Pantera’s final studio album is celebrated with this 2-LP set, pressed on 180g audiophile silver vinyl, featuring a new Terry Date mix on one album, plus eight rare bonus tracks making their vinyl debut on the other. This collector’s item is presented in an embossed gatefold cover with printed inner sleeves.
Pantera’s final opus, Reinventing the Steel, represented a recommitment to everything the band loved about heavy metal. Released in 2000 at the peak of nu-metal’s popularity, the album’s back-to-basics approach flew in the face of the trend and served as a potent reminder of the enduring power of primal metal.
After several years of mounting friction, which hit a peak during the cycle for 1996’s The Great Southern Trendkill, Pantera pulled together and came out fighting with Reinventing the Steel. According to frontman Phil Anselmo, ‘There was a renewed level of brotherhood there and a renewed sense of enjoyment with the songwriting.’ Bassist Rex Brown added, ‘We chose our five favourite songs from each album we had done and picked apart what we liked about them. In that regard, Reinventing the Steel was kind of a rebirth for us. Everyone came to the table with what they thought was cool and what they wanted to do.’
