Vinnie Paul Gets Why Pantera Wouldn’t Like HellYeah

Vinnie Paul

Might that have anything to do with the fact that HellYeah’s the worst thing to happen to music file sharing?

Vinnie Paul — a man I love and respect, but whose new band I can’t support because its the audio equivalent of a lynching — tells Loudwire that “some Pantera fans are on the fence and I understand that. Pantera is a marquee band, with the most diehard fans. We sold over 20 million records without MTV or radio. For some people, that’s the only band they’ll do.

“But then again, a whole lot of them understand this and have followed HellYeah and have been in line with us. HellYeah have great fans. We’re a beer-drinking, hell-raising band that kicks ass live. I love both the records. It’s a good release, to play songs that are not full throttle 24-7. But this new one is a great combo of what we previously did, with more metal.”

The forthcoming album from HellYeah was recorded at Vinnie Paul’s home in Arlington, Texas, where he has a studio set up, and was mixed by Jeremy Parker.

Songtitles set to appear on the effort include “Call It Like I See It,” “War In Me” and “Drink, Drank, Drunk.”

Count. Me. Out.
