The 2019 Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

It's that time of the year again: The annual Heavy Harmonies donation drive to cover the site expenses for the year. It will run through April 30, details over on the Heavy Harmonies Forum.

Every donation helps, no matter how small. If you can't afford $20 for the year, give $10. If you can't afford $10, give $5. It's just once a year and keeps the lights on.

And if you happen to be fortunate enough to make 6 figures or more a year, feel free to give gobs of cash!... I'm not too proud to have a sugar daddy or seven :)

Thank you for supporting Heavy Harmonies!

I think this might be the best Helix album since 'Long Way to Heaven' (1985). As many know Helix is a second-tier band that has has a history of having a couple good songs per album, as the only disc I own by them is 'Over 60 Minutes With' (1989) which covers their best territory. The songs on 'Bastard of the Blues' compared to their last decade are bigger sounding (beefier production),harmonies galore, with lyrics that are concise and catchy( exhibit A:'Metal at Midnight'). 'Even Jesus (Wasn't Loved in His Hometown)' describes how the band didn't get much attention in their local Ontario,Canada and had to hit the road. When the band was first signed to Capitol Records they where originally rejected by them 3 times, before releasing their debut 'No Rest for the Wicked'(1983). Brian Vollmer is no spring chicken as the band has been kicking around for 40 years. With age he's lost a bit of range as expected, but the first 3 tracks are strong on 'Bastard', with filler at a minimum.

$$ixx - are you the bastard love child on a budget of Gene $immons and Nikki Sixx? 'I don't agree with wise ass Metallian stallion at all' Your review of this album totally agrees with my assessment? (Wise with a great Ass by the way). Go to Over 60 minutes Best of album and half of those songs are 'average' filler.Example: Animal House,Everybody Pays the Price,Dirty Dog, White Lace and Black Leather (need I go on?)

Another good album by Helix. This is just good, staright ahead, fun, party time rock n roll. If you have heard and enjoyed Helix's latest albums then you will enjoy this one. Good stuff!

From: Stixx Date: April 12, 2015 at 12:23
Yes, this is a good album again by Helix. Around 60 yrs old, but still kickin' ass, very cool live act too. Three very good studio CDs in a row now, just like Scorpions

From: aTomiK Date: July 22, 2015 at 5:38
Oh man, this album puts a big smile on your face. Professional musicanship, good production and catchy tunes. I had 5 Helix cds (83-90) before this one and just wanted to hear if the band is still good enough. Well, it is. Now i have some work to do and will get The Power of Rock and Roll and Vagabond Bones next.

From: MelodicRocker Date: November 16, 2015 at 5:39
I thought Helix didn't have it in them anymore, but since The Power of Rock and Roll they are back on top again, most killers no fillers really (if you're a Helix fan like me)! aTomiK, good move, you'll be happy with The Power of Rock and Roll and especially Vagabond Bones!
