(AUGUST 2010) – Envision Radio Networks®, Rhino Records and Full Metal Jackie are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Pantera’s Cowboys From Hell with a FREE one-hour special featuring brand new interviews with Pantera members – drummer Vinnie Paul, bassist Rex Brown, and singer Philip Anselmo.
The Full Metal Jackie Pantera Cowboys From Hell 20th Anniversary Special offers an exclusive sneak peek into the album’s 20th anniversary reissues (available in three different configurations), two of which are scheduled for release on September 14th via Rhino Records with the third slated for release on November 23rd. Full Metal Jackie will preview the newly remastered album along with hard-to-find demo and live tracks that have been freshly collected as part of the Cowboys From Hell 20th anniversary box set.
Pantera classics like “Primal Concrete Sledge,” “Psycho Holiday,” “Cemetery Gates,” “Cowboys from Hell,” “Domination,” and “The Will to Survive,” a previously unreleased track from the album’s recording sessions, are all part of the Cowboys From Hell anniversary releases.
“With so many killer songs, it was hard to pick and choose the ones that should make our major label debut,” says Vinnie Paul. “After hearing it [“The Will to Survive”] for the first time in about 20 years, it’s 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 Full Metal Jackie Pantera Cowboys From Hell 20th Anniversary Special will be available for broadcast September 3rd through September 19th, just in time for Labor Day weekend. Contact Matt Wardlaw at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216-831-3761 for broadcast details.
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.
