180g Vinyl Cut from Original High-Definition Masters!
Critics writing about Pantera fall over themselves in search of adjectives to describe the fiercely independent foursome: Boot kicking A Metal massacre Crushing Searing - the list goes on and on.
Pantera's incredible rise to the top of the metal heap has been nothing short of miraculous when you consider theyve made their historic climb with virtually no radio support or MTV exposure. With 4 platinum albums under their belt, 3 gold home videos and 2 Grammy nominations, Pantera are finally garnering the recognition they deserve. Relentless touring since 1990s breakthrough album Cowboys From Hell, has seen them go from local Texas phenoms to mortifying trailblazers of the legendary Ozzfest. Touring with their idols was one of the highlights of Pantera's career.
Now, fans can re-experience the good old days of the hell-raising Pantera's music with three early releases, 1990's Cowboys From Hell, 1992's Vulgar Display of Power and 1994's Far Beyond Driven.
One of the most influential heavy metal albums of the 1990s, Vulgar Display of Power is said to have played a major role in defining post-thrash metal, slowing down the tempos and incorporating a harder-edged vocal style.
Cut from the original high-definition masters and spread over 2 LPs for ultimate sound quality, this is Pantera as you've never heard them before!
"One of the most influential heavy metal albums of the 1990s, Vulgar Display of Power is just what (it) says: a raw, pulverizing, insanely intense depiction of naked rage and hostility that drains its listeners and pounds them into submission. Even the ballads, "This Love" and "Hollow", have thunderingly loud, aggressive chorus sections." - Steve Huey, Allmusic
"The Rhino reissue is a template for satisfying vinyl junkies. The 180-gram, two-disc gatefold LP was remastered from the original analog tapes by cutting maestro Doug Sax. Sonics are cataclysmically pristine right down to Anselmo's shredding vocals - but demand a high-output system with unfettered dynamics." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, October 2010
