Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Helix‘s concert at the Rose Theatre Brampton in Brampton, Ontario, Canada back in October 2017:
“This was the third time that I was seeing the current Helix line-up live and which consists of long-time frontman Brian Vollmer, classic line-up members Greg ‘Fritz’ Hinz (drums) and Daryl Gray (bass), and guitarists Kaleb Duck and Chris Julke, and honestly, they always put on a great show (check out my concert reviews in April 2015 and November 2015). What was apparent once again is the chemistry between the band members as you could see how they seemingly enjoyed playing with each other. Given that the stage was so big and the “monitors” placed back quite far onto the stage, Vollmer often walked up in front of the monitors to take center stage and get closer to the audience. Vollmer was not the only one as sometimes Gray, Julke and Duck would all join him and often one of them would come up to get closer to the audience before retreating behind the “monitors” so they could sing their background vocals in their microphones nestled on their stands.
Once again, Helix showed that they have a rich history of great songs as they obviously played many songs from their likely highest selling albums — No Rest For The Wicked (1983), Walkin’ The Razor’s Edge (1984) and Long Way To Heaven(1985) — but also threw in a new song (“The Devil Is Having A Party Tonight”) and another fairly new one — “Even Jesus (Wasn’t Loved In His Hometown)” from the 2014 album Bastard Of The Blues).”
