Brocas Helm  

A cult San Francisco band that seemingly has been around forever, Brocas Helms's unique twist on metal (kind of a dark, moody, semi-thrash style) is quite different, really a one-of-a-kind style with the exception of neighbors The Lord Weird Slough Feg, with whom Brocas has gigged with in the past. They recorded two albums back in the eighties and then went sixteen long years before their third album, 2004's Defender Of The Crown, came out. They haven't recorded since but still play live on occasion.
