Pantera Cowboys From Hell on 180g 2LP Set from Warner Bros.
Cut from the Original High-Definition Masters
Spread Over Two LPs for Ultimate Sonics: True Audiophile Sound
Features Boundlessly Influential Playing of Late Legendary Guitarist Dimebag Darrell
Pantera's Essential Vulgar Display of Power and Far Beyond Driven Also Available on 180g 2LP
Pantera's 1990 major-label debut Cowboys From Hell was as heavy as anything of its day and served as both the band's breakthrough and a great influence on metal music. Featuring the guitar virtuosity of Dimebag Darrell and the vocal ferocity of Phil Anselmo front, Cowboys From Hell turned Pantera into the preeminent metal band of the early '90s and put the remnants of the '80s metal scene to rest. Highlights include "Cemetery Gates," "Psycho Holiday," "Primal Concrete Sledge," and the searing title track.
Having long commanded upwards of $100 for a vinyl copy on eBay and long out of print on LP, Warner Bros.' impeccable analog reissue of Cowboys From Hell is cut from the original analog masters and boasts extraordinary sonics that present the punchiness, definition, impact, and edges that have forever been absent on all prior editions. This pressing lays waste to the flat-sounding CD and will challenge the limits of any stereo system. Brilliant!
"As for the sonics? The improvements are tenfold. Songs are airier, punchier, and more immediate. The soundstage boasts deeper grooves and better instrumental separation, which adds to the overall musical impact as Pantera’s brief pauses serve to amplify and augment the aggressive passages. Vinnie Paul’s bruising percussion booms, the snare and bass drum coming across with muscularity and presence."
