Quick Overview

Seeing Eye Dog, HELMET's seventh album, is one of the band's most uncompromising and ambitious releases, embodying the classic and utterly unique Helmet sound and pushing it into regions the band has never before explored. One big reason for that spirit of musical adventure is the record is essentially self-released (through the Work Song label). "I just felt completely free to do whatever I wanted to do," says frontman Page Hamilton. "It was really fun to make this record because I just felt this...freedom."

Details

In Helmet's twenty years over a dozen musicians backed up Page Hamilton, and with the exception of Chris Traynor, who played bass for Helmet's previous two albums, Seeing Eye Dog boasts another new lineup. Yet, with every shift, it seems Hamilton distances himself from the band’s golden years in the early ‘90s. Now with guitarist Dan Beeman and drummer Kyle Stevenson, the group sounds heavier and angrier. Those looking to hear the classic sound clash of alt-metal and post-punk that gave the band roots should stick with the first three records. Even so, in this new incarnation, when Helmet sidesteps the typical drop-D Modern Rock that makes up the majority of Seeing Eye Dog (as well as Size Matters and Monochrome), things get really interesting. Shoegaze and power pop are slipped into “LA Water,” the Foo-Fighters-esque “In Person” focuses on tight melodies, and a sweeping string instrumental titled “Morphing” shows off Hamilton's abilities to craft moods as a Hollywood composer.
