Dear angels of the night, if like us you feel like belonging in the dark and feel so misunderstood by those people around you who find you sad, strange and even dangerous when they see you aimlessly wandering off late at night. We invite you embracing the Empyrean of darkness through HELALYN FLOWERS’ 5th studio album. The ultimate result of long creative night sessions in the band’s own studio in Roma - Italy.

With “Nyctophilia”, Maxx and Noemi share their addiction to the night and carry us in their very own surrealistic nocturnal world where you will rapidly feel comfortable, far away from the daily routine, opening your mind to a unique mosaic of colours and emotions, plunging you into a sonic time tunnel sucking the 80’s New Wave moody catchy melodies and reinjecting them into a 21st century cyber industrial futuristic landscape, the whole reflected by HELALYN FLOWERS’ unique sonic kaleidoscope.

Strong from his constantly improving meticulous production skills that he could obviously solidify and refine throughout the previous albums recordings, Maxx intelligently revisited the aggressive hi-energy spontaneity of his early songs from the band’s 2007 debut “A Voluntary Coincidence” and fused it with the obsessive strength and vicious catchiness of the last “Sonic Foundation” opus.

“Nyctophilia” kind of sums up HELALYN FLOWERS’ stunning and quite eclectic discography while bringing it up to the next level. Wild mechanical industrial beats and sinister addictive synths blow an icy blast on the unique lush and revolted female vocals of Noemi Aurora. Fire and ice unite for a tour de force of high-impact sonic impressions and in-depth exploding emotions.

This wonderful new album offers fast-sequenced electro dance grooves and highly catchy pop vox clashing onto powerful electric guitar riffs (“Tetrachromatic”, the floorkiller “Kamikaze Angel”, the NEW ORDER-ish and almost romantic “Beyond” or yet the album title song “Nyctophilia”); but also kind of timeless pop wave tunes with a modern dynamic touch evoking classic acts like CLAN OF XYMOX, THE CURE, GARY NUMAN or yet DEPECHE MODE (“Unleash The Wolves”, “Breathless” and its addictive synth melodic lines, the darkwave goth pop “Run Away (With My Demons)” or yet the oppressive gothic rock anthem “When It Is Not Black Enough”). All beautiful songs on which Noemi’s voice evokes similarities with good old GHOST DANCE, SKELETAL FAMILY, SIOUXSIE, but also GARBAGE and other WITHIN TERMPTATION. Last but not least, HELALYN FLOWERS also stand for more upfront raging industrial metal moments with impressive adrenaline pumping revolted vocal assaults (“Let Me In” and the edgy and almost self-destructive cyber pop rock of “Morphine”).

With “Nyctophilia”, the alluring Italian duo offer us an escape from our basic down-to-Earth lifestyle towards the exciting darkside of the world where we acquire a deeper confidence with our own personal demons and turn them into sources of inspiration feeding our creative flow.

HELALYN FLOWERS’ new album has absolutely all the ingredients to apply for becoming one of the best electro pop rock albums of the year 2018! Play it loud and without any moderation!

The limited edition of the album holds a 12-track bonus disc featuring 3 amazing remixes by the band itself revealing the impressive ability of Maxx to mutate his own dark songs into forceful club anthems! Add to this a sonic orgy of remixes of the band’s last club hit single “Kamikaze Angel” rendered in the most varied styles ranging from hard dance to pop rock through lo-fi electro and other future electro. Last but not least, a very alluring duet on “Beyond” with the enigmatic IMJUDAS, Maxx’s very own and promising dark pop solo-project whose debut album is expected later this year...

Track Name: Tetrachromatic
Look at what you’ve done
Look at what you are going to be
Just a fragile evidence of life
Once again you hurt yourself inside

At the edge you live
At the edge you see
At the edge there’s nothing to please

Let me see a tetrachromatic
New vision of the world
And I won’t fight my pulse
Tetrachromatic life

Show me what it feels like
Show me the way
Show me the way
Track Name: Unleash The Wolves
I'm feeling a void inside of me
come and meet me
under the darkest skies
Where the creatures have no name
Where emotions
Shake as ultrasounds
When you said me that you're sick
to love what you're hiding
We are trained to suffer
But let's keep on fighting
Howl at the moonlight
We're breaking the rules
My blood is boiling
It's time to unleash the wolves

'Cause it's not just another day
It's not just another night
Unleash the wolf inside you
Let him devour your life

I'm feeling your frozen mouth on my skin
It's the hunger which is calling now
So break the circle of regrets
Feed the emotions
Free the spell tonight

When you said me that you're sick
to love what you're hiding
We are trained to suffer
But let's keep on fighting
Howl at the moonlight
We're breaking the rules
My blood is boiling
It's time to unleash the wolves

'Cause it's not just another day
It's not just another night
Unleash the wolf inside you
Let him devour your life
Track Name: Let Me In
I’m here
Where gods are made of strings
I’m into deep reality
But I’ll
De-synthesize my dreams
If you
If you will let me in

Let me in
Without hesitations
Let me in
I'll be your main obsession
Let me in
Your vicious aberrations
Let me in

Flatline machine
Format my pain
Restart my heart
Set-up my dreams

I’m here
Through erratic tendencies
I’m here
where the owls are what they seem
I’m Your shortwired conception
A brand new codification
Track Name: Breathless
You don't know me
Riding the underground
Through many lives I'm standing speechless
Out of sync's the time that turns your lies
Into real life - I can switch it

Every night a new skin
And I dream about you
Every night to get lost
In the wider gloom
Even the stars are addicted to flesh
We're in daylight disguise
Aren't you feeling that...

I'm breathless
Here without you, Here without you
I'm breathless
You're like white noise tainted black
I'm breathless
Here without you, Here without you
I'm breathless

Love, blood in transmission

Universe is hiding lots of signs
For everyone is made of secrets

Every night a new dream
A new dream about you
One more time sliding doors
Divide me from you
Even the stars are addicted to flesh
We're in daylight disguise
Aren't you feeling that...

I'm breathless
Here without you, Here without you
I'm breathless
You're like white noise tainted black
I'm breathless
Here without you, Here without you
I'm breathless

Every night a new skin
And I dream about you
Every night to get lost
In the wider gloom
Every night a new skin
And I dream about you
One more time sliding doors
Divide me from you
Track Name: Run Away (With My Demons)
I stand up by the flames
Of a urban hell
All my best memories
Are strictly up to my past
And I won't pretend
To be part of the game
No floor under my knees
No laces around my hands, oh no

Can you teach me how to forgive?
Tell me how I can fall in love
While this World's collapsing
Every night I
Every night I Run away

With my demons
Barefoot I run away
With my demons
Every night I
Every night I Run away

It's like I can catch-up
Every little trick
In this endless beehive
There's nothing I can believe
And I won't come back
Once the challenge begins
If you think there's a paradise
So, please bring it down to me
Track Name: Beyond
So you think this world is too blind
To break down these walls around
While everything seems going too fast
Then we'll realize there's much more
Beyond the veils

This void will tear apart me
This void will tear apart you
You made a blink out of me
And I will not wipeout you

So you think this world’s too numb
As gravity subdues the ground
Will it ever make it last?
We have no more tickets to ride
To ride beyond
Track Name: When It Is Not Black Enough
Never you mind when
It’s not black enough when
There’s no enlightened destination
And shapes are burning in the midst
Of my reaction
When it’s neither part of
my established nature that I’m clashing
Clashing In this very moment
and still

You stick to your own vanity
No sting, no sign will ever change this
Your glories, your tested life
No, I’m not part of them
No, they will not depart
(Me ...from this need / To get it in)

So many times we’re missing
So many times we dare
To destroy our feelings
So many times we needed
To die just for one day
And we came back fiercer

We cannot Shine if
It’s not black enough
Turn off all the lights of setted waking
And our dreams revive
Into the pieces of broken memories
That used to be our back-life streaming
Before the sun wore us away

It’s calling, calling us from where
Where there’s no light
But rather darkness
Visible to our eyes
From a black hole of life we’ll
Be together as one.
Track Name: Morphine
She holds a broken mask
Getting ready for the night embrace
The street's waiting
For her skin, so pale

Every time she smiles
Is to camouflage the pain
She's walking a thin line
Between death and life

But through his eyes she tastes freedom
It's not the same old story
It's not the same old story
And every time he's getting nearer
That man is more than a body
Her voice inside is shouting at him:

I must confess that I am frozen inside
Oh No!
When you can read my mind
Just like morphine you slide inside of my veins
And never let me go, Never let me go
(...)
And I'll never let you go, Never let you go

She would die for love
For it's not life that may fill her heart
Nor heal the pain
Oh, no! She's not to blame

She's walking a thin line
Between death and life
