiet Riot, W.A.S.P., Ian Gillan and Motörhead among others.

Over the years the band had recorded and released a number of Christmas tracks including the album A Heavy Mental Christmas in 2008 which features many of the songs on this album and was at least released in Walmart stores in Canada.  This album features those tracks along with two previously unreleased tracks, which are are a brand new recording of the classic Christmas tune “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer and the track “All I Want For Christmas (Is The Leafs To Win The Cup)”, which was previously released as a limited edition 7” only prior which is now out of print.
