Product Description

Product Description

Certified gold by the RIAA. (6/96)

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?)

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.

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.

PLEASE STOP TIRING MY BRAIN. i sat here for the last 30minutes reading all of the reviews. half of the reviewers spend theirtime comparing pantera to metallica, korn, limp bizkit, and so on. as for my OPINION.....
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.
