Helion Prime
Helion Prime
Helion Prime was first conceived from a common love of metal and all things science. The band was founded when Jason Ashcraft (of Dire Peril) asked Heather Michele (of Graveshadow) to form a project with him. Between the two, they had worked with such artists as Mark Briody (Jag Panzer), Brittney Slayes (Unleash the Archers), Andy LaRocque (King Diamond), Ralph Scheepers (Primal Fear), Arjen Anthony Lucassen (Ayreon/Star One), and Niklas Isfeldt (Dream Evil). The concept; power metal with themes based on actual scientific theories with the occasional sci-fi tribute. The name Helion Prime was borrowed from an alien planet featured in the film "Chronicles of Riddick," a movie the two were great fans of. She accepted the exciting proposition without hesitation. The two recorded their first demo track in June of 2014, and with the help of members from Dire Peril and Axiom, Helion Prime debuted their first live performance in August 2014 at the Boardwalk in Orangevale, CA. The dynamic duo then released their first EP on February 26th, 2015 with a full length album in the works. Helion Prime’s lineup was completed after bringing Jeremy Steinhouse on bass and Justin Herzer (of Axiom) on drums. In August of 2015, Helion Prime set out on their first tour, playing shows in Oregon, Nevada, California, and Utah. Their debut album is set to be released in early 2016 and will be featuring special guest Niklas Isfeldt of Dream Evil. Stay tuned all you power metal fanatics!

From Witch City, MA

"Fans of At The Gates and Darkest Hour, you want this. If the blistering main riff doesn’t induce chair-moshing right away, just wait for the arena-ready harmonized leads once the guitar solo shows up. The track’s breezy 4 minutes blow by in what feels like half that time – even as I’m writing this, I’ve hit the replay button quite a few times already. It’s just one of four tracks on the band’s upcoming EP, 'The Vision,' and every minute of that release rips just as hard." - Metal Insider

"'A Vision In Red' is the EP’s opening song. The song blends together riffs that alternately swarm and jab, a flurry of pugilistic drum strikes, and a couple of flickering, spiraling guitar solos that really light up the song like a Roman candle — not to mention a nimble, thrumming bass line and some bleeding-edge vocal excretions." - No Clean Singing

"What is most noticeable throughout for this new Carnivora EP is the levels of musicianship, diversity, and dynamics that have been taken into consideration – the leads, the transitions, and the thick production values rival what you would expect from the larger, signed bands in the modern thrash/death scene." - Dead Rhetoric

"Live, Carnivora is a whirling behemoth. An onslaught of power, precision, and fantasy, they offer up a brilliant heavy metal fantasy with an artful and crystallized countenance. Michaud and Meehan are axe masters who shred in a sort of classic “Gothenburg melo-death” style (At The Gates, Dark Tranquility, In Flames); Lentine is an inspired hardcore and death metal front man; Hunt is a progressive and sculpted bass player who completes each architectural structure with absolute resolve; and DeLucia is a drummer that is as technical as he is interstellar, orbiting around the complete whole of the band, offering depth and nuance. The band pushes, pulls, and rages, and in a lush whirlwind, they manage to forge a special séance with every performance: each show stronger than the one before." - Ithaca Times
