Help Is Not Coming is not here to generate terror, but instead, opts to create an atmospheric environment wherein the listener can feel the jungle slowly closing in around them. At its very outset, the musicians mix in the sounds of birds and rushing water, crafting an environment which feels as much a part of the album as the music of Alone in the Woods themselves.

Utilizing flutes, drums, and other instruments which could readily be crafted from the flora and fauna of the deep jungle, the core of Dobyns and Bologna's music on this album feels as though it speaks to something primal. Augmenting the acoustic sounds with electronic aspects results in Help Is Not Coming becoming a cinematic trek off the beaten path to an unknown world. With each successive track on the album, Alone in the Woods' music becomes more claustrophobic, as if with each beat of the music, a stalking force within the jungle is waiting to pounce. It's a steady progression, as one piece takes its lead from those which precede it.
