iTunes Review

Pantera had made four ’80s-style metal albums before they took a sharp turn toward muscular, bullying thrash on this 1990 breakthrough. Hints of the old tradition are still audible, and “Shattered” suggests Iron Maiden or Judas Priest to the 10th power.

On top, Dimebag Darrell’s shred-crazed solos on monsters like “Domination” and the Metallica-worthy epic “Cemetery Gates” complement Phil Anselmo’s enraged, tonsil-tearing growl to a tee.

The preeminent metal band of the early to mid-'90s, Pantera put to rest any and all remnants of the '80s metal scene, almost single-handedly demolishing any notion that hair metal, speed metal, power metal, et al., were anything but passé. Loathe to admit it, the Texas band had in fact been one of those '80s metal bands, releasing fairly unsuccessful (and later disowned) glam-inspired music throughout much of the decade. The about-face came with the addition of vocalist Phil Anselmo, and the key...
