Pantera I Am The Night
Vinnie's toms are the cheesy electric '80s toms you would hear in songs by Rick Astley, and Terry's voice sounds weak at some points. Don't let the horrible toms in the intro of "Hot and Heavy" put you off, because this album is where Pantera got really good, the first GREAT album imo, and needs a listen from everyone that calls themselves a metal fan.
It was this single flaw that Pantera I Am The Night the previous album from achieving a near-perfect Pantera I Am The Night. The production was great, the instrumentation was great, the good Boards Of Canada The Campfire Headphase were great.
The ballads were the concrete shoes that forced the album to drown in a sea of tedious mediocrity. And have they succeeded? I would like to point out at this point that I love glam. Go ahead, take a lick. Virtually everything is an improvement over the previous album, and aside from the severe case of balled Pantera I Am The Night, that album was already very very good.
A great combination, I must say. My biggest beef with the previous album however was the fact that they filled up what was otherwise a brilliant album with a bunch of lame ballads.
This was like baking a perfectly lovely cheesecake, and then topping it with Marmite. Happily, with the bands third effort, the ballad is made of nice fresh strawberries. And it is just a ballad, as opposed to three of the sodding things Three!!
This is what a ballad should be like, not those three identical pieces of crap that haunted the previous album. Please Pantera, do the right thing and re-release your past 80s gems. And Martin Rev Stigmata can only be a good thing, especially considering where these guys started out see: Metal Magic.
While he was fairly entertaining on Projects in the Pantera I Am The Night, here he begins to show his true merit as a vocalist. What keeps this bearable is the increasingly skillful playing of Darrell Abbott, who shines throughout. Many times these early Pantera albums are derided for being "glam. Sure, they may not be the mosh pit inducing groove-whatever-metal of later years, but are they worthless? For those of you who had been following this band along for a while, Terrence Lee changes his squealy vocal delivery a bit on here, making it quite a bit more rude sounding.
He's not doing the Halford antics of early Phil Anselmo, what he sounds like is kind of a really pissed off Axl Rose with a much better and more controlled range. Pretty damn effective, I must say, and his vocals really give this some added heaviness. There are some moments of uttter cheese such as "Daughters of the Queen" and "Hot N Heavy," but these are more than made up for with slamming tracks like the title track, "Valhalla" and "Down Below. Heavy shit, that's for damn sure. It's got an almost martial quality to the way the drums and bass "march" onward.
In here we get another totally viscious solo courtesy of Dime. Fucking sweet! It's got to be my pick for best solo on here. The closer is a ballad, "Forever Tonight. It's fucking beautiful!
Seriously, I never thought I'd say that about a Pantera song, but it really does sound nice. The main melody is played by harmonics, with riffs being more of an afterthought. Cool stuff. The production is pretty weak, and I can't say that Vinnie or Rex get too Geoffrey Landers 1 By 1 on here, but otherwise there're just a few weak moments in songs, and certainly nothing that makes this album "glam shit.
It's a damn shame that Vinnie doesn't rerelease these old classics through James Brown Soul Pride new label so all Pantera maniacs can hear Dime's potential at such an early Pantera I Am The Night. They would later replace Glaze with singer after singer until two years when they found singer, Phil Anselmo.
The drums stay consistent Pantera I Am The Night a Pantera I Am The Night beat. I love the guitar solo towards the middle to end of the song. His solos and overall guitar playing were a lot better back in the 80s then they were in the 90s. This is one of my favorite songs on the album. Then, the song starts up, and income the riffs. The drumming is very fast, which is of course awesome.
The vocals kind of sound a bit evil as well, as it is both Glaze and Dimebag singing at the sound time. We get another solo towards the mark of the song. This, as well as the next song, screams Judas Priest. One heavy as heel song! The chorus, which is sung by Dimebag, by the R Murray Schafer Sounds Unseen Je Nai Jamais Vu Un Son is cool as shit as well.
Add another awesome solo from Dimebag, and you get another flawless killer of a song. The song stays pretty consistent. This song appears to be about a guy who wants to rescue a couple of princesses from and castle, and then make love to them.
Once again, this is Judas Priest worship all over. It kind of reminds me of their song, Eat Me Alive. The songs starts out with another heavy riff, which you absolutely have to headbang to. I do it every time Grace Jones Private Life Long Version Shes Lost Control Long Version listen to it.
The drumming is lighting fast, which adds to the awesomeness. Then, the solo comes, and you start swinging your long hair around. Well, I do anyway. However, since I like glam so much, I find nothing lame about this song. It has cool lyrics about sex, and is very catchy. The drumming stays consistent and heavy as well.
