With their roots ingrained in hard alternative rock, the group are set to impress with their own individual sound. Showcasing their talents throughout the Sydney music scene, Hela demonstrates a powerful live sound with the addition of Nick Lee, a jazz drummer who provides a smooth flair and elite technicality to the hard rock aesthetic of the band, and Samuel Cordeiro, a low to the ground, hard hitting bass player that you can't take your eyes off. Their live show is passionate and energetic, with the four taking you on an eye-widening journey from upbeat, jagged heights to the smoother banks of their most tender
