Customer Reviews

This is such a great album from one of metal's best, Pantera.
Lukas Diaz-Ames
"Heresy" is another song in the thrashier vein, with more wild and high-pitched vocals from Phil and fast, chugging riffs, mixed with great drumming.
William Dorfer
Pantera's Debut As a Metal Band Cowboys From Hell is one of the best metal albums of the nineties.

Like all instruments, playing the guitar is an art form. It takes a lot of time and patience to understand and learn. Many try, but few succeed. Those who do succeed have either learned from someone else, or they are simply born with "God-given talent." "Dimebag" or "Diamond" (as he was known then) Darrell Abbott definitely mastered his art due to both of these.

Diamond Darrell and his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul formed a band while they were still in high school. These cowboys from Hell (or Texas, as they'd lead you to believe) were a cover band before anything else; until the early 1980's, when the Abbott brother's dad convinced them to start writing their own music. They formed a band, Pantera, that released their first album when Diamond was only 17. They continued releasing "hair/glam" metal albums until 1990.

"Cowboys from Hell" is the group's major label debut (as well as their second album with vocalist Phil Anselmo and the last album before "Diamond" Darrell changed his nickname to "Dimebag.") Starting with this album, Pantera turbo-charged their sound, making their metal ten times heavier. Some believe they aborted their original sound (in favor of a more vengeful one), because they were signed to a major label. Others believe they did it because the `90's were a new era and hair metal was no longer popular. I, however, only partially believe both of these theses. I think Pantera aborted their `80's style of music because of the influence Diamond/Dimebag Darrell had on the band. In the early days, Dime was influenced by such artists as Ace Frehley of Kiss (thus explaining Pantera's hair metal sound), Eddie Van Halen, and Randy Rhodes.

Cowboys From Hell(1990). Pantera's breakthrough album (though not the official debut because they had several glam albums in the 80s that the band completely disregards).

Back in the 1980s, Pantera was a completely unknown and different band than the one we know now. They started off as a glam metal act along the likes of Poison and Motley Crue, and released four albums which earned them no success and are now out of print. At the time, only drummer Vinnie Paul, bassist Rex Rocker, and guitarist Diamond "Dimebag" Darrel were in the band. It wasn't until their fourth album that current vocalist Phil Anselmo joined. After making the four glam metal albums without gaining any sort of fame, Pantera decided to pull all the stops and make a complete 180 degree turn on the band's sound and image. Gone were the happy songs about partying and the big hair, and in came the dirty, heavy thrash mayhem that measures up to the likes of older Metallica and Testament. And in 1990, the band pressed forth with their fifth album, Cowboys From Hell and never looked back. This ended up being their riskiest yet smartest move and Pantera instantly met with great success. The band now regards CFH as their first album and refuses to admit that they were once a fully-fledged hair metal band. I've even heard of cases where fans would bring that subject to their attention and the band would attack their fans for even mentioning their past! Yikes.

Nevertheless, CFH is an astounding thrash metal assault and as it stands, a masterpiece. I first picked it up last year when I had the choice of purchasing either this album and Testament's New Order or the then-new St. Anger album by Metallica. Needless to say, I'm EXTREMELY glad I went with the former choice.

I feel this is the only way to pay my deepest respects to Dimebag Darrell, a truly amazing one-of-a-kind guitarist who's spirit and soul will ALWAYS be with us and in the Pantera records. Every second of this album has never sounded more essential to me and the rest of the Pantera fans whom are also shocked by the foul way Dimebag was murdered just five days ago.

Just listen to the beginning riff on the album-titled track 'Cowboys from Hell' which catapulted the band's career. The thrash metal notes on 'Domination', 'Heresy', 'Art of Shredding', & 'Message in Blood' were too a trademark to his work. Or the ballad esque stylings of 'Cemetery Gates' & 'The Sleep'. It's no wonder Dimebag's death has made such a huge impact on the metal world.

Us fans will always remember him, and will too listen to Pantera & Damageplan as long as we live.

I can't even bare to imagine the pain his poor family & friends must be going through. Especially his brother Vinnie.

R.I.P Dimebag Darrell, I believe your spirit is in a much better place.

Goodbye for now...

I just heard that Dimebag was murdered at a Damageplan concert tonight, and I wanted to come and pay my respects. Dimebag was an amazing musician, and a really cool guy. It makes me so sick that stuff like this has to happen. Rest in peace, man. We'll miss you, and we'll never forget you. :(

Could these Texas boys have ever predicted, way back in 1990, what a lasting impact this album would have on the metal scene? So many current guitarists have listed Dimebag Darrell Abbott (RIP) as an influence, and so many other classic metal bands were great friends with Pantera. It's not hard to understand why on this album... from the killer intro title track, to the groove of "Psycho Holiday", to the hard-hitting "Domination", and even the Iron Maiden-ish "Shattered". This album is metal with a capital M.

However, the album's biggest curveball is the beautiful ballad, "Cemetary Gates". Starts off soft and amazing... who knew Pantera could pull it off? Then it gets harder, with an amazing solo, and great, haunting vocals... this is Pantera's "Stairway To Heaven".

Anyway, if you like hard-hitting, fist-in-your-face metal, this one's for you.

However, I also am using this space to pay respect to one of metal's best guitarists ever, Dimebag Darrell. A week later, I still can't believe what happened...

On the morning of December 8, I was walking back to my bedroom for some reason when I overheard on the news about how a tragedy struck at a rock concert. That caught my ear. The newscaster mentioned that it was at a Damageplan concert. I knew that was Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul's new band, so I went back out to hear more. The newscaster said that they killed two and injured three, and one of them was guitarist Dimebag Darrell. Of course, she then went right into some other stuff, not telling what happened to him, as if it didn't matter. I frantically went back to my computer, to go on the internet, hoping like crazy that I would read something saying he was allright, in the hospital and expected to make a full recovery...
