Floods. Another reason why Dimebag was a legend on guitar. Made some of the best metal riffs.
Right On The Edge and Heavy Metal Rules riffs are very nice, love them.
I am so tempted to order the 80s Glam albums on Ebay. As a music fan it would be awesome to have those in my collection.
I'm, as you probably know, not huge on glam metal. Or even glam rock. But I do enjoy Pantera's glam albums well enough. They're pretty cool and show the seeds of greatness.
I used to fantasize about forming a Pantera tribute band some day and the encore "we" did was always Power Metal. ahahaha
Would have loved to hear Phil sing it just once in the 90s. While the high-pitched falsetto thing he did in those days (and CFH) obviously fits the tune better I think his gruff heavy voice would sound awesome on the track as well.
I'm also a little curious why Kerry King from Slayer was hanging out with these guys even back when they were glam!
Never saw their early days as glam...though they had a couple glam photos....sort of. But they were power metal as the song says. Riffs that you hear in European metal...then and TODAY!!
Here's the studio version. Actually his voice (as well as the style of this song) is alot like Dan Beehler from Exciter
Nice to see some love on the web for Pantera - they were so important to me through my teenage years of metal discovery. I once read a review of a live gig they did in a mag somewhere, the photo was of Phil centre stage, foot on monitor, mic in hand, sneering at the crowd. The caption read "Pantera - A f*****g heavy metal band". Summed it up perfectly for me.
Happy birthday to the late Dimebag Darrell.
Absolute legend guitarist. RIP brother.
Happy Birthday Dime!
I picked up "Far, Beyond, Driven" at the weekend on CD (I am trying to boost my CD collection again and move away from downloads). Spent most of Saturday afternoon taking one massive and very enjoyable trip down memory lane.
