Product Description

PANTERA Vulgar Display Of Power (1992 German 11-track CD picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

Upon its release in the mid-1990s, Pantera's Vulgar Display of Power proved that, even in an era of alternative rock supremacy, heavy metal fans were still a force to contend with. Blending eerie, surging grooves with thrashy speed metal riffs, Pantera created a bleak, oppressive disc that captured both ends of the speed spectrum without resorting to clichi, abrupt tempo shifts. Guitarist Diamond Darrell plays with as much crunch as the best Metallica, while vocalist Phil Anselmo screams loud enough to satisfy any GBH fan. Coupled with Vinnie Paul's insistent, double bass-drum onslaught, you're left with an album that'll shake the fillings out of even the strongest teeth. --Jon Wiederhorn

From the first blasts of 'Mouth for War' to the dying strains of 'Hollow' this album remains one of the best metal albums to come out of the nineties. There is a not a single disappointing song, and most songs have frequently been aired at rock clubs across the world. As the name suggests, it's not for the faint-hearted, so it's appeal is probably restricted to those who already have an interest in metal. However anyone who has only recently got into metal will love it (anyone who has been into metal for a while will already have it). One of the most impressive aspects of this album is the production. Despite having been released more than 15 years ago the sound is really fresh and sounds like it was recorded just the other day. Buy it now - you'll love it.

If only Pantera were still around today. Who knows how many more great albums they have made. Vulgar Display of Power is usually seen as their best album, and for good reason. One of the main reasons is just because the album was so heavy and aggressive. I have never seen a more fitting album title. One the intense opener Mouth For War gets underway with its absolutely crushing main riff, we can tell that this album will be as skull-pounding as anything you've ever heard before.
The band certainly decided to increase the heaviness this record, especially vocal-wise. Singer Phil Anselmo forgets about singing high notes for the most part and intsead creates an unhinged miliataristic roar style of vocals, creating perhaps the ultimate metal voice. His aggressive style was very brutal which fitted very well with Dimebag's monstously heavy riffs, but was clearly not a death growl. Every member of the band plays to their limit, especially Dimebag whose massive riffs and incredible guitar solos drove the album. All this resulted in a stone cold metal classic. The songs here are mostly very aggressive, heavy and groovy. Even the semi-ballads This Love and Hollow have some very heavy sections. The album is more consistent than Cowboys From Hell and so all the songs are great and infinitely listenable.
It should be known by all metalheads just how important a release this album was back in '92. It not only brought metal back on track after the grunge movement, it also created the groove metal movement, leading the way for bands like Machine Head, Sepultura and Korn to follow.
Overall, this album is as much a metal classic as Master of Puppets, Reign in Blood, Paranoid and The Number of the Beast. It is an absolutely thunderous listen, with a huge sense of aggression and groove. It'll make you bang your head like crazy and it will also make you laugh at all those ridiculous MTV-based emo posers who believe that they are real metal. Metal doesn't get a lot better than this.

What can I say that hasn't already been covered? This is one of the best metal albums, no best albums of all time. From the aggressive collection of mind-melting riffs of opener 'Mouth For War' to the one part ballad, ond part thrash metal riff fest that is 'Hollow' this album reeks of sheer class, attitude and musical greatness.
The riffs are relentless and every single one is a peach, Dimebag's superb soloing adds to every song and are so memorable you'll be humming along to them after the first listen. Vinnie Paul's drumwork is flawless and is Rex's unique bass tone, while Phil Anselmo flexes his vocal muscles and shows of his wide range with ease. From Hardcore bark, gut-wrenching screams to melodic prowess, Phil does it all efforlessly.
The production at the time was superb and has aged very well.
As for the extras, the bonus song 'Piss' is great and although it heavily borrows one of the outro riffs to 'Use My Third Arm' off the 'Far Beyond Driven' album is nonetheless a welcome addition to the Pantera rarities collection and features a great, trademark Pantera 'Power-Groove' riff and well as some great fills.
The live performance in Italy is great and really does record how great a live band Pantera were in their heyday and how sorely the metal community misses a band of their ferocity and musicality. The singles videos are great too.
But this, you won't regret it!

The album starts with Mouth for war, which is a fantastic song, with a strong first riff that just hits the spot. This is a musical work of art and a must have for any metal fan. A new level is brilliant, what more can i say. Walk has got to be one of my all time favourite songs, what a riff, what lyrics brilliant. Fucking hostile, the name says it all, want anger, got anger. This love starts brilliantly building into a climax not to dissapoint even the most enthusiastic fan. Rise... Loved it. No good was brilliant, and i would suggest listening to it LOUD.(as for the whole album really) Live in a Hole. Screams metal until your ears bleed. Regular people... Excellent By demons be driven... Beckon the call Beckon The Call Hollow... a final brilliant end to an alround brilliant album.
BUY THIS IF YOU DON'T ALREADY OWN IT. YOU CAN'T DO WITHOUT IT IF YOU LIKE PANTERA.

I have been making do with this album on tape for ages before finally getting round to buying it on CD i think its Pantera,s, best album
when i first bought this album i was blown away how heavy & aggressive they were when Dimebag Darrell left i was really disappointed
i was so sad after the death of the best metal guitarist of his generation. i was really hoping Pantera would have reformed, now we will never know.
