Another uncompromising album from the masters of metal
on 2 June 2000
After a four year gap following their last studio album, Pantera return as hard as ever. Reinventing The Steel is exactly what you expect from the band; incredibly heavy rock, with the now-trademark 'powergroove' feel. Pantera have not softened their approach; in fact they continue the trend of getting heavier with each album they release. The only minor criticism of this album might be that no new directions are explored; some of Dimebag Darrell's guitar work on the splendid 'Revolution Is My Name' has an unusal and distinctive 70's rock feel, but this is about it in terms of sound progression. Nevertheless, you don't buy a Pantera album if it's the latest trend you're after; you buy it becoause you know it will ROCK. And this one certainly does.
