Helms Alee Premiere Animated “Lay Waste Child” Video


Helms Alee have released a video for their song “Lay Waste Child“. The animated clip was created by Aaron Guadamuz. Speaking of the song and the video for it, the band offered: “A dark song and dark imagery with splashes of hope and color. Our call to arms to refuse to wallow in darkness but instead find and create beauty.” Guadamuz added:

“The song ‘Lay Waste Child‘ got me thinking of the industries and modern commerce that have changed cities like Seattle and San Francisco and how in some cases the people behind them have nothing more to gain yet relentlessly pursue profitability and maximization with unclear motivations.

Trophy hunting happens on the grandest scale and those in the lowliest of positions are often treated the worst. I instantly felt a deep connection with the band and these themes seem even more timely now than when we began.”

The song appears on their latest album “Noctiluca“, which is available now.
