“Helpers on the Other Side” LP
been meaning to sit down and digest this for a while but the craziness of the
past few months kept me from truly being able to check this out until just now. This
is trippy heavy rock where exotic and
experimental textures collide with crushing power chords for songs that are
intense, sometimes surreal but always captures the imagination and stands
apart. Delivered with the power of a
steamroller these tales of strangers in strange lands, refugees, war and
airborne illness unveil a dark vision of this world that’s a bit disconcerting
while it takes you to places you didn’t expect.
Triclops’ music is a sonic adventure that, while polarizing to some,
will interest many fans of heavy music who are willing to open their minds and
let the music take them to other places.
I’d say more but I have to pick my jaw up off the floor. (BOONE)
