1.0 awfulPedro B. | April 23rd 10

If you never thought you'd see a song called "Ride My Rocket" on a Pantera album, boy, do we have an album for you!

"Metal Magic" sees the Texas quartet, then led by terrible singer Terry Glaze, embark in a piss-poor brand of hard'n'heavy with shameless glam overtones. There's even an attemptive ballad with keyboards! The songs veer between the unremarkable and the god-awful, often directly ripping off KISS, an admitted influence for the Darrell brothers. Heck, "Ride My Rocket" itself rips its title off an Ace Frehley song and its music off "Detroit Rock City"! The sad part is, it doesn't get much better from there, causing this album to be almost completely worthless. The only nearly acceptable song is the title track, whose riff hints at what would come years later.

Unfortunately, there would still be two more albums of this tripe before Pantera came to their senses, switched Glaze for Phil Anselmo, and set about redefining thrash metal. Avoid.

Pantera sounded so different in their early days. Their debut (glam style) is rather poor with stupid vocals, weird drumming and common bass lines. Guitar sounds ok and the solos are good. We shouldn't forget that the founders of Pantera Vinnie Paul and Dimebag Darrell were inexperienced and very young at that time, i think 19 and 17 respectively. However Dimebag shows some potential.

Pantera before they were Pantera, brings the laughs.

IN THIS DAY AND TIME...OF METAL MAGIC...WE NEED...ROCK AND ROLL...WE NEED...PANTEthis is fucking terrible. The title track's riffage is actually slightly neat but the vocals are so bad they can't earn this album a half point.

Guilty pleasure at best. The guitars make it just about listenable and there's a few spots that I enjoyed, but the lame lyrics, mediocre drum and bass and piss poor production (even for its time) just means it gets old quickly.

Probably the greatest album cover ever made. Well the dudes needed to start somewhere, right? RIP Dime.

This was way before cowboys or vulgar also 1983 whole different time period and the music reflect that as well.You can hear all the influences april wine,motley crue the snyths similar to journey and lover boy.Other than that not so bad for a recording of a bunch of guys only in their teens even darrel was kicking ass on guitar back then.And of course i prefer the heavier pantera over this but it's a nice start to say the least.

Just what the heck is this album supposed to mean anyway?. The worst thing about it is the album cover itself. Makes no sense whatever, The songs don't mean anything.
