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

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
5 minutes alone
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!Read more ›
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.

As everyone knows, PanterA's major label debut actually isn't their first, an alternative vocalist took the place years back, with the band having more of a glam/hair metal... Read morePublished on Dec 16 2006 by ...
...thrash would have died out. That's the honest-to-God truth. I can easily recommend this album for anyone who's looking for a more brawny and hirsute alternative to Metallica. Read morePublished on July 19 2004
