In addition to Vinnie Paul, HELLYEAH features NOTHINGFACE members Jerry Montano (bass) and Tom Maxwell (guitar) alongside MUDVAYNE's Chad Gray (vocals) and Gregg Tribbett (guitar). Abbott recently told MTV.com that HELLYEAH's self-titled debut, which drops April 10, is "the best record I've been a part of since [PANTERA's 1992 classic] 'Vulgar Display of Power'." He said, "The thing that makes me feel that way about it is, when we made 'Vulgar', it was just magic. It happened. Everybody's mindset was in the right place. After that record, we never had that same vibe. We still made amazing records, but there were all these forces pulling us in different directions. So when we made [the HELLYEAH] record, I had that same kind of feeling. It was just too easy. Everybody was into it. And I feel these songs are that strong, and I think everybody brought something special to the table.
"It's just a special record," he added, "and I really believe we're gonna be f---ing kick-ass live. We haven't done any live shows yet, but I know that everybody comes from a band that's been known as a kick-ass live band. So I know the five of us together are going to make some hellacious noise."
