Wish you could “Frankenstein” all of your favorite bands together? Well, that’s just what the bandmates of Hellyeah decided to do. This American heavy metal supergroup draws its members from legendary bands such as Pantera (drummer Vinnie Paul), Damageplan (Vinnie Paul and bassist Bob Zilla), Mudvayne (vocalist Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett), Nothingface (guitarist Tom Maxwell), and Rebel Meets Rebel (Vinnie Paul).
Originating from discussions on the Tattoo the Earth tour in 2001, the formation of the supergroup was delayed due to scheduling conflicts with the original bands. However, the group recorded its first album in 2006, and released their debut, Hellyeah, the following year with Epic Records. The album reached #9 on the Billboard 200 album charts with sales of just under 45,000 copies. Their 2010 album, Stampede, was similarly received, reaching #8 on the Billboard 200.
The group recently released their third album, Band of Brothers, and working through their short but intense tour through the US and Canada. Want Hellyeah to visit your home city? Make sure to demand them and let them know where to visit next time around.
