Heavy metal "supergroup" Hellyeah formed in 2006 in Dallas, TX, around the talents of Mudvayne's Chad Gray (vocals) and Greg Tribbett
(guitar), Nothingface's Tom Maxwell (guitar) and Jerry Montano -- the latter also played with Danzig -- and Pantera/Damageplan drummer
Vinnie Paul Abbott. The group's debut self-titled debut was released in April 2007 on Epic Records. Shortly after the album was released,
Montano left the band and was replaced by Damageplan bassist Bob Zilla. With a new bassist in place, the band began to work on new material,
and in 2010 released their sophomore album, Stampede.
