Helmet (band)

Helmet were formed in New York by Page Hamilton (vocals/guitar) with Henry Bogdan (bass), Peter Mengede (guitar) and John Stanier (drums).

They released their debut album Strap It On in 1991 through Amphetamine Reptile, after which they were signed to Interscope. Peter Mengede left after Betty in 1994, to be replaced by Rob Echeverria who, in turn, left to join Biohazard[?]. He was replaced by Chris Traynor of Orange 9mm.

Helmet were cited as an influence by many bands, including Silverchair[?]
