    Anno 2016, the Italian duo of HELALYN FLOWERS strike back at full force with the uncompromising determination of redefining our sonic foundation! A quite ambitious challenge after the detonating success of their last studio album “White Me In // Black Me Out” released back in 2013 after which we were all wondering what could be achieved next… Well, with the last October surprise release of the “Beware Of Light” EP, HELALYN FLOWERS clearly reaffirmed their sonic force and capacity of selecting the perfect guests to collaborate with for an optimal result. The astounding duet with Chris Pohl (BLUTENGEL, TERMINAL CHOICE…) instantly pushed them back in the spotlight of all alternative clubs across the globe.

    N0emi Aurora and maXX are not the kind of artists who content themselves repeating the same recipe of success again and again. And on this new 4th full length album, they more than ever push their artistic limits to the max: connecting extremes together, fusing eclectic music styles just like playing with fire and ice, experimenting with their colorful sonic palette for the absolute fusion of genres distilled into their very own and so characteristic hi-energy and modern darkwave style lead by the charismatic female vocals of N0emi Aurora whose impressive vocal range and extravagant personality are showcased at their ultimate best evoking singers like Lady Gaga, Siouxsie Sioux or yet Cristina Scabbia at other moments! Just take extremely opposite songs like the catchy addictive cyber pop of “Frozen Star” and the speed punk rock collaboration with ANGELSPIT on “Maths Of Chaos” and you clearly perceive that the bar set by this album of maturity for HELALYN FLOWERS affirms the band’s open minded creative approach. We witness their unique ability to marry their diverse range of influences across their compositions while keeping a sharp sound cohesion along the line while making at the same time allusions to RAMMSTEIN’s heaviness, GARY NUMAN’s melody, DAVID BOWIE’s depth, KMFDM’s rage, THE CURE’s darkness or yet MADONNA’s magnetism.

    From the martial rhythmic Industrial Metal of "Karmageddon" or "New Days Of Babylon" to the EBM-injected Electro Rock of "Synthetic Paranoia". From the surprising blend of PSYCHIC TV's Acid Techno-Era meets THE PRODIGY and Black Metal-infused KILLING JOKE tones of "Shadow Complex" to the sci-fi ambient touch of the post-urban hit "Frozen Star". From the freezing ritual chant of “Eerie” to the goth rock anthem “For All Bad Things” or yet the ultimate industrial ballad “I Saved An Angel” and its ghostly guitars, melodic piano notes and stunning vocal lines. “Sonic Foundation” is an addictive album uniting catchy Electro and alluring Industrial Metal in absolute symbiosis thanks to HELALYN FLOWERS’ unique sound alchemy bringing power, melody, darkness and sexiness in one cohesive sound shell. "Sonic Foundation" is an album that uncoils through dangerous and surrealistic figurative worlds, invoking post-primitive scenarios à-la William Burroughs and David Lynch.

    The band’s strong imagery and iconic visuals get an expanded dimension on the albums deluxe carton box edition augmented by the "Androids In Agony" bonus disc, a non stop-mix of reinterpretations by acts like THE PSYCHIC FORCE, ALIEN VAMPIRES, EGO LIKENESS, SIMON CARTER, EEXEE etc., while Diana S. from JUNKSISTA and Ms Larsen from LUNACY BOX contribute with remixes and additional guest vocals. Cherry on the cake: add two hard-club mixes from HELALYN FLOWERS of their songs "Karmageddon" and "Shadow Complex"…

Excuse me but I've just to cut my strings from your hands And I am sorry but I've just to explode far away, so far away, so far away Come Come baby Come down Bleed and play with me This is what you want to be this is what you want to me I'm not son of what is static I'm like a pill in your mouth that's slowly thawing I'm not what you're thinking of me I'm overturning and now I find the exit Excuse me but I've just to cut my strings from your hands And I Am sorry but I don't belong to your own game to your own game to your own game Come Come baby Come down Bleed and play with me This is what you want to be this is what you want to me I'm not son of what is static I'm like a pill in your mouth that's slowly thawing I'm not what you're thinking of me I'm overturning and now I find the exit Bleed And Play | Bleed And Play Play With Me | Play With Me

Walk down these streets I guess I'm getting lost in a lie It seems like a vision You let me see the world through your eyes Where I could be lovely I could be your pretty dolly Go! Go! Kill me inside! Build your monster in disguise But I am mess , I'm chaos I'm tremendously contagious Not a faint illusion I'm playing my revolution Keep staying alive for a moment in the unknown Beware of light 'cause sometimes it’s a fake comfort So get down on your knees And take a Take a bite of my heart These are my feelings But I guess You’re not strong enough To be proud and precious To free your rabid passion To build your empire To set your fears on fire 'cause I'm lust, I'm madnesss I skid into your essence Guilty of being a sinner I'm Unbreakable Material Keep staying alive for a moment in the unknown Beware of light 'cause sometimes it’s a fake comfort Intoxicating tears Purify what you fear Evoking Temptations

Frozen Star 04:05
There is no place for a frozen star now Your memory is ablaze But your thrill's so cold A dream in a cage, a king with no scepter But where is your flame? what have you become now? You wanted to steal my soul You're everything is going to die and reborn in me I'm ready to disconnect You need to fill the void Just keep the key in my hand before I start the game it'll never be the same There is no place for a frozen star now that I'm falling down Holding on my crown Through the coldest sound of ashes and dust It never be the same It never be the same No, no it never And I'm falling down Holding on my crown But where is your flame? what have you become now? You wanted to steal my love Defusing my heart like a time bomb ready to crash No way disconnect Stand up inside the coil looking for someone to blame but if the mission will fail it'll never be the same There is no place for a frozen star now that I'm falling down Holding on my crown Through the coldest sound of ashes and dust It never be the same It never be the same No, no it never And I'm falling down Holding on my crown But where is your flame? what have you become now?

Karmageddon 03:24
How do you feel when you read in my soul? This world is getting closer now that I am blind oh... won't you stay here? So beautiful but cruel as time is running after life hunt me tonight K.A.R.M.A. This is a Karmageddon It's blowing me away K.A.R.M.A. This is a Karmageddon It's blowing me away Karmageddon! Rise up with me but get ready for the fall This world is getting closer now time after time plug into my dreams there's no escape for you no fear no remorse this time no destiny no guide K.A.R.M.A. This is a Karmageddon It's blowing me away K.A.R.M.A. This is a Karmageddon It's blowing me away Karmageddon!
