In 1988, Helstar's release of Distant Thunder saw the band break away from the pure thrash metal genre and expand in a more progressive direction. The blistering dual guitars were relentless, but now the picking became a little more intense and the soloing went into the stratosphere. Titles like The King is Dead and Abandon Ship were merely portents of things to come in 1989. Although A Distant Thunder was well produced, the band wouldn't peak until their next release.
