With the album's #1 Debut on the US Billboard Hard Rock Charts (Top 20 on the overall charts) and the single 'Sangre Por Sangre (Blood For Blood)' hitting the Top 20 at rock radio in the US, Hellyeah has made an impressive showing with their fourth album, Blood For Blood. The release is seeing critical acclaim from all over the world, with notable praise in the UK, Australia, Canada and the USA.
Blood For Blood is a welcome return to form. It leaves a mark, thanks to songs like the angular, vengeful 'DMF', a song birthed by the sort of anger that can't be faked; it will leave you wondering who pissed these guys off. 'Gift' is dirty, rowdy rock with equal parts groove and swagger, but also possessed of the sort of punk rock energy that would make Motorhead fans turns their heads.
Then there is moodier, more contemplative fare like 'Moth' or 'Hush', which connect on an emotional, cellular level, proving that you can be incredibly heavy in ways other than loud and fast. The album sounds like a re-charged Hellyeah, taken up many notches.
