THIS NEVER-BEFORE-RELEASED DIMEBAG SONG IS TRULY “TWISTED”
As if last week’s debut of a previously-unreleased Pantera song, “Piss,” wasn’t enough to make all the Dimebag Faithful get blackout drunk with joy, this oughta do the trick: the just-unearthed “Twisted” is basically a Dime solo track, with the guitarist even going so far as to handle vocal duties (not shocking — Dime was actually a pretty good singer, and his live backing vocals attest). Metal Insider observes that the song “sounds like it could’ve easily been a Rebel Meets Rebel tune,” although there are some heavier, more Pantera-esque sections, too, not to mention a nifty Dime solo. Check it out:
You can download the song from CDBaby.com. And as you can probably tell from the video, it’s not being released now for no reason — it’s part of an effort to promote a new Dimebag skateboard (pictured above), which is being made by Dimebag Hardware in association with Elephant Brand Skateboards. You can order one here.
