Pantera, Cowboys From Hell

£60.00

Shaking off almost a decade’s worth of toil in a glam-rock hangover, Pantera’s fifth album, Cowboys From Hell, not only revitalised their career, but more or less invented groove metal. So revolutionary was its sound – thanks in no small part to the emergence of late guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott’s unique style, but also singer Phil Anselmo employing a more aggressive vocal delivery – that both band and fans alike consider Cowboys From Hell to be Pantera’s true debut. Acknowledging the importance of Darrell’s evolution as a guitarist, he is placed front and centre on the album cover, while his bandmates run amok in a Wild West saloon (on the right-hand side, Anselmo launches himself off the bar, while bassist Rex Brown appears ready to fall through it; Dimebag’s brother, Vinnie Paul, flashes the cash to the left). After the tragic on-stage shooting of Darrell Abbott, in 2004, this artwork remains a fitting tribute to one of the finest metal guitarists of the 90s.
