The one and only breakdown, nothing more to say. - SilverBane
Danana danana danana danana, danana danana danana, who can forget that, I headbang to this all the time, unless I am told not to headbang, this riff is heavy as balls, Rest in peace Darrell Lance Abbott, we all miss you.
This one is from 1986 and it kicks ass! - SilverBane
One of the earlier ones, not quite a breakdown as we know it today, but certainly inspired the others. 1971! - SilverBane
Middle section is basically a breakdown. - SilverBane
Not many people besides Pantera fans know this breakdown, very heavy. - SilverBane
Little known song, it has a brutal breakdown in the middle and the ending. - SilverBane
Easily the best of all time, even better than Domination.
Still one of the heaviest of all time. - SilverBane
A rather unusual breakdown. - SilverBane
Not exactly a breakdown as we know it today but right before the solo it has a very cool rhythm. - SilverBane
After that insane solo and one more verse, this is one of the sickest sounding breakdowns ever, with those bends. - SilverBane
I think this is a very underrated band and the breakdown in this song is sick
Sick song overall
