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.
