Product Description

Product Description

Pantera Great Southern Trendkill

Amazon.co.uk

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

Many will disagree with those words, but there is no doubt in my mind that here the boys really managed to do the imossible. To outdo both Vulgar and Far Beyond. Old school metallers like myself remember that around this albums release, the metal climate was changing,big names like Metallica and Megadeth had gone kinda "soft" and NU-Metal was beginning to rise. Again the Texans went against what other bands were doing, and became heavier than ever.This album has a feel to it that cannot be discribed.Songs like Suicide note 1 and 2, Drag the Waters, War Nerve and their best song ever, Floods make this an astounding release.Give it a few listens, then youll understand,trust me.

Why is it that every favourite album I have is the bands (and most fans) least favourite? It always means that they devote no time to discussing it, or more importantly, to playing the songs live. Anyway, for me, this is the best Pantera work, as it encompasses every aspect of their brilliance of musicianship (Living through me), technical ability (suicide note part II), song writing (Floods), southern edge (The Underground in America) and sheer heaviness (the first three tracks!)
Written just before Phil's heroin overdose, this is probably their most darkest hour, but the music is perhaps more diverse than the previous three efforts, and since the tragic demise of Dimebag, a great testimony to the power they once possessed. A great album by the greatest metal band of their time.

When people talk about Pantera's best work, only Vulgar Display and Cowboys From Hell (bizarrely) ever seem to be mentioned. This is really puzzling. In the ten years I've been listening to extreme music this is in my top ten of albums. The Great Southern Trendkill (1996) is dark, exciting and will probably never be bettered.
The album opens ferociously with the title track. An evil, grinding riff then gives way to some stellar riffing by Dimebag Darrell. This part of the song is just a pleasure to listen to, particularly as the end hints at even darker tunes in the rest of the album. War Nerve has a slow start, then quickly picks up into a driving, military riff. Vinnie Paul's sense of rhythm is superb. If Dimebag shone on the first track then this is Vinnie's 3 or 4 odd minutes. Drag The Waters was a single for the band but unsurprisingly didn't exactly go Top 40. This is a sort of heavy pop song with a dark message of greed and corruption. The band's Southern roots really stand out on this track.
Track 4 is 10s. Despairing, slow and a middle part that is just beautifully miserable and forlorn. 13 Steps To Nowhere is again another superb track that never seems to get much credit from Pantera fans. The riff is haunting and frantic, particularly in the middle of the song where it just slows to the sound of a bell being tolled in the distance. Suicide Notes Part 1 and 2 are excellent - SN2 is in the same vein as Hostile but much darker, whilst SN1 is the sound of someone in the throes of topping themselves.
Living Through Me is easily the weakest track on the album. Very forgettable and the only average track on the album. Floods is a 7 minute mix of bleak acoustic guitar and grinding axework.

The title refers to what I thought when I heard the song "Living Through Me (Hells Wrath)" on the radio. It was the first Pantera song I ever heard. That was in 1997, and to this day, it is still my favourite Pantera track. Of course after I bought this album, I got their other stuff, and while everyone says Vulgar Display of Power was their best album, I disagree. Vulgar was good, but it had some boring songs at the end, unlike Trendkill. The album kicks off to an explosive start from the first track (the title track), and many highlights are the chugging Drag The Waters, Slow grooving 10's, The eclectic Suicide Notes Pt 1 and 2, and especially Floods, which starts off slowish and haunting, then comes in heavy,intersperced with thunder samples, while the ending leaves an excellent guitar part (which is to short in my opinion). Phil Anselmo's vocals, like the music itself, are filled with rage and different shades, making this album much more adventurous than previous efforts. Not only that, Anal C**t frontman Seth Putman appears on 3 tracks(nice to hear him alongside proper rock music). This is by far Pantera's best effort.

This is by far Pantera's darkest, bleakest and heaviest album. This is where they went through the ceiling and pushed everything to the limit.The brutality and skullcrushing factor of the material on here is next to overwhelming. The title track caves your head in when it screams in at the beginning, and 'Drag the Nerve' features an extremely doomy riff, which conjures up visions of the Grim Reaper himself. '13 Steps To Nowhere' is dark and heavy, and 'Suicide Note part 1' is eerie, but 'Suicide Note part II' and 'Sandblasted Skin'are the most thrashing, screaming and insanely mental things Pantera have ever recorded.They also have a successful stab at stoner rock with 'The Underground In America'. This album has a massively brutal charm to it. Buy this, and 'Far Beyond Driven', and you will recognise the meaning of the word 'heavy'.
