In 1992, with hair metal hanging on and Seattle grunge coming into vogue, Pantera ignored all impending trends and released the aptly-titled Vulgar Display of Power, a work that signaled a return to metal’s core values: brutality, precision, and passion. While vocalist Phil Anselmo was the band’s fearsome figurehead, it was the rhythm section that really set Pantera apart. Drummer Vinnie Paul, bassist Rex Brown, and virtuoso guitarist Dimebag Darrell formed a telepathic triangle that served up pulverizing riff after pulverizing riff. Memorized by millions of aspiring guitarists, canonized classics like “I’m Broken,” “Walk,” “Cowboys From Hell,” and “5 Minutes Alone” are a Nineties answer to Sabbath’s “Supernaut” and “Under the Sun.” Even as tensions between Anselmo and the rest of Pantera marred the post-1996 albums, Dimebag continued to deliver unparalleled heavy riffs with “Drag the Waters” and “I’ll Cast A Shadow.” While it would be great to see “Yesterday Don’t Mean S**T” and “The Great Southern Trendkill” here, it’s impossible to nitpick a compilation that provides so much intensity. In “Goddamn Electric” lies Pantera’s eternal credo: “Be protected/ Your trust is in whiskey and weed and Slayer / It’s goddamn electric.”

Pantera. If you want the quintessential “put an end to glam metal” band, this is them. Look at that tracklist: sixteen of Pantera’s best songs. This album should really be dedicated to Dime, but seeing as most real Pantera fans already have all of their albums and therefore all of these songs, it’s too little too late anyway. It’s a very nice playlist, though. All of Pantera’s most popular songs are in here, so it might be worth making a playlist out of. Because this is a greatest hits album, there’s no highlights or lowlights, just pure Pantera energy at its finest.
Best Band from 1990-2000
This album kicks butt big time. The best or must own songs are tracks 1-9 and Revoultion Is My Name, Drag the Waters, Godamn Electric, and Cat Scartch Fever.

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…
