Since Phil Anselmo joined Pantera they had gone from strength to strength with sales increasing for each subsequent album and along with their worldwide reputation as a devastatingly violent and energetic live act; this album was highly anticipated in the barren metal years of the mid-nineties. The pressures of success had however, along with excessive alcohol consumption, exhausting touring duties and Phil's drug problems, caused a rift in the band and the recording of this album was anything but a smooth process. What this in-fighting, drug addiction and despair with success spewed forth was one of the most powerful pieces of pure hatred, attitude and anger filled music ever to come out of the American deep south.

Rating: 7 This has some heavy shit on it

Rating: 8 Without doubt, the heaviest and angriest album that Pantera put out. Its far from perfect, but in it's best moments, its a searing, furious album. And of course, it contains "Floods" which features a truly magical solo from Dimebag. <3

Rating: 8 Definitely heavy. Good, energy-packed album.

  The ballads like "10s" and "Floods" are what saves this album from being mediocre, those songs are up with Pantera's best material. You can tell they had been listening to Soundgarden and Alice in Chains and this is their take on that style but with the trademark Pantera aggression.

INdeed. Okay, it's probably their weakest but from being a disaster.
Metropolis_Dream - 15.04.2013 at 19:19  
  Very good album, but their weakest from the 90s. "13 Steps to nowhere" and "Floods" are my favourites here.
Nick K. - 20.06.2013 at 18:58  
  Their most aggressive effort, not as promising as the previous two Albums, but hey, its still Pantera. "Floods" managed to be one of their best Songs ever.

Rating: 8 Floods's outro destroys universes.
deadone - 21.02.2014 at 00:19  
Rating: 8 Yeah Floods is a phenomenal song.

Personal favourite is Suicide Note Pt II - that's some extreme shit.

This is the Pantera album metal-archives will tell you is their best. Haha. They try to experiment a lot here, and are clearly fresh out of ideas. Inner turmoil was starting to set in here, and so were Phil's drug problems, and it shows. Easily, the most filler of their prime era releases. Still some nice Dime riffs to be had though, so it's not completely worthless.



Whilst I agree with your assessment, I can't help but really enjoy this one when I listen to it!

Those two songs are my faves on the album. "Floods" is just beautiful, whilst "Suicide Note Pt II" is a searing cut which sounds totally demented, but in a good way!

I actually went a little hard on it, I just re-listened to it all the way through and there are indeed some really great moments. Dime is still great and Phil is in good form, for the most part. Maybe a high 6 or 7 ranking.

Disagreed heavily. I for one find this much better than both Far Beyond Driven and Reinventing The Steel. The anger makes it more palpable (and interesting) than either of those albums.

Far Beyond Driven has some shaky moments, but Dime is still a riff machine on that album. All in all, I find Trendkill more patchy and the filler is scattered throughout in my opinion. I'm sorry I wasn't even counting Reinventing the Steel, I admit I haven't listened to that one enough to judge it.

Rating: 8 Been listening to Trendkill last few days, my score has went from 6 to 8. I stand corrected, damn fine album, better than I remember. Now for some Reinventing the Steel.

WHAT?! A different opinion!?! KILL HIM!!¡!



Serioulsy, I'm not a big Pantera Fan, but this is okay. I agree with the earlier comment about filler, which is the problem with every Pantera release.
