"The best shamanic drumming, group trance/dance title to come along in ages."
"Helpers, Guides & Allies...ranks high on the list of music for the dynamic part of experiential sessions. It is a truly unique piece, since it was produced by a very talented musician, who is also a certified holotropic breathwork facilitator, intimately familiar with non-ordinary states of consciousness."
"Helpers, Guides & Allies...is a must have CD!! Byron and his talented colleagues have created a magnificent collection of sonic pictures, each artfully portraying segments of a fantastic journey. A journey with heart, excitement and drama. There needs to be a sequel!"
"Metcalf's evocative compositions guide the human psyche inward to experience its greater life-one that both heals and expands the soul."
"Helpers, Guides and Allies... is a deep space journey of healing and ritualistic proportions. Byron Metcalf, a holistic shamanic psychotherapist, designed this album to create altered states of consciousness. It works! A deep didg and a powerful synth surround his persistent rhythm. This is not ambience. This CD requires close and deep listening."
