James Rivera’s Sabbath Judas Sabbath
James Rivera is a well respected and well known artist in the music business. An international touring and recording artist, James Rivera is possibly best known as the frontman of Helstar (www.helstarmetal.com), a progressive thrash metal band, and he has also headed up Vicious Rumors, Flotsam and Jetsam, and Seven Witches.
'Sabbath Judas Sabbath' was formed in 2002 and has successfully bridged the gaps between James' recording and touring commitments with original acts. With two of his main influences being Black Sabbath (particularly the Dio years) and Judas Priest, Sabbath Judas Sabbath is a fitting tribute to his idols. Since its creation, Sabbath Judas Sabbath has toured the USA, Europe and also played at festivals.
Backed by a strong UK-based band, James Rivera plays his first UK show in August 2013 in the city that spawned Black Sabbath and Judas Priest: Birmingham. Further UK dates for October 2013 are being confirmed.
