Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Ounce for ounce, decibel for decibel, few bands can even approach the fury that is Pantera. For years they have been unleashing their anger in front of rabid crowds who have helped them sell millions of albums without MTV or heavy radio airplay, and now they are back with a new album of their most dynamic, fierce and unruly rock to date. Certified at 500 thousand by the RIAA. (2/01)


Pantera's back, and all is as wrong with the world as it ever was. They're going to make sure you know it, too. Despite the four-year absence from the studio between Great Southern Trendkill and Reinventing the Steel, Pantera's unflagging aggression is confirmed by the full-throttle rhythms, throat-ripping vocals, and crunchy guitars. Call it their Metallica legacy, except that Pantera are more Metallica than Metallica these days. Heavy metal of this breed may be past its heyday, but Pantera's not going away quietly. In fact, evidence suggests that they're not going away at all--no matter how low you keep the volume knob, Reinventing the Steel is loud, loud, loud! --Genevieve Williams

Customer Reviews

Every song is good, there is no filler.
J. Brittman
Just listen to the samples provided and make your decision I think you will agree with me they are a heck of a metal band and just keep getting better!
Robert Nicholson
Pantera is one of the best metal bands ever, and still are today.

It is my theory that Pantera released this album in spite of nu-metal. I think this not only because Phil Anselmo was publicly outspoken against nu-metal, but also because Pantera always went against the grain; they were never been the flavor of the month and they always made music they wanted to make. During a time when bands like Limp Bizkit and Korn were at the height of their career, Pantera release the heaviest album of their career. Just a straight forward, heavy as f*ck metal album that speaks for itself. Love it or hate it, you've got to give Pantera props for not jumping on the bandwagon. They didn't add rap to their metal, and they sure didn't shave the edges off their sound or go through a more alternative phase (a la Metallica's "Load" and Megadeth's "Risk").

Now, to all you reviewers who said this album was a sell-out: I'm confused. This album doesn't have a hint of melody to help increase album sales or get radio play. How is that a sell-out?

Highlights include:

"Hellbound" is a personal favorite and a great song to listen to when you want to get pumped up. The verses build well, leading into the incredible chorus, which is an absolutely brutal breakdown. The double kick drums and screeching guitar make a "boom-boom" sound, and Phil shrieks like he's being burned in the fires of Hades. Every time I hear this part of "Hellbound," I think "Oh, hell yeah!"
"Godd*mn Electric" features lead guitar played by Slayer's Kerry King. This song also has a galloping beat, with pounding drums and a wailing guitar solo.
"Revolution is My Name" is the single, and probably the catchiest song of the batch. Crunchy guitars, catchy drum rythms, and two winding guitar solos.

If you're one of those reviewers that don't like this album for some reason, I urge you to go back and listen to it a few times. It is really quite an amazing CD. I liked it a lot the first time I heard it, and now, after repeated listenings, I love it. Pantera does not falter here at all. In fact, they sound better than ever.
For starters, "Steel" contains two of Pantera's best songs ever: "We'll grind that axe for a long time" and "I'll cast a shadow." I think these songs hold their own with classics such as "5 minutes alone" and "Drag the waters." But that's just the beginning. Every song here rocks. There is not one clinker. "Uplift" kicks my a## every time. "Death rattle" actually scares me, it's so brutal. "You've got to belong to it" is ferocious. I could say the same for every track here, but you get the point. This album doesn't compromise, doesn't cop out, doesn't go soft. It'll smash your face in.
Leave it to Pantera, the hardest band on the planet, to give hard rock fans something to cheer about for once.

DAMMIT! Goddamn Electric is the BEST Pantera song I've heard for a LONG time! But, then there's Reinventing the Steel and Death Rattle, oh, and about 7 other crunching tracks that take Pantera back to the sound that made them one of the definitive metal bands, ever. If you look below you, you will gradually see more reviews giving full marks to this great record, than before. This is because these people will probably only be seing this record's true brilliance 5 days after they bought it. This is die hard Pantera and I love them for it. No fillers, no ballads, no real hit singles, just 10 hard-hitting tracks that heavy music needs right now. Pantera may be a number one selling band, but they stick firmly to their roots. They will not change. But, they will continue to make consistently great records that bow to no trend. True Pantera fans now this and as a result will totally love this record, which harks back to the classic vulgar display of power more than any of their other records - only, a lot more aggressive. People who were expecting this god awful 'nu' sound shouldn't be listening to Pantera.

After a four year wait, Pantera returns with yet another classic metal album. This album returns to the cleaner guitar/bass sounds remniscent of "FBD" and "Vulgar", yet with more "Cowboy's"-esque Dimebag riffs. Phil's voice is still Phil's voice, powerful and in your face! The best songs on this CD are: the heavy plodding "------- Electric", "You've Got to Belong to It" which sounds as if it could have almost been on the "Cowboys" album, "Revolution is My Name" where Phil actually SINGS pretty well, "Uplift" which features excellent bass play by Rex, and the album's closer "I'll Cast a Shadow". Any long-time PanterA fan will be more than satisfied with this album. Anyone that's just getting into the metal scene, here are a few bands that are definitely worth giving a listen to: Drain STH, Sevendust, Puya, Machine Head, Skinlab, and Candiria. Enjoy.

If you don't like this album, then you are not a real Pantera fan. I read someone complaining that this album is too heavy or something? WTF? Are you insane? If you want lame ass melodies and wimp music then go elsewhere.

This album freaking kicks in you in head the second it begins, and doesn't let up until the last fade out. It is 100% aggression. All the songs rule and they all have fantastic riffs and vocals. No awful nu-metal crap and no ballads.

Listening to this album makes my heart skip and it makes me want to fight - which is exactly what it should do.

Pantera should be proud of 3 things:

1. Their albums got HEAVIER with each successive release. This is almost unheard of considering how many metal bands sell-out, wimp out or change styles.

2. Pantera leaves a legacy of pure metal, and this last album stands up perhaps the best work of their careers.

3. They never compromised or sold-out. Period.

Sadly, Dimebag is gone but he will always be the soul of one of the most powerful bands to ever exist. RIP Darrell
