3.8 excellentVoivod STAFF | September 24th 16

Ever since Helstar were reactivated, there was a discrete pressure for a return to the stylistic realm of Nosferatu, a criminally misplaced album at release time. Like every band which respects its craft, however, Helstar took their time in indulging their fan base, with the release of their 9th album. Vampiro (caught the innuendo already?), is nothing short of top-shelf, classical-tinged tech power/progressive/thrash metal, coated with the sound quality that Nosferatu should have in the first place. With the possible exception of "To Their Deathbeds They Fell", the remainder of the album is not particularly memorable per each song; however, as a whole, it can be safely played on repeat, just for admiring Helstar's ample song writing ability. Favorite song: To Their Deathbeds They Fell.

4.0 excellentTheNotrap | November 8th 16

A successful sequel to Helstar's magnum opus "Nosferatu".


3.4 greatWillie STAFF | October 4th 16

Their 80s output was bad, and their 90s stuff totally sucked. Surprisingly, though, their 2000s output has been pretty damn good. Another great technical thrash/metal release... as long as you can deal with Halford-ish vocals.
