Pantera To Reissue Last Three Albums on Vinyl
Pantera fans have been rejoicing in the 20th anniversary reissue of ‘Vulgar Display of Power‘ and the emergence of the lost single ‘Piss‘ for a good portion of the spring, but that’s not the last thing we’ll see from the legendary metal band this year.
Rhino has announced plans to reissue the group’s last three albums — ‘The Great Southern Trendkill,’ ‘Official Live: 101 Proof’ and ‘Reinventing the Steel’ — on 180-gram vinyl July 24.
Each of the releases will be presented in gatefold jackets, with the first two disc serving as double LPs that retail for $24.98, while ‘Steel’ comes as a single LP for $17.98.
‘Trendkill’s’ vinyl will differ from a previous vinyl edition in that it now includes the track ‘Suicide Note Pt. 1.’ In doing so, it ensure that the release had to be expanded to a double-disc. ‘The Great Southern Trendkill’ would become the band’s fourth platinum album, yielding the singles ‘Drag the Waters,’ ‘Suicide Note Pt. 1,’ and ‘Floods.’
‘Official Live: 101 Proof’ would follow, serving as a live document of some of the band’s biggest hits like ‘Walk,’ ‘Cowboys From Hell,’ and ‘Cemetery Gates.’ The set also features a pair of studio recordings: ‘Where You Come From’ and ‘I Can’t Hide.’
As for ‘Reinventing the Steel,’ the disc topped out at No. 4 on the Billboard Album chart, and featured the singles ‘Revolution Is My Name’ and ‘I’ll Cast a Shadow.’
