Pantera - Cowboys From Hell


Critics writing about Pantera fall over themselves in search of adjectives to describe the fiercely independent foursome: "Boot kicking" "A Metal massacre" "Crushing" "Searing" - the list goes on and on. Log onto the numerous websites manned by rabid and loyal fans, and you'll find chat rooms filled with their own testaments of faith to the band: ... Read more in Amazon's Pantera Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best hands down May 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I don't know why Amazon only lists this as a Japanese import, cause it's easily available. So this review is for the US standard release, not the picture of the album that is on the cover of this website.

And why is it their best? Even more so than the ultimate classic Vulgar Display of Power? Or the insanity of Far Beyond Driven? The one word is creativity.

Vulgar was litteraly the album that gave the band the torch to carry high as the crowning metal gods. Then their next album Far Beyond was just a little too insane being just a little too crazy and overly distorted. Sake of playing fast and mean cause they could.

Here with Great Southern Trendkill, the band got supper creative, with tinges of falseto singing, country roots swagger, and interesting songwriting and gelling such as in Suicide Note parts 1 and 2. That was almost borderline conceptual.

There is not one single bad song on this album, and in some way they are all unique and different from each other. They all stand out on their own, and have all the hallmarks of classic Pantera: ingenious murderous riffs and solos by Dimebag Darrel, Great vocals by Anselmo, Pounding groove and some good fills by Rex, and intricate drumming from Vinnie that fires like a machine gun.

'Floods' is easily the best solo I ever heard Dimebag do. Drag the Waters has that killer piercing cowbell, and what great lyrics of depravity. 13 steps marching beat, Suicide Note, WOW impressive, I could go on and on.

A must have for any Pantera fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars GRINDING SWAMP POWERED AGGRESION November 18, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this is a truly amazing album,PANTERA combine everything needed in METAL.Powerful melodic chomping guitar chords,slamming stampeding drums and gut-wrenching screams.the great southern trendkill destroys everything in its path.this is an album that is the definition of pure stripped down anger.Phil Anselmos lyrics chanllenge the mind and everyday happenings in the society we live in.the music that Dimebag Darrel,Vinnie paul and Rex churn out ultimately suits Phils disgruntelled world view.Even Seth from infamous u.k noise merchants A.C introduces vocal weaponary in certain songs to enhance the absolute melodic yet unmoving fury of these tracks.great southern trendkill is a soundscape of sonic grinding swamp powered aggresion that is monumental in the respect that it is a definate legend in modern metal albums. review by asher locketz

5.0 out of 5 stars this is one f#cking under rated album May 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD
how this album has only 4/5 star rated is F$CKED UP , when it comes to best pantera albums people alway say cowboys from hell or vulgar display of power and far beyond driven , now those are awesome cds but this album doesnt get merely the cred it should get. this is one heavy album w/ not a single skip able track , the stand out songs are 10s drag threw the waters and one of panteras best songs floods , it's the best song on the cd and phil vocals are perfect but my favorite part of this song is at the end where dime plays this watered down guitar riff its a perfect way to end the song. anyway if you don't already own this cd then get it , I rate it a 10/10

5.0 out of 5 stars We'll miss you Dimebag December 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I heard this morning about what happened to Dimebag, and found myself stifling tears. Its so appalling that someone could be hateful enough to destroy one of the greatest musicians of all time, and then, as if that wasn't enough, turn on the innocent and punish them. I'm actually glad they killed him.

Bob and Mark from the rock station here gave Dimebag a rightful farewell, playing Cemetary Gates in his honor. Then Beavis and Butt-head called in to give their condolences.

As for the album, its no Vulgar Display or Cowboys from Hell, but in no way is it a bad one. The best songs are the title track (great album opener, heavy as hell) The Underground in America (awesome riff, awesome lyrics, awesome solo) and Suicide Note Pt 1 (good acoustic song, the 2nd best ballad they ever did, Cemetary Gates obviously being the best). The only songs I don't really like are Suicide Note Pt 2 (WAY overdone) and Sandblasted Skin (too much distortion, can't hardly hear it).

My prayers go out to Vinnie Paul, the other members of Damage Plan, the Abbott family, and the families of everyone else who was hurt or worse during last night's tragedy. Dimebag, you are, were and will always be remembered as one of the rockinest guitar dudes ever... and you will be sorely missed.

RIP Dimebag Darrell, (...). Your fans love you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Their most brutal ever. October 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
So, Far Beyond Driven was heavy eh? This goes one step further. As Pantera's unstoppable force and anti-pop philosophy demanded they go even heavier, thus losing the majority of their fanbase, Phil Anselmo's extreme behaviour lead to a near fatal heroin overdose. But still, who cares about Pantera history when you can listen to their music?
This is probably their weakest major label CD. Tracks like 13 Steps To Nowhere and Living Through Me (Hell's Wrath), are so heavy it's hard to distinguish some of that vital Pantera groove and riffage. It's so heavy in places sometimes it doesn't work musically, but this was the last super-heavy Pantera album, so if you don't like this you can rest in the knowledge there are Pantera CDs more suited to your tastes, like the next one, Reinventing The Steel.
1. The Great Southern Trendkill. Much like the last CD, Far Beyond Driven, this starts heavy. VERY heavy. In fact, this is probably the heaviest Pantera moment, EVER, even more so than Use My Third Arm off FBD. For the first 14 seconds, an ear-splitting scream and wall of guitars tears your ears to bits. Charming. Followed by a very heavy verse and chorus, and a groove laden lead-out, which takes some repeated listening to truly appreciate.
2. War Nerve. Another personal favourite, with some extreme soloing from Dimebag Darrell and even more extreme lyrics, about how people - namely the media - blast Phil for what and who he is...
3. Drag The Waters. A good single type song, the only one on the album deemed worthy of radio play, and it's still heavy. During the chorus, an excellent tempo change and syncopation comes in and surprises every listener on the planet. Very nice, one of the best.
4. 10s. About Phil's overdose.
