Dimebag Remembered

Though Pantera are certainly not as prevalent on my playlists these rdays, Dimebag Darrell rAbbott's influence remains. A good man, a rgreat musician, and essentially a legend in the rworld of metal. rThese are some of my favorite Dime moments from each of Pantera's rlater ralbums. (hair metal isn't real)
Cowboys From Hell

"Cowboys From Hell" -- intro (0:00 - 0:50) -- One of the coolest riffs I've heard in music to this day.//////////////////////////// "Domination" -- outro (3:00 - end) Intense.//////////////////////// "Shattered" -- The whole song is fantastic guitar wankery that somehow works.
Vulgar Display of Power

"Mouth For War" -- (0:12 - 0:30) Great lead-in and one of my favorite Dime riffs. (3:06 - end) The whole band goes into overdrive.//////////////////////////// "A New Level" - the solo. comeon. no-brainer////////////////////// "Hollow" -- (2:48 - 3:17) Takes it from a ballad to a brawl with an unsettling guitar line. The outro is also one of my favorites.
Far Beyond Driven

"Strength Beyond Strength" -- (0:00 - 1:09) The first time I heard this song, it was the best chaos I'd ever been exposed to. Probably a big contributor to my eventual search for math metal.////////////////// "5 Minutes Alone" - All/////////////////////////// "Slaughtered" - The main riff in the beginning and so forth.
The Great Southern Trendkill

"Floods" -- (3:03 - end) The start of this tune is entirely too boring, but the pay off begins about midway through the song and leads to one of the most memorable guitar solos in the genre. Also, the final notes are gorgeous.///////////////////////// "Sandblasted Skin (Reprise)" -- (2:31 - 3:00) A simple, but absolutely venomous diddle with the Abbott brothers sounding like they're actually having blast playing off each other.
Reinventing The Steel

"You've Got To Belong To It"-- (0:09 - 0:21) Great use of a whammy.////////////////////////////////////////// "Revolution Is My Name" -- (0:45 - end) Ignoring the fact that the beginning is just, for lack of a better word, bizarre; this song is packed with awesome guitar parts.
