Helix released two independent albums, entitled Breaking Loose (Breakin' Loose) and White Lace & Black Leather, in 1979 and 1981 respectively.
They then signed to Capitol Records, and in 1983 released No Rest for the Wicked. This album was virtually a Canadian hit. Then came the 1984 release of Walkin' the Razor's Edge, with the addition of Greg Fritz Hinz and Daryl Gray to the classic 80's lineup, which sold over 100,000 copies in Canada, and over 400,000 internationally. The band's video for the song "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'" caused a bit of a stir several years after it's initial release in 1984, when it was learned that among the cast of porn stars who appear nude in the uncensored version, was (then) 16-year-old Traci Lords.This album was also a major very popular. Then came the 1985 release of Long Way to Heaven.
