    For the very first time Helalyn Flowers come in analog!
    On the occasion of the release of our new digital EP 'Frozen Star' (now available via Alfa Matrix official Bandcamp store) we just decided to unleash a wild bunch of cassette versions of the EP singles from the 'Sonic Foundation' album, in the true old mixtape style!
    Each cassette is a traditional C90 including 'Beware of Light' EP (feat. Chris Pohl of Blutengel, Terminal Choice...) on the A side and the new 'Frozen Star' EP on the B side! Fully handwritten and signed by band members Max and Noemi Aurora!
    We felt we had to do this sooner or later, recalling the old pleasure of packaging and compiling music by yourself, with only a tape-recorder and a pen with you as means! Like many of you, we grew up with mixtapes, back in the days when your friend used to make for you a C90 tape full of new music to discover and make deeper. Also, we were already musically active in the 90s (even not as Helalyn Flowers still!) and we used to spread demos of our bands that were blank tapes each manually recorded, writing titles by hand, at the most using a xerox! So... we DO wish to revive those days and to share with you all those vibes! Not by chance, there is a growing revival of this format in the current market and many indie and major labels are re-printing some of their main titles on cassette.
    Each Helalyn Flowers C90 mixtape is analogically recorded from the original masters by the band itself at the AZ Tech Room Studios in Rome.
    Don't miss this unique piece coming out directly from Helalyn Flowers' hands!
    Join the fascination of the legendary mixtape, the home to all that our favorite music comes from!

    Strong from the high impact that their latest album 'Sonic Foundation' had on the scene (ranking top 50 on the iTunes Rock Chart in the USA, top 10 on Bandcamp and top selling on the Metal section of Amazon, etc.), HELALYN FLOWERS now return with this album’s second “single” for 'Frozen Star', one the most acclaimed songs from the new album, and the perfect sonic demonstration of the Italian duo’s ability to perfectly balance the dichotomy within their own sound, showcasing like a sort of battlefield between dark, surreal synthpop and armageddon-like guitars and edgy, hypnotic as well as sci-fi like electronics. “We're all stars, but we can't shine without passion” is the maxim behind this beautiful and catchy song “Frozen Star”, through which a crescendo of mechanical and glacial atmospheres commanded by one of the most intense vocal performances of front-woman Noemi Aurora uncoils.

    For the occasion, HELALYN FLOWERS totally reworked this song under the new 'Byzantium version', bringing the listener a completely different vibe and sonority. By dismantling and dilating the original structure, this new shape showcases the well-known ability of the duo to model Gothic Rock in their own image, with passionate and seducingatmospheres of live-taken guitars finding a bloody companion in the highly-sequenced electro rhythms.

    “Frozen Star” also gets remixed on this 9-track EP by British electro legends INERTIA featuring a vocal duet with Reza Udhin (also in KILLING JOKE and BLACK VOLITION), as well as by DIFFUZION, MASSIVE EGO and SIN.SIN. Add to this bonus remixes of other album songs by label mates SIMON CARTER, VENAL FLESH and ENTRZELLE and you get a pretty diversified palette of genres for an all new journey into the realms of HELALYN FLOWERS’ “Sonic Foundation” masterpiece…
