Portland heavy rock and doom metal wielders HIPPIE DEATH CULT premiere their third album "Helichrysum" in full via Doomed & Stoned, ahead of its official release this October 20th on Heavy Psych Sounds.
This new album marks a significant milestone as it sees bassist Laura Phillips stepping up on lead vocals, adding a powerful new dimension and sense of originality to their doom-tinged ‘70s sound, relentlessly powered by Eddie Brnabic's epic shredding. "Helichrysum" promises to be an unapologetically deep, adventurous and electrifying album that showcases the now three-piece's artistic growth and musical prowess, carried by the theme of endurance, healing and immortality. To support the release of "Helichrysum," Hippie Death Cult is set to embark on a full European tour this fall.
