Cowboys From Hell
Label: Rhino Atlantic
Cowboys From Hell was the first place any of us heard the raunchy, utterly distinctive and totally rad guitar playing of unfairly dead Dimebag Darrell. Phil Anselmo was a force of his own here and anyone who claims to like metal has to admit that even though Pantera won fans in the millions they were the real deal. There wasn't much music heavier than this in 1990.
