Hollowed

tomvar With guitars reminiscent of a darker and more patient Ben Weinman, along with dramatic clean singing coming from darker realms, Helium Horse Fly is a fresh breeze of air in heavier guitar-music.
In this album, they double down on their mastery of pace, between tension and explosive release from the very opening song 'Happiness', through progressive ambiances of hesitation in 'In A Deathless Spell' or 'Monochrome'.
The whole discography is the gift that keeps on giving, so go ride along the fly. Favorite track: Monochrome.

Dan Curhan It takes guts to start an album like these guys do with Happiness, but perseverance is richly rewarded! I wish they unleashed a bit more heaviness throughout, but 'tis a minor gripe - the haunting atmospheres and moody female vocals blended with an almost mathcore chaos create something incredibly dynamic, thoughtful, and unique. Favorite track: Happiness.

Happiness 06:02
Somewhere in happiness There's flowers on the ground Tamed dolls held spellbound And all the little kings drowned What are these fuckers doing here? What are these fuckers doing here? Somewhere in happiness Get fatherers off the ground They're not happy birds You're not a happy bird Oh, the blood has not closed the deal yet Oh, the blood has not closed the deal yet Somewhere in happiness

Take a look outside Take a look outside Electric Take a look outside Swarming Erratic moves Flying razor blades Thrown at anytime Take a look outside Murk and dust Would rather scrape my eyes Than flow Do you fight fire with fire Or just sit there and burn? The greatest view from a sky Is the one of hell Meeting the sun There's no looking away So much gas around

Algeny 08:32
It's alright There may be a little taste of bitterness But it's alright A beautiful end of the line Prettily flawed Chaos crushed Pristine, are you not? Virginal, are you not? We welcome you We welcome you Relieved, are we not? Relieved, are we not?

Monochrome 11:40
Sitting in silence Across the grey god A wise man Rising his crown Smiling at dead waves What should, what should we think? And who shall we tell about what? There's no lair Under glowing skin No hiding Suppressed thoughts On a noise therapy The audience is sentenced Let us be re-bored, let us be Let us be re-bored, let us be The grey god Won't judge The wretches The acclaimed stars To each wave Its own weight We will be re-bored, we will be We will be re-bored, we will be The white man is coming our way The white man is coming our way The white noise is fading away The white noise is fading away Sitting in silence Across the grey god A wise man Rising his crown Smiling at dead waves What should, what should we think? And who shall we tell?

Shelter 02:27
Fixing daylight drilling Drain harder There's still something There's still something out there There's still something out there Out there Drain harder Drain harder

Recorded by Xavier Dromard, produced by Xavier Dromard and Stéphane Dupont, mastered by Brian Lucey (Ghost, David Lynch, Marilyn Manson, …) and illustrated by the disturbing artwork of David McCraven, Hollowed is an uncompromising album that continues to develop the band’s singular and spellbinding universe.

The 6 tracks listed on Hollowed depict a surreal, grotesque universe. Strange scenes are featured, in the far reaches of what defines our humanity. The calm is deceptive, the madness latent. Noise rock imbued with contemporary classical music, major cold burns come and pierce these landscapes, leaving irreversible alterations in their wake.

An album to listen to as a unique piece, as a polyptych, as a series of windows open onto a world to which we do not have all the keys, but which lets us glimpse at fascinating frescoes of unknown colors.

about

Helium Horse Fly Liège

Experimental rock, venomous noise, progressive baroque hardcore, putting a label on this unusual band is no easy task. A crossroads that brings together diametrically opposed worlds and bridges the gap between extremes, led by a female voice at a cross between incantation and lyricism, Helium Horse Fly offers a musical journey that oscillates between tense breathing spells and cathartic violence. ... more
