Only a weekend had passed since In Flames released its 12th studio album, Battles, and despite my less-than-enthusiastic review (read here), I was still ecstatic to be seeing the Swedish metal pioneers kick off their U.S. co-headlining tour with Hellyeah at the Fillmore Silver Spring. Since I discovered the band in 2004, its albums have been my go-tos time after time, even as the years have gone by. (more…)

Hellyeah

Hellyeah has announced the June 3 release of UNDEN!ABLE, its fifth full-length album, via Eleven Seven Music. The band gave fans the first taste of the new album six weeks ago with the lead single, “Human,” which is currently number 20 this week on the Mediabase Active Rock radio chart, the number 1 spin gainer and the number 2 most added Active Rock song. Watch the lyric video below.

UNDEN!ABLE marks the first time the current lineup of vocalist Chad Gray, guitarists Tom Maxwell and Christian Brady, drummer Vinnie Paul and bassist Kyle Sanders has recorded together as a unit. It was produced in Las Vegas at the Hideout Recording Studio by Kevin Churko. (more…)

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.
