Hellyeah almost sounds like a new band on its fourth album, Blood for Blood, released last summer. The good-time, party songs are gone. The Southern rock overtones are MIA, as well. Finally, the band sounds like what many hoped for from a melding of members of Pantera, Mudvayne and Nothingface. Following the exit of two band members, vocalist Chad Gray, guitarist Tom Maxwell and drummer Vinnie Paul wrote and recorded the album in Las Vegas with producer Kevin Churko. There, they also met Christian Brady, who joined the band on guitar after the completion of recording. (Bassist Kyle Sanders also joined around this time.) When Hellyeah’s recent headlining tour came to Rams Head Live in Baltimore, Maryland, Brady sat down with Live Metal’s Greg Maki to discuss what led to him joining the band, his musical background and more.

Time to look back on another year that was in hard rock and metal. I don’t expect everyone—especially not a lot of very vocal online metal fans—to agree with what you’re about to read, but isn’t that part of what makes this sort of thing so much fun? I veer toward the hard rock side of metal, mostly staying away from the more extreme varieties (I’m sure my brother, Jeff, will cover some of that on his list), and I’m not claiming these are the best albums of 2014, end of discussion. No, these are simply the releases I enjoyed the most and have found myself going back to over and over this year. And oh yeah, rock is not dead. (more…)
