Thanks for the impetus. It must have been 15 years since I last listened to that version of the song, or seen its weird video for that matter. Strangely, I share the same opinion as yours here, and that is regardless of the fact I eventually concluded that Pantera and this new post-thrash sound just would not suit my tastes. I decided to stick to the bloody roots as those Brazilians would have said, contrary to the way ironically they actually decided to take off. Needless to say, I'm been disgruntled for quite some time now.
At any rate, those preferences are nothing to worry about. However had you said that you have something for the cover of Holy Diver played by Killswitch Engage over the original, then you would certainly merit being called the lowest of reprobates.
