    Ahahaha, well that's how the majority that even know who we are probably think. Lucky thing have started charging 20 years ago and now Portugal exploded in Turism so probably the entire World knows or have heard of us. Spain tried to rule us many times but kept getting their asses kicked all over until one day we lost our 14 year old King on a battle in North Africa (body never found, new studies suggest Spanish imprisoned him as anonymous) and the bastards took power and ruled us for 60 years. That until a bunch of Nobles decided it was enough and throw out of the windows the count in charge in Lisbon yes they literally did throw him into the mob outside

    Then the Spanish decided it wasn't worth it anymore ahahaha.

    Once a Roman Emperor or general said: There are this people in Lusitania /how it was called our region) that dont rules themselves but don't allow other to rule them, inf act to be conquered by the might Roman Army our pastor chief that reunited all the tribes had to be betrayed for the Romans to get him, we did guerrilla warfare against the Roman Army, Ambushing them and slaughtering them with stones on no exit canyons

    I like all of Pantera's music. Cowboys is sick, but the other albums have inspired some really shitty bands even If I dig the albums themselves.

    Eh... I have so much to say on this subject but I don't know if it's worth the energy

    If I try to remain objective, and ignore the fact that I'm a massive Dimebag fan, it's quite clear to see that the dude was just a big dumb sweetheart. Look at interviews, read editorials he wrote for Guitar World... The guy's a self-proclaimed "spaz" (something he'd be equally as denigrated for saying these days). He really wasn't the cleverest guy, bless him. No evil. None. You can tell he just loved what he did, loved people, and was just a bit too much of a simple Texas boy to understand the wider impact of his surroundings.

    The flag thing, ugh... Wishful thinking tells me it was more for geographical pride than any sociopolitical connotation. I hardly think the man was capable of thinking about it that deeply. I'm sure someone probably told him it was inappropriate, and I'm equally as sure that his defense was "huh? I'm from Texas, boy!"

    Too ignorant, too simple, frankly too dumb to shake his cultural upbringing. I'd be incredibly surprised if any of it was done with any real malice.

    Actually it's about coming back from a long tour cycle after the initial success of CFH, and realising all Phil's friends had changed their behaviour towards him.

    It's about channeling anger.

    This was from an incident where a fan got injured at a show, and their father went after them in the media, and was quoted as saying he'd like 5 minutes alone with them (to kick their asses)

    This is about insincere people, snake-like personalities, liars etc. To "drag the waters" means to do some digging on someone, where-in you may find some shonky business going on.

    This is just a cheesy ode to heavy metal.

    Yes, this is just a "look how great we are" track. But it's fucking great.

    Nice try(s) though

    My favorite part of 'Walk' is where Rick Beato didn't talk about it. That shit rocked.
