Hellyeah -- the supergroup featuring Vinnie Paul, Mudvayne's Chad Gray and Greg Tribbett, Nothingface's Tom Maxwell and Bob "Zilla" Kakaha from Damageplan -- have announced a June release for their upcoming third studio album, Band of Brothers.
In the video below, we check out the new Dimebag Concrete Sledge ML guitar. Actually, you'll notice Dimebag's original ML hanging on the wall; that, of course, was the inspiration for the new model. The new version features an exact rendering of the colorful airbrush job on the original guitar. It's got everything but the Kiss sticker!
Kill Devil Hill -- which features drummer Vinny Appice (Black Sabbath, Dio), bassist Rex Brown (Down, Pantera), guitarist Mark Zavon (Ratt, W.A.S.P.) and vocalistJason "Dewey" Bragg (Pissing Razors) -- have officially announced a March 27 release date for their self-titled debut album. You can view the official album art below.
It looks like Down are keeping true to their promise of recording a series of EPs this year instead of a full-length album. The band has indicated that each EP will feature a different style, and according to lead singer Phil Anselmo, the first one will be "a very pure doom metal record."
Dimebag Darrell is busting. The Pantera guitarist has just received confirmation that he and his bandmates will be supporting Black Sabbath on Sabbath's upcoming U.S. tour -- a monster thrill for Dimebag, an admitted Sabbath fanatic. "Opening for those guys is definitely the honor of a lifetime," says the goateed guitarist.
Today marks the seventh anniversary of the day Dimebag Darrell's life was cut tragically short. While Dime may be gone, one thing he most certainly will never be is forgotten. Revolver recently caught up with Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford, who shared some memories of when he first met the guitar legend.
