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

I have an import copy of "projects in the jungle" and "I am the night." Those are 2 of their 4 albums before "cowboys from hell" was recorded and also when terry glaze was the singer, not phil, for those that didn't know that. Anyway, we all know dime is a guitar god along with tony iommi but his work on these early albums especially the 2 solos out of the 20 songs, you can hear how great a player he was even then, 1984-1985. I was lucky enough to see pantera on the fbd tour in 95 and @ ozzfest
Phil isn't from Texas, MooMoo. How about coming up with insults that don't make you look retarded?
One of the best metal bands, period, and probably the best live show of the nineties. Saw with Anthrax and my face was sufficiently peeled off.
Pantera was the heaviest. Ball smashing heavy metal band ever.. they're live concerts were f**king Epic! No one shredded like f**king dimebag...R. I . P . Dimebag Glad I seen you live!
I remember watching the reaction of the cops who were on security detail at one Pantera show... Like they were being tortured! Priceless!!
I hate how I'll never see Dio or Pantera live. Oh well
How does someone do that, and call themselves a "fan". What an a**hole.
F**king nice

Pantera!!!
@sergiosturg e o n Too true
Phil lives in his own Hell knowing that he never had the chance to make up with his friend Dime...we can only hope that Vinnie can find it in his heart to forgive Phil some day.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
People like murderboy give metalheads a bad name. We're in agreement that Pantera was the greatest. I wasn't dissing Phil, just stating facts and not giving an opinion either way but saying it's too bad that the 2 camps couldn't work out their differences. Troll away murderboy and sorry but your attempt at humor and insults is pathetic at best.
Pantera f**king rules i dont see why there should be anything bad pointed out when they have done so much for metal
