Robb Chavez of “Robb’s MetalWorks” conducted an interview with Larry Barragan, guitarist and co-founding member of HELSTAR, on March 24 at the 30-year-anniversary show. The chat, which can be seen below, covers a variety of topics, including the significance of the 30-year milestone, that evening’s 20-song set list, the history of Texas metal and Jackson guitars.

HELSTAR released its latest album, “Glory Of Chaos”, in November 2010 via Germany’s AFM Records.

Formed in Houston in the early ’80s, HELSTAR cut its teeth playing backyard parties and small club gigs. It soon became apparent that HELSTAR had much more to offer then its contemporaries. Combat Records snapped up the band and released HELSTAR‘s debut, “Burning Star”, in 1984. Next came “Remnants of War”, followed by HELSTAR‘s breakthrough album, “A Distant Thunder”, in 1988. The success of “A Distant Thunder” ultimately set up HELSTAR‘s most critically acclaimed album, 1989’s “Nosferatu”.
