    Dude, this is bad A$$…. Sounds like Phil playing with Slipknot and Dime and EVH’s love child on lead. This album is gonna kick major ass, but would you expect anything less from Phil fuckin Anselmo..?

  • true

    i think it fuckin sucks and phil is worn out…dime sucked too


    dude I was reading all the comments………. and wht the fuck…… PANTERA was the best band of all fucking time…… Dimebag was the best fucking guitar to ever walk this fucking earth and he always will be…. they ALL revolutionized metal, so check this out…. this song fucking jammed, and if u don’t like it then fuck off and go listen to ur studio bullshit emo fucking metal u asking Alexandria fags………. Down, Damageplan, hellyeah, kill devil hill, and all of phils new shit is fucking epic…… they are the only few who get to the point of there music, and I am going to be sad to see the day they are gone, because they are what is keeping metal alive….. all this nue metal is fucking garbage……. all of u who disagree do not have true love for real fucking metal, and I feel pity on all of you


    to the idiot that said Dimebag sucked, you clearly have no idea how talented and influential he was. Plus, he was the nicest person I ever met (famous person).

    WTF is wrong with people??

    DIME should be beaten with a brick?!?!?!????????

    We no longer live in a civilized society.

    Phil AND Dime are two of the nicest and most down to earth people you will ever meet. Phil with one of the most BADASS metal voices of ALL-TIME and Dime WAS one of the metal FUCKING LEGENDS.. DO — NOT get that twisted.

    PanterA 4 LIFE
