“I have some new songs written already. I just finished a movie score, and also in the last six months simultaneously I’ve been mixing my movie soundtrack stuff from the first three movies I did for these people and we’re just trying to set a release date now. It’s just called Page Hamilton Movie Music Volume 1. That’s gonna come out sometime this year. And then we’re gonna record a couple of songs before we go to Europe to get our feet wet again and get going, because it’s been too long. Like I said, I’ve scored these four movies since we did the last album and I’ve kept busy at that, but I’m really, really jonesing for new Helmet songs. I’m so happy with Seeing Eye Dog that I wanna do another record with this lineup and everybody’s stoked. So, we’ll probably, realistically, get in and record the rest of it in January and then figure like a spring release next year.”

Random Cover Song: Helmet – “Lord of This World” (Black Sabbath)

Cover songs are like a box of chocolates; you never know what you’re going to get. We here at Dying Scene love hearing punk bands do their own take on other band’s songs. Sometimes they pull off amazing interpretations of old classics, sometimes they’re not much more than humble tributes to a fellow artist, and other times they’re just downright laughable renditions of otherwise great songs. Good or bad. Intriguing or mundane. We’ll let you be the judge.

Today’s random song cover we have for you is Helmet covering a Black Sabbath song “Lord of This World”. The original song appears on Black Sabbath’s 1971 album Master of Reality, while Helmet’s version appears on a rare various artists compilation album called Volume Eleven, released in 1994. Listen to both the original and the cover here.
