Who Are…Heliotropes

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

It's clear from the get-go on A Constant Sea, the debut from Brooklyn psych-sludgers Heliotropes that something ain't right. On the album cover, a grim, skeletal visage peers out from the shadows. Thirty seconds into the first song, frontwoman Jessica Numsuwankijkul warns "red comes rushing through your skies" over the same gristle-greased guitars that occupied the better part of Smashing Pumpkins' Gish.

They Say All Music Guide

Having waited more than a decade to finally wax their excellent debut, Pentagram wasted little time in preparing its follow-up, 1987′s even more accomplished Day of Reckoning. Though it was dedicated to Blue Cheer, the album is arguably the most faithful tribute to the original spirit of Black Sabbath ever committed to tape. Vocalist Bobby Liebling always recalled Ozzy Osbourne with his uncultured, barely adequate vocal delivery, and even borrows a few lyrics on “Evil Seed” and “Madman.” But on Day of Reckoning, it’s guitarist Victor Griffin’s ability to replicate Tony Iommi’s guitar tone and playing style which is nothing short of amazing. In fact, on the incredible “Broken Vows,” he positively channels his spirit! Yet, this remarkable talent easily transcends mere imitation to become a loving re-interpretation of a well-known formula. Everywhere else, the quartet is in top form, whether charging through the galloping title track, or taking their time on the wonderfully melancholy, drawn-out doom epic “Burning Saviour” — very reminiscent of Swedish doomsters Candlemass. All things considered, Day of Reckoning remains Pentagram’s best all-around effort, and provides an ideal first glimpse at this very influential, but seriously overlooked group. – Eduardo Rivadavia
