  • You know….true story. During a tour in 96 with White Zombie Phil said during his set how Metallica was 1 of his favorite bands but their new album sucks. Crowd went crazy. That was the night Phil overdosed on Heroin and I was there. 1 of the greatest shows I've ever been to….and I've been to some good ones like Tool on the Aenima tour.

  • Hard lines, sunken cheeks and every track on that album is so fucking amazing

  • 25 years is one of my all time favorite songs which happens to be off of this album, pantera's best album. That ending riff will slap you in the face and kick you in the balls every time you hear it. "We're fucking you back, fucking you back!" Fuck yeah

  • What does haircuts have to do with anything? Your hair doesn't make you talented and a band just saying. That is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard in my life. So what you don't need to look a certain way to be a musician and be in a band. Why do so many people judge a band by their looks vs the music they put out? Ignorance is bliss I guess I don't know what the hell people are thinking when they don't like a band because what they look like it's absolutely ridiculous if you ask me. This is for the stupid people judging bands by what they look like so ridiculous grow the hell up will you. I saw a few ridiculous comments about what a band looks like so I figured I would say something about it. You can wear your hair however you fucking want to and dress whatever way you want to it doesn't make you a good or bad band your looks can I please slap the assholes saying that shit please slap.

  • Actually the members of Pantera were given a chance to capitalize on why Metallica was popular. But when Metallicas management brought them to a big gay Hollywood heads orgy,Pantera said collectively "NO WAY! We would rather starve in oblivion than suck up like Metphagula

  • Metfagulla has always been a sell out. I can't stand their guitar player ever if Joe Satriani taught him doesn't mean a thing. The guy hasn't learned shit from Jeff Beck even though he was onstage with him. Same goes for that drummer. Married a Nielsen chick and was pissed off she didn't have a dick. Enough said.

  • Fuck I'm old,
    I remember when all Pantra albums came out,
    One band I so badly wished I could of seen in concert

  • Yet dime sounds like James Hetfield on rhythm guitar….but I still prefer cowboys over any other Pantera…. actually far beyond driven is my least liked Pantera album, I never understood how anyone can like it over vulgar or cowboys

  • I never got to see Pantera live. I’ve seen Hellyeah a couple times and I saw Phil. He was opening for Metallica with Down. Strange how things work out. Metallica didn’t have to let them play, they can get whoever they want open for them. Say what you will, but Met has been great for metal beyond their music catalogue.

  • I graduated in 93, saw Pantera 12 times… METAL WOULD NOT BE WHAT IT IS TODAY IF NOT FOR THESE HARD CORE MOFOZ!!! GOD SIZED!!! WE LOVE YOU ALL… MISS YOU DIMEBAG!!! PANTERA WILL ALWAYS BE,,, THE BAND THAT CHANGED IT ALL!!!

  • Why on Earth Pantera would want to become Metallica. Pantera is better by far. End of the discussion

  • My favourite 2 albums from them have to be Cowboys From Hell and Vulgar Displays of Power.

    Reply
  • Hey man to you who's favorite song is slaughtered mine is strength beyond strength especially the vocals after the solo but to me it's a tie on favorite song either shedding skin or use my third arm that's just my opinion I've got many pantera tattoos saw them on reinventing the steel tour and saw damageplan the in April of course the same year dime was murdered anyway I'm a diehard fan of pantera until music is no more oh yeah and you can't beat suicide note part 2 fuckin killer

  • I love phil but I'm tired of the "bad back" excuse for abusing heroin. I know lots of people with much more strenuous jobs who have horrible backs, they didnt have to start using heroin to deal with it. They went to therapy or went through surgery. Like I said, I love phil, but he should start being honest and just say he became addicted to heroin instead of giving us his bad back stories.

    Reply
  • Because they have a racist heroin addict egomaniac as a lead singer while Metallica are very welcoming to any and all types of humans.

    Reply
  • I saw superjoint ritual at an ozzfest one year with slayer, lamb of god, Judas priest and others…Phil spent more time talking than playing he got booed off stage. I realize Dime and Vinnie were good but to lift them up over Metallica, one of the metal bands that paved the way and are still going 20 years later is kind of absurd.

  • Pantera hands down. Vinnie Paul hit drums so hard, you would have to catch your breath in between beats in the pit.

    Slayer
    Sepeltura
    Pantera

  • Pantera was/is far from being a legendary band. They are only big is the USA. Of course they are known in other countries, but they are just one of the bunch. Yes I like pantera and as a fan gotta recognize ,they aren't legendary, out of the USA.

  • Philip becoming a heroin junkie destroyed Pantera.

    Reply
  • Sorry if this pisses anyone but IMO…

    …Why would they?, they are way better when in comes to Heavy Metal in general, no shitty Load and Reload-like albums. Even the Glam era packs more punch than anything they recorded past Black Album.

  • Pantera didnt want to be Metallica because they sold out. Pantera was all bout not being a sellout

    Reply
  • Its not that pantera didnt want to become metallica, its that they didnt have the songwriting ability to
