Pantera news is always good news. The legendary metal band’s 2000 album, “Reinventing the Steel,” is being reissued in honor of its 20th anniversary.

The three-disc set features remastered audio of the original album, as well as a handful of rarities and covers of Black Sabbath’s “Electric Funeral” and “Hole in the Sky” and Ted Nugent’s “Cat Scratch Fever.” In addition to the remastering, the set also features a new mix from producer Terry Date, who worked with Pantera on a range of their studio albums, including “Cowboys from Hell,” “Vulgar Display of Power,” “Far Beyond Driven” and “The Great Southern Trendkill.”

“Reinventing the Steel,” the reissue, will arrive on Oct. 29, and the set will be available via CD and digital formats. A limited edition, two-LP package will also be available in January 2021.

In addition, a two-LP, 180-gram vinyl set will be available on Jan. 8, 2021. The vinyl is limited to 5,000 copies and comes in an embossed foil jacket. For more information and to pre-order the set, visit Pantera’s webstore.

“Reinventing the Steel” is a special album for Pantera, because it sadly turned out to be their last. The band parted ways in 2003, and brothers “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott and Vinnie Paul started a new band, Damageplan. In 2004, Dime was murdered by a fan onstage during a Damageplan concert in Columbus, Ohio, at age 38. Paul passed away in 2018 at age 54 of a heart attack.
