Editorial Reviews

Pantera reached a major milestone in 1994 when the legendary metal band s seventh studio album, Far Beyond Driven, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, becoming the fastest-selling album of the group s career and its second consecutive platinum release. Not only a commercial success, the album also earned positive reviews around the world for the beautiful brutality of its all-out sonic assault.

2014 marks the 20th anniversary of that landmark album and Rhino celebrates with a special two-disc version that includes a remastered version of the album, along with a live performance from the 1994 Monsters of Rock Festival.

Following the breakthrough success of 1992 s Vulgar Display of Power which has since been certified double platinum singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist Dimebag Darrell, bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul returned in March 1994 with Far Beyond Driven. Following its #1 debut, Far Beyond Driven remained on the Billboard album chart for seven more months and many still regard it as the heaviest album to ever top the chart.

Its 12 tracks represented a continuation of the previous album s relentless musical onslaught with hard-hitting tracks like the first single "I m Broken" as well as the mosh-pit classics "5 Minutes Alone" and "Slaughtered." Another standout track was the group s swirling acoustic cover of Black Sabbath s "Planet Caravan," which became a live favorite when Pantera hit the road to support the album later that year.

Fans already familiar with Far Beyond Driven are in for a treat with the second disc of the 20th Anniversary Edition. Dubbed Far Beyond Bootleg - Live From Donington '94, the disc contains Pantera full live set recorded at the Monsters of Rock Festival in Donington, England on June 4, 1994. The 40-minute show comprises nine tracks taken from the band s three most recent albums including: "Use My Third Arm" and "Strength Beyond Strength" from Far Beyond Driven, "Walk," "Mouth For War," and "This Love" off of Vulgar Display of Power, plus the title track from Cowboys from Hell as well as the live staple melding "Domination" and "Hollow."

Yeah, as everyone knows, Dimebag Darrell's life was taken abruptly last night by some crazy fan that blamed him for breaking up Pantera (or so I've read). Damageplan were just warming up when this gunman leaped up on stage and took Darrell's life (and the lives of several other fans). Right now, I am at a loss of words for what I've just heard this morning.

"Dimebag" Darrell Abbott was truly one of the greatest guitarists the metal world has ever seen and heard. He pulled off riffs like no other guitarist I've heard. And it was this album that truly made me a metal fan.

Sure, Slipknot got me into "nu" metal, but it was Pantera's "Far Beyond Driven" that opened my eyes to a better view of heavy metal. I still remember when I first listened to this album. I heard it back in my freshman years of high school. And, yeah, Slipknot were my favorite... but not until a friend loaned me a copy of this album. I put it in my CD player... and I was just in complete awe. "Strength Beyond Strength" was the harshest song I've heard (at the time). The music was loud and the band played at a fast pace. The lyric "F*** you and your college dream! Fact is we're stronger than all!" really stuck into my head. Phil sings angrily about certain economical issues like drugs. And Dimebag comes in with an eerie guitar sound. "Hail! King! The new... king! Stronger than all!" Phil immediately growls when Dimebag finishes his haunting solo. Yes... hail Pantera. Hearing that line immediately made me a newcoming fan of Pantera.

Just hearing that first track catipulted me into the real heavy metal world. No nu-metal like Slipknot. The absolute harshness and darkness that heavy metal is.

After all the acclaim and respect Pantera received from its sophomore effort, Vulgar Display of Power, it was going to be very difficult for the band to follow up with an album of similar magnitude. No problem. Its excellent production (Terry Date) and its punishing song lineup gave Far Beyond Driven a sound all its own.

It packs a furious punch right from its starting track, "Strength Beyond Strength". The record rumbles on, through "Becoming", "Five Minutes Alone", and "I'm Broken"; heavy anthems which all would later be considered some of Pantera's greatest hits. The only real break from the relentlessness is on "Good Friends and a Bottle of Pills", a mysterious and haunting interlude that has Phil and a piercing shrill chorus echoing a drug-induced theme. The next four tracks pick the intensity right back up. "Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks" contains one of the more enticing guitar solos (not that any others aren't), "Slaughtered" is just downright heavy, "25 years" contains a scorching ending (Phil screams "we're F------ you back" in a ruthless way). "Shedding Skin" has a choppy, catchy main riff and powerful chorus, while "Use my Third Arm" may be the fastest moving song on the entire CD. "Throes of Rejection" once again pounds the listener from the onslaught, through Phil's powerful intro "This is feeding what I am!!!" Planet Caravan winds out the CD in perfect fashion. Phil's clean vocals are something the listener hasn't heard much of through the course of the album, and they sound excellent.

For an album to stand the test of time, two critical things are needed: good production and great musicianship. It's safe to say that (Pantera's third album) "Far Beyond Driven" has both of these things, because, over a decade after its release, it's as great as it ever was.

First, the production: I've never had a problem with the production on any of Pantera's albums (except for maybe their 1980's hair metal albums), and "Far Beyond Driven" is no exception. Production can be a bit tricky sometimes; some good metal albums have suffered from a bad production. For instance, take Megadeth's "So Far, So Good..." album: Megadeth did a great job, musically, (and the album sounded fine in the `80's) but, over the years, it has become more and more stale sounding. Terry Date, Pantera's typical lead producer, does a strong, robust job, here. The result is a batch of songs that are extra crunchy and have a harder edge on them.

Next, the musicianship is, as always, top notch. More pummeling drums, puke stained vocals, and propulsive bass lines. But it's the guitars that, once again, dominate the maelstrom. When you hear the sludgy guitars on "Far Beyond Driven" bob, crunch, grind, start, stop, beep, pound, shriek, thump, groove, ascend, descend, downshift, cascade, soar, run, surge, shake, rattle, and steam roll (and about everything in between), you know it's just another day at the office for Dimebag Darrell.

"Strength Beyond Strength" has rushing iron riffs, a thumping beat, and good drumming (especially in the beginning). The mid-section is slower, but after that, things pick up where they left off. The middle of this song also has a riff that goes up and down, like it's running over hills.

I was thinking the same thing about "The Badge". Should have been included.
