UK extreme noise-makers HELPLESS are streaming their critically acclaimed debut album Debt, ahead of it's release this Friday, September 8 via Holy Roar Records.
Exclusively premiered by The Independent who are calling the band 'merchants of savagery', the full album can be listened to here: http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/helpless-debt-exclusive-album-stream-a7928396.html
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.
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.
Debt will be released on September 8 via Holy Roar Records and is available to pre-order here: http://bit.ly/HelplessUK and distributed via Deathwish in the USA .
