With Meantime, released in 1994, Helmet entered the legend ! More than 1 million copies sold and an iconic status for his leader, Page Hamilton, considered since then as the most innovative guitarist of the nineties.
This said, Helmet have also released some clutch albums like Betty in 94 and Aftertaste in 97, both albums that will also come closer to the million copies.
After a slip up and a reunion in 2006, the band surprised everybody with the release of Dead to the world, a new well-acclaimed album, released last year.
Helmet will definitely be one of the most awaited band of this year’s Hellfest edition and will take this occasion to do a mini-tour of only 3 dates and cities.
Lucky you, one will be here on June 13th !
« You could make a strong case that there are traces of Hamilton’s style in the music of Tool, the Deftones and even the likes of Weezer and the Smashing Pumkins ! » - Pitchfork
« Nobody in the US sounds quite like Heavy metal legends Helmet. They cleverly blend the genres of Classic Rock, Heavy Metal, Punk Rock and Alternative into a powerful, clear-headed force that has been kicking ass since early 1989 ! » - www.metal-temple.com
