The album turns 20 this year and to mark the occasion Rhino will release THE GREAT SOUTHERN TRENDKILL: 20th ANNIVERSARY EDITION. This two-disc set includes the original album remastered, plus a dozen previously unreleased mixes, instrumentals, and live recordings. The set also features rare photos from the era, as well as new liner notes by esteemed rock critic and radio producer Katherine Turman that explore the stories behind the album and its legacy.
The companion disc that accompanies the original album features an unreleased version of every album track, including two versions of "Suicide Note Pt. 1" - a rough mix of the track, along with a separate version of the introduction, which spotlights Dimebag on 12-string acoustic guitar. The second disc also features a newly remixed version of the title track, rough mixes for "Drag The Waters" and "The Underground In America," as well as instrumental takes for "13 Steps To Nowhere" and "Living Through Me (Hell's Wrath)." In addition to the studio recordings, the anniversary collection features three live tracks recorded at the Dynamo Festival in Holland in 1998: "War Nerve," "Suicide Note Pt. II," and "Sandblasted Skin."

One thing that hurt this album was that it came out right around the same time as Metallica-'LOAD'
Not that every person that buys Met is into Pantera or vice versa but pretty close. When a band tries to compete with Met after a 5 year layoff and first album after their most popular ever it's a tough task.
This album got ZERO radio play. And after listening to it once you can tell why. It's unbelievably hard. And all those great Pantera grooves appear to be gone.
So if you've enjoyed this album in the past, this is a must-have. If you haven't, this probably won't change your mind.
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.
