Even those who scoff at the idea that rock & roll is the devil's music have to think twice when listening to Pantera. The pill-popping, strip-bar-ogling, beer-guzzling Texas combo takes Metallica's speed-metal cues to new heights of brutality and sacrilege. Fortunately, they're extremely good at what they do. The polyrhythmic complexity of Vinnie Paul's drumming in "Psycho Holiday" and guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell's breathtaking solo in "Heresy" are examples of state-of-the-art metal musicianship. Vocalist Phil Anselmo often sounds like Metallica's James Hetfield, but his brooding croon on "Cemetery Gates" and his falsetto screams on the blindingly fast "Shattered" are more like vintage Deep Purple. Released in 1990, Cowboys made Pantera one of metal's top draws during an era in which it was almost eclipsed by alternative rock. --James Rotondi

To simply put it, I love this album. It is very original. This album definitely put pantera on the map as one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Each album I own, never disappoints to deliver a few songs that are full of fury, brutality, and plenty of thrashing. The title track is a classic example for thrashing. Cemetary Gates, the best track on the album, is masterfully orchestrated, goes from slow, soothing guitar rifts to faster and more pounding guitar rhythms along with strong drum patterns, and incredible vocals. Shattered, one of the faster tracks is an approach to speed metal and the title describes the sound of the song; it is very shattering. The Sleep, in my opinion, is a very underrated song. Sure it's a ballad, but it's a very catchy one, not to mention it has one of the best guitar solos I have ever heard. The guitar solo just fits the sound and tone of the song perfectly, I don't think you find a better solo to fit the song. This is a must-have for any Pantera fan.

A band who made it big without radio or television hosting, Pantera made some of the best albums in the metal industry today, noteably 'Cowboys From Hell'. With sound-proof guitaring from Dimebag Darrell, machine gun drumming from Vinne Paul, hard-hitting bass riffs from Rex Brown and incredible vocals from Phil Anselmo this album is everything a heavy metal fan could want. However, still inspired by the glam scene of the early 80's it's evident in some songs with Anselmo screaming out in a very glam rock style. The album is full-on thrash and heavy metal with the exception of 'Cemetary Gates' which shows Anselmos wide range of vocals and Dimebags endless skills with a guitar. An album, a band like no other, Pantera got their claim to fame by constant touring and hard work. A band who never sold out to the corporate music business to make their money. If you like Metallica, Megadeath, Slayer etc. then you'll love Pantera. If you are after music from a band with power then 'Cowboys From Hell' is for you.

I first bought a pantera album when i saw the familiar cover of far beyond driven, it was on sale so i bought it.
When i first heard it i found it slightly too noisy, the vocalist seemed hard to listen to at first.
I am a big MegadetH, Metallica and anthrax fan, so i believe that heaviness not all that counts
i still do not like far beyond driven that much, but tracks like
Im Broken
5 minutes alone
Becoming
Slaughtered
these very good tracks make it definatley worth purchase
I bought cowboys from hell in some random music store in florida on my holidays.
From the second that i put it in the CD player, i was hooked
This album combines the fast riffs from metallica and megadeth
mixes that with the heavier style of john bush Anthrax
adds this to the sheer rage of slayer and THEN pous some sugar on top!
The riffs are powerful,fast and melodic
the vocals are much more like metal
the drums are mindblowing and the solos are near unmatchable.
The opening and title track Cowboys from hell is amazing
inventive and addictive riff and chorus with a great solo to boot
A GREAT TRACK
The next standout track is heresy, very fast and ferocious with a kick ass solo
The greatest track on the album(and one of the greatest metal tracks of al time) cemetary gates is mindblowing a true ballad
the lyrics are both inventive and thoughtful the song flows well and the guitar solo has to be listened to 20 times to believe the speed of it at points, if you see him perform it it is an expierience 10+++/10!

Pantera. What name could evoke more of an image of heavy metal in the 1990's (well, before all the numetal bands ruined that image for what still seems like forever)? Sure, screaming, swearing, downtuned guitars, all that good stuff had been around for ages before Pantera, but they made it simply a MUST for metal. And to think, before this album, Pantera had a close resemblance to the endless (*gasp!*) glam-"metal" bands that plagued the '80s! I have yet to hear this earlier Pantera, but that hardly matters at this point; here, with their 1990 major-label debut, COWBOYS FROM HELL, Pantera proved that THEY, and they alone, were the masters of their game.
Four of metal's most-worshipped classic idols are here: Dimebag (here Diamond) Darrell on guitars, Phil Anselmo on vocals, Rex "Rocker" Brown on bass, and Vinnie Paul on drums. This is such a tight, fierce lineup, and their individual and combined efforts made Pantera one of the most important and original metal bands, ever.
This album has many now-classic songs; from the opening title track to the semi-power-ballad "Cemetary Gates," Pantera's thrashy, furious sound pounds out like nothing else at the time.
Sorry I'm being so vague here; perhaps I'll someday edit this review so I get more into this album. I just needed to acknowledge Pantera's supreme importance and unrivaled power, and until their recent breakup (due to, among other things, a rather rude lack of communication on Phil's part...jerk), they were simply THE seminal heavy metal band in the 1990's.
