Product Description

Amazon.ca

On which the singularly unsubtle Texas quartet further intensify their self-proclaimed "vulgar display of power" to a frankly seismic degree. After beginning life in the early Eighties as a band rooted in the mannered tradition of Aerosmith and Kiss, Pantera drastically changed their tack in 1988 by metamorphosing into an uncompromising thrash metal combo reminiscent of Metallica. Since then, they've viciously honed their virtuoso, über-rock stampede into hyperspace. The Great Southern Trendkill finds vocalist Phil Anselmo mercilessly ripping his throat to shreds as fretboard strangler "Dimebag" Darrell casually spits out head-spinning lead lines of such ferocity that they clearly belong behind bars. And just as "Suicide Note Part One" lulls you into a false sense of security with its uncharacteristically acoustic introspection, "Part Two" leaps out of the speakers to rip the top off your cranium and toss it into the trash like a Frisbee. Definitely not for those with nervous dispositions. --Ian Fortnam

I know, I know, you are all saying another metal head writing a review about a metal CD... right? because that is what i say when reading these reviews, but anyway, enough of that. This is a great CD for so many reasons. First, it was my "gateway" CD. Before this CD, i was listening to Metallica (Load era mind you) and thinking that it was so awesome and hard. Then I got this and was completely blown away. this CD pretty much encompasses my emotions of the time as well, so angry and against everything. This CD is also so differnt from anything else they have done, and I wouldnt be ashamed to call this experimental Pantera... They cover quite a range of songs on this CD, from both Suicide Notes, to 10s, there is not a song on this CD that i dont love. Dont get me wrong, I love all of their CDs post-power metal era (which they have conveniently shoved under the rug). I do hate phil though, I mean look at his choice of music... Superjoint? they suck! if he had to quit pantera, he could have at least stayed with down, they were awesome. Anyway, I love this CD, and you should buy it now (why doesnt Amazon have the American version?)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in places. April 26 2001
Format:Audio CD
Whereas the first three albums are of a high quality and Reinventing The Steel is of a reasonable quality, this falls below the others. There's no real groove to it, no original riffs, and where are the solos? The leads are very simple (with a few exeptions such the title track - which has one of my favourite leads ever) compared to what's on offer on other albums. Dimebag is one of the best guitarists in metal (he was banned from playing at national competitions at the age of 16!) but he most certainly does not prove his talent here.
It does have its up points though, in all fairness. It contains a few experimental songs like 10s and Floods (which has a very effective, even tear-jerking ending). Songs like Suicide Note Part 2 and Sandblasted skin are good 3 minute thrashers. As I said earlier, the title track as a blinding solo. There's a bit to enjoy for a short while if you're already a Pantera fan. Ultimately though, I won't be listening to this much. At first I prefered this to Far Beyond Driven, but now that I've given that album a chance, I've realized that it is far superior to this. Check out Cowboys From Hell or Vulgar Display Of Power before you go near this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pantera's darkest and most introspective Oct. 27 2000
By "saean"
Format:Audio CD
TGSTK was released in '96 near the end of a relentless cycle of touring and recording by the band. Many fans sensed Pantera's (and especially Phil's) growing alienation from the mainstream media and music press, who were attacked violently throughout songs such as "13 Steps" and "War Nerve". Many were also confused by the alternating extremes of hostility and depression that characterize the album. Songs such as "10s", "Suicide Note", and "Floods" marked new territory musically and lyrically, exploring disillusionment and drug abuse in a way that really gave the listener a feeling that the band was on the verge of self-destruction. What distinguishes TGSTK from other moody heavy music is its unique "downer" atmosphere that reflects some serious studio work (Phil recorded his vocals in NOLA at Trent Reznor's on this one). Many of the songs are unique in this respect, as Pantera was (as continues to be) so well known as a live band, even with respect to the feel of their studio recordings. Seriously, anyone who has ever been to a show knows that the boys aren't going to get up on wooden stools and strum out "Suicide Note Pt. 1" unplugged while everyone holds up their Zippos. Nevertheless, TGSTK is a truly unique album in the Pantera catalog. Reinventing (like all the others) kicks a$$ for sure-it's a celebration of metal and its fans that reminds us of when Cowboys and VDP were brand new and blowing our minds. Pantera will be around forever, but will probably never release an album like TGSTK again. It remains unmatched as an honest, uncompromising statement by a band on the edge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Metal. Aug. 17 2000
Format:Audio CD
Pantera remains as one of the GREAT metal bands of the time. This album is one of the best offerings brought to us by the Cowboys From Hell. Like all of the Pantera albums, this one captures the intensity and aggression that these guys have. Pantera has incredible ability, and I think they'll be around for a long, long time. Some knotheads say that Pantera "sold out" on this record. NO WAY! They haven't changed.
Dimebag Darrell is still an inspirational guitarist. Vinnie Paul is still an unyielding drummer.- No one plays harder than this man. Rex is still a consistant bassist. Philip Anselmo is probably the best singer in metal right now. He can sing about as well as he can scream. The song/music writing skill of Pantera seems almost limitless. The song "War Nerve" disses the media. "Living Through Me (Hells' Wrath)" is in my opinion, the best Pantera song because the guitar riffs are fast and the lyrics are cool. "Suicide Note Pt. 1" shows a mellower approach which was not shown on REINVENTING THE STEEL. "Suicide Note Pt. 2" is just pure insanity. THE GREAT SOUTHERN TRENDKILL is definitely a heavy metal masterpiece. Pantera isn't a 1980's Hair Band survivor so don't judge this band until you've heard them.
