Review: HELLYEAH – Unden!able

From the moment you put the latest release from HELLYEAH, Unden!able, on – you know you’re in for a ride! This album is solid work from the band. It’s a gritty, machine-churning-sounding, vicious rollercoaster ride the whole way through! Seriously, if you were riding a rollercoaster, you’d want this album as the soundtrack to the ride.

Unden!able has enough angst to perpetuate any bully. It’s almost as though Meshuggah is their backup band.

I have to applaud Chad Gray‘s vocals, they’re tight and fierce! They’re a perfect fit for Unden!able. What makes it perfect is his rap-like delivery. I can already hear him ramping up the crowd with any of these tracks on tour.

The album includes 13 tracks, some are purely musical interlude.

01. “!”
02. “X”
03. “Scratch a Lie”
04. “Be Unden!able”
05. “Human”
06. “Leap of Faith”
07. “Blood Plague”
08. “I Don’t Care Anymore”
09. “Live Or Die”
10. “Love Falls”
11. “10-34″
12. “STARTARIOT”
13. “Grave”

The crown jewel of Unden!able is a Phil Collins cover (“I Don’t Care Anymore”) that includes some previously unreleased guitar work from Dimebag Darrell.

It took three weeks to include Dime’s guitar parts for the song (they were recorded on a computer program from 2004), but this was an endeavor obviously important to Vinnie Paul. He says,

“When Kevin [Churko, producer] got the tracks isolated, he synched them up, and when we listened them it totally gave me goosebumps.

We’ve always felt like he’s been a part of this band since day one. We felt like his energy and his spirit was always with us. And for people to be able to hear him again in 2016 puts a big smile on my face.”

Unden!able is truly a treat! Check it out in stores today!
