The evolution of a hell born goliath.
Forged in the summer of 2012, BLACKHELM arose as METALSTORM and quickly released the "Fully Loaded Nightmare" 7" EP and spent the following 18 months evolving their sound and working on the follow up "I - Saeculum Obscurum" which saw release in early 2014.
Swiftly a claim was burned in Australian metal.
The second release saw a much darker, ominous element added to coincide with the snap neck thrash metal that defined their first EP. The release was backed by a national run of shows with Brazilian Death Metal legends KRISIUN (BRA) and New York crossover kings MERAUDER (USA), finishing with a hugely successful Japanese tour with MORS PRINCIPIUM EST (FIN) and BEYOND CREATION (CAN).
2015 saw the band change its name to BLACKHELM and continue to perfect it's methodical savagery with shows alongside PSYCROPTIC, KING PARROT, RUINS, MUNICIPAL WASTE (USA), HAVOK (USA), GOATWHORE (USA), TRUTH CORRODED, ULCERATE (NZ), NEOBLIVISCARIS and MINDSNARE in addition to the OBSCENE EXTREME FESTIVAL & NEW DEAD FESTIVAL.
With 2016 comes a turn of the screw for the band. The band has continued to evolve with a new vision, further uncovering the heaviest, most intimidating release to date.
"II - GRAND RUINOUS" finally saw release in April 2016, in conjunction with a national run of shows with EARTH ROT, including shows alongside HADAL MAW, THE LEVITATION HEX, KYZER SOZE & SEGRESSION.
With the beast freshly branded, BLACKHELM are focussed on furthering the evolution of their craft while staying true to their aggressive roots.
