Power Metal Album Tracklist




The Beginning of a New Direction | Reviewer: Chris A. Jimenez | 9/5/13

And...Phil Anselmo appeared.

They were sick of Terry Glaze's obsessions; while "Dimebag" and company wanted to play a kind of tougher "heavy metal", subsisting lot of "thrash metal" bands, he only sought with a "hair/heavy metal" musical group.
And the boys couldn't stand him to any further extent so...Phil Anselmo appeared. And the result doesn't changed their principles; well, "POWER METAL" sounds wilder and stronger, thanks to Mr. Anselmo voice. It seems to me that he wanted to be like Rob Halford when he screamed (and that's impossible).

The blows are the same: intense "heavy metal" hymns like "Rock the World", "Proud to be Loud" (co-written by Marc Ferrari) or "We'll Meet Again" (an unknown Phil); the approximations to "thrash metal" and the later style of "COWBOYS FROM HELL" "Over and Out", "Power Metal", "Burn!" and the adjustment of brutal "Down Below". A rarity: "P.S.T.-'88", where "Dimebag" sang in it. It was the initial blastoff of a new direction along the music business to this band.
