HELMET Reunite, Plan New Album

August 22, 2003

Guitarist/vocalist Page Hamilton has teamed up with ex-ORANGE 9MM guitarist Chris Traynor and ROB ZOMBIE members Blasko (bass) and John Tempesta (drums) in an all-new version of HELMET, the acclaimed alt-rock outfit that is widely credited for the the jagged riffing and stop-start rhythms utilized by many "nü-metal" bands, including LIMP BIZKIT, DISTURBED and CHEVELLE.

Former NINE INCH NAILS keyboardist Charlie Clouser will produce the group's record, and a tour is being planned, according to MTV.com. In the meantime, the retrospective "Helmet Unsung: The Very Best of Helmet (1991-1997)" is due September 23.
