^yeah I know what you mean,.. I would have bought a shirt too, but I'd rather a Pantera shirt. Dime has my deepest respect though, and maybe my post came across wrong as well. But all good Hey btw you're from melbourne as well

Pantera is one of my favorite bands, but I really didn't like Damageplan.

yeah,.. I didn't get the RIP Dime shirt for that 13-year-old reason. I mean, one of my mates, who's an old-school punk asked this chick with a pink "Ramones" shirt "so, you like the Ramones, huh?".. and she was like "oh yeah, it's my favourite brand of clothing"...

I can see how people say that Dime was overrated, because he had his style, and he stuck to it, but never really ventured outside of what Pantera was, and i don't think Damageplan really gave him justice as a guitarist. But he was damn good.

What really gets me is how people tend to put Dimebag in the front to the point where it overshadows the entire band. Because it was all of them that made Pantera the influence that they were. Phil is a kickass singer, and you can especially see that on the first two albums, where he demonstrates just about every vocal style he's capable of. He has a great range, and a number of techniques at his disposal that suited the music. Rex was a good bassist, although what he played wasn't overly complicated. That was for a reason, and the bass still comes through as a force - it's there to create the base that Dime and Phil could go crazy on. And Vinnie Paul's drumming is also good. He has a good feel, and his drumming is really precise, but at the same time is full of ear candy - off beats, and what not. When you hear him drumming you can't mistake it.

What I really loved about guitar in Pantera though, is Dime's tone - it was complete aggression and brutality in rhythm, and really really tight, and then the solos opened up, and sounded almost as if the guitar was singing. Plus he made his clean tones sound really sinister and dark.

^chill out dude, it wasn't directed at you, since you obviously like your metal and what not. I was referring to n00bs that have a very limited idea who dime was, and heard like two songs, but then they go out and buy the shirt and like "yeah I"m so kool"... you know the ones I mean

CFH is where it's at, with Trendkill being a second. The problem with the other albums IMO was that they were kind of inconsistant, one song will crush and one would suck (IMO, like Walk). I got really obsessed with them for a while, but the original impact faded somewhat. Great band, albiet flawed.

Dime was fucking killer, regardless of the mallcore kids who worship him as a trend. While he deserves the respect and reverance after his death, it's not that metalheads over-do it, it's that the mallcore kids first getting into metal put him on a pedestal like a god when they know nothing about metal and use Dime to pretend like they do. That's the bad part.



I hate those kids. When they see my guitar (a Dean ML, not a 'Dime' signature either just the plain 79 series) they say something about Dime. And yet, they can't name one Pantera or even Damageplan song. Can't tell me anything about him, other than he's dead and his name has something to do with weed. Yet they say he's cool. Quite sad. I love Dime to death, have eversince I was 11 and heard Pantera for the first time but damn. These people didn't have a clue who he was the day he died. Not till a few days after and they saw it on MTV. Stupid fucks. Rant rant rant.

OK let's see, Dimebag Darrel was a blues/metal player, IMO he had everything. I have a recording of him playing Little Wing live and 'twas great, he gave it his own solo. OK so I see where all these Black/Death metal guys, or whoever, are going saying that Dime wasn't the greatest or he's underrated. But soloing isn't everything, he wrote those riffs with his ****in' soul. I bet you if we could talk to him he'd say he was happy with what he did with his life and wouldn't change anything.

Note: Don't see that as a Dime "necrophiliation" session. I'm just stating what I thought Dime stood for.

Now, for the band....they owned but I wish Anselmo wasn't such a pussy.

So... what are the best songs from Vulgar Display of Power, well apart from Hollow and Mouth for War.

I also agree with the brilliance of the solo on The Sleep, i also think of solo on The Art of Shredding is quite good.
#112
Rise is pretty good, although it does sound a little hardcore on some bits.

Then there is Walk, of course.

there's definitely at least one true thing in this post: when Dime wrote the riff, he put his soul and heart right in it, and you can hear that come through.

One thing I do love about Pantera is how Vinnie and Dime locked in together - not only it was tight, it was a brutal combination. PLus Vinnie's magic accentuated what Dime was doing and vice versa.

I thought it was interesting that for a big part of Pantera's sound, it was pretty much just ass-kicking metal, with wailing solos infusesd with blues, and driving rhythms - the music pumped adrenalin if you know what I mean. But Phil's lyrics were a lot darker - with every album it seemed to get more so. Anyone else agree?

I'm saying this mainly because if you notice, The Great Southern Trendkill is markingly different - while the songs on it are awesome, and it still has the signature riffs and what not, the music is more sinister, slower in some parts, and overall has a different feel. Funnily enough it's also the only Pantera album not to have the Pantera logo on the cd. And Reinventing The Steel was more of a return to VDoP/Far Beyond Driven sort of thing

about TGSTK, yeah, the Pantera logo is on it. in big ****ing letters. but thats a minor detail hahahaha.

but i do agree about Phils lyrics. Thats one reason i do like the later albums moreso than the earlier ones. theyre just darker albums on the whole. and i dont think Dime needs any more emphasis... his impact is just plain ****ing obvious. however, although i like Vinnie Paul, i dont think he was near as key to the sound as was Dime or Phil... i think they were the true keys to the music. not to discount Rex or Vinnie... they were great too, and of ocurse, a band really makes good music based on the chemistry between its members, which, in this case, is evident.

yeah man. whenever i'm getting ready to play some soccer with friends, i usually listen to; walk, mouth for war, i'm broken, and shredding skin. really, really good songs to get pumped up to. IMO.

^^x2 Yeah, Dime and Phil seem to be where the main sound comes from, but it's the tight rhythm section that makes it effective IMO, especially with all that stop/start stuff.
#119
i love the live versions of sandblasted skin, the real version is annoying sounding
throes of rejection is also great
the sleep-brilliant solo
floods-also brilliant solo, and brilliant song
im broken-also a great song and a really fun song to play and it seems to impress people, and has an easy solo

IMO, cowboys from hell is the best album
great southern trendkill is awesome, but not something i could listen to over and over lol
FBD is great as well and vulgar display of power i have yet to hear all of the songs. i love walk, rise, this love, and ****ing hostile though
