Pantera reissue Cowboys from Hell: The Demos for Black Friday

on November 26, 2010, 12:00pm

Long known as the busiest shopping day of the year, Pantera is about to make this year’s Black Friday the darkest yet. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Cowboys from Hell, the album’s being re-released as both a limited edition, 180-gram vinyl, and a three-disc Ultimate Collection.

Available today, the Ultimate Collection definitely lives up to the billing. It features a 60-page booklet with rare photos, expanded liner notes, and replicas from the Cowboys era: a New Year’s Puke Party T-shirt designed by the late-”Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, multiple flyer reproductions from the era, a “Fucking Hostile” button, all-access tour pass ’90 fabric sticker, “Cowboys From Hell Texas Guest” laminated pass , a “U.S. Tour ’91″ all-access laminated pass, and a ticket reproduction from June 14, 1991.

And no collection is complete without a pressing of Cowboys From Hell: The Demos. Limited to 3,000 180-gram pressings, the vinyl includes the custom cover and demos of the original tracks, as well as the previously unreleased demo cut, “The Will To Survive”. The vinyl is available exclusively at Metal Club stores nationwide. And you thought the mob waiting for those Tickle Me Elmos was dangerous. Check out each release’s tracklist below.
