BUT some of the BSides are wayyyy better than some tracks that made the cut.
If you wanna rec some, that'd be grand. I have a lot of time for certain RHCP.

they sound better than every monotonous death metal band in this countdown.
How many of those were there?

Kinda funny, because Pantera is such an overrated metal band for me (they had a couple of good albums and that's about it). I mean, if you can't see how something like Soilent Green's A Deleted Symphony for the Beaten Down absolutely schools their best stuff, then you just aren't looking hard enough. Leave that Lamb of God nonsense alone and check out some really good records like that one. I'll send you the album when I send you your gear I grab in Poland.
I dunno dude. I like to think I look pretty hard at my heavy music. ;)
I loved Sewn Mouth Secrets
, as a kind of 'just Pantera's heavy bits' record. I don't think they ever touched the best Pantera stuff.
It's interesting to read the post about Pantera as a gateway metal band, because I've known a lot of people who go through the Pantera phase. Me? The older and more 'mature' I get, the more I love those 1994-96 albums. The band is actually under-rated among people who don't live in the southern states now.
