Polyphia paid tribute to Dimebag Darrell on what would have been his 56th birthday with a rousing cover of Pantera’s Cowboys From Hell classic, Domination, at their recent show in Boise, Idaho.

After tearing through both staples and newer cuts alike on August 20 at the Knitting Factory – including Champagne, Playing God and Neurotica – the Texas prog instrumentalists delighted fans with an encore, starting with New Levels New Devils banger G.O.A.T., followed by an impromptu rendition of the Cowboys From Hell classic.
