From that moment on, headbangs. Lots of them; way too many. The initial excitement was enough to trick my body into thinking my back was a part of my head and should henceforth bend as well.
But I'm not trying to oversell it, that was excitements fault. The song is about as good as your average kick-ass-and-chew-bubble-gum Pantera-y goodness can get.
Give it a listen.
I can't really talk about this track without doing it injustice. An easy way to sum up a B-side unreleased Pantera track is to know that you can't underestimate Dimebag. If you understand, you can just skip the next few paragraphs.
I really like the changes they go through here. It starts off upbeat, short with impressive guitar skills right off the bat before charging you in with those heavy riffs. From there it doesn't even matter what they do, that transition fuels awkward head movements for hours.
Oh, and once you get past the feeling of the final unreleased Pantera track, once you start paying closer attention to the lyrics, and once you feel the anger surge through your veins, you'll realize how bad ass it would be to chant along.
And then that just falls apart.
The single has been put up for sale as an mp3. I would've thought to put it up on vinyl too, for the extremely hardcore fans. That is of course a decently expensive idea for a single 4 minute track, so I understand.
Now if the song alone isn't good enough for you, make sure you get yourself Vulgar Display of Power. Piss was recorded during the make of it, and fits in quite snugly with all those amazing tracks. If you need to refresh your memories, think Walk, or This Love. Oh yes.
Patience however will pay off quite nicely. Come May 15th 2012 the 20th anniversary Deluxe Edition of Vulgar Display of Power will be released on a DVD/CD bundle, and it will include the lost track. If you can stand the wait, pre-order it.
