A Band To Look Out For – HelixDown

Got a call from Vernon (Reid of Living Colour) on Thursday morning.  Anytime Vernon calls, I know its going to be an engaging and fun time, and this was no different.  He wanted me to come out to Don Hill’s out in Manhattan to see HelixDown, a progressive metal/hardcore duo that recently moved a few doors away from Vernon’s house!  In addition to playing bone crushing metal and hardcore, Chad and Kairo explore and have some fun with the concept of two brothers being a band, sibling similarities, sibling rivalries (real and imagined), and the whole nine.   I got a chance to hang with them and their mom for a bit and they’re really nice, very cool.

Vernon’s become a mentor to these guys so I know they’ll be in good hands.  They’re working on some more material now, but here’a link to their MySpace page:


Check them out.  I’m totally feeling what they’re doing!
