Call them the start and the finish of Pantera. Released 10 years apart, 1990's Cowboys From Hell and 2000's Reinventing the Steel stand as the bookends of the band's major-label career, which turned a generation of headbangers on to the undisputed power of Texas groove metal. For the 30th anniversary of the former and the 20th of the latter, our new cover story looks back with the trailblazing group's sole survivors — vocalist Philip Anselmo and bassist Rex Brown — on the albums that started and ended Pantera's wild ride.
For the diehard fan, we've created a special, deluxe, limited-edition box set featuring an incredibly detailed illustration by artist Adrian Baxter, known for his stunning work with Suicide Silence, Watain, Cloak, Bell Witch and much more. The package includes four bonus covers, which you can see below — one for each member of Pantera — that are exclusively available as part of the set. Plus, we'll throw in a complimentary one-year membership to Revolver, a $25 value! (The membership begins with the next issue.)
The new Spring 2020 issue also comes with alternate collectible covers featuring Lamb of God, Body Count, August Burns Red and Code Orange (available now via our store), as well as stories on Kvelertak, Loathe, Dana Dentata, Umbra Vitae, Machine Girl, Irist and Mexican black metal.
