Power metallers Helion Prime have just released a guitar playthrough video of “The Human Condition” off “Terror Of The Cybernetic Space Monster”, which was released in 2018 via AFM Records. Jason Ashcraft and Chad Anderson show off their writing and playing prowess in this video for one of their personal favorite tracks:
“We are excited to release our first guitar playthrough. This video was a lot of fun to make and we promise Jason is having a good time despite looking bored at times. The Human Condition is one of our personal favorite tracks off the new album and was actually the first song we finished 100% for the album. It’s packed with a lot of killer riffs and just right for a playthrough video.”
“Terror Of The Cybernetic Space Monster” is Helion Prime’s second album and revolves around sci-fi themes with sweeping solos and powerful vocals. The album was also mixed and mastered at LSD studio by Lasse Lammert (known for his work with bands like Alestorm and Gloryhammer). The American band is sure to impress fans of Unleash the Archers, Iron Maiden and Helloween.
The video is available exclusively through GearGods.net at the following link: http://geargods.net/premiere/helion-prime-human-condition-playthrough/
In additional news, Helion Prime is confirmed to perform at this year’s Mad With Power Fest in Madison, WI on August 10th alongside Theocracy, Judicator, Lords of The Trident and more. Full details can be found at www.MadWithPowerFest.com.

Helion Prime was born from the mind of Jason Ashcraft, who approached vocalist Heather Michele (appears only on the first album) and asked if she would be interested in doing a project with him. The two had been longtime friends, and at the time intended to do nothing more than release a few songs together for fun, as both had musical commitments elsewhere. Soon, however, the two realized they had something good and quickly decided to put out a full album. That album would become the now “Self Titled” release. The two first released the album independently and quickly re-released it through Divebomb records. The band quickly gained the attention of the German label AFM Records who approached them to ink a deal.
Shortly before being approached by AFM Records, Heather Michele left the band in order to focus on her commitments to her other band. So the band found themselves in a bind, being offered a record deal but having no singer. Thankfully, AFM Records believed in them enough to sign them regardless. The band released a single “Remnants of Stars” and did a short DIY tour they called “Saibot’s Rampage Tour” with short term singer Kayla Dixon.
In 2017 the band held open auditions for a new singer – enter Sozos Michael. Many fans were thrown off by the band’s choice bringing on a male vocalist for the up until now female fronted group. At the end of the day, it’s really about who’s right for the part and there is no doubt Sozos can deliver what Helion Prime needs. Now, with the band feeling refreshed, and once again having a strong line up they quickly got to work with their sophomore effort set to be released via AFM Records.
The band is excited about the future and is already brainstorming the creative process for the third follow up. There is no slowing down for Helion Prime!
