Product Description

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

This album solidified pantera as rip off artists of the worst kind. On their first 4 albums they played hair rock music facilitated by the fact that diamond darrels dad owned a recording studio. Once fellow Texans exhorder got well known globally pantera realized that metal was going to be the next big thing so they stole exhorders musical style completely.pantera then dropped their make up and spandex and took on a grunge look instead. The music on this CD is not only badly written and serves as a reminder of the terrible early 90's mistakes bands were making but the recording is thin and compressed to hell(should have been the actual title). Add in the fact that second pantera singer Phil Anselmo is a well known white power enthusiast/racist and you have a CD and band that you want absolutely nothing to do with. Yep this is a white power band folks.google pantera 1995 Montreal and watch anselmos hate speech he gave in front of thousands of people. Look up his recent white power salute and cheer fiasco. Pathetic.if you like crap ripped off music and white power then this is for you.its not for real metal fans however so avoid at all costs.

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.

This was the 2nd Pantera CD I purchased after Far Beyond Driven, and I should just say that Pantera were definitely better during their early days, before Phil Anselmo beefed up his muscles as well as his ego. He does sound amazing on this record though. Why? because he doesnt care to growl or gruff or slur vocals as he does nowadays, back then it was all about the high-pitched classic metal yells. I wonder if he can still sing like that, I bet he could if someone paid him enough. Anyone into early Metallica, Slayer, Overkill or any classic metal band should not be without this record. Plus all the fans of Progressive/Black/melodic/death etc (not that these styles are bad) who are growing tired of the same epic operatics, death growls, depressing i-wanna-die stuff and just looking for something fun should definitely pick this one up as well.
The record starts out great with Cowboys from Hell, a fast paced classic with an attitude, things keep their pace with tracks 2,3, and 4. Track 5 "Cemetary Gates" is a classic metal tune everyone should own: THE.BEST.PANTERA.SONG.EVER.WRITTEN.PERIOD! This song does slow down the fast pace though, but it's ok, it's still an amazing song. The kicking pace of this great cd continues with track 6,7 and you get the idea. Now why did I take off 1/2 a star you ask? Well, there were about 1 or 2 songs at most I didn't care for. One being "Clash with Reality" which was simply pretty boring. That's really about it though. Otherwise I have no gripes with this album. Classic Pantera rules! (no, not hair/makeup glam-metal pantera)

Phil Anselmo has always claimed a soft spot in my heart, as well as in my music collection. 'Cowboys...' was an affirmation of angst for me, in my prime as a teenager; even more so than I did then, I respect Pantera for their musical efforts - not to mention the Vulgar videos! 'Cowboys...' starts with the track that bears the same name; lyrically, its' hilarity is never lost by me, but altogether, the song would not be what it is without them. 'Primal Concrete Sledge' is what reminds me that Vinnie Paul, is still one of the most masterful double-kick bass drummers in metal today, maybe even one of the forefathers for todays black, nu, speed and death metal drummers. 'Pyscho Holiday' and 'Heresy' keep up tempo for the slightly more rock ballad-esque 'Cemetery Gates'; Anselmos' display of vocal ability on this track defies human capability! 'Domination' is where all likenesses to any pop/rock end; you cannot deny the furious, raw brutality of Vinnie Paul, teamed up with brother, Dimebag Darryl...the best bits? 'The Art of Shredding', 'Cowboys From Hell 'Primal Concrete Sledge'...Pantera reaches a far more crafted sound with 'Far Beyond Driven' - I would recommend that in addition to 'Cowboys From Hell', as well as 'The Great Southern Trendkill' and 'Reinventing the Steel'.
