Pantera – Walk

|

Pantera was an American heavy metal band from Arlington, Texas, formed by the Abbott brothers, Vinnie Paul (drums) and “Dimebag” Darrell (guitar), then known as Diamond Darrell, in 1981. Bassist Rex Brown then known as Rex Rocker would join in 1982, with vocalist Terry Glaze. In 1987 Phil Anselmo would become the group’s lead vocalist, completing the band’s most successful lineup that would remain together for 16 years. Pantera’s style changed by the late 1980s. The band subsequently became a key formulator of the post-thrash metal subgenre of groove metal. It would not be until nine years after forming that the band saw its first piece of commercial success in its 1990 major label debut, Cowboys from Hell. From there, Pantera became one of the most celebrated heavy metal bands of the 1990s. Despite the generally cold reception of the band’s first four albums from the 1980s, critics have lauded Pantera’s style thereafter; Jason Birchmeier of Allmusic.com states that “there was no greater metal band during the early to mid-1990s than Pantera.” The band has received accolades such as ranking 45th on VH1’s list of the “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock” and fifth on MTV’s “Top 10 Greatest Heavy Metal Bands of All-Time.” ________________________________________ Can’t you see I’m easily bothered by persistence One step from lashing out at you… You want in to get under my skin And call yourself a friend I’ve got more friends like you What do I do?

Aerosmith – Walk This Way

|

OMG!! SICK VID!! 😀 www.youtube.com 10000 likes for more Aerosmith? =) More than 2 million views now! “Walk This Way” is a song by American hard rock group Aerosmith. It was written by Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. It was originally released as the second single from their 1975 album Toys in the Attic. It peaked at Number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early 1977, part of a string of successful hit singles for the band in the 1970s. In addition to being one of the songs that helped break Aerosmith into the mainstream in the 1970s, it also helped resurrect their career and revolutionized the new hybrid sub-musical genre of “rock and rap”, or the molding of rock and hip hop music when it was covered by rappers Run-DMC in 1986 on their album Raising Hell. It became an international hit and won both groups a Soul Train Music Award for Best Rap – Single in 1987. The song was also covered by the UK girl groups Sugababes and Girls Aloud as the official Comic Relief single in 2007. In 2010 it was confirmed that UK singer Melanie C will release her cover version of the song in late 2010. The song starts out with the famous two measure drum beat intro by Joey Kramer, followed up the equally famous guitar riff by Joe Perry. The song then goes into the verse, with a steady drum beat and bassline by Tom Hamilton forming as the backbeat, with dueling guitars by Joe Perry and Brad Whitford. Though not verified, it is believed by some that an uncredited guitarist contributed to the song
