defleppardgroupblue400 Def Leppard have confirmed that they will release an extended version of their groundbreaking 1996 album Slang next month.

The deluxe edition, released via their own Bludgeon Riffola label, includes a second disc of previously unreleased tracks, demos and alternative versions.

Slang was their first record with guitarist Vivian Campbell following the death of Steve Clark in 1991. The album saw Def Leppard reacting to the grunge era by moving away from the ultra-polished sound masterminded by Mutt Lange – and although it didn’t sell as well as had their previous records it has come to be regarded as their most underrated work.

The new version comes in CD and digital formats, both including the album’s 11 original tracks plus the additional material. An iTunes edition contains more bonus tracks, while a double-vinyl version also contains exclusive songs.

The Slang Deluxe Edition goes on sale on February 10th.

pantera400 Pantera reached a major milestone in 1994 when the legendary metal band’s seventh studio album, Far Beyond Driven, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, becoming the fastest-selling album of the group’s career and its second consecutive platinum release. Not only a commercial success, the album also earned positive reviews around the world for the beautiful brutality of its all-out sonic assault.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of that landmark album and Rhino is celebrating with a special two-disc version that includes a newly remastered version of the album, along with a live performance from the 1994 Monsters of Rock Festival. Far Beyond Driven: 20th Anniversary Edition will be available on March 25th for a suggested list price of $19.98. A digital version will also be available.

Following the breakthrough success of 1992’s Vulgar Display of Power – which has since been certified double platinum – singer Philip Anselmo, guitarist Dimebag Darrell, bassist Rex Brown and drummer Vinnie Paul returned in March 1994 with Far Beyond Driven. Following its #1 debut, Far Beyond Driven remained on the Billboard album chart for seven more months and many still regard it as the heaviest album to ever top the chart.

Its 12 songs represented a continuation of the previous album’s relentless musical onslaught with hard-hitting tracks like the first single I’m Broken as well as the mosh-pit classics 5 Minutes Alone and Slaughtered. Another standout track was the group’s swirling acoustic cover of Black Sabbath’s Planet Caravan, which became a live favorite when Pantera hit the road to support the album later that year.

Fans already familiar with Far Beyond Driven are in for a treat with the second disc of the 20th Anniversary Edition. Dubbed Far Beyond Bootleg-Live From Donington ’94, the disc contains Pantera full live set recorded at the Monsters of Rock Festival in Donington, England on June 4th, 1994. The 40-minute show comprises nine tracks taken from the band’s three most recent albums including: Use My Third Arm and Strength Beyond Strength from Far Beyond Driven, Walk, Mouth For War, and This Love off of Vulgar Display of Power, plus the title track from Cowboys from Hell as well as the live staple melding Domination and Hollow.
