Do you believe in miracles? PANTERA fans do. Since being started just over a week ago, an exciting new cause launched by TMD on Facebook has quickly gained 500 members. The cause is calling for Dimebag Darrell’s last studio tracks (meant for the 2nd Damageplan album) to be instead produced as the final studio record by the legendary Cowboys From Hell. Join HERE.
Vinnie Paul went on the record earlier this year with Face Culture to say he indeed plans to release the drum/guitar tracks as a special tribute album one day that would feature guest vocalists only. Lame, huh? That’s why an an army of diehard Pantera fans support the idea to not do that and use them as the last and final word from one of metal’s all time greatest bands!
The most genius thing of this whole idea when you think about it is that Rex Brown and Philip Anselmo would not even need to be around Vinnie Paul to lay down their bass and vocals. They could go into the studio separately from him to get the job done.
How could these tracks be heavy enough to even attempt using them as Pantera songs? It’s well known that the first Damageplan record consisted of many rejected Pantera demo songs after Reinventing The Steel. In a nutshell… Damageplan music was always Pantera music. Dime said it himself about these unreleased tracks in November/2004 a month before his tragic on stage murder:
“We are gonna be blatant about Vinnie and Dime and the drums and the guitars. It’s gonna be a thorough ass-kickin’, and extremely brutal.”
