One of the most original hard rock/heavy metal bands to rise up from the United States underground; The original and most prominent lineup featuring Page Hamilton on guitar and vocals, Henry Bogdan on bass, John Stanier on drums, and various background guitarists. Their original sound was based around heavy guitar distortion with droning riffs, outrageous guitar shredding and solos (influenced by bands such as Sonic Youth, Void and Killing Joke as well as many jazz musicians), loud chuggy bass lines, heavy snare drumming, and background guitars to create a "wall of noise" sound.more...
In 1992 they blasted into the mainstream with their second album "Meantime", which featured their most known song "Unsung". The band also released "Give It" and "In the Meantime" as singles, but both songs flopped in sales and didn't receive as much attention as "Unsung". Helmet's two albums "Strap It On" and "Meantime" were both so groundbreaking that it spawned many watered down imitator bands that ripp...
A fairly decent Groove metal band started in the New York City underground music scene in 1989. Fronted by lead guitarist and vocalist Page Hamilton. Original members include Henry Bogdan on bass, John Stanier on drums, and Peter Mengede on rhythm guitar. Broke up in 1998 but reformed in 2003 with new members.
Well, yes...I like the original Helmet; but not the watered down, newly reformed so called "Helmet" that plays crappy Alternative rock instead of Heavy metal.
A heavy metal band. They used to rock, but now they suck.
Haven't you all noticed that they sound different? Page Hamilton sings different, too. They sound like poppy mainstream crap now. They don't even sound metal anymore. It's not even Helmet without Henry Bogdan, Peter Mengede and John Stanier. Mr. Hamilton should just retire.
Helmet used to be a good band in the early 90's. But not anymore!
They suck and the singer is an asshole. I ate dinner with him in philly and he was the biggest fuckin' dick i ever met. he was also being an asshole to the wait staff. fuck him and fuck the whole crappy band. they're also one of the most repetitive bands i've ever heard in my life.
This band "Helmet" suck ass and their only OK song is that "Unsung" song which was featured on grand theft auto san andreas. they suck and thats the reason why they never had any hit singles in their whole 20 year career.
btw the singer is a douche bag.
A huge typo that Ultimate Guitar made, misnaming the legendary Aerosmith as "Aerosmoth" on the front page. The interviewer also made a mistake combining the names of Brad Whitford and Tom Hamilton and calling one of them "Brad Hamilton".
Fred: Hey Pete, I just got tickets to the Aerosmoth concert yesterday!
Pete: Who's Aerosmoth?
Fred: Oh didn't you here? Ultimate Guitar called Aerosmith "Aerosmoth". Now everyone's calling them that!

Often thinly disguised as a 'status update', the benchmark for a Facebrag is something that the offender would not normally say to friends, at work or otherwise in public for fear of being (correctly) branded as a complete nob.
Responding "FACEBRAG" on the offender's post in capitals can perhaps discourage others from repeating this heinous crime against humility.
GEORGE WILSON: is about to board the plane to the Maldives for three weeks of diving and surfing with his hot Page 3 girlfriend! So long suckers!
UNCLE SILAS: FACEBRAG! Hope your plane crashes you miserable cretin.
JEZ HAMILTON: just won the lottery and is about to de-friend everyone poorer than him LOL!
UNCLE SILAS: You dirty little FACEBRAG. I'm going to find you and inject you with Aids.
