ABOUT NEWCOMERS ANTI-MORTEM:


What the American Hard Rock and Metal scene needs right now is an infusion of youth and some new blood coursing through its veins. Enter ANTI-MORTEM and their upcoming debut album, New Southern. Formed in 2008 and with over 300 shows already to their name, the combined average age of this Oklahoma quintet is just 21-years-old. ANTI-MORTEM were raised on Southern Rock & Heavy Metal and driven by a hunger to make an impact.

The band dole out bottom-heavy and groove-laden anthems with every track and infuse a modern sense of melody that is the signature trademark of all the Metal greats they’ve learned from. Also present and accounted for: southern swagger in spades, courtesy of the band’s roots and upbringing.

REBEL MEETS REBEL – 2006 Supergroup And Album Of David Allan Coe And Cowboys From Hell – Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Rebel Meets Rebel - DAC - CFH - promo cover pic - #123

______________________________________

During breaks from their full-time touring and recording, from 1999 to 2003, three-quarters of the iconic PANTERA (Vinnie Paul, Rex Brown and Dimebag Darrell) joined Metal forces with the legendary Country Outlaw, David Allan Coe, to form a band and record an album appropriately called: Rebel Meets Rebel  (Big Vin Records). D.A.C. and CFH (Cowboys From Hell). A new brand of Metal was born!

I remember like it was yesterday, when I bought Rebel Meets Rebel! I was happier than a farm hog in a pit of stinky hot mud, as I trotted out of my local Super Walmart with this CD in hand. Hell, this was a CD that boasted the guitar prowess of (the late) Dimebag Darrell! From the first moment Nothin’ To Lose started playing, I knew this supergroup was beyond special! I played this CD multiple times everyday, for at least a year! That’s how much I enjoyed this CD and STILL DO enjoy it!

Crank Up Nothin’ To Lose!! Hell Yeah!!

Rebel Meets Rebel is a keeper for life, for me. This CD is so rich with the spirit, vibes and sounds of Country/Southern Metal that it’s dizzying to put into words! Believe me, I consider it a blessing that these four legends decided to record these twelve songs together. It’s just so sad that Dimebag Darrell was not here to see Rebel Meets Rebel released; as it was truly embraced by his fans and climbed the Billboard Album Charts.

From many a PANTERA interview and article I’ve read over the years, combined with this CD’s liner notes, Dimebag Darrell was a huge fan of David Allan Coe. I can understand why. David Allan Coe’s resume speaks for itself and his rebellious songs are stuff of Country Music legend. David Allan Coe’s vocals just comes across as his being one tough son-of-a-bitch and gritty Rock ‘N Roll outlaw, while he surely savored every moment, on every song this CD has to offer! David Allan Coe is credited with writing all the lyrics for these songs as well.

Dimebag Darrell is superb on guitar, his licks and riffs being so freaking heavy as shit! When anyone ever asks me what Country Metal is, I respond: Rebel Meets Rebel and D.A.C. with the CFH! Vinnie Paul and Rex Brown are (of course) terrific on drums and bass, respectively. Man, as I write this, I get so pissed off that Dimebag Darrell was taken from us all; he never deserved to die so young and so violently by a psychopath. As fans, we are truly blessed to have the music that Dimebag Darrell has left for us.

My favorite song (out of favorite songs) on Rebel Meets Rebel is: Cowboys Do More Dope. I just love, love that song! It’s a song that puts me in a freaking great mood in a micro second! It may not be the fastest Metal song ever; yet it’s one of the heaviest of Metal songs I’ve ever enjoyed, time and again! To paraphrase what David Allan Coe writes in the liner notes: this was to be the first time that the Country and Metal genres were to fuse in such a circumstance; however, Metallica and Garth Brooks get credit for doing it first. It figures. Despite how the timeline of events happened, as David Allan Coe wrote in the CD’s liner notes: “we are the real deal as they say, we are the Cowboys From Hell, that’s for real.”

This Rebel Meets Rebel CD is the real Metal deal; it’s a thick and potent slice of imperative Metal history that can never be forgotten!
