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.

Does the world really need another new "supergroup?" Well, the fact of the matter is your opinion is actually irrelevant, because the music industry thinks we can never have too many of them. So here we go yet again! This one is called Hellyeah, and consists of two members of Mudvayne (vocalist Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett), Nothingface's Jerry Montano on bass, and drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who used to play in a little band from the Nineties called Pantera. No matter how tired you may be of "supergroups," after considering the stature of the musicians involved in this project, there's no denying that this band definitely has a boatload of potential.

It sounds like the members of Hellyeah had an extremely good time making their eponymous debut. Throughout these twelve songs, the listener constantly gets the impression that these were five guys who wanted to take time away from their day jobs by getting together and just have a great time rockin' out without any rules, obligations, or cares in the world!

Unfortunately, much of the time it seems like everybody was having so much fun jamming with one another that nobody remembered to write a lot of the songs. This album is a really mixed bag of material. Several of the tunes -- including "Matter of Time," "Waging War," "Rotten to the Core" (which features an almost "Dimebag" Darrell-worthy solo), and "Nausea" -- rock really hard and powerfully, but ultimately go absolutely nowhere and don't leave much of an impression on the listener. And elsewhere, "Star" and the obligatory ballad "Thank You" come across as fillers which are dragged down by cliche, and sometimes even laughably bad lyrics.

If I heard this CD without knowing who it was, I would say it sounds like a cross between Mudvayne and Pantera. I disagree with people who think its different from either band as both the Mudvayne and Pantera styles are obvious. I have yet to listen to nothing face so I won't make reference to their style.

The CD is mostly fast paced with a couple slower songs. Even the slower songs are good but have a different mood than the rest of the CD. The band is appropriately named because the song HELLYEAH is by far one of the best songs made.

Don't buy this CD if you're expecting Pantera or Mudvayne. Buy this CD if you can appreciate both styles blended perfectly into 11 songs (not counting in the mood).

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.

PREDICTION: Every single person who hates Hellyeah will use a play on words to mess up their name (i.e., Hellno). Huge fans will cuss a lot whilst describing how "f*cking badda*s" they are. I think I'm gonna end up being right on this one too.

I like every member of Hellyeah to a certain degree, Vinnie Paul and Chad Grey are the two that piqued my interest the most however. Chad has a great voice in my opinion, whether he's screaming or singing, he uses his voice tastefully most of the time. As good as he is though, Hellyeah plays as more of Mudvayne throw-aways (except with a lot better drumming). Three songs, Alcohaulin' Ass, Star, and Thank You are the only departures from the Mudvayne-esque riffage the rest of the CD sports. I like Mudvayne a lot, I don't care about other people's opinions on them, but I was hoping for a lot more with Chad being paired with some highly influential musicians.

Hellyeah is a great opening track with a huge, sing-along chorus that I ask you not to be singing to yourself after you hear it. You Wouldn't Know and Waging War are the first signs of weakness. The vocals aren't great, the lyrics aren't great, and even the music is lacking. Matter Of Time rebounds nicely with a reminder as to why Vinnie Paul is so highly regarded. Alcohaulin' Ass is the first huge departure for Chad and he proves himself tenfold. Defintely reminescent of days gone by. Goddamn is extremely cheesey but is catchy enough to warrant a few listens thanks to the chorus. In The Mood, the only instrumental track featured, is a perfect lead-in to one of the CDs best tracks, Star. Star is just one of those all-around great songs. Thank You has all the potential in the world to be overly corny and unwanted but ends up being another standout.

Does CD art matter that much. I mean yes anybody could have done better, but that is what hellyeah is about. Party and rock and roll. Some of the best albums have the crappest covers.
