My first day on the blog and youtube decides to take a giant shit on me. Oh well.
So today the 20th anniversary edition of Pantera's Cowboys From Hell hits stores.
I was only five years old when this album was released and cared more about MC HAMMER than Diamond Darrell. Of course I eventually transformed into a bitter/maladjusted teenager just in time to hop on the Pantera train for Reinventing the Steel. Needless to say I'm older, wiser, and even more bitter/maladjusted now and still celebrate Pantera's entire catalog (well almost, not that hair-metal shit).
Today, I suggest everyone spin this sucker at full blast and remember Phil's killer "I'll suck you Halford" vocals; Dimeba...Diamond Darrell's "too good for Megadeth" solos and Vinnie Paul's pre-douche bag identity (Hell Yeah? Fuck you man). Rex is and always has been cool as shit. DOMINATION.
