If you like Helstar, you should also check out: Defiance, Forbidden, Watchtower
If I had to compare Helstar to other bands, I think they'd fit firmly in between Forbidden and Watchtower. Definitely a lot of similarity to the Bay Area Thrash scene of the late 80s, but with more technicality than most in the genre (although not up to Watcthower's level of insanity).
The reformed in the 2000s, but have yet to record anything new.
