Overview

Where The Great Southern Trendkill experimented with slower, moodier pieces, Reinventing the Steel finds Pantera sticking to the pulverizing basics of their sound, with the first down-tempo, nondistorted guitar part appearing on the next-to-last track, "It Makes Them Disappear," and vanishing about 15 seconds into the song. In the tradition of the group's best albums, Reinventing the Steel is a nonstop assault on the senses, offering no respite from the intensity until the album has stopped playing. Yet somehow, it comes off as a cut below their best albums; perhaps it's that the band's sound lacks the sense of freshness that sparked Cowboys From Hell, Vulgar Display of Power, and Far Beyond Driven, or perhaps it's simply good in a very predictable way (contrary to its title). Yet even if Pantera is firmly entrenched in a signature sound, it's a distinctive, highly effective signature sound that most of the band's fans don't want to hear changed; plus, Dimebag Darrell is still one of the most inventive guitar players in heavy metal. The bottom line is that the way you feel about Reinventing the Steel will likely depend on whether you object to more of the same; if not, then the lean focus of its attack -- the most concise, actually, since Vulgar Display -- will make it more than worthwhile.

Reinventing The Steel is PANTERA operating full force. This is there first studio album in four years and was well worth the wait. Being one of the only true bands out there today PANTERA takes their all for the fans never sell out attitude to a new level with Reinventing The Steel. This cd is a must have for not only the true PANTERA fans but for everyone. Be sure to catch PANTERA at ozzfest this summer cause the only thing better than this cd is the live show.

Really angry album! There is no lousy tracks! All the songs are probably made with time. Espeacially tracks "Hellbound", "I'll cast a Shadow", "Revolution Is My Name" and "Goddamn Electric" are good ones. If you like good riffs check this out!

This thing is the kind of things that only the bands that create a sound that is still alive over the years are capable to do, this album is the best album of the milenium.

No band has (and most likely never will) achieve the thunderous crunch of Pantera. They are as heavy as concrete. As solid as stone. As eternal as the Lord Himself. They will never sell out (like Metallica) and will be JAMMED to for years to come. Let me tell you all something. Im 22. When I was 15...I wanted something that was carved in stone...a favorite.....a CLASSIC.........something as heavy as I liked it....PANTERA met my wishes when I thought no other band would come through...THEY HAVE BEEN MY FAVORITE AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE UNTIL SOMEONE (OR SOMETHING) SURPASSES THEM. THANKS PHIL, DIMEBAG, REX, AND VINNIE, FOR A LIFE WORTH LIVING...bruce

Almost nothing in life is pleasing, and even less lives up to expectation. This new Pantera EXCEEDED my expectations, which I didn't think was possible. This is the second best cd they've done after Far Beyond Driven. Every song works. Southern fried speed metal Sabbath thrash is what this is. Thank god some people still care about making this music. Totally impressive. This is a must.
