Pantera – The Great Southern Trendkill (1996)

Is this Pantera’s heaviest album? It certainly goes pretty fuggin’ hard at points. A clean as fuck production job by Terry Date and the lads allows for these heavy hitters (and the softer ones too) to really land. Bonus points for Seth Putnam guesties on track 1, although some of the later lyrics / themes are a bit cringe. Oh, and, the line “Lesbian love is accepted and right” in “Underground In America” is just fucking weird. Taken in and out of context I’m not really sure what Anselmo is on about.

I realised something else as well today, whilst spinning this again for the first time in many years: add some quirky keyboards to this and this is exactly what Mushroomhead was trying (and failing) to do with Saviour Sorrow.
