Helmet, those short-haired purveyors of thinking-man's metal who
practically disappeared after 1994's disappointing album Betty , have
re-loaded and are set to release Aftertaste on September 24. According
to sources at the band's label, Interscope, the album, produced by Barkmarket's
Dave Sardi, is a return to the crunching sound on the band's much-hyped debut,
Strap It On .
