One of THE definitive Metal Albums,
By A Customer
This review is from: Far Beyond Driven (Audio CD)
I only bought this recently, but it completely blew my head off. I'd heard their debut ( Cowboys fron Hell ) & I wasn't too keen as it kinda had the whiole 80's vibe to it that I personally dont dig that much, but by the time you get to this ( Their 3rd album ) things have changed completely. Phil Anselmo now screams and cries like a demented Max Cavalera while still writing clever lyrics to vent his rage, Dimebag Darrell is one of the most technically brilliant guitarists you will ever hear, but on this record he adapts and updates his sound, playing super heavy stuff, with less speed metal riffs and solos ( instead he saves the solos for when they sound good, not just playing 1 or 2 every song for the sake of it, but when he does play them, they sound even better.)Vinnies drumming is also greatly improved on this album, with a thundering onslaught using the double bass peddles. This is a revolutionary band, who set the pattern for every "Nu-Metal" band you will have heard in the last 5 years, but I can honestly say that none that I have heard are as talented musically, or write as great songs. Every song is a standout track. If I had to pick my favourites, 5 minutes Alone, Hard Lines & Sunken Cheeks, Slaughtered & Shedding Skin. BUY THIS NOW! You are unlikely to hear many better metal albums in your life, and none at this price!
