she’s lost

September 30, 2010

I’m on a pretty heavy Helmet/ Page Hamilton streak these days. So what if  ‘Seeing Eye Dog’ wasn’t as stellar as I hoped, despite the cool artwork, promotion and sampler ep they gave out? It still has some pretty cool tracks. Check out the epic closer of the album. And note how it starts from a very simple riff.

Weird thing is, I haven’t even delved much into the first couple of Helmet albums. They’re …harder… to get an ear for. Yet, surprisingly, they’re the ones hailed as Helmet’s peak. Not just because of the songs themselves but because of the ‘powerful’ rythm section the band had back then, especially due to John Stanier’s drumming. I don’t get it. Maybe it was a 90s thing or something, I don’t know.

Anyway, I’ve 1.5 things in mind to blog about, just need to find the time. The semester is kinda rough. And its only been 5 weeks.
