"Deep Cuts the Knife" was the lead single off their 1985 album, Long Way to Heaven, and peaked at #20 on the Mainstream Rock charts, while the album did not break the Billboard top 100. The song is a surprisingly strong rock ballad that was combined with a polished video, but somehow it did not really connect with its intended audience. Given the popularity of hard rock during this time, it is surprising that Helix did not enjoy more success, but such are the whims of fate.
Cool trivia fact: Helix opened the tour to support this album in Sweden, where they were the first Canadian band to extensively tour the country.
Helix's "Heavy Metal Love" was posted on ERV in January, 2016.
