“The Great Southern Trendkill” was released in 1996 to some critical acclaim. Not only Pantera‘s eighth studio album, but widely considered their most aggressive to date and the first to feature Drop G downtuned guitar work. By this point in their career there were growing tensions in the Pantera camp (allegedly due to the Abbot brothers taste for Whiskey and Anselmo’s hunger for Heroin) which
