Toothgrinder has posted a drum video online for the (just shy of) 18 minute track “Vibration/Colour/Frequency,” which can be viewed below. Toothgrinder was created in 2010 by a group of local young kids wanting to hit the music scene with something heavier, broader, and more inventive than had been previously done by each musician in the past. Toothgrinder resides in Asbury Park, NJ and has previously won Best Heavy Rock Band (2010, 2011) and Best Drummer (2011) by the Asbury Park Music Awards.

HellYeah: Fuck Yeah!

Iconic Pantera and HellYeah drummer Vinnie Paul – who won best drummer at this year’s Metal Hammer Golden Gods awards – opens up to Metal Hammer about the new HellYeah album, Pantera and his legendary brother Dimebag in our new issue, out right now and also featuring a Golden Gods special, free CDs, a free Ghost keyring and amazing features with the likes of While She Sleeps, Hell, Slayer, Baroness and more!

In the issue, Vinnie comments on the notion that new HellYeah album Band Of Brothers represents a pivotal moment in his musical rehabilitation since losing his brother, Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell, in December 2004.

“Totally,” he agrees. “I don’t know what to say, man. That was the most horrific loss I’ve ever had in my life and I didn’t know if I was ever going to get back into playing music again. It wasn’t something I was gonna go searching for. But HellYeah fell into my lap. Right away we had great chemistry. This has been the ultimate therapy.”

Where would any self-respecting metal band be without a truly great drummer? And trust us, this year’s winner is a true legend.

And the winner of the Best Drummer award is… Vinnie Paul!

One of the most loved drummers in all of metal itself, Vinnie Paul was the beating heart in a little band called Pantera, and has continued to ply his passion in Damageplan and HellYeah since. Horns up for Vinnie!
