Darby Spicer I've been a fan of Jim's work since his days with Ham. even had the honour of playing with him in the band Hellinacopter for a bit. His latest project "Hellenica" does not disappoint. This is Jim at his best!

See You In The Shadows… Favorite track: Morning Of The War Horn.

about

"Astride the horses of a bleak apocalyptic future Hellenica rides, six shooters strapped to their side. They blend and craft the sounds of a deep February depression with a tense yet apathetic Wild West showdown. They Are Out For Blood is the drone and ambiance of a grey cloudy sky wrote to music. A Morricone-ian bus trip across the overcast prairies, through snow drifts, during a perpetual dusk." - Kelly MacNeil - Weird Canada.

"Let yourself be lured in to this ominous landscape, and you might find familiar territory – if you’re a fan of guitar-noodling done right. “They Are Out For Blood” is resplendent with the sound of washed-out retro synthesizers and twangy old guitars driven through fuzzed-out tube amps, and filled with the sort of hollow reverb you might hear in a recently emptied Spanish villa, or simply watching the sun set.
The three tracks by Jim Demos’ project Hellenica explore very familiar, anthemic melodies, and while his seemingly spontaneous variations take you off the path in almost every phrasing, he keeps coming back to the that oh-so haunting, very Spanish, and very atmospheric place somewhere in his imagination." - Armando Luis Alvarez (original review in Ipaintmymind.org)
