Helleborus is the musical demonic black metal brain child from brothers Jerred & Wyatt Houseman. The name is taken after a gorgeous but poisonous flower that blooms in winter. Very fitting their lyrical theme, which has a lot to do about sexual mysticism. The Carnal Sabbath is the duo’s debut album after releasing three singles last year.
I would best describe Helleborus as an evil mix of Satyricon and Belphegor brought together with sinister riffs and vocals that is sure to lure you in, like a Siren, to Helleborus world. Just to make you want to pick that deadly flower in the winter, being there calling out for you to grab it, and you will grab it. You will not just do it as Helleborus lures you in, you will do it because this album is one of the great debuts of the year made by two brothers who has created something truly amazing.
