Helix is a heavy metal band that formed in 1974 for a Battle of the Bands contest in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada and is best known for their 1984 single "Rock You". The original lineup consisted of singer Brian Vollmer, guitarists Brent Doerner and Paul Hackman, bassist Keith Zurbrigg and drummer Brian Doerner. In 1992, Hackman died when the group's van rolled down a 40-foot enbankment after a concert in Vancouver. The band recorded the song "That Day Is Gonna Come", as a tribute to Hackman, and the video for the song featured unique Super 8 and video footage shot by Vollmer on the road over the years.

Helix released two independent albums, entitled Breaking Loose and White Lace & Black Leather in 1979 and 1981 respectively. They then signed to Capitol Records and releasing several Canadian hit albums in the '80s - No Rest For The Wicked, Walkin' The

HELIX Walkin' the Razor's Edge

Album · 1984 · Glam Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
voila_la_scorie
When that video came on one night, with a hirsute chain slaving away in some dusty rocky place and some guy standing up suddenly and shouting, "Gimme an R, O, C, K..." I thought it was both cheese fodder for the anti-metal kids at my school and actually pretty cool sounding. A hard rock cheer. Very laughable if it was taken seriously, but seriously fun if it was taken for how it was intended. Cheer aside, the song was a rockin' heavy tune and the name of the band, Helix, sounded cool too.

I bought the cassette and got to love the band. The second track, "Young and Wreckless" had one of the best and coolest-sounding metal riffs after the solo, and years - no decades later - I always thought to get the CD if for nothing else than to hear that riff again. But it was for one more reason that I finally ordered the CD earlier this year and that was the awesome cover ballad "(Make Me Do) Anything You Want". I remember loving the song at the time and the guitar solo was so pretty. As it happened, I bought the debut album by A Foot in Cold Water, the seventies Canadian hard rock band that recorded the original song, and I felt the Helix cover was done so well that there were no longer any excuses for not ordering "Walkin' the Razor's Edge".

The album is an excellent piece of mid-eighties glam metal / hard rock. For that, however, keep in mind what that means musically and lyrically. This is mostly a party album with fun songs to rock out to. "And you stand accused of having fun. How do you plead?" "Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!" (from "When the Hammer Falls"). Helix also cover the 70's Crazy Elephant song "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'", which now I feel stands apart from their self-penned material in style but still slips neatly into the party hard rock mix of the album. The band do pull off some excellent rockers with some catchy riffs and clever solos. And Brian Vollmer's vocals must certainly be mentioned because he has great control and delivery. The man can sing to this music like he was born for it.

I bought Helix's next two albums and the one before this one and I even had the privilege of meeting vocalist Brain Vollmer when he came to my local record store, promoting "Wild in the Streets" (very nice guy!). But of the four albums, "Walkin' the Razor's Edge" is the only one that impressed me enough to stay in my memory and the only one I ever felt like replacing with a CD. I don't know about what Helix did after or the two albums before. Perhaps there's bound to be some great rocking album worth listening to. I have to admit though that this kind of party rock is usually not my thing. Even now, listening to the whole album while riding a train isn't so inspiring. But perhaps while driving it would better suit the circumstances. Walking home at night with the volume cranked sure helps.

I'm tempted to give it four stars for the type of music that it is. "Rock You" still really captures the mood even though the cheer should sound cheesy. That riff in "Young and Wreckless" is as awesome as ever. The cover ballad is still beautifully done, and some of the rockets like "Animal House" are worthy of cuing up. The rest of the album is better taken at high volume perhaps when behind the steering wheel or when one is in the mood for some good ol' classic eighties hard rock / glam metal.

"Vagabond Bones" is the answer to frontman Brian Vollmer's wake-up call, asking the surviving line-up from "Walkin' The Razor's Edge" era to reunite again. Guitarist Paul Hackman is absent and replaced by Kaleb Duck who assisted the band while on tour. This 12th studio album will make you turn your head and think "is this still 1984?". The classic Helix style was the driving force behind this album, and if you're a huge fan of the band, this is a pleasure treat that worth the long-waiting.

The first three tracks are simply awesome. "The Animal Inside" and "Go Hard or Go Home" are a fiery uptempo hard rock while the title track is an absolute goody smokey rock and roll piece. "Monday Morning Meltdown" is a fun mid-tempo Cheap Trick-meets-Green Day track, "Best Mistake I Never Made" is a wonderful easy listening country/folk influenced track, and "Make 'Em Dance" is a classy party groove. The rest are good, some are decent, but with only 9 tracks, the album felt pretty short and you'll feel the show is over before you reached the climax. For fans of traditional heavy metal/hard rock or Helix hardcore, "Vagabond Bones" is a nice revisit to the old sound. Nothing's really spectacular, nothing's really new, it's just a plain good ol' rock and roll.
