$5 MP3 Album Deal: Pantera ‘The Best of Pantera’

This month Pantera‘s The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys’ Vulgar Hits! is available as part of Amazon’s mammoth 1000 MP3s for $5 each deal.

It’s hard to overstate Pantera’s influence on the heavy metal landscape. Phil Anselmo‘s harsh, aggressive vocals bouncing on Dimebag Darrell‘s razor-sharp guitar licks all riding on bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul‘s impossibly heavy groove gave metal a much needed kick up the you-know-what. They originally began as a glam metal band (good luck finding those first four albums), but it was their work of the late “˜80s and early “˜90s that warrants your attention on The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys’ Vulgar Hits! including tracks such as “Cowboys From Hell,” “Mouth For War,” “5 Minutes Alone,” and “Revolution Is My Name.”

Browse all 1,000 albums on sale this month for only $5 each, as well as several albums on sale this week for only $2.99 each.

‘Dimebag’ Darrell: 7th Anniversary Of Pantera Guitarist’s Death

Former Pantera and Damageplan guitarist “˜Dimebag’ Darrell died 7 years ago today. His murder was a story which shocked the whole rock and metal music world.

Finally settling on a line up encompassing lead singer Phil Anselmo and bass player Rex Brown, Pantera began as a glam metal band before changing their plan of attack with their seminal heavy metal album Cowboys From Hell in 1991.

Judas Priest Ram Down ‘American Idol’

I despise American Idol. It goes against every fiber of belief I have in music. The Simon Cowell Cookie Cutter Factory of creating “stars” really gets on my last nerve. Despite my negativity towards the-show-that-distracts-millions, I can’t help but write about it at the moment, because metal gods Judas Priest made a guest appearance on the series finale the other night – and blew the whole show out of the water with a great performance, which you can view at the bottom of this post.

My hatred for American Idol aside, you have to admit that this is a good move for Priest in the publicity department. As reported here numerous times, the band are about to embark on their farewell tour, and making an impressive appearance on a show like this is a good way to get the word out beyond the regular fan base.
