A two-disc 20th Anniversary Edition of Pantera‘s Far Beyond Driven will be released by Rhino on March 25, 2014, and is available for pre-order now.
The album, which was the band’s seventh studio offering, debuted in 1994 at #1 on the Billboard chart — an amazing feat for a metal record — and then stayed on the chart for seven more months. Following in the crushing aural assault of their previous record, 1992’s Vulgar Display of Power, Far Beyond Driven contains the standout tracks “I’m Broken,” “5 Minutes Alone,” “Strength Beyond Strength,” “Becoming,” and a cover of Black Sabbath’s Planet Caravan all performed by singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist Dimebag Darrell, bassist Rex Brown, and drummer Vinnie Paul.
