We are bulking up our lineup for 2016. Must be a serious, professional minded musician with professional gear, and able to tour internationally. Auditions will be held in Menifee, California.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a powerful female vocalist for backing a lead vocals. Operatic style would be ideal but we are willing to keep an open mind. If you can play a traditional instrument that would be a plus.

We are looking for someone who can play Penny Whistle/Tin Whistle/Irish Flute, and/or Bagpipes.

If you want to tour in a serious band and are interested in an audition, e-mail us at

We are home from tour. What a crazy ride. What a great experience. We wish to thank everyone involved with this tour.

Jess: Thank you for your hard work and support. You are HELSOTT!!!

Fans: Thank you for your support! It is up to you to keep Pagan/Folk Metal alive in North America. Keep buying the merchandise, keep going to the shows and keep finding new people to drag to the shows with you. CONTINUE BUILDING YOUR LOCAL SCENES. You are the reason we are able to do what we do and we would like to keep doing this a long time.

RTN USA: Thank you for another opportunity to drag our brand of Pagan Metal around this amazing continent.

Promoters: Thank you for continually risking your asses to bring metal shows to your scene. The business is in a rough state right now and you have a sometimes thank-less role to play in keeping it alive.

Local Support: Thank you for dragging people out to the shows. Sometimes we all get frustrated with pre-sales, promotion, getting sets cut, playing in front of tour backlines…etc. With the state of the scene right now it is all a necessary evil. Just keep plugging away and keep working your asses off and good things will come your way.

House Sound/Stage Crew: We travel without a sound guy or crew most of the time and we put our sound in your hands. Thank you for your efforts in making us sound great in your market!

Venue Owner: Thanks for being open minded enough to let your Promoters book these rebels at your establishments.

Winterhymn: Thank you some fun evenings. We didn’t get much opportunity to party with you because you were only running with us the last week of tour, but you left a lasting impression on us. We shall do it again sometime.

Heidevolk and Mike: What else can we say other than FUCK YOU GUYS. YOU ARE TOTAL DICKS. HAHA. Seriously though, you guys are amazing. Thank you for your friendship and for your professionalism. You guys definitely set the bar high night after night and we aspire to be half as bad ass as you are. We look forward to the next run of 80’s metal after show parties, late night Heineken and whisky fueled ramblings. Mike, you are a bad ass. Thank you for your friendship and thank you for taking care of your boys. You went above and beyond to make sure we sounded as good as we could each night and you didn’t have to do that. We know you don’t read internet shit but thank you anyway.

Arkona and Anton: Thank you for TOUR! You guys killed it every night. Helsott were already fans of you guys before we signed up for this tour and now we are girly super-fans. Haha. Thanks for the friendships and for the parties. Stay safe the rest of Pagan Rebellion!!!

*We prefer an operatic style singer but not a must.

*Must be able to make audition/rehearsals in Menifee
Note: We don’t need someone to make rehearsals weekly. We would only require rehearsals before gigs and tours.

*If you can sing and play an instrument that would be a plus.

*Must be willing to tour. We have a tour coming up in July.

If you are interested in an audition please send a bio, mp3, and or video links to

Steph steps down as live vocalist

Published by helsott under Uncategorized.

As some of you may know, Steph Robinson has been unable to play live shows with us. We have decided to start looking for a new female singer to be a permanent member of the band. Steph will still be doing studio work and live backing tracks for us. She will always be a part of Helsott.
