The third official compilation album by legendary American Groove Metal band.
While the tragic 2004 death of Pantera guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott will prevent a full reunion from ever taking place, the Texan cowboys from hell are back with a pair of history-scouring releases. First of them is "History Of Hostility".
"History Of Hostility" is a nine-track compilation that provides is one of the best possible primers for those looking to learn about Pantera. It features inclusions from all five of Pantera's studio albums, so you can tell that there's been a concerted effort to cover the band's career in as even-handed a fashion as possible: you'll get material from "Cowboys From Hell", "Vulgar Display Of Power", "Far Beyond Driven", "The Great Southern Trendkill", and "Reinventing The Steel".
If you've never delved into the Pantera catalog, then "History Of Hostility" is definitely a much better place to start!
