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

Naked City Rules!!!
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.
this album is really good. at first, i threw it back in the cd rack, thinking it was just a bunch of noise. then i started listening again. i grew to love the fact that it is raw, unpleasant, and absolutely thunderous. i like the fact that there are slow songs mixed in, after all you need a break following some of the hard hitting tracks. if this album makes you uncomfortable, that's understandable. but remember, you are not expected to identify with everything that is said. if we were all like phil, vinny, etc. then what good would the world be? this is a good album. it really blows you away, and not just on the loud tracks. give this one time, and i think you'll find that there is something special here. the matter is not pretty, it doesn't sound pretty, and it's not meant to be. pick this one up and let it sink in.
