I had the opportunity to write somewhat of a “classics” review for Boston’s I Heart Noise music blog, which is run by Ilya Sitnikov. I reviewed Helmet’s debut full-length album, Strap It On, which was originally intended to be used for an Amphetamine Reptile feature series. It’s now being treated as a guest review. Helmet fan? Give it a look and then do some searching around I Heart Noise: It’s a very comprehensive blog and it features some excellent bands, releases and music. Ilya does an excellent job.
