Helen Zachariah

Save The Plants EP

NDN

I’m confused. Psychedelic messages creeping through my mind, and guitars singing about planets and plants and even the vinyl is green. Is it on the wrong speed? No… it’s just me. It’s a strange spoken-word distorted chant in space of sorts, under the rule of songwriter Helen Zachariah, and she has a little help from… it’s Jeremy Gluck again, and that’s all I need to know to know I should keep listening. It’s almost experimental noise fuzz, but with creepy and cool Marc Bolan twisted lyrical secrets driving through the grooves. The flip side is still hit with the waves of distorted fuzz guitar, a sonic drone, but the vocals are more distinct, and a little more cohesive, though just as hypnotic.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
