Pantera: The Great Southern Trendkill (Rhino)

pantera

Pantera’s fourth major-label album, 1996’s The Great Southern Trendkill, was the band’s most aggressive, most intense album; twenty years later, it has lost none of its potency. Yet in retrospect, it feels like it should have been the band’s final statement, the high note that should have been used to bring the increasingly unhappy and dysfunctional band to a close.
