HELIUM HORSE FLY - Exclusive Premiere Of The First Track From Upcoming Album

Terra Relicta webmagazine has teamed up with Belgium based experimental/avant-garde/progressive/baroque band Helium Horse Fly, to offer you an exclusive premiere of the first track, "Happiness", from their outstanding new album Hollowed, which will be officially released worldwide on 18th January 2019 on CD, LP and digital formats via Dipole Experiment Records.

The album brings six venomous dark tracks that depict a surreal, grotesque universe, was recorded by Xavier Dromard, produced by Xavier Dromard and Steéphane 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.

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. Helium Horse Fly offers a musical journey that oscillates between tense breathing spells and cathartic violence.

Pre-orders for the album are launched today and you can order it at THIS LOCATION. Listen now to "Happiness" in the player below.

Helium Horse Fly was born in March 2009 in Liège, Belgium, and is the fruit of singer Marie Billy, guitarist Stéphane Dupont, bass player Dimitri Iannello and drummer Tom Malmendier's encounter. Back in spring 2010, the band gave its first shows and recorded its first EP, A dispute to redefine clearly frontiers between devils and angels, an early digital release of which came out in April 2010, followed by a physical release in October of the same year. The release was acclaimed by the press, and the track "Lights" won the PureDemo competition organized by the Belgian radio PureFM. Its successor, the EP Fishing For Ghosts, was released in December 2011 and met with the same reception. In early 2012, Bastien Dupont took over from Tom Malmendier and became the band's new drummer. The group then started working on its first eponymous album due to be released in October 2013 via Dipole Experiment Records. The album was in turn critically acclaimed. In spring 2014, the drummer Gil Chevigné joined the band and took over Bastien Dupont. Helium Horse Fly has opened for bands such as Kayo Dot, Enablers, Muscle And Marrow, Father Murphy, Black Math Horseman, Uzeda, Gâtechien, Overmars, Binaire,... and has played the 2018 edition of the Complexity Fest (Haarlem).
