Dimebag Darrell has landed. Metallica, Megadeth & Slayer have 2 guitarists and Dimebag has Pantera sounding larger than these bands with Far Beyond Driven.
Dimebag is another legend that has many tricks in his riff bag that highlight this album.
However, lyrically, this album is a hodgepodge of personal issues regarding stunted emotional growth, childish behavior, southern bullshit rage and has absolutely no logical direction of the songs.
I hope to piss off a few Pantera fans as this is an album where a bunch of randomness was put together and Southern Texas bullshit was applied.
This band and albums are nothing without the Abbott brothers. RIP Dimebag and Vinnie Paul.
Here is the track listing...
1. Strength Beyond Strength 2. Becoming 3. 5 Minutes Alone 4. I'm Broken 5. Good Friends And A Bottle Of Pills 6. Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks 7. Slaughtered 8. 25 Years 9. Shedding Skin 10. Use My Third Arm 11. Throes Of Rejection 12. Planet Caravan
Platty's Editor Note: I can only muster 3 out of 5 squirts of venom even though Dimebag shreds!
