With rolling bass lines, crunching riffs, powerhouse drums and raging vocals, ‘Bigger God’ is taken from the band’s third album ‘Band Of Brothers’ (Eleven Seven Music), which was released in July 2012 in the US, UK and Europe. Metal Hammer proclaimed, “HELLYEAH have finally morphed into the destructive beast they’ve always threatened to be.” ‘Band of Brothers’ debuted as the #4 rock and #15 overall album on iTunes.
Having produced track after track of heavy-hitting, in-your-face, feel good rock and roll on their previous two albums (2010’s STAMPEDE and 2007’s self-titled debut), ‘Band of Brothers’ sees HELLYEAH taking a slightly different musical direction. Drawing on their former bands’ collective metal roots for inspiration, the influences and style of Mudvayne, Pantera, Damageplan and Nothingface are immediately recognizable throughout the album.
The band recently toured the US in 2013 with co-headliners All That Remains and support from Nonpoint. Following those shows, HELLYEAH will embark on a European run of shows with bands including Korn, P.O.D and others.
