Helm is a project of Luke Younger, a sound artist and experimental musician based in London, working with a vast array of revolving instrumentation and abstract sound sources to create haunting, post-industrial sound worlds.

Younger's compositions build a dense aural landscape that touches on musique concrete, uncomfortable sound poetry, noise, and hallucinatory drones. For the past ten years, he has also performed extensively in Europe and the US with Steven Warwick (aka Heatsick) as pioneering avant-drone duo Birds of Delay, and he runs the excellent label Alter (who have released records by Heiroglyphic Being, Helm and Richard Youngs among others).
