The Best Of Pantera: Far Beyond The Great Southern Cowboy's Vulgar Hits (Explicit)
Released: Sep 2003
The title says it all. The sixteen tracks here flex all the muscle Pantera beat down the competition with, from their debut in 1990 to their dissolution at decade's end. Newcomers will be positively floored by the unfairly dead Dimebag Darrel's snaking riffage and explosive solos, and then decked repeatedly by the he man-est of he-man vocals courtesy of Phil Anselmo. Pantera influenced nearly as many band as Metallica did, as can be felt even today in the "groove metal" scene typified by such bands as Chimaira and God Forbid.
