Metal’s semi-supergroup Hellyeah have just conducted a new interview in promtoion of their new album Band of Brothers, due June 5th via Eleven Seven Records.

Commented  singer Chad Gray, “With Band Of Brothers, I just quit being afraid of who I am in relation to this band. I think we’ve all really gotten back to the original roots of what we’ve done individually and brought it together on this album. As an artist, as long as you’re painting with your own brush, no one can compare or challenge you. I just painted with a bigger, heavier brush than I had with Hellyeahin the past. I think this is what fans have always expected to hear from us, and now were giving it to them.”

Obligatory “A” ?: Album Review: Lamb of God – “Resolution”

Posted by NichTheHair on Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 12:28 AM (PST)

Silence, cretins. Only whispers and assumptions preluded this release. No “in the studio video #17.” No album teasers or mysterious live song surfacing. Just *bam, new album. Sans hype, Lamb of God quietly released Resolution. I can respect that. Nothing is worse than when a band gives too much away before the album drops. So with their latest release from Epic, they kept to themselves.

Read on to see if the silence succeeded.
