Product Description

HELLYEAH - Five musicians, three bands = creative collision of sonic proportions. The highly anticipated debut release features MUDVAYNE lead singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett, former PANTERA drummer Vinnie Paul and NOTHINGFACE guitarist Tom Maxwell and bassist Jerry Montano. The quintet includes three of hard rock's most revered and valuable players, with careers highlighted by an astonishing run of chart-topping gold and platinum albums, major industry awards, critical acclaim, Grammy nominations and music of monolithic power. The March 2006 issue of REVOLVER magazine features a cover story that hails the band as "the ultimate metal super group."

Amazon.com

On paper it looks like a headbanger's dream and in the imagination it sounds like no other band possibly could: Mudvayne's Chad Gray (vocals) and Greg Tribbett (guitar), Nothingface's Tom Maxwell (guitar), and Jerry Montano (bass) join Damageplan/Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul for a good ol' batch of brawny brewtality. On record, Hellyeah sounds like your run-of-the-mill post nü metal band as it serves up a batch of southern-inflected tunes that rock hard but unconvincingly over the course of the album's 44 minutes. A thoroughly bad album would inspire the listener to pipe up with a resounding "hell no," but instead, Hellyeah's mediocre debut forces one to issue a whimpering, lukewarm "well, maybe," a far more troubling sign.

The opening, titular track slams the listener's eardrums with precision guitar figures from Maxwell and Tribbett and some career-defining pummeling from Paul. Even Gray fires on all cylinders for the bulk of the tune's three-and-a-half minutes. But the record quickly sinks beneath the weight of Gray's unsophisticated and often sophomoric lyrics. His attack on critics, "Waging War," is little more than a profanity-laden temper tantrum that's as cliché as it is petulant; "Alchohaulin' Ass," a would-be southern rock anthem, fails to live up to the minimal promise of its title and instead of turning into triumph of the spirit and celebration of the party life serves to remind us that the bottle is far more capable of drowning creative impulses than it is drowning one's sorrows; "Thank You," alternately an ode to the departed and a way of making good with the living, confuses the numbing effects of drugs and drink with the powerful connectivity of intimacy and thus fails in its attempts at suggesting we all get a little closer. Others, such as "Nausea," "One Thing," and "Star" feature lyrics so poorly developed and derivative that it's hardly worth commenting on them.

Well worth avoiding.

Ok i tried posting a review and it got erased so i'm gonna have to word this differently. This band is awesome,it is a "supergroup" of sorts consisting of Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul,Mudvayne's Chad Gray on vocals with Greg Tribbett on guitar & Nothingface's Tom Maxwell and Jerry Montano. The album is a heavy piece of metal and it,in my opinion is their best album. The drums are wicked heavy,double bass kicks and sonic assault of the skins. Two heavy guitars going back & forth creating some sick riffs and amazing solos,the album has nice heavy bass. Nice audible chunky bass. Now to the songs(i can't name em or my review will get erased) track #1 is just so wicked & fast-paced it is a great intro to a wicked album with heavy guitar riffs and sonic drums. Track 2 You Wouldn't Know starts off slow then unloads the heaviness and does not let up. Track 3 Matter of Time is a great heavy bass thick song with stop-start guitars and drums. Track 4 Waging War is awesome,super fast vocals and super fast guitar&drums. Track 5 Alcohaulin' is a kinda radio ballad but it is smooth and heavy. Track 6 is heavy it picks the album right back up with wicked drums & bass. The screams are wicked,Chad's vocals are excellent on this album. Track 7 In the Mood is mellow but still great,a nice instrumental. Track 8 is Star which is another mellow-ish song with excellent guitar and vocals. Track 9 Rotten to the Core is another fast paced break-neck drum and bass song. Track 10 Thank You is the best song on the album,it is so personal and speaks about the loss of family membets and the loss of Dime. Track 11 Nausea is another super fast song with intense drumming and guitars. The final track 12 is One Thing which is a perfect closer,and if you get the special edition with the bonus track Alcohaulin' acoustic.Read more ›

When I first read about this team up the first thing I said was HellYeah!!!! So glad Vinnie Paul got behind the drum set again. And so glad it was with these guys. Been a huge Mudvanye fan for a while so this was awesome! And the other guys big fan of Nothingface and the deadlights. But the rockstar in the band is Vinnie Paul. Pantera is one of my favorite bands of all time their just a legendary metal band. And I really liked the damage plan stuff too. Well the album is what you expect it all sounds like all their bands throw together but in a good way with a little bit of surprises. The album reminds me of pant era and mudvanye mixed with a sort of southern metal or sort of a Black Label Society vibe. You can tell the band is more relaxed and just having fun with guitar solos throw in and mixed with some of a kinda country or southern vibe. Vey cool metal album. Especially if you in for a night of drinking, having fun, playing cards, or hanging out at a ruff biker bar then throw this album on and rock out!!!!

Got this CD the week it came out and had to go to Jerkit Siti to find it because Best Buy was out and I couldn't wait for Amazon delivery (I had to have it right then!!!).

Love the 1st track. Really like the 2nd track. Like the 3rd track. The rest of the album is for playing while I'm driving or otherwise preoccupied, much like I treat most other music (like a soundtrack for life so to speak, the background noise and NOT in the foreground). Most CD's I get have 2-3 songs that I really like and as for the others, eh, I've got 'em if I want to hear 'em. My guess is that most people are the same way and the only people who expect to love the entire album are under the control of some pink starfish with a magic radio somewhere that tells you what to say and do (ahem, Patrick cut that crap out).

It seems as though many people writing reviews here want to have the perfect album with all the tracks being potential favorites. Well; that's not how it works.

Artists are remembered for their shining moments (ie Back in Black, Paranoid, Led Zep IV, Metallica's Black Album, Blizzard of Oz, etc). Everything an artist does is not going to be the greatest thing ever put into whatever artistic media they choose. Da Vinci wasn't known for everything he did, only a few of his projects. Elvis didn't become "The King" 1st time around. "The Fab Four" didn't emerge until the Beatles were well into their career. Stephen King writes great stories and writes some real stinkers as well. So give these other guys a break!!!

No this isn't the greatest album ever and I didn't expect it to be. But seeing Vinnie Paul go through the crap of actually going to the studio and record an album is a BIG, BIG accomplishment.

Five crazy guys come together just to rock us. They impressed me by their style and meaningful lyrics. At least give them a try if you like Pantera (Vinnie), Mudvayne and those types of bands you will be pleasantly surprised.

I am not generally a huge fan of super groups, but I remember when this band was announced, I was just so happy that Vinnie was back in music and was still holding out that there would be some continuity to Pantera. I was also becoming a huge Mudvayne fan. i wasn't sure what could go wrong. I am not so sure that this album is the realization of any of those hopes for the band, but that doesn't mean that it is a bad album. All of the band of members claim that they didn't want to sound like their previous bands and that they made a new sound for the purpose of the band and wanted to make something new. i am not sure how accurate that is, but I will say that it is the hardest album in their catalog. Sure there are plenty of cookie cutter type of guitar riffs and song structures, but the band doesn't really seem to be striving for much more than that. This is basic by the book metal, but with a lot of attitude. The singles Hell Yeah and You Wouldn't Know are the most cookie cutter of the lot, but Matter of Time and GodDamn both show Vinnie and co at their best. There are also two slower songs worth mentioning, Alcoholin' Ass and Thank You. Both are among the better songs on the album. Subsequent albums tried to be harder or more Pantera like, but if you are only going to buy one album, this is the best and where you should start. Just don't get your hopes up too high as it doesn't even begin to touch the heights of Pantera or Mudvayne. It also is a little sad that all members seem reluctant to rejoin their previous band, with Mudvayne seemingly on an endless hiatus, and Vinnie squashing all rumors of a Patnera reunion. I have to say that while I love Vinnie and Chad, Greg and Bob really are generic string men, and the low tuned southern guitars seems more like schtick than innovation. My advice would be to download the songs that are worth the money to you and skip the rest.
