Product Description

Vince Paul, famed drummer from Pantera and Damageplan, debuts his self-owned label, Big Vin Records, with Rebel Meets Rebel! Rebel Meets Rebel is a collaboration of the Cowboys From Hell (the late Dimebag Darrell on guitar, Vinnie Paul and drums, and Rex Paul on bass) teamed with vocals by country outlaw legend and Grammy winning songwriter David Allan Coe. It is the final full-length recording to include Dimebag, and it is a record that he truly loved.

Amazon.com

A collaboration between country legend David Allan Coe, plus Pantera's Dimebag Darrell, Vinnie Paul, and Rex Brown, Rebel Meets Rebel serve as a throwback to the ragged glory of second-string Southern rock acts such as Molly Hatchet and the Outlaws. Fusing the nastiest, most uncompromising elements of the hard rock that made Dime and Co. famous with Coe's rebellious spirit, RMR succeed on tracks such as "Cowboys Do More Dope," "Panfilo," and "Time," though others, especially "N.Y.C. Streets" and "Get Outta My Life" (with Hank Williams III) are less successful, never becoming the fully-formed ideas that constitute great or even very good songs. Ultimately, RMR will satisfy Dimebag completists while doing little to enhance the late guitar legend's legacy. --Jedd Beaudoin

For those who don't already know, Rebel Meets Rebel is a project composed of Pantera's trio of musicians ("Dimebag" Darrell and Vinnie Paul Abbott and Rex Brown) and country singer David Allan Coe doing the vocals. This self-titled debut C.D. was recorded over the course of four years, from 1999 to 2003. Guitarist Dimebag Darrell was said to have loved this C.D. very much, but, for reasons beyond my knowledge, his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul, waited until now (a year and a half after Dimebag was killed) to release it.

Rebel Meets Rebel is just what it was supposed to be: a country/metal/rock/blues hybrid. Vinnie Paul describes it perfectly in the C.D. booklet: "It's not metal and it's not country, it's just a get together of country metal minds! Pure Hell raisin', boozin', jammin' fun!"

Mixing country music and heavy metal (which are two very different musical genres) has been done before. One example is when one of ex-Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo's side projects, Down, put sludge metal alongside country-style ballads for their second album, "Down II: A Bustle In The Hedgegrow." But I don't think country and metal has ever been fused together and had such successful results as Rebel Meets Rebel. If, for some odd reason, you can't give this album credit for anything else, at least give it credit for being very interesting.

The music on here is almost always quite heavy, since Dimebag still contributes Pantera-esque guitar crunch to nearly every song, and also includes a few solos. And there are a lot of deep, catchy grooves to be heard, here. There are only a couple of songs when the music sounds like it could have come off of a bluegrass record: as in the title track, when Dime makes his guitar sound like a fiddle, and the closer, "N.Y.C.

This is the project that Dimebag, Vinnie, and Rex recorded during their off-Pantera time from 1999-2003 with legendary country outlaw David Allen Coe. I was really curious how this was going to sound. I've never liked country, so I was worried that I might hate it, Pantera being the backing band or not. I can happily say that I definitely dig it. It's got a really fun vibe going on, and (as always) Dime does lay down some killer riffs and solos. Coe's vocals WILL take some getting used to if you are as opposed to country as I am, but (at least for me) they will probably grow on you. If you're looking for Pantera part 2, I would suggest not even bothering with this. If you're like me though and are interested in everything Dime ever recorded, I'd suggest giving it a try. Is it my favorite material Dime ever recorded? Of course not. But it is enjoyable if you can try and keep an open mind. I for one am happy that Vinnie released this, and I can actually see myself listening to it more than the Damageplan album. Production wise it SOUNDS more like Pantera musically than Damageplan did, and that is a very good thing as far as I'm concerned. Let's put it this way, if you don't have an ear to ear grin on your face after hearing the duet Coe and Dime do on the title track, I doubt you were as affected with Dime as I was. You can tell they were just doing this to have a good time jamming with someone they admired. Different genre of music be damned! I could best describe it as The Charlie Daniels Band meets Pantera. If that sounds interesting to you, or you love Dime's playing as much as I do, I'd recommend picking this one up.

First, this is an amazing disc ... if you're into Pantera, pick this up.

From the first track, "Nothin' To Lose", this disc grabs you and dares you to like something different - a meld of metal and country. I'm not a country fan, but I'll tellyouwhut, it works here, y'all.

David Alan Coe is up to his old tricks with the lyrics for this disc ... check out "Cowboys Do More Dope" ... classic!

Listening to this disc, though, I couldn't help but once gain feel the sadness of Dimebag's death. A great CD like this just reminds us all what an incredible waste of talent his murder was.

It sounds like these guys had a lot of fun making this disc ... would've been interesting to hear another project between DAC and the Cowboys From Hell.

R.I.P. Dimebag.

I am so pumped this album finally got released, it was recorded when Pantera were still a working unit with the country legend David Alan Coe! I love every song on here, from start to finish it kicks some major asphalt. Dimebag Darrell's guitar work is phenominal as usual, but here he really shows how far he could take his talent on the six string. Vinnie and Rex throw out some killer grooves as well, but the 66 year old David Alan really makes this album unique. At some points on the album he almost sounds like an ex member of ZZ top when he sings. All In All i simply am hooked on this album, i can't stop listening to it, its great drinkin music or smokin music, its too bad Dimebag wasn't around when it was released, its something all of the members should be extremely proud of. NOTHING TO LOSE is a great gambling rocker, REBEL MEETS REBEL has an awsome duet with David Alan and Dimebag, COWBOYS DO MORE DOPE should be a hit cause its so damn catchy and funny, PANFILIO is another great example of Dime's playing, HEART WORN HIGHWAY is a real cool song with a cool almost Pink Floyd sounding instrumental part, ONE NIGHT STANDS is another catchy rocker, ARIZONA RIVERS is the slowest song on the album, GET OUTTA MY LIFE is a bad to the bone song with Hank WilliamsIII guesting vocals, CHEROKEE CRY has an awsome groove and some crazy Cherokee chants, TIME is something you can't steal, NO COMPROMISE is the heaviest song on the album, and NYC STREETS is an acustic based rocker with some funny lyrics to end this exellent album. I highly reccomend to Pantera fans and David Alan Coe fans, listen to it with an open mind, because this is the best country fried metal you'll ever hear in 2006. Rock In peace Dime!!

Metal and country combo was inevitable
I'd have to agree. I just finished the preview of this album, and think it's AWESOME. I'd highly recommend this. I'm sad that we won't see anymore RmR, as I've enjoyed this band MUCH more than Damageplan (not that I hated DP, but I'm enjoying RmR much more!)
