Meet Helpless, the new face of powerviolence

Metal, grind and punk collide on Helpless' new album Debt

If you’re a metal fan living in an outpost, far away from the larger communities of likeminded people that many of us take for granted, then starting a band and forging a path in the ways of heavy isn’t always the easiest thing to do.

“When we first started, it was just me and our bass player, Dan,” says Helpless guitarist Steve. “Finding a drummer to play the type of music we like in Plymouth isn’t very straightforward, so we messaged Rusty to ask if he knew of anyone, ’cause he seems to know everyone, and he just came back saying he could play drums!”
