Top Ten Best Pantera AlbumsChris113
The Top Ten
Cowboys from hell was a great album for sure hell there all good but vulgar is the best and right behind that is far beyond driven. I seen them play the far beyond driven album in chicago at the panel room. They had the best moshes right along with slayer these are difficult to do cause they all tear stuff up
Mouth for War... nuff said. That track alone makes it their best album.
Everyone will pretty much have different opinions on this list. It's not like a Megadeth list where 98% of the people vote rust in peace for number 1. All panteras albums are almost equal - Sabbath
Only good perfect album, by a band that take advantage of the 90s, far beyond driven its garbage same as the great southern trendkill, the other two albums are so so.V 13 Comments
They consider this one their first true album... and it has great songs like "Cowboys from hell", "Cemetery Gates", "Psycho Holiday", "Heresy", "Domination", "Shattered", "The Sleep", "The Art of Shredding"... - rock2metal
Not only is this their best album, I'd argue it's the best Heavy Metal album out there. I haven't heard anything like this and this was Pantera's peak.
Easily best pantera album the title tracks riff is arguably the best pantera riff ever
Cowboys from hell is in my opinion there best album should be number 1 then vulgar display of power at number 2V 9 Comments
This album honestly is my favorite. Cemetary Gates is my favorite song of theirs but besides Cowboys From Hell (title track) the rest weren't very good. Also 20 years old this year thought I would add that. 5 Minutes Alone and I'm Broken were two of their best songs both off this album.
Not sure if I prefer it over Vulgar Display Of Power, but it is definitely their heaviest album and beats Cowboys From Hell by a longshot. Still don't get why people don't think it has any sick solos, listen to Throes of Rejection..
Their heaviest album and where they finally perfected the Pantera sound. There are a lot of gems on this album.
Hard lines, I'm broken, and throes are beastV 8 Comments
Really? 4th place? Need I mention Floods, Suicide Note 1 and 2, War Nerve, Drag the Waters, basically the whole album?! This is metal at its finest, and Pantera at their most extreme!
The heaviest Pantera album. I love cowboys from hell vulgar display of power and far beyond driven, but this album is probably my most listened to pantera record
I like this album more than Vulgar Display of Power, my favorite is Cowboys from Hell, but this album is in another level, probably their most experimental album.
This one is my favorite. It has a psychedelic metal feel. I just would rather listen to this one than any of their other albums.V 8 Comments
Bought it the day it came out march 21 2000. Its still my favorite heavy metal album 14 years later. Ridiculously underrated. Great to hear Phil singing more. All 4 band members have said many times (darrell in 2004) that this album and/or vulgar are the best. The band took their time writing the album and it shows. Every song is heavy and groovy. brilliant record awesome tour (saw them 3 times). I urge those that dislike it to listen again. This is the album where they mastered their sound in my opinion.
This album should be number 2 or 3 way better album than great southern and far beyond maybe just maybe even better than cowboys from hell
Not the best album in my opinion (Great southern trendkill is my favorite) but should be higher up due to the new sound it brought.
The best and the most mature albumV 4 Comments
It's actually fairly decent especially when compared to Metal Magic and Projects in the Jungle.
Some of the songs are quite good.
Sounds like a mix between Priest and Shout at the Devil era Motley Crue. - Chris113
In my opinion this should be higher cause this is the one GOOD heavy pantera before they go groove.V 1 Comment
Greatest hits albums don't count
Not as Glam as the first two albums, and has some elements of Speed Metal and Heavy Metal. - Chris113
