@hater_guy: Yes, that was "The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys' Vulgar Hits!", but I'm not exactly sure if it was released with or without the band's consent.

And before that there was Reinventing Hell. When did I buy that? December 8th 2004 :O

This is probably a record company thing and I doubt any of the band members will promote it or have any input.

I'd still like to have it though. Most of my Pantera CD's are in pretty bad shape and some got stolen so it'd be nice to have everything I need to replenish at a fair price.

I'm 100% sure it's the label's doing more than the surviving members' decision (do they actually have any control over the material?), plus do you see Vinnie, Rex and Phil sitting around having a chat about a "Best of" package?

Pantera is in the same boat with Alice In Chains and many others. Every 2 years their ex label puts a new collection on the market, whatever they decide to call it ("The Best of", "Collected", "Live", Rarities" etc)

RTB- if you're a diehard fan go get the original discs and not a greatest hits, because there will be great songs left off of a gh album.
I did have a chance to see 2/3...no original Sepultura for me either. Did see Sepultura in 2000 with Slayer and Sevendust though.

I'm interested to hear the first 3 albums with a remixed/remastered treatment, especially Cowboys from Hell. The natural volume on Cowboys is a little low, so it would be cool to here it on a CD or a record at a volume that's equal with more recent releases. I hope they do the re-releases on vinyl. It sucks it stops before Great Southern Trendkill though, that album rarely gets the credit it deserves imo and any new fans that they may gain from things like this might miss out on Trendkill.

All Pantera fans already own all the albums. They're a most have!. Totally unnecessary to rerelease a greatest hits album....again! I guess some one is running low one some cash and desperation calls for a pay check.

i bought the best of Pantera about 6 yrs ago and felt like a total tourist for doing so
that said Pantera answers to no one
they're true legends
as it has already been said this is more a contractual obligation than a statement

I bought the last greatest hits basically for the DVD. Since then I've had CFH and Vulgar stolen so I'll probably pick up the remasters. It would be cool if they did a Live DVD, I'd buy that.

Nekro those are now referred to as the dark ages lol. That would be a jokes release though and at this point would sell more then this CD will. Why would they release ANOTHER greatest hits?...and why are there two articles about this actually lol.

it's funny how a lot of people aren't happy about this whole new greatest hits album.. so what if it's for money.. or whatever you think!

if your a real pantera FAN you would be happy for them..
and maybe the guys won't promote it or whatever, it's still gonna be awesome to go to the store and pick it up..

And I bet Pantera has nothing to do with the "Best Of" album, apart from maybe having the options to throw in few suggestions for the album title.

As for the remixed albums, I'm all for it. Both Cowboys and Vulgar are a bit.... well, let's say that they could sound better
