Today (September 27th), hard-rock and metal supergroup HELLYEAH released their highly anticipated sixth studio album, Welcome Home, which features the final studio recordings of founding drummer and Pantera legend Vinnie Paul, who passed away just over a year ago. In celebration of the new LP and tribute to their fallen brother and bandmate, Hellyeah also issued today the new music video for heartfelt acoustic ballad “Skyy and Water.” The reverential clip, filmed by Wombat Fire, highlights notable moments from the past.
“I think Vince would be proud of what we’ve done,” guitarist Tom Maxwell commented of Welcome Home. “Chad [Gray, singer] really nailed it, vocally and lyrically. We went out of the box a bit on this album. Left the studio a few times a little uncertain, but we tried new stuff, and we’re eager to see what people think of it.” Gray added, “We have to keep flying [Vinnie’s] flag, to carry on legacies, and to carry on what heavy metal truly represents — and that is loyalty, that is love, and that is trust.”
