The critically acclaimed long-anticipated new album – the first in six years – came with heavy guitar riffs, blasting drums and the distinctive voice of frontman Page Hamilton. The album is energy in its purest form. Every track adds its unique flavour to mix with hard rock, alternative, metal, and punk, showing the world again how versatile a rock album can be.

Produced by Page Hamilton himself and mixed by award winning record producer, engineer and mixer Jay Baumgardner, Dead To The World will be released as CD digipak, transparent Vinyl and Digital on October 28th, 2016 on earMUSIC.

The Gold certified and Grammy nominated band Helmet has released eight widely acclaimed albums since originally forming in 1989 in New York City. Fusing Zeppelinesque riffing with a vehement post-hardcore precision, augmented by dense chords and offbeat time signatures based in singer Hamilton’s formal jazz training. The combination was that rarest of visionary creations–it was successful in its own time.

Bands such as the Deftones, Rise Against, Pantera and Tool have all cited Helmet as an influence, and not just for Helmet’s blistering, aggro approach but for the band’s sheer musicality and brains. See, Helmet, among other things, is a work of art.
