Album Notes
After spending most of 2012 building a loyal following in their South Jersey stomping grounds, Helmz Edge kicked off 2013 with the much-anticipated release of their eponymously titled EP. Our first introduction to Helmz Edge begins with the thundering tribal rhythms of the first single, "Drown Again". Driven by an infectious groove that builds toward a huge, wide-open chorus, it doesn't take long for the listener to realize that Helmz Edge knows how to construct "larger-than-life" songs that are tailor-made for the masses. The introspective rocker, "End of Me", follows with a salacious guitar riff that is backed by some of the album's strongest lyrics. During a hypnotic, mood-shifting breakdown, lead vocalist John Rullo laments that "The fight is too hard to break free from me" over a tastefully melodic Pete Kamenakis bassline, providing the perfect transition to a final climactic chorus. The mid-tempo, harmony-laden anthem "Away" is another instantly memorable song that further showcases the band's versatility. Featuring a lock-tight syncopated verse rhythm, an uplifting solo, and powerful vocal harmonies that end in a majestic choir-like crescendo, this song is bound to have everyone on their feet, helplessly singing along at Helmz Edge shows. "Come Clean", the most aggressive and diverse song on the album, seamlessly blends soulful vocal harmonies, primal screams, and spit-fire rap vocals over thick, heavy guitar riffs. After a blistering solo by guitarist Charlie Boucher, the song shifts into a brief acoustic interlude before exploding into a violent rage and abrupt ending - sure to leave the listener craving more. If there is one constant throughout this debut EP, it is the flawless mental precision with which drummer Tommy Verdecchio attacks the drums. Perhaps the best example of his prowess is on the triumphant last song, "Rise (Last Chance)". During an extended militaristic rhythm break, Verdecchio effortlessly shifts from commanding hard rock aggression into jazz-inspired fills and back again, single-handedly keeping the musical freight train - that seems as times to be teetering off the rails - on its tracks. The song, and album, end with the guttural gang-vocal proclamation that "This is our last chance to rise!". All-in-all, this is an impressive debut from an exciting up-and-coming band. It's clear that Boucher and Rullo have a natural songwriting and lyrical chemistry, and when Kamenakis and Verdecchio get "locked in" - as they consistently do throughout the album - you will be hard pressed to find a better rhythm section in modern rock. This is definitely a band worth keeping an eye on for future releases - let's just hope that this isn't "our last chance to rise" to Helmz Edge.
