The band is Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett, Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell, Damageplan bassist Bob Zilla, and former Pantera, Rebel Meets Rebel and Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul. They formed in 2001, but as you can imagine, juggling so many bands and schedules put many tour plans on hold till 2006, when the band finally recorded its first, self-titled album, recorded at Chasin’ Jason studio in Dimebag Darrell‘s backyard.
I confess, I have always been an old school metal fan, cutting my teeth on the likes of The Scorpions and Ac/DC, but am still getting up to speed on these new metal bands after being sort of out of the loop for several years. Uproar introduced me to Hellyeah, and this phenomenon called “Cowboy Metal.” And I am digging it…a LOT. This video kicks ass.
