    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...

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 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

I'm not alone, I'm not alone When you treat me like your Oxygen of gold I would die To kiss, to kiss all of your scars You bring me your light Through your blackened dust I will give you I will give you all my electricity 'Cause you're my kamikaze angel I know I won't, I won't be afraid To leave my human form Through your mortal embrace I will give you I will give you all my electricity 'Cause you're my kamikaze angel Bring me with you I leave no crying Bring me with you On your wings of fire

Let Me In 03:58
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
5.
Breathless 05:12
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
6.
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
7.
Beyond 03:52
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
8.
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 need 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.

Nyctophilia 03:47
In the dark I feel you Healing the wounds of time One day you're coming nearer One day you're lying so high Set me free in your wonders Teach me to be strong One day I'll find a reason To fight the World And find my way Oh Nyctophilia (x2) In the dark I feel you Healing the wounds of time Your pale glimmers guide my visions Your black crows cover my eyes Set me free in your wonders Teach me to be strong Today you are the reason To fight the World And find my way Oh Nyctophilia One step away To Nyctophilia I'll fight the World I'll find my way Here you are Oh Nyctophilia Just like the smell after the rain Lead me now Oh Nyctophilia
10.
Morphine 05:00
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
