Pantera

The preeminent metal band of the early to mid-'90s, Pantera put to rest any and all remnants of the '80s metal scene, almost single-handedly demolishing any notion that hair metal, speed metal, power metal, et al., were anything but passé. Loathe to admit it, the Texas band had in fact been one of those '80s metal bands, releasing fairly unsuccessful (and later disowned) glam-inspired music throughout much of the decade. The about-face came with the addition of vocalist Phil Anselmo, and the key turning point was the band's major-label debut, Cowboys from Hell (1990). Pantera's mainstream breakthrough came next with Vulgar Display of Power (1992), their second major-label album, which thrust the band to the forefront of the metal scene, alongside such veteran bands as Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax, as well as fellow up-and-comers Sepultura and White Zombie. By the time Pantera unleashed Far Beyond Driven (1994), after two long years of touring, they were the most popular metal band in the land: the new album debuted atop the Billboard Top 200 as its lead single, "I'm Broken," was getting massive airplay.

At the height of their popularity and influence, Pantera began to self-destruct. Less than two months after the release of The Great Southern Trendkill (1996) -- an album ridden with allusions to drug abuse and personal destruction -- Anselmo overdosed on heroin after a homecoming concert in Texas, and as tensions rose between him and his fellow bandmembers, he began engaging with a growing list of side projects that kept him away from Pantera. A live album, Official Live: 101 Proof (1997), was compiled for release when it became evident that no new studio album was forthcoming any time soon. One final studio album did result, Reinventing the Steel (2000), but that was more or less it for the briefly reunited Pantera. The bandmembers once again went their sperate ways, forming such bands as Damageplan, Down, and Superjoint Ritual.

The end of Pantera then became official on December 8, 2004, when guitarist Dimebag Darrell was murdered on-stage by a deranged fan. This much-publicized murder shone the spotlight back on Pantera for an extended moment, and amid all of the emotional outpouring and tributes, a consensus arose: in retrospect, there was no greater metal band during the early to mid-'90s than Pantera, who inspired a legion of rabid fans and whose oft-termed "groove metal" style bucked all prevailing trends of the day -- from hair metal and grunge to nu-metal and rap-metal -- and remains singular to this day, as defined by the vocals of Anselmo as it is by the guitar of Dimebag. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi

Chicane you're a little punk b**ch that probably couldn't get into any metal party's or even pay for a peace of a**.do us all a favour and jump off a cliff.
You suck a lot. I guess that's your job.
Chicane, you suck.
Nicko burrows his moms lipstick, high heels and pantyhose when he jams to this glam rock band. If you like this band then you're a cross dressing tranny like nicko252008
nicko252008
Far beyond driven, shedding skin is my fav. Glam metal, Motley Crue, Van Halen, Whitesnake, cindarella, poison, yes and even early pantera tried to mimmick poison. get over it, or just cry and whine about it. nobody really cares TROLL on...TROLLS VVV
It's not trolling if it's true. Google Metal Magic. Pandora is helping to cover up Pantera's past.

I apologize. comments?
Kiss mine. You're a grammar Nazi. Maybe I don't fell like being picky on a website. You don't have to be picky texting, why comments.
nicko252008
Ignore all TROLLS below, what's your fav PANTERA album? I like far beyond driven. It's put together well.
It must suck to be phil's mom, with phil always stealing her pantyhose.
I'll put a tampon back in once you put a bullet in the middle of your brain. No one cares about you. If you don't like the music, then go listen to some more of the s**tty metal you like, like 5 finger death punch and bullet for my valentine.
r.sevaldsen8 9 and hank303117 just prove that listening to Pantera makes you illiterate and kills your brain cells. Stop butchering the English language. @ dog ... You whine and cry more than Nicko. Put your tampon back in crybaby.
I don't smoke, I drink Sake
By the way, my real blog is Haohmaru Windy on youtube.
I'm 31 and have had sex 56 times. I have a step son and step step daughter. I have a life. I go out for rides not peter piper.
Why don't you guys just smoke some weed and take a chill pill listening to loud noises while high is all heavy rock is for besides smashing your head around but since you 12 year olds like yelling racial slurs I'm just going to get yelled at anyways since you have no life and this comment blog is all you have
I got a better college than you dog. I'm not that big of a fan of pantera anyway.
Pandora aught to turn off the commenting capability, all people do is b**ch and moan about the music, or create poorly thought out insults... Or spam unrelated comments... If only there were a way to block certain people's posts... Mainly these two clowns haohmaruofth e w i n d 6 9 and Chicane, both of your comments are 100% useless and unnecessary. . .
