Pantera And Mastodon Announce Metal Club Releases

Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Pantera's "Cowboys From Hell" album with the special Limited Edition Collectors vinyl release of "Cowboys From Hell: The Demos." This special piece has a custom cover and demos of the Cowboys From Hell tracks, as well as "The Will To Survive." This release is limited to 3,000 copies and only available at participating Metal Club stores starting on Black Friday (November 26).

Pantera fans will also want to check out the "Cowboys From Hell Ultimate Box Set" on November 22. The three-cd box set includes custom artwork and a 60-page booklet with rare photos, expanded liner notes and replicas from the Cowboys era including New Years Puke Party T-shirt - designed by Dimebag Darrell, multiple flyer reproductions, laminated passes, sticker, button and a newly re-mastered copy of the original Cowboys album along with unreleased and rare live performances from the era, and unreleased demos for nearly every album track.

In other Metal Club news, those who previously missed their chance at obtaining the limited edition deluxe "Worrmhole Tunnel Box Edition" of Mastodon's latest album "Crack The Skye" are in luck. The group will make 600 copies of the limited-edition release available through retailers on December 7th as part of Metal Club.

The set, which originally sold out during the pre-orders for the album's original release, comes housed in a hard box case. The elaborate packaging encompasses a tunnel book that, when looked through, reveals three-dimensional-like imagery.
