HELKER - Firesoul

Diego Valdez and co. are back for their 2nd album in English on May 5. Melodic crunchy power metal with powerful vox.

It just came out today and I am listening now. It does wear out towards the end but several of the songs are excellent. Fight is a skull-crushing piece of pure heavy metal and Empty Room is an emotionally driven ballad that succeeds mightily.

It's solid. Diego is the best Dio clone out there.

Side note; it's probably just me, but I think "Master Of The Moon" is the most underrated Dio album. It's slow, but really good. Goldy's my favorite of Dio's guitar players (solo band only, obviously).

Campbell and Aldrich are better than Goldy IMO, but I love most of his stuff with Dio. I enjoy MotM, but Magica and Killing the Dragon were better.

New Helker is indeed excellent, heavier overall than the previous one. The Neon Knights cover is as close to Dio one can get IMO.
