The name Helforsout comes from the viking word meaning "built sturdy", which directly ties in with the band's main goal: providing the beefiest, sturdiest music in the most energetic, powerful form for all who love to rock. The Brainchild of Gabe Brown, Helforstout has been in existence for years, with a different lineup rocking the bar scene in Cedar Rapids until August of 2011, when Jeremy Jacobs and Dan Russell filled the positions of lead guitarist and drummer, joining original bassist Matt Moss, and rhythm guitarist Joe Brown, to solidify the electrifying presence that is HELFORSTOUT. The powerhouse group has since been storming bars from the Chrome Horse Saloon in Cedar Rapids, to the Sreaming Eagle bar in Waterloo and everywhere in-between. Helforstout takes pride in playing some of the best hits in classic rock, from AC/DC to Led Zeppelin, and modern rock tunes from the likes of the Foo Fighters and Soundgarden. The musicianship and raw energy of a Helforstout show is something that can't be missed. Stay posted for updates on this page for a Helforstout show near YOU!
