Album Review

Helios Creed – “Galactic Octopi” – [Transparency]

Dianthus   6/12/2012   A Library, CD

Last time I listened to Helios Creed when their last album came out 5 years ago, I really thought they made their album in outer space. On their latest release “Galactic Octopi”, I still think they have not come back to earth yet and I am pretty ok with it . Helios Creed dishes out space rock at its finest along with nebulously clouded vocals and easy riding bass lines brought to you by Lux Vibratus and strong drumming from Aleph Kali. In true Helios Creed style, the guitar lines cruise in hyper – speed through a universe of different effects to create the kind of music they call ” Space Acid Cyper Punk Metal Ambient Weird Rock Psychadelic Thingy Noise” All that brings you a myriad of tape manipulations, flange, evil cackles, metallic percussion and sidewinding wah-wah guitar pedals that make your face squint with ooey – gooey goodness. Some of the tracks are a bit repetitive, but songs like “Star Streaker”, “Red Chopper” and the title track “Galactic Octopi” help you understand why HC has such a cult following. Get in your space rocket and rock on out to some Helios Creed now!
