2.0 out of 5 stars Good band destroyed by 'singer', 30 Dec 2013
This review is from: Vulgar Display of Power (Audio CD)
Hated this band at the time cos of the godawful vocalist. All these years later i can listen back and see that, indeed, this was musically a very good band. Faultless musicianship really and the music itself is pretty damn good if you like your metal balls-to-the-wall. However my feelings about the voice of phil anselmo has not changed. Anselmo was the main instigator of the modern trend of shouty/screamy/emo type vocals which has been copied by multitudes of clueless metal kids ever since. Perhaps he thought it made him sound tough and the music more aggressive? well...it doesnt. What it does do however is make this album and all panteras albums practically unlistenable to me as a result.

Went to the high voltage festival in london shortly after ronnie dio died and this nobody had the nerve to gatecrash the stage to shout his loathsome grunting and growling over some clasic sabbath/heaven and hell song. Iommi looked at him with disdain. Dio was probably turning in his grave. In short then, a good band ruined by a 'singer' who is single-handedly responsible for 99.9% of all the bands on the likes of 'kerraang' TV who scream and shout and have turned metal from a vital force into a laughing stock. Nice legacy Anselmo.

phil IS pantera... without him they would have NEVER done what they did from cowboys up until 2004. dimebag and crew had the talent to do what could have been done but had no real direction or focus and phil is all they needed to tip over the edge and scrap the glam for the groove / heavy. i mean FFS how can you possibly say this when Phil is the one responsible for songs like Walk and Mouth For War, classic songs today and only possibly made great with Phil's voice. What the hell is the matter with you?

oopps... a bit of attribution bias creeping into this review I fear. That's a shame.
