Tracks that stood out to me...
#2 The Debt That All Men Pay
#6 It's On!
#7 Pole Rider
#8 Cold As Stone
#9 Stand Or Walk Away
Stampede delivers in every way. The songs are harder, faster, and just as diverse. I dont know what the hell more people could want from a metal band, seriously. Theres one song thats slower throughout (better man) but its still a great song - especially compared to all the crap out there today. The rest of the songs will knock you on your ass like not much else can.
#1: Cowboy Way
#3: Order The Sun
#4: Better Man
#5: Stand Or Walk Away
They much improved from the first, nice blend of melodies and guitars. Recommend to anyone who likes this type of metal, just don't expect a Pantera/Mudvayne hybrid. It don't exist, this is a totally distinct band.
That's right, they're back. Since the release of 2007's eponymous debut, the band likely suffered many hangovers but their knack for delivering groove-heavy and slightly formulaic metal has hardly faltered. One listen to "Stampede" indicates that all it took was some hair of the dog to get them back in line following frontman Chad Grey and guitarist Greg Tribett's short-lived reunion with their original band, Mudvayne. Together with drummer Vinnie Paul (ex-Pantera/Damageplan), co-guitarist Tom Maxwell (ex-Nothingface) and bassist Bobzilla (ex-Damageplan), the boozing boys are back to making music that perhaps no one enjoys listening to more than they enjoy making.
It may be their second album, but it may as well be an extension of their first. Grey still spits and screams songs about cowboys that actual cowboys probably wouldn't listen to while the band chugs along at a consistent pace. "Hell of a Time," the penultimate HELLYEAH tune, is a prime example of this. Not much has changed in three years and in that respect, this effort can't help but feel a bit sophomoric and immature. What made for a relatively fun and easy listen the first time around doesn't exactly translate here. Grey's lyrical content seems to be getting sillier and sillier, with the album's title track only serving to further alienate him from the crowd that followed him from his primary gig.Read more ›
I don't really even like "southern-rock" all that much... I've only heard a few bands in my entire life, that sounded decent doing it -- and it's because they were born &/or raised in the South... but I digress...
There were only 3 songs on the 1st album I liked (the 1st three... the 2nd being the best)... and most who bought that album felt similarly. I, unlike most of them, didn't expect a Mudvayne or Pantera album... I expected a Southern-Rock album (a good one)... but it just didn't fly.
I decided to give HellYeah one more shot for a few reasons: 1) Fav guys, as stated earlier __ 2) Read pre-release interviews from Chad saying the writing & so on, went much smoother & came easier, having worked with everyone for the last album (ie, they had a chance to get to know each other & compliment each other, better... at least, that was the intended message -- one I fail to hear in this album -- but again, I digress) ___ and 3) Because I'll give any band (especially one with talented members) a 2nd chance...... unfortunately, this one is even worse than it's predecessor.
(most fans either didn't buy this album, or chose not to write truthful reviews about it, out of loyalty & wishing to see Chad, Vinny & the guys do well in sales... but it's my opinion, that if they want good sales, they should put out good music...Read more ›

|another victim of the loudness war||
Am I the only one that doesn't let this whole "loudness war" thing ruin my listening experience? It seems like there's always "something" wrong with a lot albums. Examples:
Metallica - Death Magnetic
Alice In Chains - Black Gives Way To Blue
Red Hot Chili Peppers -... Read More
