Pantera - Cowboys From Hell

Biography

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

Editorial Reviews

Import version features a different track listing to the US edition.. With its pioneering 'power groove' sound, Pantera leapt onto the metal scene of 1990 with the landmark album COWBOYS FROM HELL. The Texan band distinguished itself by offering up a potent mid-tempo version of the typically fast-paced thrash metal style, resulting in a dense, crushing sound that served as a solid foundation for Phil Anselmo's dynamic growl-to-a-falsetto-in-seconds-flat voice. Although this collection only features five tracks from the early-'90s one-two punch of COWBOYS FROM HELL and VULGAR DISPLAY OF POWER, it serves as a good introduction to the band's overall output. Pantera's career from the mid-'90s onward is represented by fierce tracks such as "I'm Broken", "Becoming", "5 Minutes Alone", and "I'll Cast a Shadow", as well as covers of Black Sabbath's "Planet Caravan" and Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever".

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good compilation, could've been better February 24, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Like many Pantera fans are saying on here, this compilation is missing some essential Pantera songs (especially "F*cking Hostile") in favor of some surprise appearances (i.e. "I'll Cast a Shadow") and rarities ("Cat Scratch Fever", "Hole in the Sky" and a live version of "Where You Come From".)

In addition, some songs are on here that probably shouldn't be. Take "Planet Caravan", for instance. Though it's a single, it wasn't written by Pantera (it's a Black Sabbath cover) and it doesn't sound like what Pantera normally sound like (it isn't a good representation of the band.)

Also, "The Great Southern Trendkill" (a very overlooked album) is only represented by one song on here. "TGST" was as good of an album as "Reinventing the Steel", thus it deserves more than one song (maybe "Floods" and/or the Grammy nominated acoustic ballad "Suicide Note Pt. 1".)

But, most of the Pantera classics are here ("Cowboys From Hell", "Mouth For War", "Walk", "Revolution is My Name".) Plus, most of the songs that ARE here are pure gold, and, "Planet Caravan" aside, no Pantera greatest hits collection would be complete without any of these songs.

"Cowboys from Hell" is an instant classic that defined Pantera.

"Cemetery Gates" is sort of a morbid power ballad, but it does have it's heavy points. Plus, near the end, Phil yells in a falsetto voice.

"Mouth for War", "Vulgar"'s lead single, begins with a great opening guitar riff and drum work, which speed up as the song progresses, before falling into a groove.

"Walk" has a famous and mighty catch staccato riff which runs throughout the whole song, and pauses (only briefly) for a speaker shredding guitar solo.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Depends... October 17, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I personally am a moderate fan of Pantera's music, they make some good stuff but I do certiantly have my big share of metal bands I'll take over them any day of the week. They do however, make some incredible music and this can not be denied...when you talk about the best metal tracks of all time you better damn well include "Cemetary Gates". However, I was never terribly impressed with any Pantera albums as whole. When I saw the track listing for this CD though, I was convinced to buy it right away. Yes, I know that it is missing a great deal of songs but I feel for a single disk of music, they did an incredible job of fitting the best stuff Pantera has ever done on here. The booklet talking about the span of Pantera's career is a nice read as well and even quickly touches on Pantera's glam days (blahahaha). Anyways, on top of this it comes with a bonus DVD which has 10 Pantera music videos along with 2 live song videos. deffinatly an awesome thing to have in my eyes. When it comes to the music however, I can see the complaints from the diehard fans of Pantera. To me though, I'd say this is a worthwhile buy for even diehard fans because of the DVD. If the DVD isn't that a big a deal to you though and you already own all of Pantera's CD's, this album is deffinatly a waste of time. So, I'd say think about it before you buy it. If you don't own all of Pantera's stuff and want the DVD, I'd say its something you should deffinatley get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Did I get a different version than everyone here? December 20, 2003
By Cory G.
Format:Audio CD
Before I actually review this cd, I wanna set a few things straight. Alot of these reviews have said a few puzzling things.... Since when did the cd not have "F****** Hostile" or "Immortally Insane" included? A few of your other whinges were found on this cd as well. Amazon.com really stuffed up with the tracklist, so if you didn't buy the cd original and downloaded it using the tracklist on Amazon, or just looked at the tracks and reviewed them, I suggest you go to a shop and look at them. I don't know if my cd is any different (I bought it in Australia), but some of the tracks Amazon wrote there aren't there and some they didn't are. I do agree with the guy that said there wasnt enough from Great Southern Trendkill, though. Here, this is what I got on my cd (I'll review the songs while I'm at it):
1. Cowboys From Hell - This song has classic written all over it, a fantastic song and one of my favs.
2. Domination - This song is fantastic, great guitar work, amazing solos from Dimebag!.
3. Cemetary Gates - Quite possibly Pantera's best song (even if it isn't, it's still my favourite track from Pantera). This morbid and epic ballad still has its heavy moments and has some of Phil's more intelligent lyrics.
4. Mouth For War - Very brutal chainsaw guitars used here. Phil really does sound good here.
5. Walk - This is an absolute essential Pantera track. One of their more popular songs, it's brutal and carries the less than subtle "F*** you" message. Excellent song.
6. This Love - Not one of my favourite Pantera songs for the simple fact that it has a slow start. Ends up being VERY heavy.
7. F****** Hostile - YES IT IS ON HERE AND SOUNDING BETTER THAN EVER!!!!!!!!!! This awesome and brutal song is, of course, one of Pantera's best.
