Watch” Helion Prime Perform A Full Set Of Sci Fi Power Metal In Sacramento, California

Sacramento, California-based science fiction power metal band, Helion Prime, performed at The Colony in Sacramento on July 2nd. Video of the band’s full performance is available for streaming below.

Back in April, Helion Prime released a new single, “Remnants Of Stars”, via AFM Records. Rhythm guitarist Jason Ashcraft commented on the release: “I’m very excited with how this song turned out. It holds true to the Helion Prime sound, but adds a few new elements into the mix. Kayla’s vocals are powerful and in your face. Her darker bluesy tone also adds a nice touch. Alex’s drumming is monstrous, and I feel it really shines on this single. A great taste of what’s to come from both of them! Chad also makes his recording debut with us, offering a very tasty solo that compliments the song well!

“We hope you enjoy this new single. It will also appear on Helion Prime’s sophomore album which has a working title of The Terror Of Saibot. An expected release is late 2017/early 2018. Stick around for more details in the coming months.”

Helion Prime is:

Jason Ashcraft – Rhythm Guitar
Chad Anderson – Lead Guitar
Jeremy Steinhouse – Bass
Kayla Dixon – Vocals
Alex Bosson – Drums

Gary Holt of Exodus: It’s a little outside the box. It’s really super crushing, but I think people will be surprised.

This weekend, Exodus will headline it’s first Bay Area club shows since late 2013 when the band takes over the Chapel in San Francisco’s Mission District for two nights. The band is promising a special event for fans with plans to film the Exodus as they perform some rarely heard songs alongside classic hits in addition to inviting some past members onstage for guest appearances. CBS SF spoke to Holt earlier this week about the two-night SF residency as well as his plans with both Exodus and Slayer.

CBS SF: When we talked a few years ago prior to Blood In Blood Outbeing recorded, you mentioned having gotten the “Pink Floyd or Rush of thrash” out of your system as far as Exhibit A and Exhibit B leaning towards more complex song structures. Do you see the new album sticking to the more straight forward type of tunes that were on Blood In Blood Out?

Gary Holt: You know, it’s hard to say. Of the stuff I’ve written so far, I think the songs are shorter, but I think they’re also at the same time more progressive than the last album. It’s a little outside the box. It’s really super crushing, but I think people will be surprised.

It’s an Exodus album, but as of now, the stuff Tom and I have been putting together is a bit different. It’s got those subtle changes that make for a departure, but it will still stay true to the core of the band’s sound.

CBS SF: Had Exodus played or toured with Maiden before?

Gary Holt: No, Maiden has been out on tour with Ghost, but I think they did this a couple of years ago as well. When they played the Southern California show they added some bands and made it kind of like a mini festival because that amphitheater down there is massive. I guess you’d call it a little one-day Maiden fest. It was a pretty epic show. It just had some epic technical failures.
