Pantera - Cowboys From Hell

Biography

Editorial Reviews

The scorched-earth roar and "power groove" of Pantera lit the path for those '90s metal bands who were brave enough to follow. Their first-ever "best-of"- Cowboys from Hell; This Love; Walk; I'm Broken; Planet Caravan; Drag the Waters; Hole in the Sky , and nine more-joins a DVD with videos for Psycho Holiday; Cemetery Gates , and 10 other Pantera piledrivers!

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.

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.

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.

Pantera was one of the most influential bands of the metal genre (sadly, they won't be anymore with Dimebag...RIP brother Dime), and one of the most creative and heavy of its kind. They encompassed what metal fans loved, and Vinnie Paul's excellent drumwork and Dimebag's genre-influencing mastery of the guitar led Pantera to greatness, along with Phil Anselmo's trademark bark/bite vocals and Rex's nice, thumping bass. FAR BEYOND THE GREAT SOUTHERN COWBOYS VULGAR HITS is a good collection retrospective, but one that has some flaws to it. While the first half of the disc includes some very good Pantera classics, the second half leaves much room for improvement.

Aside from including great songs like the punishing "Mouth For War", the instantly memorable "Cemetary Gates", the downright brutal "I'm Broken", and the drilling "Drag The Waters", there are some songs left off that would have more than made the collection essential. "F***ing Hostile" was one of the best songs from VULGAR, and it's absence, along with "Floods", "Suicide Note Pt. 1", "A New Level", "Strength Beyond Strength" and "The Badge" are felt. All these could have made the collection a 3-disc set instead of what we are left with here. Some albums could have had better representation on this collection, and the inclusion of "Cat Scratch Fever", while admirable, doesn't fit. The bonus DVD isn't a bad catch at all, showcasing the Pantera music video collection for those of us who can't catch it on MTV2.

So for those interested to hear Pantera's sound who don't already know it by now, this collection is a solid introduction to the group, but it won't fill the void. If you really want to hear the groups evolution, start with COWBOYS FROM HELL and work your way up to REINVENTING THE STEEL. So while this collection is essential for casualgoers, the hardcore fans should probably stick with the albums...but get this collection for the bonus DVD.
