Editors’ Notes

Helmet leader Page Hamilton has been making unorthodox heavy music for decades. While his group is really him and the nearest men standing, Helmet still signifies a tight and concise aural torture. The group’s first albums remain among their most significant, but 2010’s Seeing Eye Dog has plenty of attitude. Helmet arrange their music to work at different levels. “LA Water” has harmonies and conventional verses and choruses, but the sound keeps moving around the room. Guitars bounce into space while a repetitive drone lurks in the background. “So Long” hints at metal while gently moving towards post-punk. “In Person” adds a guitar shimmer that mutates into a driving punk backbeat. “Morphing” is a stringed instrumental. “White City” broods like Soundgarden. The Beatles’ “And Your Bird Can Sing” gets a peculiar makeover. “She’s Lost” and “Miserable” channel that ‘90s grunge angst. The live tracks from the 2006 Warped Tour are jarring and tough, a further reminder of the band’s tense and terse legacy. (“Thanks for being here this morning,” says Hamilton, after waking any sleeping person within miles of his stage.) 

Customer Reviews

Please stop making music

Page's singing is getting worse with every new album.

i don't hate it

the problem with this, and "size matters" and "monochrome" for that matter, is helmet blends in with all their clones. when they disappeared in 97 they were a huge influence on heavy music. when they (just page really) resurfaced in 04 every band on the radio owed their success to helmet. ironically helmet still can't get any radio play. this album will do(i mean it's helmet for christ's sake) but they(he) need to re-invent themself(himself). page is at least 50 so i fear time is running out. on a more positive note, the "betty" re-issue is great

Seeing Eye Dog

Far are the days of Meantime, but this new offering from Helmet is darn good. The extra live tracks are awesome.

Like many influential bands, Helmet were born out of an unusual set of influences. Oregon-born guitarist and founder Page Hamilton had actually moved to New York City to study jazz, but found inspiration in the late '80s through post-punk acts Sonic Youth, Killing Joke, and Big Black, and envisioned a group that combined then-unusual tunings (particularly dropped D) with uneven and jazz-like time signatures and harmonies. The result was Helmet, the East Coast's answer to Seattle's then-underground...
