Pantera – Piss (single)
Hard to believe that 20 years have passed since the release of Vulgar Display of Power, but alas time flies when you are rotating in the mosh pit of life. So, it was with pleasant surprise that I find this “new” song out by Pantera, that will be added as a previously unreleased bonus track for the deluxe anniversary edition of Vulgar Display of Power.
I’m pleased that Vinnie Paul found this track in the vault, but I have to wonder why it was left out. Perhaps for time limitations then on CD’s, since most artists were still in the LP limit length of two sides? It would have fit in well, with Phil’s screaming, Vinnie’s tight drumming, Dimebag’s soaring guitar work, and the steady bassline. One reviewer on Amazon.com claims that it was put together from pieces and recorded more recently. Vinnie Paul claims that it is not, according to Blabbermouth.net. Plus, Phil and Vinnie Paul’s days of working together are pretty much over.
For 99c how can you go wrong – this is a must have for any Pantera fan. Buy now and download or wait for it to come out on the reissue of Vulgar Display of Power.
Listening notes: Purchased and downloaded from Amazon.com, because Itunes sucks. Listened through stock built in speakers on my Lenovo R61e laptop. Will be listened to a lot more in other places. Rock on!
