HELMET picture
Helmet is an alternative metal band formed in New York City in 1989. Originally coming from the post-hardcore scene Helmet has been said to be the "thinking man's metal band" with their syncopated often dissonant riffs in irregular time signatures. The band dissolved in the late 90s after releasing four full length albums, but in 2003 vocalist/guitarist/main songwriter Page Hamilton reformed the band with a new line-up.

HELMET Strap It On

Album · 1990 · Alternative Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
alice-in-chains4lyfe
"Strap it on" is the debut album from the legendary alternative metal band Helmet. Helmet are one of those bands who simply don't ever get enough credit. Many often credit band's like Faith no More and Rage Against the Machine for starting the so called nu metal genre, however Helmet are definitely a band who had a large impact on the genre, with their use of drop d tuning influencing everyone from Korn, to Tool, to Marilyn Manson.

This album is their most hardcore punk influenced, and sounds very different from the band's later albums which were more straightforward alternative metal/hard rock affairs. The sound of this album is a very unique mix of post-punk, noise rock and metal. The albums production is very raw (like most underground 80s hardcore albums) however this is a good thing as it adds to the whole rough and dirty feel of the album.

All the songs have the same raw anger, but my favourite has got to be "Sinatra" a song with some incredibly heavy riffs, later covered by fellow alternative metal Deftones. "Make Room" is an interesting heavy blues type of song, and features a monster riff/drum outro. Page Hamilton has never been known for his singing ability, and it shows on some songs on this album. Songs like "Rude" could have been much better with a different singer. This problem was especially prevalent on the band's post-90s albums.

Overall a fine album, and a great addition to any hardcore or alternative metal fans collection.

HELMET Seeing Eye Dog

UMUR
"Seeing Eye Dog" is the 7th full-length studio album by US hardcore/alternative metal act Helmet. The album was released in September 2010 through Work Song Incorporated. It´s the first album release in four years since the release of "Monochrome (2006)" and the 3rd album release since Helmet´s reformation in 2003.

The music on "Seeing Eye Dog" is unmistakably the sound of Helmet. For better or worse. The combination of raw angular post hardcore riffing, shouting and aggressive vocals and softer and more melodic alternative rock/metal elements is something Helmet have more or less perfected over the years. They´ve carved a niché for themselves and they actually have a rather unique sound. Lead vocalist Page Hamilton is probably an aquired taste with his often monotone and at times almost sedative clean vocal style but this vocal style combined with his more raw and aggressive type vocals have always sounded pretty good to my ears. It´s not completely unlike what Jaz Coleman does in Killing Joke.

While the band have their basic style nailed, it´s unfortunately always been so and so with highlights and "Seeing Eye Dog" is no different in that respect. The quality of all tracks is high, but I´m not able to remember many tracks after the album finishes. With only 10 tracks and a playing time of 37:41 minutes that should have been quite easy. It gets better the more spins you give the album, but the songs never truly stick.

...so in the end "Seeing Eye Dog" is a bit too much of a "by the numbers" Helmet album. It´s enjoyable, professionally produced and performed with conviction, but it doesn´t set standards like their early releases did. A 3 - 3.5 star rating is warranted.

The Angry Scotsman
This is one of those classic albums that is largely unknown yet highly influential. "Strap it On" may have been the first alt metal album, or at least one of the very first.

Released at a time when most metal bands were thrashing and shredding away, this album must've been a shock to those who heard it. This albums moves at a perpetually moderate pace, built on drop tuned, staccato riffs, heavy syncopation, and lots of noise.

The guitars are played in drop D and heavily distorted. The guitar work is much simpler than metal at the time, but may be powerful. Much of the riffing is done in a stop/go fashion. Bursts of riffs that give it a very explosive feel. While this would become THE alt metal standard, it was very new at this time. The staccato bursts of riffs are sometimes juggled with continuous "spidery" segments, (they feel like they are crawling around the fretboard!) and the occasional outright groove.

There are solos, but they are pretty unorthodox usually being more noodly than shred. This would become another heavy music staple of the 90's, the elevated non shred solo. Sometimes the solos on "Strap it On" are simply feedback, or replaced entirely with a wall of noise.

In order to distort the typical song structure there are often segments of feedback and wildly chaotic noise. The drumming is simple and brutal, the bass, (when you can hear it) is low and distorted fuzz and Hamilton's vocals are nails on a chalkboard. Almost purposely dissonant and amelodic yells punctuate the walls of noise.

From start to finish there is little variation on this album. Every song is a sonic pummeling, except for "Sinatra" which gives us a bit of a break. The album also has a VERY low fi production.

"Strap it On" may sound like noise, and it may not sound very groundbreaking, but at the time it was. This album is the definition of alternative metal: Heavy, angular riffs, lots of groove, unusual song writing, a lot of off tempo and the classic "explosive" sound of alt metal.

This album may have also been an influence on post-metal with its heavy use of feedback, repetitive and unorthodox song structures, and eschewing of most metal norms while being savagely heavy and aggressive.

A very challenging album and one not meant for all. But a historical one, and a pretty good if you can stomach it, though certainly it's very nature makes it a bit limiting.
