Collection celebrates album’s 30th anniversary
Pantera has announced the launch of a special collection in celebration of their critically acclaimed album Cowboys From Hell, which was released 30 years ago on July 24, 1990. The album, would become the band’s breakthrough record. Cowboys From Hell has since attained platinum certification in the United States and has been praised by critics as one of the most influential albums on the metal scene in the 1990s. IGN named Cowboys From Hell the 19th most influential heavy metal album of all time.
The collection, available via Pantera’s webstore, features brand new merchandise including a 30th anniversary Cowboys From Hell long sleeve shirt, tee and hoodie, a limited edition mirrored pint glass, and most notably, an RIAA Personalized Platinum Plaque.
Pantera is regarded as one of the greatest metal bands of all time. The uncompromising quartet of singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, his brother, drummer Vinnie Paul and bassist Rex Brown quickly rose to massive global success in the 1990s with multiple gold and platinum albums, sold out tours, ferocious live performances, and four Grammy nominations. To this day, many of their metal masterpieces remain the cornerstones of heavy music, including Cowboys From Hell, Vulgar Display Of Power, and the Billboard No. 1 album Far Beyond Driven. The Texas foursome continues to inspire multitudes of fellow musicians while garnering millions of insanely devoted fans worldwide. Although the band would disband in the early 2000s, Pantera’s unparalleled legacy endures as landmark tracks like “Walk” and “Im Broken” continue to be embraced by new generations every year.
