Hellyeah's 'Blood for Blood' Album Artwork Unveiled

Ultimate Guitar

Hellyeah's fourth studio album, "Blood for Blood," which will be released on June 10 via Eleven Seven Music, now has a cover art, Blabbermouth reports. Take a look at it below.

The CD was helmed by producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment) at his the Hideout Recording Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada. On the cover artwork for "Blood for Blood," Hellyeah vocalist Chad Gray collaborated with renowned tattoo artist Paul Booth, who has been tattooing for over twenty years, and in that time he has worked on many celebrities and rock bands, including Slayer, Slipknot, Sepultura, Soulfly and Lamb of God.

"The last project that Chad and I worked on together was the Mudvayne blacklight design," says Paul. "I had such a great time working on that art, when Chad called on me to design Hellyeah's 'Blood for Blood,' I jumped right into it as I knew it, too, would likely be a fun one. Chad always gives me the freedom to explore and interpret his ideas. It always makes for great collaboration. I look forward to seeing it all in print!

"It's a defining record for Hellyeah and for anyone on the fence," the band founding drummer Vinnie Paul declared, describing the record as "focused and with a clear direction."

In the other news, Hellyeah has finished filming a video for the song "Sangre Por Sangre (Blood for Blood)" with director Robert Sexton in Hollywood, California. The track is the first single from the record.

    Is it just me, or does all the text on the album cover look like it came out of a 7th grade Wordart project?
    Yeah, and the music sounds like it comes out of a 7th grade music class.
    It looks like they went with the first idea that popped in their head . . . also a bucket of red paint
    Chad... I want MUDVAYNE!!! Chad... W E want M U D V A Y N E ! ! ! !
    They'll never release another album like LD50, I've resigned myself to that fact
    Bring back Mudvayne with those crazy bass lines and tempo changes. Im tired of this shit.
    On a different note, I fu*king LOVE "Cross to Bier"... it has so much fu*king balls!!!
    Fuck all these nobody haters, hellyeah kicks ****ing ass. All these trendy guitar nobodies talking shh when they'll never have half the success of hell ****kn yeah
    Cover looks shitty... still gonna buy it though. You just know what you get with Hellyeah. Loud, hard, in your face metal with enough madness and alcohol references to make just about anybody happy.
    Whoever does their album artwork should be fired. This and the last one looked rushed. I mean they look like something from the inside of the booklet got on the front.
    I'm not a big fan of any of the related bands to Hellyeah, except Pantera. So the only reason I keep giving them a "fair" chance is because of the amazing drumming. But, this stuff sounds okay, which doesn't mean I'll actually listen to it ever again.
    "Blood for blood, sangre por sangre" Are you ****ing kidding me? Me estan cargando -.-?
    Oh come on, this band is supposed to be what all bands are supposed to be about. That is making music you're proud of that you feel. This band started HELLYEAH because their previous bands had a certain sound they had to uphold.. That was Hard Hitting Metal, groove and angry music only with very few ballads that had to be changed to be angry instead of sad. This band was to say "We have our successful bands and all, but this is the music we WANT to do, this is how WE want it to sound. We don't care so much as many people buy it as we care about how we enjoy the sound" You do realize they weren't intending Hellyeah's debut to sell so well, they did it to make an album they had fun with and it turns out they can do it and be lucrative in the long run. All you saying "Bring back MUDVAYNE" I say Step Off, if Chad wants to make another Mudvayne album he'll make one. if you rush them it'll sound like half as*ed garbage because they don't want to do that right now.
    Pure shit. Just another try hard band that uses generic song titles, topics, lyrics, and artwork.
    You all need to get outa the fact that all these guys were in other bands and listen to the music. I loved HELLYEAH from day one
