Listen to another new Helms Alee song off their album Stillicide out
September 2nd on Sargent House

There’s the matter of how heavy the riffs are, and of how heavily the atmosphere sits atop them, and that’s without even getting into the vocals, a triple—triple!—harmonic assault punctuated by well-placed roars.” – Noisey

“…this music could be used to reanimate the dead, that’s how much electric energy flows through it.” – Nerdist

“…showcases the band’s penchant for taut, serpentine songwriting, combining megalithic riffage with dreamy breakdowns to typically ‘epic’ effect.” – Tiny Mix Tapes

Helms Alee, the Washington state power trio featuring Ben Verellen (guitar, vocals), Dana James (bass, vocals), and Hozoji Margullis (drums, vocals) have premiered another single off of their forthcoming album Stillicide (September 2, Sargent House) – listen to the pulverizing track “Galloping Mind Fuk” on Metal Injection

On their fourth album, Stillicide, Helms Alee continue their sonic tradition of blending heavy riffs, dark guitar pop, and math rock into songs that are at turns brutal, anthemic, and cerebrally engaging. Bolstered by the recording and production expertise of Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, Stillicide is not only the group’s strongest collection of songs, it is arguably their best sounding release to date. The heavier moments are that much more oppressive; their melodic angles are that much more beguiling, and the juxtaposition between Ben Verellen’s patriarchal roar and the siren song vocals of Dana James and Hozoji Margullis is that much more exhilarating.
Stillicide is available for pre-order directly through HelloMerch and iTunes.  Watch a teaser for the album on YouTube and look for a full album stream coming soon.  The band are on tour in the US at the moment with the Melvins, followed by another North American jaunt supporting label mates Russian Circles.
