Heldon is a French electronic rock band created in 1974. The name of the band was taken from the 1972 novel The Iron Dream by Norman Spinrad.

Like its predecessor Schizo, it is above all the group of guitarist Richard Pinhas (born 1951) who released a large number of albums under his own name.

He has worked with numerous collaborators among which musicians of the band Magma as well as philosophers such as Gilles Deleuze (of who he was a student) and writers such as Norman Spinrad and Maurice Dantec (the Schizotrope project).

Influenced by the work of Robert Fripp and Brian Eno, the music of Richard Pinhas and Heldon is sui generis and innovative and has in its turn greatly influenced the field of electronic rock.

The first releases under the moniker Schizo and later Heldon were entirely self produced and self distributed
