At the start of the nineties with the breakthrough of alternative bands such as Nirvana and Pearl Jam, Helmet were tipped by many as the next big thing. Unfortunately, they never achieved the success they deserved, but listening to "Meantime" ten years after it's release, it's impact on today's rock scene is both astonishing and undeniable. Not convinced? Ok, read this: without Helmet - "Meantime", there would be no System Of A Down, no Tool, no Therapy?, no Glassjaw, and no Deftones. In short, the past decade would have been a very dull time for rock music. Awesome tracks such as "In the Meantime", "Role Model", and the classic "Unsung" deserve to be heard by every self-respecting rock/punk/metal fan. It's a shame that like most classic bands (Kyuss, Soundgarden, Far, etc.) Helmet are no more. "Meantime" only sold a few thousand copies, but you can bet your life that everyone who bought one went and formed a band straight afterwards.
