The Toadies had a monster hit in 1995 with “Possum Kingdom.” The parent album, Rubberneck, sold a million copies…then the band disappeared. Actually, they recorded a follow up, Feeler, which the record company rejected, killing the band’s momentum and sending them back to the drawing board. They eventually broke up in 2001. After a successful reunion album, No Deliverance, in 2006, they’ve decided to revisit the old songs from 13 years ago; the songs that were inexplicably seen unfit to release.

It’s been 20 years since the release of Pantera’s landmark “Cowboys From Hell.” To celebrate, they’ve put together a deluxe 3-disc collection, featuring the entire album remastered, a disc of demos and a third disc of live material, recorded during the ensuing tour. But, the real treat of the collection is an unreleased Pantera song called “The Will To Survive.” Icon Fetch catches up with former Pantera bassist Rex Brown and gets his thoughts on the new set, and it’s place in metal history. He also gives his reflections on the loss of bandmate “Dimebag” Darrell, and updates us on his new project, Arms of the Sun. Click below for the Rex Brown Pantera interview.
