VARIOUS ARTISTS: Meantime [Redux]: 2 x LP

This is a compilation of some of the newest crop of underground metal bands covering the classic LP Meantime by Helmet in its entirety. In addition, there are six extra cover songs from various other Helmet records as well. If you’re into Helmet, you’re likely going to be into checking out some of these cover versions. That’s why these kinds of tribute records come out, right? Some bands play it straight while others really take these songs under their wing and make them their own. You usually know exactly what you’re going to get with tribute records, and there are certainly no surprises here. –Mark Twistworthy (Magnetic Eye, merhq.net)
