As you know from our regular “Doing a 180” posts, we’ve made it a point to reissue classic albums on 180-gram vinyl on a regular basis, but we’ve got one coming up tomorrow that we thought was worth mentioning prior to its actual release, if only because it’s one of the most important live albums in alt-rock history.
20 years ago, Pantera released the eighth studio album of their career, and it remains one of the most intense, hard-hitting LPs in their catalog. To celebrate this momentous anniversary, we’re reissuing THE GREAT SOUTHERN TRENDKILL in a very special 20th anniversary edition that may actually rock harder than the album did in its original release, and while we can appreciate why you might be skeptical of this claim, just wait ‘til you see the track listing.
