HELSTAR Bassist's Health Issues

Texas metal veterans HELSTAR have issued the following update:

"This past week our bassist, Jerry Abarca, had biopsies done for his ongoing stomach illness, which first occurred during the December 2010 HELSTAR European tour. At this time the doctors have ordered more testing for Jerry, as his recent results have yielded cause for concern. Please keep Jerry in your thoughts and prayers. We appreciate the love and support of our fans."

HELSTAR released its new 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".
