Prime Cuts: Dimebag Darrell Chooses His 12 Favorite Tunes in 1993 Guitar World Feature
In 1993, Pantera's six-shooting Texas tornado pumped up his 12 favorite tunes.
"At Dawn They Sleep"
ALBUM: Hell Awaits (Metal Blade, 1985)
GUITARISTS: Jeff Hanneman, Kerry King
"Those guys have a real unorthodox style of playing — it's totally not normal. [laughs] They have unbelievable rhythm chops. Their songs taught me how to play with guts and aggression. The half-time feel on 'At Dawn They Sleep' is really cool, too. I like how they just start and stop out of nowhere, using no time to build up or wind down. They never give you a chance to get into a song: as soon as it starts, they're battering you over the head, hard and fast.''
