In anticipation of their new album release, Blood For Blood, HELLYEAH has released two new songs for streaming. Listen to “Cross To Beir (Cradle of Bones)” and “Sangre Por Sangre (Blood or Blood)” here.
I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical about this new Hellyeah album and even these two new tracks. After the news that the band was on a bit of shaky ground after two members had recently left, I figured maybe the dynamic of the band would change, or at least the intensity. After listening, I happily say I was wrong.
The band gets a lot of flack for having members (except Vinnie Paul) that all the sudden became these redneck rockin Cowboys From Hell. If you would have told me I’d see Chad Gray in a band like this 10 years ago, I would have laughed in your face. I don’t know if Hellyeah is just some image created by Chad and Vinny, and I don’t care anymore. I’m a big fan of a lot of their songs, especially these two. Have a listen.
