    So you chose to list 4 of the big 4 of thrash - what about all the hundreds of clones of those bands from that era that tried to sound the same that nobody remembers? I'm sure a thrash fan today would be able to find 4 new bands that sound different from each other.

    There's plenty of bands with unique sounds and styles now, just as there's always been a bunch of bands trying to copy well known bands.

    I've never been a huge fan of Pantera, and especially this song is a good example of the type of tough guy bullshit that I find really tiresome.

    When I first heard Pantera, I really didn't like the way the guitar tone sounded. I remember describing it as sounding like an "ice pick." I forget what the song was, but it wasn't one of their more famous ones.

    I love Dimebag's playing style, both for rhythm and lead, but I still am not a fan of his tone. I just don't strongly dislike it anymore. I'd say "Dimebag's rhythm tone" (I actually like his lead tone somewhat) was the weakest element of Pantera.

    What I meant was bands sounded different, bands that mattered of course. Today I very much doubt any of this would even pass among the "Tone Purists" if they showed up right now as something new. Sure some of this Tones become legendary but because they were made in the past not in the present. They were "allowed" back then... not today.

    THIS IS EXACTLY what I mean when I'm saying:

    TONE = is in the gear
    PLAYNIG STYLE = is in the hands




    But people keep saying "ooooh, the tone is in the haaaands"

    Everyone sounds the same because everyone DOES sound the same. Watch Rig Rundowns and count how many 5150s and 6505s you see. Get a 5150, run it into a Mesa, mic it with one SM57, BOOM, metal tone! There's way less experimentation now than there was back then.
