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.

Banshee are a legendary US Power Metal band formed by guitarist Terry Dunn, who remains the main man behind the band to this day. The band was formed in 1986 and only a few months after they released their “Cry In the Night” EP, which was picked up by Metal Blade Records in 1988 for release. They also included the song ‘We Want You’ on the Metal Massacre 9 compilation.

By the end of ’88 the band’s popularity had become such that they gained the attention of Atlantic Records. “Race Against Time” was released on Atlantic Records in 1988. Unfortunately the band was lumped in with the hair metal bands at the time, despite the fact that they had a much tougher, heavy metal sound. It wasn’t until 1992 that we were given new music from the band. They released their independent album “Take ‘Em By Storm”, with the band parting ways shortly after. Continue reading »
