Chad Gray of hard rockers HELLYEAH has spoken his thoughts to fans on the passing of drum legend Vinnie Paul. If you are a fan or anyone in general you should read this as it is heartfelt and full of brotherhood. Condolences to the folks in HELLYEAH who we appreciate a lot around here.

First off I’m sorry to all of you for our loss. It’s consumed me as I’m sure it has many of you. I’m sure you can all understand This has been incredibly hard and impossible for me to wrap my head around. I just don’t want to believe it’s real. I want to tell all my crew I love you guys so much. We couldn’t do what we do with out you. And I want to say thank you to everyone around the world for your kind words, blessings and condolences to all of us through this tragic time. We love you all! And to all of my friends in and out of the music business thank you for reaching out to me. It means more to me then I could ever express. I don’t know what I would do without you. So Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It really has taken “the heavy metal family” to another level. This has been one of the toughest things I’ve ever had to face in my life! I’m so confused, sad and as helpless as I’ve ever been. I’m at a loss and completely devastated. But I’m trying. It’s the equivalent of an emotional riot in my head and In my heart as I write this. But I’m trying to focus on anything good. I know Vinnie would want that. And the good things are my memories of him. His smile, his infectious laugh and his personality that beamed light. Him and his brother Dimebag lived to make people smile. That’s what I’m gonna miss the most. I just want to say thank you Vinnie Paul! For saving my life, for your music, for your endless generosity, for accepting me into your life, for creating our music that touched people, for being proud to be in hellyeah and for always treating me like a brother and more importantly for treating me like a friend. So many times I’ve looked back to see you just bashing away and have to pinch myself. It was Unbelievable! And for all of those things you will live forever in my heart. And I will never let you go!!! I will always love you and go to the end of the earth to carry the torch for you and Dimes legacy. R.I.P Vincent Paul Abbott. I know your with DIMEBAG Right now Smiling down on us. Even in all this emotional darkness, that thought alone makes me smile right back. I LOVE YOU! Your eternal friend, -Chadnesss

Vinnie Paul dead at 54

Posted by longhairedpoet on Friday, June 22, 2018 at 9:50 PM (PST)

News of Vinnie Paul’s death first broke an hour ago on Billboard as of the time I’m writing this. A while later news of his passing was posted on the Pantera Facebook page.

Vinnie Paul was, as the Facebook page makes note of, the drummer of Pantera and Hellyeah. He was also the drummer in Rebel Meets Rebel and Damageplan.

From the time of the release of Pantera’s Metal Magic through till his death, Vinnie Paul had been involved in the heavy metal scene for over 35 years, setting the rhythm from behind his kit that would drive Pantera and Hellyeah to the front of the pack.

You can’t throw a rock in the heavy metal community without finding a fan of the music Vinnie helped make. From shotgun-slinging Cowboys From Hell to those who have a New Found Power, to those who just like to throw up their devil horns and declare Hellyeah! Vinnie Paul has been a prolific contributor to the scene.

Metal Riot contributor Andrew Johann Datoush had this to say about the news:

“I’ve always been a fan of everything Pantera did prior to Cowboys From Hell. That entire era for them was criminally underrated. There was some excellent song writing in those days. Dime had a different guitar style back then, and Vinnie’s drumming back then very clearly showed his love of KISS. There was definitely some Eric Carr influence to his drumming present in those days. While a lot of fans will be playing some of the harder tracks during their tributes tonight, I’ll be sticking with their more melodic era, and playing their tune “We’ll Meet Again” from their Power Metal album. Rest easy Vinnie. Give Heaven a Hell of a soundtrack!”

As I listen to “Matter of Time” and feel a chill run through my body, I don’t have anything more to say. We here at Metal Riot are all deeply saddened by Vinnie Paul’s death. It’s almost 1am here on the east coast of the U.S. and sometimes all you have is to put the metal on and break the fucking knob.

Rest in Peace Vinnie Paul!

Last Mayhem Fest ever?

The homies of Metal Injection are reporting that this is indeed the last Rockstar Energy Mayhem Fest. Read the article HERE.

I am bummed as I have to say media was always treated wonderfully by Mayhem staff and with a lot more regard than some other tours.

“When making this record fell in my lap and I had to write these riffs, I didn’t look at it as a negative. On the other side of it, trying to keep the band together… things were fucking toxic. We almost didn’t make it through. If we kept things the same we would have dissolved. If we broke free of it we had a shot at doing what we needed to do… Our last record was Band Of Brothers and it couldn’t have been further from the fuckin’ truth” – Tom Maxwell

If you thought Hellyeah were cool but they never quite reached the heights of their members former bands, rest easy. The leaner and meaner Hellyeah of 2014 is pretty much the band most of us always wanted them to be. Greg Tribbett and Bobzilla had some good contributions and no offense to those dudes. They surely pleased fans of the Damage Plan and Mudvayne days, but this new version of the group is sooo much more on fire. I can safely say that Blood For Blood, the pending new record from the group, is by far their best album and certain to be the best “mainstream” hard rock release of the year (even if it doesn’t feature a cover of “Revenge on Society”, haha). Anyway, This is what you would hope to hear from members of Pantera, Mudvayne and Nothingface…aggressive riffs, Vinnie Paul hitting the drums so hard the world shakes and Chad Gray at his absolute best whether handling eerie, heart sick melody or rapid fire screams and morbid yet hope-infused banter. While a semblance of the group’s party vibe remains, the lyrics are a lot darker and more real on Blood For Blood. Cleaning house really did the band favors and I am done bitching that Chad should just go back to Mudvayne. The more minimal sound and serious, angry themes here work fucking wonders as Tom Maxwell’s sick ass groove metal riffs and Vinnie Paul’s blatantly more excited drumming audibly shine loud and clear. The band sound excited and ready to fire on all cylinders. Hell yeah!

Look…have any of you ever thought about the fact that Tom must be a pretty fucking cool guy if Vinnie feels comfortable with him as his main guitar honcho after what happened to Dimebag? Anybody out there as big a fan of Nothingface’s Violence as I am? Well, this Hellyeah record is where it all comes together and hopefully marks the start of a great new era for the band. Tom talks to us about new member Kyle Sanders (Bloodsimple, Monstro),Vinnie Paul playing heavier than he has in years, Chad digging really deep vocally, touring with Avenged Sevenfold and much more. Blood For Blood is a celebration of all things metal.Come June y’all better crank this bitch up to 11!

Tom was under the weather at the time of the interview but he manned up. Thanks, dude! For our exclusive interview with Tom click HERE.

Hell Yeah’s Sin City new album news blast!

In news more exciting than my Christian Mingle profile…

…Determined to bring their fans something fresh and new, the members of HELLYEAH have hunkered down in Las Vegas, Nevada with producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment) and are nearing the end of an epic time in the studio.

The band, comprised of rock royalty, Vinnie Paul of Pantera; Chad Gray and Greg Tribbett of Mudvayne, Tom Maxwell of Nothingface and Bobzilla of Damageplan, has been making good-time hard rock music since its debut in 2007.   Adding a new dimension to their work, they brought in producer and collaborator, Churko.  The band’s growth and his contribution promise to make this release unforgettable.

Says Big Vin: “This record is heavy and diverse.  It was an honor working with Kevin Churko… everything we did on this record was from a different perspective.  Kevin really pushed and got the best out of us.  Can’t wait for all the HELLIONS to hear it.”  

Churko: “HELLYEAH has really come into this record with a hunger. They’re putting everything they have into it. They’ve really impressed me both with the tracks they brought in and with their drive to make them even better. I think they’ll really be delivering their best record yet to their fans and they’ll be making new believers out of others. 2014 will be the year of HELLYEAH!.” 

The as-yet-untitled release is due out on Eleven Seven Music on April 28 in the UK and 29 in the US. Now if only they would do a B-side cover of Skrapp Metal’s “Muff Diving In The 80’s”, I’d be super pumped. Chad could give Jeff Scott Soto a run for his $.

Video: Hellyeah talk new album “Band of Brothers”

Posted by jessepac on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 1:59 PM (PST)

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.”
