Lhokseumawe Post Hardcore/Metalcore act MESSAGE FROM HELENA was formed in November 2011 by Gilank (vocals), Tito (guitars), Anggra (guitars) and Odie (drums). Former I’m Kidding bassist, Hilman joined them later, and a synth player Andie was added in the line up.
The band’s name idea came from Gilank’s girl friend, Helena.
Started out as a cover band of Asking Alexandria, Black Veil Brides and other metalcore/post hardcore bands, Message From Helena then began playing their own song and climbing the ladder to stardom in local music scene in its own right. They were featured in some Lhokseumawe’s major gigs, alongside another metalcore bands such as SACRIFICE IN VAIN and CLASS MONSTER.
Gilank relocated to another town and left the band in August 2012, followed by Anggra and Andie, made the MFH in an uncertain situation. The remaining members decided to continue as a trio and kept on playing in local gigs with helped from some additional singers and players.
Eventually, a new frontman was found. Raidy joined the band in May 2013. At the same time a new bassist Andy was recruited and Hilman change his position into guitar. MFH is back in its full power and energy, and as Odie stated to Acehmusician.org:
“Now we can focus in making our debut EP and put the non-technical stuffs aside. We are ready for a more challenging quest!”
