Album Review

Bringing together members of Damageplan, Pantera, Nothingface, and Mudvayne, Hellyeah are as close to a groove metal supergroup as the world has seen since Down. Given Hellyeah's pedigree, it comes as no surprise that their second album, Stampede, is an almost nonstop cavalcade of huge, slithering groove riffage. While the album lets a couple of ballads slip through the cracks by way of “Better Man” and “Hell of a Time,” Hellyeah do their best to stick to what they do best, delivering track after track of fist-pumping, down-and-dirty metal in the grand Southern tradition. It’s this simplicity that makes Stampede an ultimately fun record. There are no chin-stroking prog arrangements to puzzle over, knotty guitar acrobatics or deep lyrics to dissect — just pure and simple old-school heavy metal aggression without pretension. Hellyeah’s membership is seasoned enough that they know exactly what they’re doing when they deliver mosh pit anthems like “It’s On!” and “Stampede,” odes to aggression guaranteed to work a crowd into a frenzy of rebellious aggression with their thunderous, detuned guitars and furious drumming (courtesy of former Pantera drummer Vinnie Paul). As long as you know what you’re getting into, Stampede is a great piece of heavy metal escapism that invites the listener to throw on a sleeveless T-shirt, drink a beer or twenty, and simply enjoy the ride.

Customer Reviews

Solid album.

I was one that heavily anticipated the first Hellyeah album and was not disappointed. When I heard they had a second one coming out, I was overjoyed. After about 5 or 6 spins, I decided to give it a review.

It seems very polished and meticulously written and recorded. The thing I really liked about the first album is it sounded like a whole bunch of great musicians getting together, having a whole lot of alcohol and just letting it rip while recording. This album lacks that intensity.

One the plus side, the songs are fun and easy to get into. Any one of these songs could have been interchanged with the first Hellyeah album in terms of sound, but not feel or emotion.

Overall a good, solid album worth buying and worth listening to, just don't expect that raw intensity of the first album to carry over to this one.

Oh hellyeah!

The boys have done it again, only this time better!!

not too bad

Since Mudvayne has been releasing crap since Lost and Found and Nothingface and Pantera are dead and buried this is actually not too bad it has cool grooves, catchy chorus, and dumb-fun lyrics about partying and stuff. This is fun and beats The New Game and Mudvayne's slightly better self-tittled affair.
