Hellyeah Band Photo 2015

Hellyeah, the band featuring former members of Mudvayne and Pantera, has just released the official video for their new single “Hush” and it features the acting debut of none other than my own 12-year-old son Jesse Bergen. That’s right… that is my gorgeous boy playing a teenage version of Hellyeah singer Chad Gray in the video.

“Hush” is a song about the domestic violence that Gray faced at home as a child and features the chorus “Hell’s where I was born/Hell’s where I was raised/This hell is where I’m from/And this hell is where I’ll stay.” The band has lent use of the song to the No More organization, which works to raise awareness about sexual assault and domestic abuse.

The official video for “Hush” addresses the issue of domestic violence through flashbacks to Gray’s younger years and the scenes that played out around his own situation. It’s pretty heavy stuff! Check it out here below.

Dimebag Darrell Abbott R.I.P.

No surprise here: One of the coolest dudes that ever lived had one of the coolest houses and a killer home studio. Ten years after the senseless murder of Pantera and Damageplan guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, Guitar World is giving fans a glimpse inside his house and home recording studio.

The grounds are like a time capsule, appearing not to have been touched since Dime last walked out of the place. Highlights of the video include a tour of the guitar vault and a look at the original styrofoam cutout that the man himself made for the prototype shape of his signature Dean guitars. We even get a look inside the home’s Slayer-themed “Slaytanic Shitter” bathroom.

It’s a rare glimpse inside the private world of one of metal’s most revered legends and a must-see for any fan. Check it out here below.

Dimebag Darrell Abbott R.I.P.

Pantera was indisputably the most massive metal band of the ’90s, carrying the torch of metal through the grunge years and carving out a sound that was all their own. Today, on the 10th anniversary of the senseless murder of guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott at the hands of a deranged fan, we salute the force of nature that was Pantera and remember a fallen brother. Forget your tears and moments of silence, today we throw back a drink and crank this shit up, because that’s the way that Dime would’ve wanted it.

Check out the first single from Pantera’s final studio album, Reinventing The Steel. This is “Revolution Is My Name.”

Pantera Far Beyond Driven

A two-disc 20th Anniversary Edition of Pantera‘s Far Beyond Driven will be released by Rhino on March 25, 2014, and is available for pre-order now.

The album, which was the band’s seventh studio offering, debuted in 1994 at #1 on the Billboard chart — an amazing feat for a metal record — and then stayed on the chart for seven more months. Following in the crushing aural assault of their previous record, 1992’s Vulgar Display of Power, Far Beyond Driven contains the standout tracks “I’m Broken,” “5 Minutes Alone,” “Strength Beyond Strength,” “Becoming,” and a cover of Black Sabbath’s Planet Caravan all performed by singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist Dimebag Darrell, bassist Rex Brown, and drummer Vinnie Paul.

Metal Masters 5 Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Testament, Pantera Members

The Metal Masters clinic held their annual concert on January 22, 2014 at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, CA, where members of metal giants like Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Testament, Pantera, and more shared the stage to play songs together from their respective back catalogs.

Pro-shot footage of the 3-hour headbanging event, Metal Masters 5, is now online and you can watch it here below.

Some of the songs played were Iron Maiden and KISS covers, but most were from the aforementioned bands, like Slayer’s “South Of Heaven” and “Raining Blood” and Pantera’s “I’m Broken,” “Strength Beyond Strength,” and “Mouth For War.” And the all-star jam finale? Pantera’s “Fucking Hostile,” sung by frontman Phil Anselmo and Testament’s Chuck Billy; a nice touch was seeing bass titan Billy Sheehan playing along on this one, and on Slayer’s “Mandatory Suicide” WITH the guys from Slayer. Too awesome.

Pantera - The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys' Vulgar Hits!

This month Pantera’s The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys’ Vulgar Hits! is available as part of Amazon’s mammoth 1000 MP3s for $5 each deal.

It’s hard to overstate Pantera’s influence on the heavy metal landscape. Phil Anselmo’s harsh, aggressive vocals bouncing on Dimebag Darrell’s razor-sharp guitar licks all riding on bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul’s impossibly heavy groove gave metal a much needed kick up the you-know-what. They originally began as a glam metal band (good luck finding those first four albums), but it was their work of the late ‘80s and early ‘90s that warrants your attention on The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys’ Vulgar Hits! including tracks such as “Cowboys From Hell,” “Mouth For War,” “5 Minutes Alone,” and “Revolution Is My Name.”

Browse all 1,000 albums on sale this month for only $5 each, as well as several albums on sale this week for only $2.99 each.

Former Pantera and Damageplan guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell died 7 years ago today. His murder was a story which shocked the whole rock and metal music world.

Born Darrell Abbott on August 20, 1966 in Ennis, Texas, he formed the heavy metal band Pantera with his brother Vinnie Paul on drums in 1981. Finally settling on a line up encompassing lead singer Phil Anselmo and bass player Rex Brown, Pantera began as a glam metal band before changing their plan of attack with their seminal heavy metal album Cowboys From Hell in 1991.

Judas Priest Ram Down ‘American Idol’

Judas Priest

I despise American Idol. It goes against every fiber of belief I have in music. The Simon Cowell Cookie Cutter Factory of creating “stars” really gets on my last nerve. Despite my negativity towards the-show-that-distracts-millions, I can’t help but write about it at the moment, because metal gods Judas Priest made a guest appearance on the series finale the other night – and blew the whole show out of the water with a great performance, which you can view at the bottom of this post.

My hatred for American Idol aside, you have to admit that this is a good move for Priest in the publicity department. As reported here numerous times, the band are about to embark on their farewell tour, and making an impressive appearance on a show like this is a good way to get the word out beyond the regular fan base.
