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

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!!
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.
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)

Music aside, this is an excellent pressing. Rhino Vinyl knows how to do a record, that's for sure. It's solid, no warps, perfect cutout size for the spindle (not too tight) and... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mike
This album has the same qualities of othe pantera albums!
I really like it! it is playing in my car since i received for 3 weeks now!
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 morePublished on June 30 2004 by Offensive Donkey
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 morePublished on June 8 2004 by Adam Wyatt
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 morePublished on June 4 2004 by The Deac
I love Pantera, and I darn sure love this album too. This is pure true metal and the way it should be. Read morePublished on May 27 2004 by Jeremy Brackeen
Let me just say that this album kicks ass! This album contains Pantera's most intelligent lyrics and brutal riffs. Although its by far the worst Pantera has released... Read morePublished on May 25 2004 by No_Mercy_for_the_Weak
this was a poor attempt at "throwing" a record out,and just plain "winging it".still good cause it's pantera,but the smart lyrics and innovative musicianship are sub-par. Read morePublished on May 8 2004 by Trottin'-Butterz
