(TeamRock) Moby penned an article for TeamRock explaining why he loves Pantera's album "The Great Southern Trendkill" which he says makes "church-burning Norwegian Satanists sound like Sunday school teachers" Here is an excerpt:

The first time I heard Pantera was their [1994] album Far Beyond Driven. I always feel weird lumping Pantera into the speed metal genre. They were so qualitatively different from anyone else. They occupied their own niche.

The Great Southern Trendkill is so unrelentingly dark. The lyrics of War Nerve are the most unrelentingly evil lyrics you can imagine. They make church-burning Norwegian Satanists sound like Sunday school teachers. It's just that whole vituperative expression of anger and rage. Pantera even managed to be, dare I say it, kind of funky at times. One of the ways they were able to get such a huge guitar sound was because [Dimebag] Darrell double-tracked all his guitar parts.

I got to know Pantera a little too. I was in Dallas in 2002 and had a night off, so I can went to go see Tommy Lee perform. I'd known Tommy for a while, so we were just hanging out afterwards, when Darrell and Vinnie [Paul, drummer] came backstage with a bunch of Hell's Angels. We all started drinking, then went to the strip club which Pantera owned and we had this long, crazy, whiskey-fuelled night.

At some point, about four in the morning, Darrell, Tommy and I - in our completely devastated state - decided to form a band. We just thought that was the best idea anyone had ever had. Of course, nothing came of that - except a hangover that lasted for days. Read more here.
