Helicon Zero Fucks
Helicon Zero Fucks 10″ released on Fuzz Club Records on 1/11/2019. Helicon is dark heavy psychrock with experimental sounds. Helicon takes the listener straight into the fractalized heavens with the fuzz gods. Their hoods cover their face as the mighty distortion expands with dark angels, flowers, and psychedelic plants bursting from its edges. Like vines up a tree the tentacles slowly and mercilessly climb upward destine to reach the light which is sensed above.
This is Helicon’s 4th release and 3rd EP. They give no fucks and kick the album off with a noisy in your face song “Phil Mitchell’d”. This track has distorted bass, effect-laden guitars, and continuous synth noise. The dark mood fills both sides of the album with dramatic effect.
The last song, “I Hate Everyone But I Quite Like You” is the least agressive track on the album opening with a melancholy progression and slowly ramping up. The sitar comes in with the synth increasing intensity for a world fusion psychedelic explosion sweeping away the heavy dark mood seen earlier in the album.
