Blood For Blood is the forth album from Hellyeah, the post Pantera project of Vinnie Paul, and to my ears the best so far. The new Hellyeah album is much more focused and concise than the previous three records. The metallic assault of ‘Sangre Por Sangre (Blood For Blood)’, ‘Demons In The Dirt’ and ‘Say When’ really manage to bring the message home. Those songs come pretty close in intensity to Pantera songs like Strength Beyond Strength and The Great Southern Trendkill whilst having enough melody to make them commercial enough for the passing listener to get hooked on. With Moth, Hush and Black December adding even more melodic moments truly making Blood For Blood the most balanced and complete album from Hellyeah so far.

Rating - 9/10
