HELIX The Power Of Rock And Roll Sanctuary (2007)


Formed in the mid 70s, this solid party hard rock band have had a sporadic career - this is their 11th full length studio set. But it's worth the wait.

Solid hard rock with metal nudges, there's an occasional power sound of Triumph, the odd hint of Nugent attitude, but the party edge (think American Dog) makes the music more approachable than either.

'Eat My Dust' has a hint of uptempo Led Zeppelin, while there's a touch of funk in 'My Baby Likes To Ride', showing the influence is very much in the 70s. Equally, the sexual innuendo lives on.

The sleazy edge is nicely rough and very typical of Krokus, blues rather than boogie.

'Boomerang Lover' is more the sleaze that was big in the late 80s with some nice vocal harmonies in the chorus, abeit in their own style.

Not too taxing or grabbing but it's a good and enjoyable set; you can just tell it's good live.
