Product Description

Product Description

Ounce for ounce, decibel for decibel, few bands can even approach the fury that is Pantera. For years they have been unleashing their anger in front of rabid crowds who have helped them sell millions of albums without MTV or heavy radio airplay, and now they are back with a new album of their most dynamic, fierce and unruly rock to date. Certified at 500 thousand by the RIAA. (2/01)


Just two tracks into Reinventing The Steel, and it seems that Pantera--the godfathers of speed metal--have brightened up: "Don't waste your life / Embrace it" roars vocalist Phil Anselmo on "Goddamn Electric", an unusual sentiment to hear amid the pile driver drums and Diamond Darrell's crunching guitar riffs. Does this mean that Pantera have lost their brutal edge? Of course not. Reinventing The Steel is as vicious as they've ever been, it's just that now they're a bit more thoughtful and--after more than a decade--mature. Though for the most part the songs are as aggressive as ever ("We'll Grind That Axe For A Long Time", "Death Rattle" and frenzied album opener "Hellbound"), and display more depth than ever before, especially on standout tracks like "You Don't Belong To It" and "Uplift". Not since their breakthrough Cowboys From Hell has thrash metal sounded so fresh, and not since Vulgar Display Of Power have Pantera sounded so good. --Robert Burrow

5.0 out of 5 stars "Death Rattle Shakes!" April 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This pantera album is the heaviest out of all the pantera albums I have. This album is very brutal and awesome. Every song is great, not one bad song; not to mention the cover is pretty hardcore itself. Here's my ranking of each song from 1 to 10 (10 being great and 1 being awful)
1. Hellbound--9/10-awesome openner; it is deafening and rowdy
2. Godda** Electric--8/10-my least favorite, however that does not mean I don't like this song; it is a very good song. Really raw and heavy.
3. Yesterday Don't Mean S***--9/10-fast, heavy, aggressive, all the qualities that a good heavy metal song should have.
4. You've Got To Belong To It--10/10-incredible song, it really kicks your @$$.
5. Revolution Is My Name--10/10-one of my favorite songs. amazing drum rhythms.
6. Death Rattle--10/10-another favorite, this song is extremely fast and extremely brutal.
7. We'll Gring That Axe For A Long Time--9/10-killer song!!
8. Uplift--9/10-another killer kick-@$$ song!
9. It Makes Them Disappear--9/10-another brutal song, very gutteral.
10. I'll Cast A Shadow--9.5/10-fantastic closer, fun to headbang to.
I don't know why a few people put this album down, this is a tremendous metal album!!

Format:Audio CD
My only gripe with STEEL is the lackluster lyrical content, (mostly drug-related nonsense) but other than that, this record kicks major ass as only these Dallas Cowboys from Hell can! The production is crystal clear, Vinnie's drums are bigger than Texas, Dime's guitars are heavier than molten iron, Rex's bass sounds like a bass and rhythm guitar playing at the same time (AMAZING!), and Drill Sergeant Phil lays down the law in this heavy metal boot camp!
Ten tracks with blast beats that remind you of salvo after salvo of enemy machine gun fire, guitar solos that shred your
soul into a billion trillion fragments, grinding riffs from the
deepest chasms of Gehenna, punch-you-in-the-jaw-and-
break-all-your-teeth vocal delivery, a sonic and athletic performance that Metalli-crap and the rest couldn't match to save their life (I dare say, not even Slayer/Death Metal)... but only the lyrics don't do me justice. But
that's okay because STEEL, like all true masterpieces, have at least one flaw that actually gives the work its beauty, no matter how twisted that may sound.
We all found out the ugly truth about Metallica even as far
back as '91: they are only in it for the money. Pantera came
as the "messiah" of all that is good and pure about heavy
metal. And, (gasp) believe it or not, these guys actually
appreciate their fans! (well at least Vinnie and Dime do)
It's too bad these guys had to break up. It wasn't Phil's
fault or anyone else's fault. It was drugs. Vinnie and Dime
know the truth about drugs but Phil is enslaved by heroin
and thinks anyone who does not use is less than human. That's
bulls*** bigger than Texas. (hell, even the whole damn
South!) But Pantera made the best damn heavy metal in all of
God's green earth and NOTHING can take that away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You Pantera For This Masterpiece Jan. 4 2004
Format:Audio CD
Pantera didn't miss a beat when they made Reinventing The Steel. I got this record for Christmas and I knew that I would not be disappointed when I put this record in my stereo. This record made me a Pantera fan. Reinventing The Steel was my first Pantera cd. This Record is fast, and brutal. All around, this record is amazing. Songs like "Death Radel" "Revolution Is My Name" and "God damn Electric" are great songs that make this album a classic. If you are a Pantera fan or you are discovering Pantera. I suggest you go down to your local record store, or any electronic store that sells cd's and pick up Pantera's Reinventing The Steel. You won't be disappointed with this record. If this is the very last cd Pantera will ever make. We'll I say that they did an amazing job on this record. Dimebags solos are amazing, Phil's energy on the record is excellent, Vinnie goes crazy on the drums, and Rex is kicking some butt like always on bass. Pick up Reinventing The Steel. You won't be disappointed. I can gurantee you that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard Hitting Metal Music Jan. 3 2004
By Alex
Format:Audio CD
At first listen Reinventing The Steel somehow sounds different than their other albums. I would rank it up there with Vulgar Display of Power. "Hellbound" starts the album out with a grinding riff and not over the course of its ten songs does it ever let up. "G*damn Electric" mentions trust in Black Sabbath and Slayer, "Yesterday Don't Mean Sh**" and "You've Got To Belong To It" are bad to the bone thrashers. "Revolution Is My Name" is an excellent hit with some great lyrics by Phil. "We'll Grind That Axe For A Long Time" is a good and "It Makes Them Disappear" is my favorite song on the album. It is strange that this is Pantera's last album. Lately they have not been getting along. Phil left with Rex to do other projects in the band Down and Superjoint Ritual. While Dimebag and Vinnie Paul have teamed up to form Damage Plan. It isn't official that this will be the last Pantera album, but if Reinventing The Steel is their last, its a damn good way to bow out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Guitar June 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
In response to that corny Evildead reviewer. The CRUNCH of guitar riffs are what annoy me. I'm not talking about the strange Black Sabbath-esque squealing noises. I think it takes a lot of talent to play those sounds. But it doesn't matter to me how much talent it takes to play them. I was hoping to hear music that would appeal to me, not what does not appeal to me.
If you seriously think that these weird guitar sqealings and how much talent for playing instruments Pantera has is going to increase my enjoying the music, There is something wrong with you. Also, why are you saying that I should TRY to play these noises? You need to understand the talent for playing intruments any given band maintains is not going to help me rate music. The only talent I bring into the mix is "talent for making good music" (I've given Trust Company 5 stars, and Pantera has a lot more instrumental talent then them). I do not find these squealing noises terribly interesting, therefore preventing me from having any interest to try and play them.
Also, the only band that has ever been the least bit consistant by staying sticking to formula is Slayer (not that I'm a huge fan). Pantera doesn't even come close.
Don't even bother with this. awful stuff
overall rating 1.1 (rounded to 1)

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably Their Best!!!
This is probably Pantera's finest release. If there is one. i mean, all of their albums are so heavy and good, it's hard to say which one is best. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Pantera has Reinvented the steel
I believe metal to have been invented by Slayer/Metallica, etc. in the early 80's. Pantera reinvented this sound in the early 90's. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the last true metal cds?
Pantera always had a sound all their own. And with the growing trends of today (namely hardcore), it is unlikely to hear pure heavy metal like this again. Read more
