Helms Alee & Mutoid Man Show Review // Metal Assault

Helms Alee hit the stage, and brought forth a multi-faceted set that went through several variations over the course of its 45-minute duration, transitioning from mellow to violent and melodic to crushing and everything in between, the vocal harmonies being the standout feature of the band’s musicianship. This trio from the Pacific North West has earned themselves quite the fan base in the LA area owing to fine performances on past tours, and their fans were here in good numbers at this show. Choosing to play in minimal stage lighting, Helms Lee allowed their sound to be the primary focus for the audience, and delivered a set that was just the perfect companion and complement to what Mutoid Man followed with. Anyone attending these shows is getting treated to long sets by two very disparate bands, and the impact Mutoid Man makes can be attributed in part to the tone set by Helms Alee.

    I just wanted to leave some love for you guys! July 7th I had tickets to see Emma Ruth Rundle at Revolution Hall Roofdeck, it was amazing up there! Then I did a double take when I recognized the ladies of Helms Alee hanging out and watching Jaye Jayle and realized you had a show that same night. Was able to figure in enough time to witness ERR and then race over to Hawthorne Theater and catch your set too. The stars aligned, timing worked out perfectly and you played an amazing show! Can't wait to see you all again next time you're in PDX <3
