Song of the Week-13 Steps to Nowhere
Posted by RiffRaff
This weeks Song of the Week comes from one of the most legendary metal bands of all time, F’n Pantera. “13 Steps to Nowhere” comes off of the album The Great Southern Trendkill and shows why Pantera will forever be known as one of the most aggressive metal bands to date. Highlights on this song is Vinnie Paul’s excellent drumming and as always Dimebag Darrell’s unique brand of guitar abuse. Contributing to the backing vocals on this song is the recently deceased Seth Putnam of An*l C*nt(RIP, thanks for the extremely offensive but often hilarious song titles and god-awful cacophonous racket you called music you horrible excuse for a musician).
The Great Southern Trendkill was Pantera‘s angriest album and also their most personal with songs tackling Phil Anselmo’s battle with hard drugs, suicide, and straight up hatred for the media. Along with being the angriest it was also their most experimental album with songs such as “Floods” and “Suicide Note Pt. 1” using keyboards and effects and “The Great Southern Trendkill” going all out with the doubletracking of vocals and an insane amount of guitar layering.
Enjoy, Peace Love and Metal
