Anyone who thought Swansea’s metal scene was dead obviously haven’t heard of Helldown.
Having come to our attention a few years back with their self titled ep, we were immediately impressed. Taking an old school, thrash metal approach and bringing it firmly up to date with their various other influences, the band have been a breath of fresh air.
Bangers like ‘Nepotism’ and ‘Thrive In Violence’ showcase the bands ability throw together mature songwriting, tight musicianship and glorious riffage!
Having stepped up the ante with the release of ‘The Watchers’ recently, the band have added an almost progressive feel to their music and continue to grow.
It’s on the live stage Helldown come alive though and although having to deal with an unexpected lineup change, the band seems stronger than ever and out to prove a point. If you haven’t caught them live yet then you need to get on it quick!
Helldown are going up in the world, make sure you get along for the ride (though your neck won’t thank you for it)!
