As A Three-Disc Deluxe Edition  With Rare And Unreleased Demos And Live Tracks

Includes Previously Unreleased Track, “The Will To Survive”
Recorded During The Cowboys Sessions

Two-Disc Expanded Edition Also Available; Both Set For Release On September 14

Ultimate Edition Featuring Replica Memorabilia
From The Era Available November 23

LOS ANGELES – PANTERA found its growl and groove on COWBOYS FROM HELL, a landmark album whose bone-powdering intensity, razor-sharp riffing and pummeling rhythmic assault represented a turning point in modern metal when it was released in 1990. More than just PANTERA’s major label debut, many consider this album to be the official debut of the PANTERA lineup with singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul and bassist Rex Brown.

To celebrate the 20-year anniversary of COWBOYS FROM HELL, Rhino rounds up a three-disc Ultimate Edition, a three-disc Deluxe Edition, and a two-disc Expanded Edition. All three editions include a newly remastered version of the original album along with unreleased and rare live performances from the “Cowboys From Hell” Tour.

The Ultimate and Deluxe Editions will also feature a disc of unreleased demos for nearly every album track, plus, “The Will To Survive,” a previously unreleased song recorded during the album’s sessions.

“’The Will To Survive’ is a great track. With so many killer songs, it was hard to pick and choose the ones that should make our major label debut,” says Paul. “After hearing it for the first time in about 20 years, its a pretty stellar performance and I am definitely proud that it will see the light of day for all the die hard PANTERA fans around the world! It shows the true musical diversity of the band at that time!”

The Deluxe and Expanded Editions of COWBOYS FROM HELL will be released September 14 at all retail outlets, including www.pantera.com and www.rhino.com. The Deluxe Edition will be available for a suggested list price of $29.98 (physical) and $17.99 (digital) and the Expanded Edition for $19.98 (physical) and $12.99 (digital).

The Ultimate Edition will feature all three discs included in the Deluxe Edition and will be housed in an intricate box including several replica memorabilia pieces from the Cowboys era. The Ultimate Edition will be available on November 23 and final pre-order details, as well as the contents, will be unveiled soon on PANTERA’s Facebook page <http://www.facebook.com/Pantera>.

Along with the remastered version of COWBOYS FROM HELL, all three sets include a disc of live music recorded during the tour for the album. It begins with seven unreleased performances from PANTERA’s September 15, 1990 appearance at the Foundations Forum metal convention in California, a show recorded for radio broadcast but never released commercially. The remainder of the disc contains the five-song EP Alive And Hostile, a collection of performances recorded in 1991 at the Monsters of Rock festival in Moscow that was previously available only in Australia as part of a 1994 boxed set.

The Ultimate and Deluxe Editions of COWBOYS FROM HELL include a third disc that contains the previously unreleased “The Will To Survive,” along with demos for 10 of the album’s 12 songs, including early versions of the title track, “Psycho Holiday,” “The Art Of Shredding” and “Cemetery Gates.”

After being turned down “twenty-eight times by every major label on the face of the earth,” ATCO Records A&R rep Mark Ross saw the band when Hurricane Hugo stranded him in Texas. The rest, as they say, is history, including another seven years and over a million miles of touring for COWBOYS to be certified Platinum (one million album sales) by the RIAA.

The album’s liner notes include essays by each of the band’s surviving members, producer Terry Date, and the aforementioned Ross. Recalling the first time he saw Pantera, Ross writes, “By the end of the first song, my jaw was on the floor. The sonic power of it all—the attitude and the musicianship—blew me away. Basically, you had to be an idiot to not think they’re amazing. I mean, how could you see these guys and not think, Holy shit!?

Phil Anselmo on the “ramifi-fucking-cations” of the BP Oil Disaster

July 21st, 2010
Phil Anselmo

Phil Anselmo

Invisible Oranges recently caught up with the former Pantera vocalist. Below is is awesome rant about the BP Oil Disaster. Read the complete interview here.

How is New Orleans doing now with the oil spill?

Anselmo: We ain’t seen the fuckin’ beginning of the repercussion. I think the tip is fuckin’ rearin’ its head, but how can it not? There’s fucking crude spilling out right as we speak here on this motherfuckin’ phone. What can I do about it? What can anybody really do about it? Go to the fuckin’ water and clean animals and birds? It’s not solving the fucking problem.

This right here, this knife in Mother Earth is [a] bleeding fucking wound in our planet, which in my book is God, by all rights. You got God stabbed in the fuckin’ heart. And it’s bleeding. We have not even begun to see the miserable ramifi-fucking-cations of this fucking particular disaster yet. Shit, hurricane season hasn’t really even moved in.

As a matter of fact, by the time the next year rolls around, everything on the Gulf Coast – not just New Orleans, but the entire… it’s not even a tri-state area; you lump Texas and everything into this fuckin’ thing, anything that can be affected by this Gulf – and you blow in fuckin’ oil all over the motherfuckin’ every standing structure… let a big hurricane roll through and blow oil all over every tree, house, car, fuckin’ animal, oh my god – and let it dry up for a fuckin’ week. Then flick a fuckin’ cigarette out. See what happens, with fuckin’ oil all over the place. This place will be torched faster than a motherfuckin’ box of matches, man, and gasoline.

Philip Anselmo of Housceore Records, Down, Pantera, etc.

March 31st, 2010

Philip Anselmo of Housceore Records, Down, Pantera, etc.



Interview by Shawn Jam Hill


It was with great trepidation that I picked up the phone at 5:30 PM EST on Wednesday, March 10 2010 because I knew the (supposedly) mercurial Mr. Philip Anselmo himself was on the other end of the line. After spending years fronting one of metal’s greatest bands of all time (Pantera), starting up the lumbering behemoth know as Down, feuding with his Pantera bandmates, losing his best friend Dimebag Darrell to a crazed gun-toting nut in 2004 and subsequently being denied access to the funeral while generally leading a rock and roll lifestyle that famously nearly killed the man, maybe Philip wasn’t too keen on jawing with some nobody journalist way up in Canaduh.

I was wrong.

Speaking thoughtfully (some would say quite slowly) and seemingly choosing his words very carefully, Philip Anselmo spoke as would a true Southern gentleman. He told stories, rambled on a little here and there and even had a laugh or two during our 35 minutes on the horn that was (theoretically) set up to promote upcoming releases on his own Housecore Records imprint. In reality, it was a good old fashioned chin-wag.

Pantera – Vinnie Paul

September 4th, 2005

Pantera’a Vinnie Paul
Interviewed by Keith McDonald in Jan 2001

 

Pantera – Reinventing Metal
Pantera has become the band that never goes away, the party that just doesn’t end. Despite almost no radio, MTV or other vital musical outlet support, Pantera have to their credit four Platinum albums, three Gold home videos and have grabbed two Grammy nominations in their ten year history. Their rise to the top is nothing short than miraculous. Non-stop touring and incredible live shows have allowed Pantera to accumulate a large loyal following of metal-heads all across the globe. They have recently released Reinventing The Steel, possibly their hardest offering to date and are getting ready to continue their world tour following the freak injury to singer Phil Anselmo. I had the opportunity to speak to Vinnie Paul who filled me in on what’s been going on in the Pantera camp.
