Pantera Far Beyond Driven 180g 2LP
180g Vinyl Cut from Original High-Definition Masters!
Critics writing about Pantera fall over themselves in search of adjectives to
describe the fiercely independent foursome: “Boot kicking” “A Metal massacre”
“Crushing” “Searing” - the list goes on and on.
Pantera's incredible rise to the top of the metal heap has been nothing short of
miraculous when you consider they’ve made their historic climb with virtually no
radio support or MTV exposure. With 4 platinum albums under their belt, 3 gold
home videos and 2 Grammy nominations, Pantera are finally garnering the
recognition they deserve. Relentless touring since 1990’s breakthrough album
Cowboys From Hell, has seen them go from local Texas phenoms to mortifying
trailblazers of the legendary Ozzfest. Touring with their idols was one of the
highlights of Pantera's career.
Now, fans can re-experience the good old days of the hell-raising Pantera's
music with three early releases, 1990's Cowboys From Hell, 1992's Vulgar Display
of Power and 1994's Far Beyond Driven.
Far Beyond Driven took Pantera's music to an even heavier and more extreme style
than on previous releases; settling for a continuous, slow chugging, mid-tempo
groove throughout the album.
Far Beyond Driven may have been the group's fastest selling album due to a
couple of reasons - the first of which is that it followed the
genre-defining "Vulgar Display of Power"; the second reason may have been due to
the controversial original cover that was in such poor taste that it had to be
replaced with an alternate image of a skull being drilled into. Whatever
the reasons for the quick and high volume of sales, the album features extreme
heavy metal songs such as "Becoming", "Shedding Skin" and "Slaughtered".
These displays of aural overloading could hold their own in many a heavy metal
