From the Amphetamine Reptile label, Strap It On is the first album release by Helmet, a New York hardcore rock band. One of the few rock outfits to approach the raw power of extreme metal music from that period, Helmet present Strap It On as a post-melodic assault of repetitive meat-grinding riffs and grooves, a vital addition to the gasping twitch of rock’s death-nerve in its terminal decade.
