A previously unreleased track recorded entirely by former Pantera and Damageplan guitar legend Dimebag Darrell has been released.
The country-tinged rocker “Whiskey Road” was recorded by Dimebag in 2001 as Pantera were wrapping up what turned out to be their final tour.
“Whiskey road, take me home and wash away the pain,” he sings. “Whiskey road, leave me whole and wash me clean again.”
December 2014 saw the 10th anniversary of Dimebag’s death, shot whilst performing live on stage with Damageplan. Former bandmate and Pantera vocalist Phil Anselmo recently wrote about the incident: “The way he went out, using the word ‘murder’ is always a stark, cold, hideous thing. None of this shit gets easier for me. It actually keeps getting tougher and tougher. For me, personally, I’ve yet to come to terms with it. I don’t see the sense. I don’t see the everything-happens-for-a-reason attitude. This year is the toughest yet.”
