Fiercely throwing naked, unflinching aggression into the path of anyone who chooses to listen, UK noise makers HELPLESS will release their fetid, unnerving debut album Debt on September 8 via Holy Roar Records.
Watch their album teaser here:
Debt, a 10 song excursion in dissonance, does everything it needs to in the time it takes most bands to open up. This is no drawn out prog opus; instead, a supremely dark, engagingly short, sharp, shock to the system. If further musical pointers are needed then perhaps the menace of early Gaza and the turn-on-a-dime musical dexterity of Breather Resist often combined with grindcore would be a good place to start.
2) Out Of Commission
3) Grief Vultures
4) Moral Bankruptcy
6) Weightless Prayers
7) Ceremony Of Innocence
9) Manufactured Consent
10) Denied Sale
Having previously delivered on their promising self titled EP, HELPLESS have returned with a savagely blunt album that not only increases their sonic intensity tenfold, but expands their palate from a chaotic hardcore base into grindcore, noise rock and even figurative elements of death and black metal. This is not for the faint of heart.
Catch the band on the following dates:
June 29th. Holy Roar Beer Launch Show @ Crofters Rights, Bristol
September 16th. Morvah, Cornwall.
November 11th. Sonance @ Cube Microplex, Bristol
