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

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless 15 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is truely incredible. Right from the start to the very last note you will get pulled in. This album is certainly by no means short of amazing riffs, solos and all round great guitar playing. Vocaly Phil is at his most versatile pulling off power metal type vocals to rough and gritty styles simular to that of the later part of their career. The drums are pounding and well used as well as basslines that complemet all of the guitar work perfectly. This is one of those rare CD's you will buy that will be timeless as it can be played over and over again and be just as enjoyable as the first time you heard it. If you like metal to drink to, do yourself a favour and buy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have album 9 Jan 2003
Format:Audio CD
Well, this album has got to be the best album produced by pantera. Complete with amazing riffs and the amazing vocals of Phil Aslemo. theyre isnt a good song on the whole record as they are all amazing! any acclaimed metal fan should have it in their collection. highlights of the album would include 'cemetary gates' its mellow yet powerful lyrics can make the hairs on your arm stand on end! the lyrical content of this album is wonderful, this isnt an album ful of meaningless random words or is a very talented masterpiece that will stay in your CD player for months on end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Avatara's review of Pantera "Cowboys from Hell" 30 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
In a time when Grunge was taking the rock world by storm it was a pure pleasure to hear this unabashed thrash master piece. This is the second album that Phil Anselmo sings on and it's a lot heavier than "Power metal". The most surprising fact about this band is that they only had one guitarist and Dimebag Darrell was all they needed! Dimebag was one of the most amazing all-round guitar players, his riffs were crushing and powerful, his leads were fast, strange, crazy, precise and outright amazing. This band were at the top of their game when they recorded this killer album and their killing streek lasted till the end! This album has 12 killer tracks and is 2minutes shy of an hour and it still feels like it's over too quickly!!! This album is a perfectly balanced Thrash metal extravagansa and doesn't have a single bad track on it! Each musician is excellent and their collaborations are flawless! This album is the rebirth of thrash metal in an upgraded form with classic metal, thrash and punk influences. If you love thrash then this album must be in your collection! Long live Dimebag Darrell!!!!Cowboys from Hell: 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition/Remastered & Expanded (3CD)

By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Pantera's debut (ignoring semantic arguments about the four albums that the band released earlier on the metal magic label) studio album Cowboys From Hell was released in 1990 and has since become a platinum-selling classic album, almost uncontested in its status and practically universally acclaimed.

Pantera were one of the most important band's in the history of metal and were a rallying point for fans during the 1990s when a lot of metal bands and fans came under fire in the media, justly and unjustly alike.

Compared to later Pantera albums, this may seem a little different; the music is more (though not completely) rooted in 1980s Thrash and Heavy Metal than the albums which would follow and the style of vocals are often quite different, including several sections of extreme high pitched falsetto vocals in the style of Judas Priest.

Cowboys From Hell contains several of the bands best known and much loved tracks, such as the semi-epic 'Cemetery Gates,' the title track 'Cowboys from Hell,' and 'Domination,' but as a whole, the record is generally a strong release and isn't just a few hits and a lot of filler.

This 20th Aniversary Deluxe Edition includes the previously unreleased studio track 'The Will To Survive,' (discounted as it shared some riffs with other Pantera songs of the era) and demos of almost all the songs; as well as the tracks from the rare five-track 1994 Live-EP "Alive And Hostile" and the seven-track live show from Foundations Forum in 1990, both of which feature Cowboys' era track listings.

With all the extras, as well the deluxe packaging and sound quality this is a superb product that I would highly recommend to prospective buyers. If you want to get a hold of Cowboys From Hell and have the money, this is certainly worth getting a hold of. If you are new to Pantera however, don't only buy this; get all of their other albums too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Texan metal 17 Jun 2000
Format:Audio CD
Kicking off the album, Cowboy's From Hell will show you exactly what Pantera's all about. It's raw, its heavy and its brilliant. If you've never heard Pantera before, you'd probably do better to buy Vulgar Display Of Power but if you've already got that this is well worth buying.

Buy yourself a bottle of jack daniels, take a few sips, sit back ,close your eyes put this record on and imagine you are in a wild west saloon bar drinking, letting the good time girls play with your big gun, and causing mayhem. For we are the cowboys from hell baby and we are taking no prisoners! Hell yeah! Thats how the opening track makes me feel! This is a great album, buy it man!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pantera your walls down! 12 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is definately Pantera's best album (yes, that's better than the incredibly overrated Vulgar Display Of Power). Every song is memorable in it's own way. Songs like Primal Concrete Sledge, Cemetry Gates and Message In Blood are fantastic and shows Dime's ability being pushed to the limit. The drumming is also fantastic on this album, Vinnie Paul is a legendary metal drummer!

Track ratings:

1. Cowboys From Hell - A fantastic opening track. Even my mother is able to get into the groove of this track!
Rating: 10/10

2. Primal Concrete Sledge - My second favourite track because of it's sheer energy and fantastic sound. A live favourite. This song gives you a good idea of what Pantera is all about!
Rating: 10/10

3. Psycho Holiday - Same as above, joint second favourite.
Rating: 10/10

4. Heresy - Good, but not as good as the first three, although this does contain some fantastic guitar and drum work. Phil's vocals on this song and basically the whole album are phenomical.
Rating: 9/10

5. Cemetry Gates - One of my favourite songs ever. Goes on a bit, but it's worth the wait!
Rating: Absolute Maximum!

6. Domination - Same as track 4. Generally, a good track. I love the intro!
Rating: 9.5/10

7. Shattered - See above. Same except better.
Rating: 10/10

8. Clash With Reality - I love this song, you will too!
Rating: 10/10

9. Medicine Man - Worst track on the album. Don't get it stuck in your head!
Rating: 8/10

10. Message In Blood - Fantastic chorus and solo! You will not be able to leave this track alone!
Rating: 10/10

11. The Sleep - This isn't a track that you will easily remember.
Rating: 8.5/10
