All Music Guide:
One of many indie rock acts that reside in Kent, OH, Party of Helicopters performs an odd blend of dream pop vocals with heavy metal guitar licks, sort of like My Bloody Valentine meets Iron Maiden. The band formed in the late '90s around guitarist Jamie Stillman who is also the drummer of Harriet the Spy. Their first independent release Abracadaver sold over 3,000 copies on vinyl alone, proving their regional popularity, and their first national release Mount Forever was released in late 2000.
